The Luminaries

Critics Consensus

Lucious, but lacking, The Luminaries has style and character to spare, but those looking for a little more depth may be left wanting.

Critic Reviews for The Luminaries: Season 1

Audience Reviews for The Luminaries: Season 1

  • May 14, 2022
    Rarely have my expectations been so utterly disappointed. This show is simply boring, painfully lacks creative cinematography, charismatic acting and an interesting and believable story. It is not enough to rely on a beautiful landscape and a big budget. After having watched this cinematic accident I deeply regretted to have wasted hours of my life on this.

    Confusing and exasperating. Convoluted and hard to follow. Scenery is great and the leads are good but the series doesn't captivate or ever fly
  • Mar 18, 2021
    The way they jump around in time leads to a disjointed handling of the story. They attempt to make it more of a mystery but end of leaving it feel disjointed.
