Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 8

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1)

In the final six episodes, Game of Thrones should have felt like a game of chess. Instead, it veered very close to feeling more like a game of checkers. And that's probably why so many viewers felt burned.

It's such a fundamental shift of priorities that, for all of season 8's technical virtues and the sound resolution of a few story beats, it still can't help but feel like a betrayal of the show's ethos

It was a fitting end to the story.

Daenerys and Cersei are portrayed as too ambitious and emotionally unfit to rule the Seven Kingdoms.

Even at its wobbliest, these final episodes demonstrate a stunning degree of filmmaking skill that find even the weakest installments standing head and shoulders over most recent feature films of a similar nature.

Game of Thrones found purpose. Not to press our faces to the fire, but to show us those already burned, and teach us how to hold their suffering.

½

Not the strongest of conclusions leaving more questions than answers, Game of Thrones Season 8 leaves fans and audiences a bit befuddled and skeptical at the direction the stories and characters took in this tumultuous decade. 3.5/5
