Audience Reviews for The North Water: Miniseries

  • Aug 15, 2022
    One of the best recent miniseries I have watched. Beatiful photography and scenery, historicaly authentic and amazing piece of acting by all actors, especially Collin Farrel protraying an unforgettable character. Not for the faint hearted or sensitives viewers - portrays a brutal reality and way of life, and is really it captivating.

    This is show is superbly acted, gorgeously filmed with impressive production value and lastly it's really tense. Episode 1-4 are incredible and so is most of episode 5 and 6 but there is a part that felt quite drawn out to me. Overall still highly recommend.

    Brilliantly cast and acted. Farrell is brilliant as the twisted Drax with his dark, sly moral equivalency.

    Something about this dark series makes you watch the whole thing in one day. Left me wanting more. The acting is superb. I really enjoyed this mini series. Colin Ferrell makes an excellent villain. Hungover Sunday on the couch - pop this on and enjoy the next 5 hours.

    Colin Farrell and Jack O'Connell have encore performances here!...really enjoyed the 6 part series so much I had to purchase a copy for my collection...highly recommended!
  • Oct 14, 2021
    Simply brilliant to see 3 titans of acting, Farrell, Graham and O'Connell share the same screen. Dark, unsettling and magnificiently shot.
  • Oct 13, 2021
    blah. cool scenery and decent acting but too heavy handed in the plot. Long, cold slog that gets nowhere
  • Oct 01, 2021
    Exceptional. Well made, dark, ominous, 1800s flair with solid cast. Not for the faint of heart.

    Nowhere near The Terror
