Critic Reviews for Westworld Season 3

All Critics (54) | Top Critics (22)

Westworld wants to generate another existential conversation in Season 3, but even as the show swaps settings and introduces new faces, the details that make it come to life are perfunctory.

This is a zanier, sillier Westworld, and much more entertaining for it.

Mar 11, 2020 | Full Review…

This necessary reset looks great, but if the 2nd taught us anything, just watch, don't think.

Top Critic

Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan deepen their show's philosophical leanings.

May 22, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It's a thrilling, chilling notion that speaks to our contemporary fears about data-mining by huge corporations. Westworld might finally be about to deliver on all that promise.

May 15, 2020 | Full Review…

I liked this first hour even if it was a slightly scary look at where we might be heading as a society if we continue to let algorithms dictate our life.

Mar 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Despite our impatience with Dolores as a character and our up-till-now only minor interest in Charlotte Hale, this episode took the story in intriguing directions.

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

I think it was a smart decision to extract a big chunk of the show from Westworld itself, and I am already engaged with these new mysteries.

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

I'm seriously loving the fashion this season. And I like Dolores and her secret agent disguises.

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Despite its lesser ambitions, there was still beauty then, and elegance. But now there is only disarray. Now it's just a f--king trash heap.

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Even the weakest season of Westworld is more thought-provoking than most series and films. [Full review in Spanish]

May 6, 2020 | Full Review…

On the whole, though, this slick political thriller is a refreshing change of tone and a step up in quality.

Audience Reviews for Westworld: Season 3

  • 17h ago
    Erik Kain's article in Forbes titled "The Six Biggest Problems With Season 3 of Westworld" says it all. The show should have been cancelled after Season 1. The writers and producers blew it - BIG TIME! Aaron Paul was awful. Season 3 is like some new, lousy show. Season One was like Breaking Bad or The Sopranos. Seasons 2 and 3 were like CBS sitcoms "Rob Season One" or "Bleep My Dad Says." This show should be cancelled for horribly disappointing fans, and the writers and HBO Execs who green lighted Seasons 2 and 3 should be banned from working in the entertainment industry. BRUTAL

    Welcome to worstworld! I thought the second season was a bit dodgy, but this third season is the worst. Apart from Vicent Cassel who can actually act, even though his character is not credibly developed, the rest of the cast is completely dull. Aaron Paul who seems stuck forever in that same hopelessly confused character from Breaking Bad which he will never escape, I believe, didn't bring anything new to the show. But that is not really his fault, as the writers were so lazy that they prefered to use ideas from other movies. Remember that scene when Neo fights dozens of Agent Smith's copies? Well, now they just put a woman to do the same with a bunch of nazy guys. Really empowering! Or maybe you want to see a female copy of John Wick fighting and shooting bad guys from close range. It's there! As it is the universal soldier taking an ice bath, the monster robot ED-209 from Robocop and Terminator surviving a car explosion and a fire. Which would be good, of course, if there would be any kind of coherence, or any trace of genuine acting. But, unfortunately, it's not! Now, what would you say if you would see a flm called "The Martian" and the action would happen on Venus 90% of the time? Because you can hardly see any action in that old Westworld. And once you take the caracters out of their world, the show doesn't get any better. It's just a cluncky story with nothing surprising or at least interesting. They invested a lot of money in special effects, which are really great most of the time, but they forgot that a good show needs a bit more, like a good story and also good acting. But these things are missing and I will not waste my time on another season, as I already spent too much time on this one.

    Season 1 was intruiging, season 2 promised to be so but was not. season 3 just stressed my nerves with worldwide data conspiracy theory and other nonsense. An irritating blade-runner-eyes-wide-shut-2001-and-what-not stew.

    Too disconnected to the theme of the first season (which was phenomenal). I was late to Westworld so I watched all 3 seasons for the first time back-to-back this month. I think this made the changes between the first two series and the third even more jarring - I find it hard to fathom it was the same writers for all 3 seasons. Why are 2 all-powerful AI minds punching and kicking each other (again...)? Why should we care about the new bland human dude? Seasons 1 and 2 I watched some episodes several times before moving on to the next the story was so great, but Season 3 I almost fast-forwarded the finale it was so ridiculous. Season 3 for me was like watching some matrix wannabe generic sci-fi drama.

    Season 3 is an abomination. I was a big fan of the 1st two seasons, but this one was abysmal. First we had to endure the ruin of GoT, now the same happens to Westworld. What a shame!!!

    I created an account just so I can complain about how bad season 3 is. I couldn't watch more than 15-20 minutes at time before I got bored.

    Season 3 was meh. Some good moments but overall writing was not good, conflict was forced and the build up was just disappointing. Bummed

    So much easier to follow than season 2. Really enjoyed this season, can't wait for 4

    This season is reminiscent of the original TV series "Beyond Westworld" which is a good thing, paying deep honor and respect to the original two movies and show from 1980. The writers are back from season 1 and take the series to the next logical conclusion. Strong nod towards Shadowrun here, as Maeve takes on the roll of "Street Samurai", Dolores a Decker, and befriends a Shaman and Adept. Those who don't know Shadowrun or played any of the games will have no idea, thinking it's a poor knock-off of Blade Runner. Because of the cyberpunk angle, it comes off as near genius writing by Lisa and Jonathan. It's easy to follow and motives are clear. Casual watchers should pay attention to the two seasons before it. I found no problem with the storyline whatsoever and looking at the Picard series "synthetics" this executes the point with superiority. There is no clumsiness at all, and the lame "gotta save my kid" BS cheap-shot/viewer-emotional-blackmail is gone, thankfully. Dumb people won't get it.
