News & Interviews for Rebel: Season 1
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.
Lackluster, violent crime series addresses racial issues.
Rebel is a clichéd, melodramatic mess of a show with too few bright spots.
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.
