Ragnarok: Season 1 Reviews

February 14, 2020
Just six episodes long, Ragnarok is a low-effort choice for fans of supernatural teen TV, but don't expect any complex storytelling, or a particularly clever twist on familiar Norse mythology.

Despite being a bit over the top, this series is surprisingly entertaining, and manages to be so while consistently delivering strong pro-environmentalist messages.

Ragnarok also shows a surprising amount of zest. It is at its unabashed best when it leans into its weirdness.

Has a fairly shaky grip on its tone, but the YA drama works well in tandem with its smart adaptation of Norse myth, even if it doesn't quite stick the landing in the end.

Ragnarok should be on every supernatural movie fan's playlist. Not the story you think, and that is the best thing about this enormously entertaining take on a contemporary battle of the Norse gods and their adversaries.

The inevitable final confrontation ends up being disappointing and anticlimactic. [Full Review in Spanish]

A novel approach to the usual Norse legend story, and should be fun to watch.

It moves quickly, but Ragnarok's biggest problem is that it keeps stumbling into Twilight-style storytelling, alternating dour and portentous drama with unintentionally comical interludes.
