Critic Reviews for Atlantis: Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

Kids probably won't mind the phoned-in performances and dialogue, and parents will be grateful for anything that won't frighten or confuse their children. Although it's hardly a gift from the gods, Atlantis fills its niche nicely.

[Atlantis] was engineered to entertain families with older kids, and it pulls that off with reasonable success thanks to a trio of likeable do-gooders, an ever-rotating stable of evil-doers, and a much-needed splash of comedy.

As pilots go, "The Earth Bull" sped along too quickly for my taste, but the action was quality, the characters a joy to watch and the special effects weren't half bad either.

Atlantis is almost as cheesy as one of those Syfy Saturday-night horror spoofs.

It has a juvenile confidence that will serve it well, hearkening back to the likes of our own international productions Xena: Warrior Princess and (even) Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

This opener doesn't quite muster enough of a balance between humour and horror.
