Tin Star: Season 1 Reviews

April 9, 2019
The cast, which includes Christina Hendricks, is impressive, but it's dwarfed by the majestic scenery and dusty cliches.
April 9, 2019
It is limpid, anticipatory and entirely unfeeling. If all fixed points are negotiable, whether on the clock or the mirror pane, a viewer might take heed and stop following too.

Tim Roth's grounded performance as a troubled cop... is the strongest pitch here, but it's unfortunately saddled with overblown supporting characters and an intrusive score which feel lifted from an entirely different show.
April 9, 2019
The inconsistency of tone, the lack of urgency, and even the incomplete nature of the storytelling, made Tin Star a colossal waste of time and talent.

Nothing wrong with the odd cliché. But Tin Star is almost nothing but cliché and a terrible waste of a talented cast.

This contrived and unconvincing crime drama set amid the splendor of Canada's Rockies reminds us how easily shows like Fargo and Ozark could go off track if we ever felt a step ahead of the predictable action.

Tin Star becomes a cat-and-mouse thriller, where the cat has rabies and the mouse escaped from a genetic testing lab that left it with two heads.

Tin Star's attempts to out-bloody its predecessors backfire because the brutality is too cartoonish to take seriously.

Tin Star has all the trappings of a great crime drama or revenge thriller, but there's really nothing underneath.
