Critic Reviews for The City and the City Miniseries

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

The language is a gift for scriptwriter Tony Grisoni, whose CV includes writing for Terry Gilliam and adapting David Peace's Red Riding novels: this dirty-dark fantasy drama occupies an exact midway point between both.

Apr 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

[Morrissey's] unexcitable tone and air of long-suffering skepticism can almost manage to persuade you to believe some of this teetering nonsense.

Apr 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The careful work of this adaptation feels as though it will be well worth the investment.

Apr 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Skip it. David Morrissey's performance isn't enough to make up for how confusing the show is.

Nov 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The basic storyline may be thoroughly conventional; but only, it seems, as a deliberate counterpoint to the intriguing and highly imaginative strangeness of the setting.

Sep 5, 2018 | Full Review…

If the opening episode of this metaphysical drama left you a little confused, relax: China Miéville's source novel delights in misdirection in its early chapters, but things do get clearer.

Apr 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite all the neon and strobe lighting, it doesn't quite electrify. But at least it's smart without crowing about it, and it provides a satisfying level of humour too.

Apr 11, 2019 | Full Review…

It could all fizzle into nonsense, but I am on tenterhooks ahead of episode two.

Apr 11, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In this shadowy, chimeric place, the square-shouldered David Morrissey is an almost comically solid presence as Inspector Tyador Borlú.
