      Confounding as it is seductive, Murder at the End of the World is a worthy brain-teaser for fans of Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's offbeat storytelling.

      Previous Drew Gregory Autostraddle Plows a path forward for the crime genre. Dec 14, 2023 Full Review Geordie Gray The Australian There are a lot of meaty themes thrown around in this — climate change, artificial intelligence — which are interesting, sure, but not as tantalising as Darby and Bill’s romance. It is a giddy pleasure watching these two preternaturally gifted actors... Nov 28, 2023 Full Review Nick Hilton Independent (UK) It is played almost entirely straight, anchored by winningly sincere performances from its two young English leads (both playing Americans), Corrin and Dickinson. 4/5 Nov 18, 2023 Full Review Robert W. Butler Butler's Cinema Scene Holding it all together is Corrin, much praised for her work as the young Princess Diana on Netflix’s The Crown... It’s a haunting performance. Jan 25, 2024 Full Review Alberto Carlos Espinof A Murder at the End of the World falls somewhat short of what it promised... or what it could have been, bordering that line between the notable and the outstanding. [Full review in Spanish] 3.5/5 Jan 2, 2024 Full Review Morris Yang In Review Online Much of the series proves formulaic and tedious, notwithstanding the baseline tensions that mark any crime without a culprit, because the backstory intended to flesh out Darby’s motivation and personality has little skin in the overall game.

      Previous Michael H This was a refreshing change after the surprisingly dull and ridiculous fourth season of True Detective. Interesting concepts and story choices really kept my interest throughout. I don’t think it’s at the same level as Brit Marling’s previous series, The OA, but it a very enjoyable watch throughout. I look forward to seeing what she does next. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/24 Full Review Kate H MATEOTW was almost perfect. Which is pretty much what anyone can ask for these days. For those hoping for the magic and intrigue of Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij’s the OA will find something different in Murder, though most probably will not be disappointed. Emma Corrin plays an impeccable protagonist in Darby Hart, whose bittersweet story of young love and loss opposite Harris Dickenson as Bill/Fangs that is interspersed throughout gives this murder mystery a layer of depth and heart that sets it apart from most others in the genre. A somewhat anticlimactic ending is what keeps this mini-series from reaching its best. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Larry T If close-ups of Emma Corrin’s face and shots of her looking at computers were enough to carry a 7 episode series, I would have to give this series five stars. Alas, they are not enough. The setup for the story isn’t the most original, the pacing is slow at times, and there are many unbelievable moments. To be fair, the show exhausted my patience before I got to the final three episodes. If all of a sudden it took off and became a coherent, engaging mystery the last three episodes, then I will take back what I said and apologize. However, until I learn otherwise, my opinion is it is a stylish, mediocre mess. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Not R Very good performances from cast Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Patrick M This was terrible. The writing is poor. Author tried way too hard to be hip but needed to focus on character development and story. Directing and editing were bad. Too many flashbacks and most didn't add to the story. Should have been visually stunning with Iceland and an enormous billionaire's compound as the setting yet I felt like the snow was all green screen and most of the compound shots were in a hallway or dark room. The story provided no real action or suspense. Worst of all was the acting. The main character is just awful. She is an experienced actress and yet it feels like it is her first time in front of a camera. B movie quality. On top of her acting, the character is just not likable. I will avoid anything she plays a main character in going forward. The other actors also phoned it in as well. Clive Owen is the biggest name. He was believable as an obsessive and controlling tech titan but the performance was not special. I wish I would have skipped this series. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Marianna K Very original take on a whodunit. So ambitious and creative, I've not seen anything quite like it before... it was incredibly creepy throughout and ultimately disturbing. I can't say I enjoyed it as it was so disturbing, but it was definitely original. I kind of guessed a few of the twists throughout but that wasn't to its detriment, as otherwise I think the style and crazy environment would have been too alienating. At times I felt a little bored and I didn't really get the flipping between the 2 times - the 'past' story seemed pointless apart from showing character relationships, and for that it just seemed unecessarily complex when it didn't go anywhere.
