Critic Reviews for The Legend of Master Legend: Season 1

Maybe we don't get it either, but there needs to be more empathy or action in this black comedy for it to be worthy of [John] Hawkes' commitment.

It's not quite cooked as a pilot, but there's grit and spark to teen actress Washington, as if we're watching a star rising.

While the premise of the series is certainly interesting, the pilot is a little slow and tonally scattered. Still, Legend is the kind of guy whose character deserves further exploration.

The Legend of Master Legend works as an intriguing, somewhat distanced tragicomedy that's greatly helped by John Hawkes' performance as a delusional do-gooder who discovers that he can't be both a superhero and a husband.

The Legend of Master Legend is promising, yet slight.

March 23, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Director James Ponsoldt is always good at tone blending, and this pilot has effective Vegas underbelly grit, brief notes of fantasy, a little action and a couple of scenes of real sweetness.
