News & Interviews for True Detective : Season 3
I just wanted a moment when the characters caught their breath and didn't feel like they were part of an overly-scripted machine. Now, having said that, this is still engaging, dark, complex material, anchored by a great performance from Ali.
[Mahershala Ali's] take on Hays enhances rather than overwhelms a story intriguing enough to justify the show's 35-year timeline.
A thin story spread over a lot of hours, but Ali is excellent and so is his support.
The criteria by which Season 3 should be judged is whether Pizzolatto lived up to his aspirations as an investigator of human nature. Really, he made a mildly engaging muddle.
I thought "True Detective" was dead in 2015 after a disastrous second season starring Colin Farrell. But there's life in this show yet, so long as the story's tied to a mesmerizing performance by a master actor playing a singular character.
Season Three of True Detective doesn't have quite the pulling power of the first go-around, in which McConaughey's revelatory performance immediately jumped off the screen.
Pizzolatto also came up with an engrossing and very haunting slow-burn mystery that reaffirmed his place as one of the most exciting writers working in entertainment today. Hopefully, he gets to keep making this show for years to come...
True Detective returns to past glories judging by the opening two episodes of its third season, with new leading man Mahershala Ali proving just about enough to revitalize the familiar formula.
Fans will eat this season up, and for good reason. It's smart, it's intriguing, and there's a dreary atmosphere that can best be credited to director Jeremy Saulnier
Come for the unravelling Arkansas mystery - but stay for the mesmerising tour de force that is Mahershala Ali and you won't be disappointed by this latest outing.
Ali isn't in every scene in True Detective; it just seems like it. The show is Ali's masterpiece, and the third season is the best installment since it premiered five years ago to excessive praise.
Audience Reviews for True Detective : Season 3
5h agoTremendous acting. Excellent storyline. While I was aware that Mahershala Ali is a fabulous actor, a once in a generation type, I was pleasantly surprised to experience how good an actor Stephen Dorff is. I had not seen him in anything meaningful since Blade and in that flick he as just an over the top caricature.
Feb 15, 2021Amazing acting, but a storyline that falls flat in the last half and is a snore fest in the last episode. You want the characters and story to become so much more than they pan out to be.
Feb 04, 2021Very long and drawn out. Deals well with the struggles of two detectives and their lives surrounding their obsession in finding two missing children. Buts it takes way to long to find anything of substance in that disappearance .... really until the very last episode. But then at the end of that final episode you, like the Detectives, just dont feel like there is "closure". Bad ending. I only give it a 3 stars cause the acting was great. Story not so much. It's a shame. Season 1 was and is one of my favorite tv series ever.
Jan 16, 2021Nic Pizzolatto is a genius. This season surpassed the first season In my opinion. Mahershala Ali is breathtaking in this. The story is brilliant and it wraps up the mystery perfectly. Brilliant television!
Nov 27, 2020The first season is the gold standard, one of the best television series ever created. Bravo to both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Should have stopped there because the next 4 detectives are nowhere close to their brilliance | follow us at @uncle.review
Oct 02, 2020Singular plot stretched too too wide such that it gets completely tiring, went through all episodes forwarding many parts just to see the end. And the climax itself was anticlimax !
Sep 25, 2020It has the same flaw as season 1, focusing too much sometimes on building tension than actually cutting to the chase. Nevertheless, it gets back to its roots with a GOOD cast and incredibly interesting twists.
Sep 25, 2020Yeah what can I say it started off well, was invested towards the end of the season really didnt feel interested to be honest. All the performances in the series was good everyone in the series really did very well. Just the story fell flat started of so well only to end in such a boring way. Much Love.

Sep 02, 2020Well, there was one great season, and one terrible season, so where would this one go? It was the best, easily. All the actors deserve accolades but then they had a great script to work with. At times the changing decades caused a little confusion but not enough to detract from this great season.
