It's a mildly interesting fantasy, but the story has too many holes to feel really compelling.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 1


Super Reviewer

Mr. Robot is not your ordinary summer thriller, thanks to it's intriguing premise, a profoundly complexive and morally questionable lead - with a breath-taking performance by Rami Malek - cohersive storytelling, merciless criticism upon modern society, and just the right amount of paranoia, inevitably becoming one of television's must-see content.

Daring and provocative, Mr. Robot is a stylistic techno thriller from USA. Season 1 follows a computer engineer named Elliot Alderson who's approached by a group of vigilante hackers called "fsociety" to help them bring down the banking conglomerate Evil Corp. in order to wipeout the public debt. However, Elliot is a psychologically disturbed young man who struggles to connect with other people and discern between fantasy and reality; which places fsociety's project in jeopardy. Narrated by Elliot, the show breaks the third wall in a rather interesting way; having him talk to the audience is if they're a voice in his head. Also, the series features a fairly strong cast , which includes Rami Malek, Carly Chaikin and Christian Slater; who all give extraordinary performances. Additionally, the directing is very Kurbrickian; setting an atmospheric tone that's sinister and foreboding. The writing is quite impressive as well; telling a complex story with a lot of subplot (though they don't always work out). Full of intrigue, Season 1 of Mr. Robot is incredibly intense and extremely engaging.
