Critic Reviews for The Legend of Korra Season 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Why are they bringing this love triangle back? It was not fun to watch the first time, and I don't think the audience wants to watch it a second time.

Jan 20, 2021 | Full Review…

It's a challenge to give animated characters weight, let alone the scale of skyscraper-sized Kaiju fighters, but [Book 2] pulls it off.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

[Season 2 is ] a bit confusing, heady verging on nonsensical about the spiritual stuff, occasionally frustrating, highly spotty in quality control, but still, for me, more enjoyable than 95% of other shows on TV.

Sep 21, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

One of this show's strengths is establishing interesting conflicts in which the "bad guys" have a good point.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Book Two had a few problems here and there, but none that cut too harshly into the overarching narrative, and the animation finished strong. Overall, this latest season was a journey well worth taking.

Sep 21, 2018 | Rating: 8.7/10 | Full Review…

The writers spent a whole season creating this massive problem for Korra to solve, and then they pull a convenient solution... at the last minute with absolutely no buildup!

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

As much as Book 2 eventually managed to right itself, there was still a considerable amount of haphazardness to it, and that ultimately resulted in a frustrating, lackluster viewing experience.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Creators/executive producers, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, like Korra, have proven they are a force to be reckoned with. Patience in this case, is definitely a virtue.

Can we talk about how amazing the action is in this show?

Audience Reviews for The Legend of Korra: Season 2

  • Jan 12, 2021
    If the whole of the Avatar is big and weird, don't worry, THE LEGEND OF KORRA season 2 gets bigger and weirder as it journeys into the spirit realm, showing connections between the mortal and spirit realms. It also emphasizes the corruptive tendencies of power and how one must maintain balance to prevent drifting too far into darkness.

    Ties into the origins of the Avatar within the greater series, Great Watch

    The second season sucks. The villain has very poor motivations and Korra honestly sucks as an Avatar. How is it that everyone pretends as if she is rescuing the world? Honestly, I believe everyone else is doing much more than her. Lastly, HOW DID THEY DARE TO CANCLE the connection to the past avatars and on top of it trash Aangs name by making him a bad father. Honestly, as someone who grew up with the first Avatar movies, this is a huge disappointment.
  • Nov 23, 2020
    No one liked this season, because Korra is a bad character. The side characters aren't developed, and regress to the previous season.The villain is boring with poor motivation.
  • Nov 12, 2020
    The Legend of Korra Season 2 has a completely different and interesting premise than the first season, making for a great and epic adventure.
  • Nov 11, 2020
    This season was weird to say the least final battle was so ex machina like but it introduced me to my second favorite Avatar. Also some character stuff happens to I guess.
  • Oct 10, 2020
    The slick action, globetrotting, and themes of family (not to mention the hilarious parody of "Nanook of the North" over the course of the middle) are the driving forces of Korra's 2nd season, but in a classic example of a long-running fantasy going too far off course, the latter half gets choked on the overdone liberties and altering of the "Avatar: The Last Airbender" franchise's mythology.
  • Oct 10, 2020
    When I saw the score, I thought is it going to be a bad season. Turned out that was so wrong. This season is absolutely incredible. The two avatar Wan episodes are incredible, and the final battle is incredibly touching and emotional. What a journey!
  • Oct 03, 2020
    I don't really understand all the hate this season receives. I think the narrative is incredible! We get to see how the Avatar came to be! I love looking into the lore of this series and this made that experience all the more fun for me. The Western influences on the good vs evil element to the spirits is a little disappointing, but I think the way they tied it into the Avatar universe at large is pretty powerful. Korra is the first Avatar in a long time who gets to actually meet and communicate with Raava and that's really special to see.

    Is this really the same people who made the original show? I genuinely hate Book 2: Spirits. Granted, it still has the good animation and sound design to hold it from being unwatchable. That said, a few elements really hold this back. These are uninteresting characters, too many subplots, atrocious pacing, and Unalaq. There is not a single character that I like with the exception of Varrick, who only gets a pass for being somewhat funny. To be fair, the jokes did make me laugh quite a bit. The only other characters I kind of like are a baby sky bison and a talking mushroom, similar to how the phoenix and sorting hat are the highlight of Chamber of Secrets. The subplots also kill the show. The one with Bolin making movies in entertaining and has a surprisingly good pay off, but Asami's struggling business and Mako's stupid detective story are pointless and I wish they were cut. If they had been, maybe this wouldn't have been the longest season. The fact that this season is the one to get an extra episode shocks me. However, the key aspect of a TV show is the episodes. They are the miniature stories that keep you entertained. I must say, pretty much all of them are bad. The only exceptions are as follows: -A New Spiritual Age for the triumphant return of Iroh and Wan Shi Tong, but is awful in every other aspect. -Darkness Falls for the frightening Fog of Lost Souls, decent action, somewhat dramatic moment where a spirit is beaten to death by water, and the talking mushroom. -Night of A Thousand Stars for giving a great payoff to a pointless subplot that makes it all seem worthwhile. -Beginnings Parts 1 & 2 which told an engaging story that suggested new ideas, provided interesting history, makes a well-developed character in Wan, and sets up a really cool story idea where the dark spirit wreaks havoc on the world. These episodes range from very good to excellent. The rest are all passable at best. The finale is shockingly boring, the Civil War 2-parter is garbage, and the villain is terrible. Unalaq is a decent waterbender, but has no good character, his motivation is awful and convoluted, and he has no personality to speak of. He is truly, besides Korra and Mako, the thing making me groan and hate the season. I recognize episodes of quality in the season and some elements like visuals (granted the spirits and their world are poorly designed in their simplicity and over-saturation) and comedy are decent and even really good. That said, this season is slow beyond reason, boring, lacks personality, and even makes me groan. How this made it to TV while Book 3 was stuck online baffles me. I'll talk Book 3 soon.
