What does the press think?

Large screen :

“Thanks to the characters and the universe imagined by Millar, the series remains entertaining, but it will clearly have to heal its tempo, its narration and its artistic direction to convince further.”

3/5

“Not inherently unpleasant, this season 1 of Jupiter’s Legacy unfortunately lacks rhythm, action and density to live up to the comics of Mark Millar.”

2.5 / 5

Le Figaro : “Jupiter’s Legacy charms with its story of its origins dating back to the 1920s and the Great Depression, and sketches the relentless repetition of history. The academic staging and screaming special effects (…) on the other hand weigh down this great fresco in its contemporary moments. Blame it on a lack of second degree and on young performers not very charismatic. “

First : “There remains, at the end of these 8 episodes, this impression that Jupiter’s Legacy could have blown away, if she had been born 10 years earlier. In the current crush of superhero series, she struggles to make her way to the top of the basket. For the moment. Because we feel that she really has it under the pedal. “

Telerama : “Overflowing with narrative tracks, tensions between the characters, rhythmic and sufficiently solid in its structure to push us to go the distance, Jupiter’s Legacy is symptomatic of many big Netflix productions: it favors efficiency over subtlety, emotion over reflection, the tinsel on the graphic delicacy. “

Point : “To add its stone to the edifice of a new pantheon of modern, mature, morally ambivalent or at least tortured by their ethical contradictions, it would have been necessary to bring something radically new. Instead, Jupiter’s Legacy lazily plays the watch (…). The step was high, and Jupiter’s Legacy, alas, conscientiously descends the stairs. “

Paris Match : “Alas! by dint of Manichaeism and good feelings, the show misses its goal. We get lost in its spider web, which struggles to trace back to the genesis of these colossi with feet of clay (…). Not parody enough, much less scathing than The Boys (…), Jupiter’s Legacy would have benefited from taking itself less seriously. “

The Hollywood Reporter : “The series is ideologically void, which is surprising coming from Mark Millar, who seems to have something to say about the erosion of modern society and the corrosive effects of vigilante violence. “
