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.

Jan 7, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Voltron: Legendary Defender: Season 8

    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.

    Pff, some people also find movie about angry birds very funny but that doesn't mean it's a great film, you know. Eat excrements all you want, just don't tell it's a delicious food, lol. Not to mention VLD isn't a single movie, it's a multiple-seasons cartoon and everything from plot to characterization of main cast from previous seasons was ruined in the final one. It's by no means 'not that bad', it's worse than bad.
  • Dec 03, 2019
    The low score this season received is a result of mass manipulation, mainly due to the fact the final season took some risks and made some decisions a lot of people disagree with, prioritizing pandering and fanservice over storytelling and good writing. With that out of the way I will admit the writing for much of the final season is not as good as it could have been, but was not a bad season overall. The show did the best it could to wrap up several plot points in under 13 episodes, and it doesn't do a perfect job with it's limited time. Despite this, the season as a whole is a fun and intense adventure that balances action and humor as well as in the previous seasons. It isn't nearly as bad as other reviews make it out to be.

    The waste of potential here is just mind boggling. It's been forever since I watched it and I still grind my teeth at how terrible this turned out. Honestly the whole season is sloppy and rushed. This didn't do any of the characters justice. It just feels like they could have gone in several different directions with this and they chose the worst possible path the take. Absolutly Disappointed.

    ''Kill them all, kill them all I'll destroy everything you love'' - that's apparently what turns out to be a motto of people who worked on this season/series. They didn't get a permission to kill all main characters, though, but satisfied their need of blood by killing one of two main girls for no logical reason (not even managing to made it look as drama, and with added epilogue it's look more as farce). It's not the only way they ruined everything - relationships between characters also falls or got erased and it didn't explained, as not explained a lot of things from previous seasons.
  • Oct 24, 2019
    You can just watch the first episode of first season and then watch season 8, because everything in between doesn't matter, as it turns out. There is no point to waste time and become attached to characters and their relationships, it's also doesn't matter at the end, you just gonna be hurt, so don't bothers.
