Critic Reviews for Sons of Anarchy Season 7

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

Sons of Anarchy works, in part, because it's designed as a soap opera for guys, wrapping emotional stories of family love, betrayal, sacrifice, scandal and murder in a mix of high-adrenaline outlaw action.

I'm a bit tired of turf wars and questionable loyalty but those common themes of the show almost feel like purposeful distractions here, ways to build tension and buy time until chaos erupts.

Episode four was the best yet of the final season, setting into motion actions that will have dire consequences for Jax and SAMCRO.

While it will be interesting to see the way Sons tackles loose ends, in terms of how the series explores shades of gray, it looks like it's all over but the shooting.

Sons of Anarchy could be the antihero drama to end all antihero dramas, but it'll have to shift into some new gears to go out in the blaze of ingloriousness it deserves.

The series is going down in the same manner it started: as a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.

Sons of Anarchy was like fine red wine: it just got better with age. Unfortunately, in this, its final season, it appears we're now past the expiration date. You never want your favorite series to end, especially one that that hooks you with drama as edgy as it has been, you want it to continue as long as it STAYS good. The show has always been about Jax, the protagonist in a modern-day retelling of a classic Shakespearean tragedy. And part of the allure has been the connection the audience has with Jax, an anti-hero we root for as he strives to keep his moral compass as injustice after injustice pounds on his soul. His son. Opie. Now Tara. In the final scene of the season premiere, while epic in execution, we lose that connection as he executes some patsy fingered by the real killer. The emotional resonance we've felt in the past regardless of what gruesome deed he is doing just isn't there anymore, as he tortures and kills this poor guy. That being said, the montage of scenes set to a cover of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is film-making at its best. Show-runner Kurt Sutter's original music selection continues to a show highlight. In the season's second episode, he overlays "Till its Gone" (http://bit.ly/10naIVR) by Yelawolf for the episode's ending montage which adds significant emotional gravitas to intertwined scenes. It's worth just to see these ending montages "until its gone."

Sons concluded with yet another incredibly weak season. This is a shallow, boring, soulless goodbye, which even worse, gets pretentious beyond belief, turning it on itself by becoming unintentionally hilarious. The SoA clichés are all here: "Thanks, bro" - followed by collective bro hugs that last 3 minutes; 8 minute song montages; time spent lighting cigarettes pretending to be deep and meaningful but adding nothing in the process, just ridiculously long running times that bore me to tears; Jax tilting his head to the left, frowning his brow, trying to convey emotions, etc, etc, etc. The plot is a mess from the get go, nothing particularly relevant happens for almost 8 episodes, where the "plans" to turn every gang on each other seem like a good idea for the club but will ultimately backfire. And it doesn't even backfire in any decent way, so fuck it. The writing got even worse and the song choices even more spoon-fed and silly. And that ending... JESUS! Couldn't be more obvious even if you tried, Sutter. Add terrible CGI, a very bad Vic Mackey finishing sentence and I was happy this was finally over. This was a show I actually enjoyed a lot from S02 to S04. But these last 3 seasons only make me wonder if the ones I did love were not me being in an extremely good mood to appreciate them and that's never good on any show. All we need now is Sutter cry-babying for more awards and nominations so we can laugh a bit longer. Seriously dude, writing a bunch of episodes for one of the best shows ever doesn't mean you can take the reins of something by yourself so easily.
