Critic Reviews for Peaky Blinders Season 3

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

A highly efficient piece of entertainment, full of inventive storytelling and heroically unafraid to go over the top when necessary - which is apparently quite often.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

This terrific series has many strengths, not least the music, but one standout is the unflinching way in which it contrasts the worlds of power and money with the grubby, ripped fingernails of appalling violence necessary to achieve them.

Jan 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Peaky Blinders is an easy series to admire, as it's literate, great looking and great sounding (the Nick Cave soundtrack is sublime) yet I cannot like it, let alone love it.

Aug 30, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

One thing Peaky Blinders does well is to keep several pots simmering... season 3 has done a remarkable job getting all those posts arranged and steaming away, while still giving the series and its characters a welcome sense of progression.

May 31, 2016 | Full Review…

It is sheer TV poetry in motion, and after you binge the six new episodes you'll be begging for more.

May 25, 2016 | Full Review…

This is a drama at that imperious stage where it's hard to go wrong -- confident in its storytelling, secure in its character development and trusting the audience to join them.

Top Critic

With its billowing smokestacks, moody lighting and charred scenery, Peaky Blinders puts every penny it has to good use, and more than stands up when watched back to back with a Game of Thrones or a Mad Men.

    best Tv Show ever x3
  • 6d ago
    The direction/cinematography in Season 3 is perfection. The acting is somehow even better this time round, and even if the plot gets a bit convoluted, it all pays off in the finale.

    I love the story line. The actors/actresses are amazing! I hope they keep it going. Im ready for another season. Definite must see!! 100%
  • Sep 06, 2019
    Amazing amazing amazing. Cillian Murphy is a national treasure and is what makes me proud to be Irish.
  • Aug 30, 2019
    Cillian murphy in the best he has been and Tom hardy is absolutely amazing as alfie Solomons
  • Jul 08, 2019
    an upsetting shocking turn of events like you wont believe this show has been perfectly paced up to this point and does not slow down here
  • Jan 09, 2019
    Once again the stakes are upped in the Shelby world. The big wedding finally occurs and the family gets themselves into most danger they've ever faced, against a priest no less. The show is still going strong.
  • Oct 10, 2018
    A much better season as the characters gets more and more complex. The finale was a jaw dropper.
  • Sep 04, 2018
    The expansion of the Peaky Blinders saga (and empire) is as compelling and fascinating as ever, although the Russian conspiracy and jewelry heist is complex and difficult to follow.
  • Jan 26, 2018
    Lacks an interesting antagonist
