Critic Reviews for Spy City Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Spy City is sometimes entertaining and often well-acted, but the missteps of its finale call into question its overall intentions.

Apr 14, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Smart and stylish, AMC+'s Spy City captures a tumultuous time and place in world history...

Apr 20, 2021 | Full Review…

Any fan of those authors will want more character-based nuance scattered among the clandestine meetings, predictable double-crosses and Wikipedia-deep exploration of the Cold War.

Apr 15, 2021 | Full Review…

Everyone might be telling the truth, which is what makes Spy City as engrossing as it is.

Apr 15, 2021 | Full Review…

The cinematography is elegant, and the production design accurate. It's a well-made show, if not necessarily a well-written show.

Apr 19, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

William Boyd, the creator and main screenwriter of Spy City, skillfully recreates the miasma of intelligence treachery of 1961 Berlin without pushing into high-camp James Bond territory.

Apr 16, 2021 | Full Review…

It helps that the acting and production design are both excellent.

Apr 16, 2021 | Full Review…

Written by William Boyd and directed by Miguel Alexandre, the six-episode series is a glossy spy thriller paint-by-numbers, everything we've seen before, in really nice trappings.

Apr 15, 2021 | Full Review…

Dominic Cooper is so good that you'll find yourself wishing he would play the character for the rest of his life. By turns brooding, calculating, arrogant, funny, reckless, charming, and ruthless, he's about as perfect for the role as anyone could hope.
