Critic Reviews for Reef Break Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The pilot's main crime story is unremarkable until it becomes ridiculous.

Jun 20, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The only thing deep about Reef Break is its silliness. Yet splashing in the shallows can, for those in the right temperament and in need of brain-off summer fare, have its pleasures too.

Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Generic crime show combines crime and summery surf vibes.

Jul 17, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The banter isn't funny or all that interesting, the chases are boring, and the mysteries that Cat is trying to solve are pretty obvious...

Jun 20, 2019 | Full Review…

A mindlessly breezy crime drama that would have been a decent fit on USA back in its "blue sky" days.

Jun 20, 2019 | Full Review…

ABC's "Reef Break" is everything that CBS' "Hawaii Five-0" should be - breezy, bright, a wee bit sassy, a whole lot silly, the ideal summer show to catch as a nightcap before bed.

Audience Reviews for Reef Break: Season 1

    Different type of crime drama with island scenes and a cast that sucks you in. Give it a chance, its good! Its a fun, exciting female lead and not the usual old man cop dective/ crime scene show
  • Sep 13, 2019
    Love it! Love poppy!
  • Sep 06, 2019
    Yeah, it feels like the producers seen Hawaii Five-O and said they could do it better. The show has a weak storyline that's uninteresting and difficult to follow. The acting is bad/uninteresting. The pilot's use technical resources like radios and cellphones is laughable.
  • Sep 02, 2019
    Ok but wraps up each episode too easily. Montgomery's character is too overconfident and not vulnerable. Makes bad guys and pollook incompetent.
  • Aug 30, 2019
    I love it, the show was kinda cheesy the first couple of episodes, but got better with every episode.
  • Aug 18, 2019
    Definitely one of my favorites for this summer's fare. The only drawback for me is having to suspend the belief that there is a fictional US protectorate that not only has one lone FBI agent, but also an oil baron, and if the FBI agent was undercover and married Cat, I have to believe IN IRL, if still on active duty he'd be reassigned to another office. But suspending that belief is not a deal breaker. I enjoy the grey area in which our intrepid anti-hero works in, and the fact that everyone knows they can't really trust her but need to all the same is intriguing.

    This show is sexy, sassy & FUN! The location is perfection. I really like the characters... I just can't get enough of this wonderful summer adventure escape! 😎
  • Aug 01, 2019
    It's fun, action filled with summer vibes! Poppy Montgomery is great as always! I'm enjoying it so far!
  • Jul 19, 2019
    I like this show. I really like poppy as an actress and i think she does a great job!
  • Jul 18, 2019
    It's just boring. The crimes do nothing to grab your attention, and the acting and writing remind me of a school play. Snooze fest.
