Critic Reviews for Reef Break Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The pilot's main crime story is unremarkable until it becomes ridiculous.

Top Critic

Generic crime show combines crime and summery surf vibes.

Jul 17, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The banter isn't funny or all that interesting, the chases are boring, and the mysteries that Cat is trying to solve are pretty obvious...

A mindlessly breezy crime drama that would have been a decent fit on USA back in its "blue sky" days.

Jun 20, 2019 | Full Review…

ABC's "Reef Break" is everything that CBS' "Hawaii Five-0" should be - breezy, bright, a wee bit sassy, a whole lot silly, the ideal summer show to catch as a nightcap before bed.

The only thing deep about Reef Break is its silliness. Yet splashing in the shallows can, for those in the right temperament and in need of brain-off summer fare, have its pleasures too.

    Love it! Love poppy!

    Yeah, it feels like the producers seen Hawaii Five-O and said they could do it better. The show has a weak storyline that's uninteresting and difficult to follow. The acting is bad/uninteresting. The pilot's use technical resources like radios and cellphones is laughable.

    Ok but wraps up each episode too easily. Montgomery's character is too overconfident and not vulnerable. Makes bad guys and pollook incompetent.

    I love it, the show was kinda cheesy the first couple of episodes, but got better with every episode.

    Definitely one of my favorites for this summer's fare. The only drawback for me is having to suspend the belief that there is a fictional US protectorate that not only has one lone FBI agent, but also an oil baron, and if the FBI agent was undercover and married Cat, I have to believe IN IRL, if still on active duty he'd be reassigned to another office. But suspending that belief is not a deal breaker. I enjoy the grey area in which our intrepid anti-hero works in, and the fact that everyone knows they can't really trust her but need to all the same is intriguing.

    This show is sexy, sassy & FUN! The location is perfection. I really like the characters... I just can't get enough of this wonderful summer adventure escape! 😎

    It's fun, action filled with summer vibes! Poppy Montgomery is great as always! I'm enjoying it so far!
  • Jul 19, 2019
    I like this show. I really like poppy as an actress and i think she does a great job!
  • Jul 18, 2019
    It's just boring. The crimes do nothing to grab your attention, and the acting and writing remind me of a school play. Snooze fest.

    I'm sorry - we loved Poppy in pastry shows- but at 47, she really can't pull off a sexy surfer character that jumps in bed after two paragraphs with a cop at a bar..... Sorry Poppy- get a roll that more suits your age!
