he director Susanne Bier films Hiddleston and his many damsels in distress as if they were in a perfume commercial... [Full review in Spanish]
September 7, 2018
The Night Manager is so respectful of its chosen genre as to occasionally verge on parody.
April 15, 2016
The Night Manager goes down easy as a glamorous procedural, but its conventionality grows narcotizing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 19, 2016
The Night Manager was Mr. le Carré's first post-Cold War novel... Two decades later, the replacements he found already feel quaint, and the same can be said of this glossy, generic adaptation.
April 20, 2016
All the permutations of its plot, however grisly and threatening, never dominate the show in the way they are meant to.
May 23, 2016
An elegant but ultimately empty John le Carré adaptation, starring Hugh Laurie.
October 17, 2017
This is a GORGEOUS television series, with jet-setting locales and a series of extremely well-fitted suits for Hiddleston.
August 24, 2017
The Night Manager's plot never functions by obfuscation or by willfully withholding important information. Instead, its story is one of clarity and momentum-not to mention nail-biting suspense.
August 14, 2017
Writer David Farr has updated the novel for TV. His referencing of current conflicts in the Middle East helps give The Night Manager a compelling immediacy. It's a glossy, lavish drama and a Sunday-night winner.
May 25, 2017
It's intense, slick and definitely promising.
May 31, 2016
The brilliance of a show like The Night Manager is the tightness of its storytelling.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
July 31, 2018
The Night Manager is almost doggedly devoted to showing its steps, but that just makes the payoff feel earned.
March 1, 2016
With the enemy unveiled so early on-although it's certain that there's much more to be revealed about him and his allies - it'll be interesting to see what surprises lay ahead.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
April 20, 2016
No matter how calm Pine appeared to be in his scenes with Roper, the tension was taut.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
March 1, 2016
Everything about this show just screams quality - from the cast to the gorgeous location work and cinematography right down to the gorgeous title sequence.
April 14, 2016
On AMC's The Night Manager, at last, the sheer fun of tradecraft is back.
February 22, 2016
(Hugh Laurie's and Tom Hiddleston's) performances have a gold-standard feel to them, in that you can't imagine anyone else as either character.
September 21, 2016
I'm hooked.
May 20, 2016
From the undulating shapes and symbols in the opening credits to Hiddleston's enigmatic, slightly perturbing performance as the show's hero, the entire product feels like nothing so much as the world's most elaborate audition tape for 007.
April 19, 2016
Bier-a rare female in the male-dominated field of TV directing-gets all the credit from her cast for giving Le Carré's story such a stylish update.
