Critic Reviews for The Red Line Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (10)

Red Line force-feeds more than it should. It has some messages of true value while also failing to resonate to the degree it could have and should have.

Top Critic

It's not subtle, but it is smart. It's openly emotional, but rarely manipulative. It, too, wears its heart on its sleeve, a quality that enables it to get the best of its occasional heavy-handed dialogue...

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Often worthy and heartfelt, "The Red Line" still can't get its arms around the real-world pain and suffering (and consequences) that it has to get its arms around.

Apr 24, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

Heartfelt series explores racial bias, violence in Chicago.

May 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The issue with The Red Line is that the show moves from plot to plot with the only one being interesting is the shooting that started it all.

May 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Though I appreciate the show seems to be using the sympathetic white cop as a Trojan horse to talk about systemic racism, it's also not a good drama. It's schlocky and ham-fisted, and to be honest, mostly dull.

Apr 30, 2019 | Full Review…

The drama ultimately arrives at the destination you knew it would right from the opening moments.

Apr 29, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

The performances and shaded characters in The Red Line make up for the show's flaws.

Apr 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Amid the sometimes overheated hubbub there is Royale, who brings the temperature back to normal. Even when a scene feels too obviously constructed, she moves around in it like an organic space, a real person among people in a movie.

Apr 26, 2019 | Full Review…

"The Red Line" harnesses the power of simple storytelling calibrated towards the masses to probe painful social concerns, and to potentially change hearts and minds.
