Critic Reviews for Narcopolis

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

Narcopolis never rises above mediocre as far as story is concerned, building to a supposedly slam-bang stunner of a finish that's nowhere near as inspired as I think the director intends it to be.

August 22, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"Narcopolis" starts off intriguingly and ends solidly. It's everything else in between that isn't particularly compelling.

October 1, 2015 | Full Review…

There's simply too much going on to establish characters. More upsettingly - being that this is a sci-fi film - it's impossible to tell what the cool parts are supposed to be.

September 29, 2015 | Full Review…

This doesn't come together, but Trefgarne has clearly got talent.

September 25, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This British sci-fi punches well above its budget visually, it's a shame the drama can't match it.

Despite the surface sheen, and some enterprising plot twists, it doesn't entirely convince.

Audience Reviews for Narcopolis

There's like eight different fantastic premises at work her, not a one of which is executed effectively. Though there was some aspects to enjoy, Narcopolis unfortunately commits the cardinal sin of the entertainment industry: It's boring. Not from start to end, but frequently, particularly in the first two acts.
