Critic Reviews for Queen of Swords: Season 1

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

With more humor, "Queen of Swords" could be fun, but the hour of mostly bad dialogue... offers little hope of that.

The best part about this hour-long series is Jose Feliciano's rousing opening song, "Behind the Mask." From there, it's downhill.

September 23, 2019 | Full Review…

In what must have been a prerequisite for the show, a few members of this underwhelming cast have invested their time in fencing lessons. What they really required, however, was more acting lessons.

The plotlines of this new series may rate high on the cornball scale, but the inviting Andalusian landscapes, the well-executed action sequences and the swift pace of the series could earn this newcomer a dedicated fan base in the months ahead.
