Squid Game

Critics Consensus

Squid Game's unflinching brutality is not for the faint of heart, but sharp social commentary and a surprisingly tender core will keep viewers glued to the screen - even if it's while watching between their fingers.

Audience Reviews for Squid Game: Season 1

    I loved the character development and the sets were great. But I felt like the last episode was kind of boring and the ending didn't make much sense

    Brilliant series. I loved it. At first it was hard to understand the brutality of killings but by the 2nd episode I was hooked. The lessons learned and the philosophy of life taught from each episode was priceless. I can't wait for the second season. This was one of the best unexpected shows that Netflix launched.

    Absolutely incredible. I watched the dubbed version, and decided to rewatch the entire series in its original language with English subs. If you're not into gore, blood, or violence, it's definitely NOT for you.

    I didn't like the series. It doesn't make any sense. I would rather see a series with 20 or 30 seasons about the life of José Castelo Branco. Too ridiculous series, I don't understand how people like this dump!

    Aside from the politics, great watch! The originality of the sets, visuals and characters is entertaining and binge-worthy. Maybe a little predictable for those of us who have watched so many movies but recommended nevertheless.

    Absolutely brilliant. Great writing, every damn actor did a great job. The English dub is kind of charming, it's funny at times but I came to think of those voices as his or her's character's voice. This is not some Korean version of "Hunger Games". I found this infinitely more interesting and entertaining than "Hunger Games". It really is a must see.

    Plotholes so thick you might actuall bury the 200000 people they killed over 30 years.. in the same region. Even thinking slightly about the story of the movie hurts... 400-500 people per game, at least 12 seasons per year starting in 1988. And what about all the survivors who left due to democratic vote? They have thousands of people with the same story. His report to the local police should be more than a well known story.. and seriousl 200000 people gone even in a span pf 30 years.. thats murder on such a scale... it would impact the GDP of the country... whoever wrote this clearly has their plot development as high a level as the actual kid games.. yet stikl the acting was very great BUT the voice acting is beyond atrocious no matter if its due to bad directing or bad voice actors. For all the hype watching this was a very sober disappointment.

    It's good but too much character development that wasn't needed. Should have been ½ hour episodes instead of the hour long ones that most of them were
