Critic Reviews for Vikings Season 4

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

It's consistently well-made, entertaining, and held aloft by thought-provoking ideas.

I have not given up on Vikings in any way. But I am feeling like it has lost some its emotional resonance.

Jan 25, 2017 | Full Review…

It's simply some of the best character-driven historical drama out there, filled with politics, mysticism, a fantastic cast of characters, and terrible betrayal.

Jan 12, 2017 | Full Review…

It looks like we're in for another great season of political intrigue, cultural clashes, fascinating characters, and, yes, even some kickass battles.

Jan 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Hirst's writing is so brilliant, I'm sure were in for another wild ride.

Azure-eyed ex-underpant model Travis Fimmel puts in a career-defining turn as Lothbrok. That his fidgety, howling, transmogrative performance has never met with any award is something of a travesty.

The depiction of religion in Vikings is what makes it extraordinary - specifically, what happens when belief systems spread and rival political hierarchies collide.

Nov 29, 2016 | Full Review…

It's a solid set-up for Season 4 as Vikings has never really been the type of show to keep secrets from viewers, smartly setting its eyes on the how and why rather than the what.

Feb 22, 2016 | Full Review…

Season 4 smacks wonderfully of the power of legend and how such stories are built and why they persist.

Feb 22, 2016 | Full Review…

Questions are raised and stories are underway, though I have no expectations on when to expect follow up/resolution. It's the nature of the show. Though what was here was good.

Audience Reviews for Vikings: Season 4

  • Jul 05, 2019
    With this season Vikings goes from fun historical drama to being on par with Game Of Thrones in terms of the plots completely and political intrigue. Strong performances from every actor and some of the best battle scenes on television.

    I hated the Hagnar's death...
  • Jan 01, 2019
    Season 1, 2 and 3 were better.
  • Dec 05, 2018
    Not as good as the earlier seasons, but I still want to see more!

    So sad that its come to an end Vikings is one of the best shows, very well portrayed and acted. Love the wardrobe and hair choices. The sons of ragnar, was a very neat change of pace and fresh blood to keep the show going. Interested to see where it goes.

    Sad. Loved the series until They flashed forward 12 years. Ragnar’s grown sons are silly and weird and I’ve lost interest in the show. :(
  • Nov 06, 2017
    Emotion driven, visually appealing and perfectly carried by the actors. Season 4 takes us for a ride along with the characters as we get to feel very strong emotions for characters we've been invested on since the first season. Mindful writing and magestic filmmaking make this a proper follow up to the great season 3.

    Season 4 part 1 (10 episodes) really picked up massively and felt it had a massive boost in production value to create some really fun and creative battle set-pieces to match most films. Plus the continuation of fabulous writing and the twists in the storyline adds to that whole new level of fun. A strong recommendation to history and total war (videogame) nerds. However, at the moment I don't like the way part 2 of season 4 is going.

    S4. Best they could do? Ragnar on drugs? Just silly. Love the show but s4 was just goofy. War on drugs, Vikings style.
