Krystal (2018) - Rotten Tomatoes


Krystal (2018)



Critic Consensus: Krystal hinges -- and ultimately stumbles -- on character behavior that beggars belief, defies logic, and finally runs well beyond the average viewer's ability to care.

Critic Reviews for Krystal

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (9)

Krystal feels like the result of an elaborate blunder wherein three different scripts were accidentally shuffled together and then - presumably through a series of hijinks - the director accidentally shot it all straight through.

So baffling that it must be appreciated at least for its ability to defy all logic.

Top Critic

Too forced, chaotic and randomly eccentric to make for a fully engaging and cohesive emotional experience.

April 12, 2018 | Full Review…

"Krystal" feels chaotic and thin, like a pilot that was also forced to be a series finale.

April 12, 2018 | Full Review…

This is the sort of determinedly quirky would-be comedy that induces far more cringes than laughs.

April 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Nearly everything these characters do goes beyond the realm of common sense.
