Critic Reviews for Rebel Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

In the two-hour opener - all that was made available for review - Singleton's first TV series has a nice retro vibe, but otherwise not much action, not much originality, and not much wallop.

Rebel is a show that delivers in unexpected ways.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Lackluster, violent crime series addresses racial issues.

Apr 19, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Rebel is a clichéd, melodramatic mess of a show with too few bright spots.

Mar 29, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

She's a nonsensical character. So the serious issues that Singleton and the show's producers attempt to address come off like cheap window dressing -- contemporary relevance used to tart up a most generic work of art.

This isn't your sociology professor's crime drama. It's your grandfather's, and it's dirty, guilty fun - not exactly good, on the basis of its two-hour pilot, but definitely not boring.

Fortunately, Truitt's performance keeps viewers on course even when the script meanders. She more than makes her character live up to her nickname.

Mar 27, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

In execution, unfortunately, Rebel is less brilliant. The 120-minute pilot released to critics is bloated and sometimes melodramatic; most of it is spent waiting for the inevitable to happen - for the good stuff to start.
