Critic Reviews for The Sinner Season 3

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

[It] builds that pressure about as meticulously as any other drama on TV. The main question as this season goes forward is how effectively that tension will be harnessed to illuminate something outside its own continuation.

The Sinner is going to have to start doing what it does best-making things smarter and stranger-lest it end up simply providing a more detailed version of what we can get elsewhere.

Much of the success of this season's story has to do with some smart casting.

The Sinner continues to surprise and to be unpredictable. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 22, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

In the end, when the show digs deep into its examination of masculinity and male emotions, The Sinner remains a standout like no other crime show on TV right now.

Apr 11, 2020 | Full Review…

It is compelling television, although again - especially with the episode-ending cliffhangers - it feels designed for binge-watching.

Feb 18, 2020 | Full Review…

The Sinner promises a dark crime steeped in hidden male emotion and you can't tear your eyes away from that dread.

Feb 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Chris Messina's portrayal of Nick is very disquieting. He has a boyish charm that never completely dissolves even when he's playing a brooding, serious character which makes him the perfect enigma as the heart of the tragedy.

Feb 11, 2020 | Rating: 4.75/5 | Full Review…

The chemistry between Bomer and Messina is obvious from their first scene together. Messina's performance as Nick is hypnotic and mesmerizing.

Feb 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

That's where The Sinner has always excelled: mystery. The series' commitment to slowly unraveling its plot layer by layer is unlike anything else currently on air.

Feb 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a tension that only builds throughout each episode, as Jamie is someone who is willing to do terrible things but will still ultimately process it as being someone else's fault.

Audience Reviews for The Sinner: Season 3

    Matt Bomer is brilliant, unfortunately that is the only positive thing I can say. I loved the other two series but this is a bit of a fall from grace. There are no clever twists or changes in the plot that make you think, instead you know where this is going from the start and everything is revealed not that soon after. This leaves you with hoping that there might be a profound psychological thriller to make it acceptable. Unfortunately, it still doesn't satisfy, the story is a bit "I just read Nietzsche and look how smart I am" mixed with "masculinity bad". The whole thing is just terribly disappointing.

    I guess this is one of those marmite moments you either love it or hate it judging by the reviews. I loved the 1st series but felt the 2nd series had too much to live up to and felt a little over ambitious which letdown the whole exploration into the human psyche for me, so I was not over excited to see a new series but I am not disappointed, this has me wowed like no tv has in years, the acting is spectacularly realistic and multi-emotion inducing, the storyline is riveting but it does need your full attention so you don't miss a thing it is very fast-paced at times and crammed full of twists and turns which have you thinking you know whats coming next but constantly surprised. for the best experience pause when you go the loo! lol! brilliant!

    Jessica Biel is riveting in this show. Outstanding acting, plus she is damn sexy!

    I liked the first season a lot. Second season was okay. Now I finished the third season. Was waiting for a surprise at the end but nothing happened. Hopefully there will be no 4th season. This is getting pretty annoying.

    Spinning out laboriously a very thin plot with ridiculous portrayals of detectives. Harry Ambrose would last about 5 minutes in the real world before being fired for incompetence. A waste of about 8 hours of my life. I don't blame the acting just the story line

    So so good from Matt Bomer, one of the most emotional performances I've seen and the story took me to a place I'd never been. Season One won't get beaten for writing but people are nitpicking this spuriously probably because they weren't focused.

    What a load of contrived rubbish. The use of existentialist references tripped into nihilism. Sooo tried to be novel and intelligent and edgy... It became an embarrassment

    Just finished it love it

    Wow. Fascinating TV. 👏👏👏 it had me hooked from beginning to end. And it touches on some very interesting topics. And the last episode was top notch. I just finished the season and I'm shook.

    I was waiting for this season like crazy. And what did I get? Such a boring bullshit. Ruined the whole impression of the series :(
