Not good.
14 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like Tim Roth, but he was not convincing in this. Christina Hendricks was likewise unimpressive, and her character and its arc felt shoehorned in. The rest of the cast was good, but the plot was a huge mess.

I would describe this series as "History of Violence meets Michael Clayton." I'd be okay with that (I like both movies) but there's way too much going on here in terms of plot.

The entire "evil oil corporation" aspect (the Michael Clayton half) serves as a kind of a red-herring; there's something to it, but the real focus tends to be on the History of Violence half, which comes into focus as the series progresses. The transition and interplay between these two plot lines is frequently awkward and annoying. I found myself wondering why the series didn't slow down and focus on one plot line.

The beautiful scenery and excellent supporting cast are mostly wasted. The series also has pacing issues that show up early.
