Those Who Kill: Season 1 (2014)


Critic Consensus: In spite of its suspenseful premise and an effective performance by Chloe Sevigny, Those Who Kill is bogged down by monotonous plots and senseless violence.

Critic Reviews for Those Who Kill Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (13)

The writing here is paper-thin, the kind of scripted crime drama that we've seen too many times for it to feel fresh again.

American TV doesn't need to import things that have already become clichés.

Those Who Kill can be a tough watch, because it has some intense scenes. Fortunately, they aren't unduly extended, and for those who stick it out, there look to be rewards.

The mise-en-scène runs deep here. Everything the eye sees, the ear hears, the nerves feel. That amplifies the happenings, making the characters' air heavy, their energy so tightly coiled you await an explosive jolt.

Sevigny works hard at being complex, haunted, etc. while the show around her collapses into a voyeuristic mess with a denouement that makes one wonder how Catherine Jensen could possibly remain on the force beyond the opening episode.

Immersed in a darkly drawn version of Pittsburgh and loaded with leering images of young women tortured, this show is in need of an emotional connection, some semblance of warmth to rescue it from utter nihilism, but none comes.

Proof positive that sometimes it takes truly talented people to make something deeply mediocre.

I was almost instantly uninterested - not just in the crimes at hand, but in the interpersonal relationships of the cop characters themselves.

Mar 4, 2014 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

If it moves away from lingering on shots of torture and sees the virtue in developing its characters, it could grow into something intriguing. If not, then Those Who Kill could be DOA even with the superb Sevigny as its star.

This angle was sort of fresh and interesting when Cagney & Lacey did it 1982. Not so much now.
