Fargo season 4 review roundup: Chris Rock series pleases critics
September 28, 2020 9:54:35 AM
The first reviews of Fargo’s season 4 are out. The Chris Rock star has received an 81 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with mostly positive reviews.
Critical consensus reads, “Although Fargo’s ambitious fourth season struggles to keep pace, fine performances and visual changes make for an engaging – if uneven – departure from the series’ norm.”
Fargo, the production of a Noah mansion, is based on the Koen Brothers’ 1996 film of the same name. Each season of the show is set at different times and locations. While the first season was set in 2006, the second season was set in 1979 and the third season in 2010. But the fourth season would go back to the 1950s.
The casting of stand-up comic Chris Rock in the fourth season of Fargo promised a comedic tone and more humor than the first season. In a teaser of the season, Rock’s character Loy Cannon promised that the Italian crowd is in the past and that the African-American crowd headed by him would control the underworld of Kansas.
Ben Travers of IndieWire wrote in his review, “Another exemplary cast amplifies wordless gestures and introduces strange lines to an already exciting recreation, with full breakouts by Jessie Buckley and Glynn Turkman, but this version of Fargo was the first Is weaker than. “
Chris Koengelista of Slashfilm said, “The Koen Brothers make films about quirky characters, but it would be nice if Noah Hawley and the team behind the Fargo TV series would remember that those films are more than quirks.”
Roxana Hadidi of rogerebert.com said, “Fargo has always been a little off-putting, but those elements are particularly nostalgic or egotistical this season, when its overall plot approach is so uneven.”
