Critic Reviews for Raising Dion Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (7)

Even with all the overt manipulations, this Netflix drama feels good-intentioned.

Bound to resonate with audiences. That is, if they can get over the bad CGI, poor pacing, and shaky child acting.

The fact that the hero in question is a seven-year-old boy... adds originality to the story. [Full Review in Spanish]

Oct 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Raising Dion enlivens the superhero genre by offering a fresh tone and concept, and it also has some subtle messages that resonate with personal growth and sociopolitical challenges still being faced today.

Haney's Ezperanza is one of the best parts of the entire show. She's quick-witted, loving, and wise beyond her years; Haney's dialogue is some of the strongest in Raising Dion.

Oct 17, 2019 | Full Review…

The small things in Raising Dion that don't stand up as well - CGI quibbles, uneven pacing, generic cinematography - are easily forgiven in light of the fact that the show is one of the few entries in pop culture that asks, how do we raise better men?

Oct 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Raising Dion is beautiful, magical, fun and exciting stuff.

Oct 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Even Michael B. Jordan's role is so insignificant that it feels like a glorified cameo and a way for Netflix to try and salvage some viewers for this show. I would be shocked if Netflix renewed it for a second season.

Oct 17, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

All of the black excellence in 'Raising Dion' exists alongside the bigotry as it does in real life, reminding us that we cannot escape the hate. However, we can still attain Black excellence in the face of it and in spite of it.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

This familiar-feeling tale not only comes from a fresh perspective, the series dodges genre tropes and expectations to deliver a fun supernatural story with edge and purpose.

Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Supervillain violence, bullying, in excellent family drama.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's nothing wrong with wheeling out a tried-and-tested formula when it has a life of its own, and Raising Dion succeeds in maintaining its own personality.

    Totally grows on you -- excited for Season 2!
  • Nov 09, 2019
    The most Awful acting I've ever seen in my entire life! The main role kid's play is just irritating. I just never saw such weak performance and drama. It's just disgusting to watch! Such a waste of time and Netflix's reputation on bringing more shitty products on a screen...

    Binge worthy for sure
  • Nov 07, 2019
    Was not able to get very far without loosing interest. Nice special effects.
  • Nov 05, 2019
    I think is a good show but I also have to say something about the plot ND the way the character Dion was portrayed ND wah I have to say is why he do the dumbest shii on a serious act like wah kid he's age chases squirrel & ask the dumbest things

    Feel-good family series with an excellent display of diversity. The ok cinematography is quickly forgiven once Esparanza makes her grand appearance. P.s. Dion's facial expressions are such a vibe!

    Fantastic! Young African American superhero and black excellence..... Thank you Netflix 🙌🏾
