Critic Reviews for The Rain Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (8)

The Rain never gets to the point where you're pulling for the water droplets, but this is one barren wasteland that makes it difficult to care about anything other than surviving it.

But what The Rain lacks in originality it makes up for by remixing elements of YA fiction, postapocalypse drama, and cli-fi into a gripping kind of mashup.

A dystopian Danish drama driven by conspiracy fears and environmental catastrophe. [...] The three leads [...] are exceptional.

The emotional journeys of the young people eking out a tense post-apocalyptic existence pulled me in much more than I was expecting because every character is constructed with surprising nuance and balance.

The Rain is some of the best survivalist drama to hit screens in years, even if it leans heavily on the familiar tropes, with exciting, unpredictable and genuinely likable characters that keep you glued to the screen.

The narrative lacks internal cohesion and some of the plot twists, such as Frederik's motivations for his actions, strain credulity. Some characters, like the evil boss of Apollon, are not fleshed out enough to possess the requisite gravitas.

The beginning of this story accumulates topics clumsily and has characters that do not earn the interest of the spectator. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's not so much that The Rain breaks new ground for the postapocaptic-dystopia narrative. It's simply that it shows how much more ground there is to explore in that great big quarantine zone of a genre.

"The Rain" offers a thrilling tale of youths using courage and science to survive.

It's a damp squib, not a downpour.
