    The first episode was incredible. Intense, disturbing, intriguing. But with the second episode everything goes downhill.

Intense, disturbing, intriguing. But with the second episode everything goes downhill. The characters introduced in Mexico are very flat, they hardly every speak (especially the nephew, who just sits there brooding). There's too much of a pause between each line of dialogue and the long panning shots start to become a chore. It's a real shame as there's a lot it had going for it, the amazing music by Cliff Martinez of course, the cool plot line established in the first episode, with this corrupt cop trying to balance his love life whilst staying alive. Then it all gets very dull. Expand

    This series looks great, but its super slow pace and that it's largely creepy (in a bad way) and nonsenscial make it almost unwatchable. Cristina Rodlo is undeniably a captivating on screen presence. I'm sure Miles Teller is doing what he's told to do, but it would have been much better had he ignored the director and spoke at a normal pace.

What we see and the way people act make me think, that Refn is an idiotic creep, who thinks he's subverting the very thing he is doing without subverting it at all. Expand

    Don't let the poor pacing distract you from the poor everything else.

    What to praise in a show like this? The costuming? The guy who held the boom mic? Surely someone involved was doing good work, but whoever they were, they certainly didn't have any creative control.

    [A] limping, baggy megillah, which fails to justify its marathon-length running time as anything more than a self-satisfying, hardboiled-by-numbers folly.

    Stylishly crafted but stultifyingly dull. ... Jesus had better be some kind of savior if Too Old to Die Young is going to be more than just a ponderously portentous sleazefest shaken out of its torpor by the occasional bloodbath. [Prime Video only screened episodes 4 and 5]

    Viewed as a single unit, the episodes were a mixed bag of self-serious storytelling and pulpy action, with whispery exchanges that drag on for minutes at a time, set against Refn’s standard subterranean vision of an ominous modern-day Los Angeles. [Prime Video only screened episodes 4 and 5]
