Critic Reviews for Godless: Miniseries

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (21)

Godless certainly doesn't do much to subvert genre clichés... But then, westerns were never about pushing boundaries - they were about entertainment, and Godless has that in abundance.

The Arts Desk

So-so Western is well-acted, but moves at a snail's pace.

Common Sense Media

Godless, with its cinematic longshots of unfettered Western plains, a moody and effective soundtrack, and a phenomenal cast, seemed destined for greatness. But unfortunately, the town of La Belle isn't just lawless - it's also a bit aimless.

Consequence of Sound

Unrelentingly brilliant.

Observer (UK)

The landscapes are bleakly arresting and the violence when it comes is suitably chilling.
