  • David Hinckley

    Much of the real beauty of Power lies in the details, conversational and visual.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Created by Courtney Kemp Agboh, the Emmy-nominated writer/producer of The Good Wife, and fueled by a powerful yet understated performance by Omari Hardwick, the series captures the spirit of Fitzgerald's novel while telling a story that's very much of our time.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    The opening episode--already posted online--is a bit sluggish, but Power gets better in subsequent episodes. Starz, and Fitty, appear to have a winner.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Kyle Anderson

    The volatile combo of elements leads to occasionally sloppy storytelling, but the cast--particularly the icy Hardwick and the oft-nude Naughton--makes it a deeply bingeable guilty pleasure. [30 May 2014, p.115]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    While the series is not exactly imaginative or subtle (stretch limos, Chivas Regal, call girls), it’s surprisingly enjoyable.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Hardwick might be the most jacked actor working on TV and has some nice moments with Loren as he tries to reconnect with a love that has only grown fonder over the years. But the dialogue, slathered with f-bombs, seems lazy, and there’s not much ur­gency to the plot.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Power has some pull, but maybe not enough to win a tug of war. Its overall pacing could use a perk-up and its portrayals of minorities (who twice drop the n-word) might take more heat if 50 Cent wasn’t both calling the shots and rapping a theme song that includes the lyric, “I’m an undercover liar. I lie under the covers.”

  • Robert Lloyd

    It moves along, dutifully moving the players to their appointed plot points. And there are some nice performances; I would draw your attention to that of Naturi Naughton, as Ghost's wife, consistently a warm body in an often chilly show.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Power is fine but it doesn’t live up to its title. It’s not a powerful drama because viewers have largely seen all its tricks, plots and character relationships before.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The show was created by Courtney Kemp Agboh and has so much going for it--on the surface, anyway--that it's almost criminal that a powerful, attractive cast and high-end production values are hobbled by such a stupefying absence of originality.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Mostly, this is undemanding escapism with all the requisite pay-TV trappings, along the lines of what Cinemax is offering in episodic form.

    Variety Full Review
  • Alan Jones

    If The Sopranos, in all its intricacy, finds layers in its antihero that are relatable even as it reveals how damaged the man is by a life of violence, then Power comes across as nothing more than a warmed-over soap opera only superficially obsessed with Ghost's relationship to guns and drugs.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Erik Adams

    As it stands now, Power spends far more time telling the audience that everything is at stake for Ghost than showing how everything he holds dear is at stake.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Power is a paint-by-numbers effort when Starz could really do itself a favor by putting a masterpiece in the market.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • John Anderson

    Everyone seems to be imitating someone they saw in another gangster movie. It would be funny, if it weren't quite so tedious.
