Critic Reviews for Trapped Season 1

Even without all these promising plot angles, Trapped was worth watching for its chill beauty alone.

[Ólafur Darri Ólafsson] may not be your typical leading man for such a drama, but he's why you'll keep watching.

It demands attention, but be warned that if you watch the first episode, you're as good as committing another nine binge-style hours of your life to it.

Seductive, involving, gripping...I am already, thoroughly, trapped.

Kormakur transcends Nordic Noir cliche with some uniquely Icelandic touches, from majestic Everest-style aerial shots of the icy volcanic landscape to the swelling, droning, unsettling score by...Jóhann Jóhannsson.

I'd say this series pushes that sense of disorientation even further. It's gripping, binge-worthy stuff, though you'll want to watch it with the heating turned right up. And maybe with a compass on hand, too, just to be safe.

Trapped is by definition slow-building and chilly, but if you have a taste for the genre, it could be a good Sunday-night alternative to NCIS: Los Angeles or Big Little Lies.

    Loved it! Must see!

    Seriously good acting, direction, music. A different kind of thriller, doesn't yank you to one side then the other emotionally. No cliche tricks. Just exceptionally good storytelling.

    Slow-burning, claustrophobic, riveting.

    Excellent series. Lets see if season 2 would be also good. By the way, the big star is that island Iceland. Breathtaking natture.
