Critic Reviews for Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 8

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (0)

By season eight, we are pretty much comfortable with what each hero is and what they can become. Various plot threads and character arcs that lay in plain sight finally come to play here; there are plenty of surprises, but each one feels expected.

Now that it's over, those moving on can list Voltron: Legendary Defender alongside Korra and Avatar as one of the most impressive of its time.

Jan 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Instead of being progressive, these moments simply come off like disrespectful, lazy patch jobs. Despite some attempts to the contrary, whatever Legendary Defender tried to do ended up being superficial and totally upended the social impact intended.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Season 8 manages to do the seemingly impossible by ramping up the stakes to the utmost, delivering the most powerful emotional resonance between our heroes and villains yet, and wrapping everything up in a tearful, bittersweet, and fully satisfying way.

Dec 26, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The vision and artistic pursuit of its creators, was never going to quell the concerns of its fanbase. But taken on its own storytelling merits, the final season remained true to the ideas of found family, collective spirit, and empathetic connection.

Dec 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Minor storytelling quibbles aside, the final season of Voltron: Legendary Defender captures pretty much everything that has made this series great... The story combines humor and character drama better than any season before it.

Dec 17, 2018 | Rating: 9.1/10 | Full Review…

The biggest strength of the season is how nearly everyone comes back to play some part in the final season.

    Amazing show from start to finish
  • Jun 17, 2020
    You really screwed up with this season
  • May 22, 2020
    It could've been great. Instead they'd made it legendary awful.
  • Apr 03, 2020
    Why they deatroyed such a beautiful show? Voltron had so much potential.
  • Mar 24, 2020
    I liked nothing about this season, it was one of the worst things i have even seen
  • Jan 25, 2020
    It's a pity that such a hard work with animation from Studio Mir got wasted due to bad writing and ignorance of people in charge.

    Until now, I've always been mostly trusting of critical reception. If somebody's job is to say whether a movie or tv show is good or bad, then presumably they know what they are saying. It's their job, right? And then I saw that VLD S8 has a freaking 86% SCORE by critics here. 86%? 86%??? Are they insane??? This made me wish I had never started watching the series to begin with, a series I used to love and recommend to everybody, and it got an 86% by critics??? I can never, ever take critics seriously again. If they think this trash is good, then I can't trust their opinion on any movie or tv show.

    It was pretty much shit.
  • Dec 27, 2019
    Sloppily edited at the last minute, as evidenced by disruptions in the background music and other inconsistencies. Abandoned the core themes of found family, glaringly protagonist centered morality, and content inappropriate for it's age rating. My cousin's daughter actually refused to watch the last season because of all this once spoilers and reviews came out.

    Some people will tell you that a lot of people hate this season because of its lack of 'canon' ship, and seeing how crazy this fandom is with their ship war I can understand why they'd think that way. But if you set aside the ship and just see it for it is, this whole season is still thatーone hell of a train wreck. I'd say it's only good for the first half, or precisely until the Clear Day episode, and the rest are just garbage. Because honestly, that's just how much I can remember from this entire season. I can't even remember why they were having that big final fight. I just remember a lot of explosion and big robots and some shit about alternate universe, and honestly, as a fictional story, that's just... bad. What even is the point of telling a story if your audience can't even remember the big finale? And that one garbage scene on the end? Big no. Don't you even dare look at me in the eye and say that it's a good mlm representation. That scene literally have no building up and have no right to be called representation. Oh, but it's "happening some times after the finale, so their development is off screen. Which is totally normal, just like in real life"? Newsflash, guys, but this isn't real life. You're telling a goddamn story, so TELL it. If i want to be surprised by some unlikely hookup I'll go to my highschool reunion. I mean seriously. Imagine if on Harry Potter epilogue you found out that Ron is married to Lavender. Do you think J.K can get away with a "Oh yeah but the epilogue is set 19 years in the future! A bunch of things can happen in 19 years! That's almost 2 decades! Ron maybe had a fall out with Hermione, who knows, just take it that in 19 years Ron will be happily married with Lavender Brown!" Like smh at the very least they've actually dated for a while in this case. What did that Curtis dude do in the entire series? Being a background character who emote from afar? I don't even KNOW his name until after I watch the whole season and going to tumblr. What a hot, messy garbage of a finale.
