Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1 (2017)



Critic Consensus: Marvel's Inhumans sets a new low standard for the MCU with an unimaginative narrative, dull design work, weak characters, and disengaging soapy melodrama.

Critic Reviews for Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (14)

To make something from a Marvel concept this blithely, wonderfully and resolutely weird demands time and budget and -- maybe most of all -- commitment, and none of those three things showed up to set.

Despite special effects up the wazoo, it's utterly devoid of magic or wonder.

Well, at least Iwan Rheon is back where he belongs.

Inhumans is legitimately the worst Marvel adaptation of the year (yes, even beating out Iron Fist). In fact, as far as terrible Marvel adaptations go, you might have to go all the way back to Roger Corman's unreleased 1994 Fantastic Four film to best it.

[It's a] dull [slog] overall.

It has hopeful and even good points, but these derive more from the use of the "magical Marvel makeup" that surrounds all its series and movies, than from the quality of the production itself. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1

Another spin-off of Agents of SHIELD, Inhumans is a lackluster X-Men rip-off. When the prince of Attilan (a colony of genetic mutants on the Moon) orchestrates a coup, the royal family escapes to Earth and attempts to marshal their forces and gain allies to help them get back to Attilan and retake the throne. Unfortunately the show never really gives the audience a reason to care about this power struggle. And, most of the Inhumans' powers are pretty unimaginative and aren't used to much effect. Also, the sets look cheap and reveal the limitations of the budget. There are no connects to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, which only further reinforces how unimportant this show is. Still, there are some exciting action scenes and the cast is pretty good. Inhumans had potential but no purpose, and was cancelled by ABC after eight short episodes.
