Critic Reviews for The Closer Season 7

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

There were a number of lighthearted episodes that never quite worked. But the dramatic material was, and still is, formidable.

Good start to The End and a major twist.

The Closer is still the same fast-paced cop drama. It's just that now we also have the subtext of finding out what road we take to the close.

As a series, its quality and sizable audience helped put TNT and its "We Know Drama" mantra on the map,... For that and seven seasons of entertainment, we should all say Thank you, thank you so much.

The show has just kept getting better as justice has become more personal for Brenda.

Tonight's return is strong enough that I won't miss the final six.

Jul 9, 2012 | Full Review…

Although a little too comic for some tastes the past couple of seasons, it is still watchable drama with a great cast.

Frankly, I love The Closer, the cops are like family to me after all these years.

Jul 11, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What would be an admirable message suffers for a lack of nuance.

Jul 11, 2011 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The show's increasing silliness had begun to verge on self-parody -- not the right drift for a vehicle that had won Sedgwick a drama Emmy.

Aug 14, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The intensity of the storyline and of Brenda's final few acts were jaw-dropping.

Aug 13, 2012 | Full Review…

This is Sedgwick's show, a star vehicle all the way.

Audience Reviews for The Closer: Season 7

    Ok, two glasses of wine. My wife and I have been binging on The Closer for the last (month). Kyra Sedgwick is good, J.K. Simmons is good and the writers are good. Have been addicted to DCI Banks, Shetland, and now The Closer. Also dug Goliath but done with Suits. Stay with the good stuff.

    This is a perfect law and order serial. Kyra Sedgwick is brilliant i this role and the supporting cast is also perfect. I've been binge watching it all over again. And it is just as good as the first time. I couldn't recommend this more strongly.
