Critics Consensus

Squid Game's unflinching brutality is not for the faint of heart, but sharp social commentary and a surprisingly tender core will keep viewers glued to the screen - even if it's while watching between their fingers.

    Buena serie, muchos huecos y lo único que me molestó fue la tonta muerte de Ali Abdul.

    Squid Game soared high with its thrilling and mysterious storyline. Would've loved to seem them tie up some of the loose ends, and feed the readers more information about the history of the games. Set design and acting was outstanding. Very enjoyable series.

    Could've easily been condensed into a movie. Too much of it slogs on and on, but when it picks up, it really picks up.

    Cool show. A bit predictable though. I cringed a bit at the VIPs voice acting, but I guess it had to be that way so that korean audiences would understand them.

    Every twist and turn is easily seen before hand. I'm unsure what all the praise is for nothing new to see here.

    The premise of the show and the first half was great. The last few episodes were decent but the pacing wasn't great and the plot with the cop was kind of meh. I was not invested in the story at all and felt it took away from the main plot. Also the acting of the VIPs was so bad that whenever there were scenes with them I just rolled my eyes. Good show but kind of fell flat at the end.

    Great show, lots of intrigue. Several characters are easily forgettable and the ending twist can be seen a mile away.
