Critic Reviews for The City and the City: Miniseries

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

[Morrissey's] unexcitable tone and air of long-suffering skepticism can almost manage to persuade you to believe some of this teetering nonsense.

The careful work of this adaptation feels as though it will be well worth the investment.

Skip it. David Morrissey's performance isn't enough to make up for how confusing the show is.

November 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The basic storyline may be thoroughly conventional; but only, it seems, as a deliberate counterpoint to the intriguing and highly imaginative strangeness of the setting.

September 5, 2018 | Full Review…

In this shadowy, chimeric place, the square-shouldered David Morrissey is an almost comically solid presence as Inspector Tyador Borlú.

April 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If the opening episode of this metaphysical drama left you a little confused, relax: China Miéville's source novel delights in misdirection in its early chapters, but things do get clearer.
