Critics Consensus

Though the world of The Witcher at times feels only half-formed, Henry Cavill brings brawny charisma to a series teeming with subversive fantasy elements and dark humor.

Audience Reviews for The Witcher: Season 1

  • 12h ago
    Far from perfect, but remains one of the few recent Netflix originals of any real quality. Great visuals, and a story that does just enough. Looking forward to more seasons.

    I unfortunately have not read the books. I have played the games though. I think the show really captures the feel of the games. The casting seems perfect, I was sceptical at first but they all smashed it!
  • 2d ago
    I've never played the games or read any of the books so it is hard for me to say if this is a faithful adaptation. It may not have been smart of me to watch this after watching Game Of Thrones since this show reminds me a lot of it. The Witcher may not be as good as shows like Game Of Thrones, but it is still good, well made, well written, well acted and I really like its jump to past and present. The first half is a bit weak but the season does start to pick itself up with the second half

    Hello, swoon! Henry Cavill. Engaging fantasy stories. I liked the design and VFX.
  • 6d ago
    If you've read the books, it's an very good adaptation of the authors original work and the format makes sense. The casting is excellent. The unconventional timeline format used to present the narrative is hard to follow, so one star goes away.
  • Sep 13, 2022
    Great plot, Nicely etched characters and well executed by the cast. Worth the time spent watching both seasons of this show.
  • Sep 11, 2022
    Henry Cavill is the only good thing about this, but is not enough. Terrible writing, and an awful adaptation of a great book series.
  • Sep 11, 2022
    The monsters could be done better, looks somewhat fake. Yennefer a bit too childish and screamy. But overall a very entertaining watch and smart dialogues. Looking forward to the rest of the series
  • Sep 08, 2022
    one star for Henry Cavil
  • Sep 07, 2022
    I was very much in favor of leading. Tragedy. I only feel sorry for Henry Covil. I like him very much as an actor. But here he made a mistake getting involved in this production. In this series nothing goes right.
