Critic Reviews for The Son Season 2

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (0)

It's a thoroughly decent exploration of the contest between ethics and burgeoning power, as well as a war of wills between a messed-up, morally "flexible" patriarch and his progeny.

Apr 29, 2019 | Rating: 7.9/10 | Full Review…

This is character driven action driving character, and truly artistic storytelling. It stays small, plays large.

Audience Reviews for The Son: Season 2

  • Sep 23, 2019
    Solid conclusion to the series that finds Eli McCullough morphing into an oil tycoon, only to deal with both new enemies and old. The cast remains excellent, with Pierce Brosnan continuing one of the best performances of his career as the ruthless but loving head of the McCullough clan, believing he is justified in his actions as long as it protects his family. He gets great support form the rest of the cast, with Sydney Lucas shining as his granddaughter who is the most like him. Behind the camera, the show runners create another complicated drama, bouncing between three different timelines now, from a young Eli as an Commanche captive, the adult Eli and a new one that shows just where the McCullough clan went. They don't shy away from complicated issues, from racism to homosexuality, with every character with layers of grey (you understand why Eli is so ruthless, even if you don't agree with his actions). While a bit heavy handed at times, still an effective Western drama, if only for Brosans's epic performance.

    Top notch, exceptional series. Cancelling such a gem is a crime. Loved every second of both seasons.
  • May 30, 2019
    Season 2 transitions well from season 1. As the season progresses it builds the suspense for an expected final climax. There are a lot of mysterious elements that lead the viewer to anticipate.
  • May 15, 2019
    To much identity politics again, the writers must be patting themselves on the back. This could of been a great show!
