Critic Reviews for The Shield Season 4

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

Close is every bit [Michael Chiklis'] match.

Top Critic

The Shield perfectly embodies the postmodern, post-therapeutic, post-due-process cop show.

Jan 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The strength of The Shield is physicality, finding urgent, visceral illustrations of those effects within a rip-roaring yarn.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…
Top Critic

I'm now convinced that the introduction of Glenn Close as the dignified but ruthless new captain is a brilliant move that only fuels the show's furious momentum.

Oct 25, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the strengths of The Shield is the fine work that comes from the entire cast... One hopes the shake-up at the Barn will afford all these worthy supporting characters some meaty story lines.

Oct 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Glenn Close succeeds brilliantly as Rawling. The Emmy-winning actress makes The Shield, one of television's most potent dramas, even more bracing as it begins its fourth season.

Oct 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The Shield was particularly memorable this year for its boldness, managing again to exceed previous seasons in terms of drama and grit.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The first three seasons of The Shield were unrelenting, but the fourth season, rather than coming out with guns blazing, is more about building tension -- unbearable tension.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Whatever the marquee effect of getting an esteemed movie star to juice up the new season of The Shield, the refined Glenn Close seems exactly the wrong choice to join the shady police detective Vic Mackey and the shambles of his Strike Crew.

Oct 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The fourth season of The Shield pulls the audience back into the gritty underground of the L.A. crime scene with the same grab bag of hopeless characters, sharp writing, and intense drama.

Oct 28, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Here, the "dance" focuses on Vic and Monica's relationship, which never quite resolves... Their scenes together are filled with this simultaneous possibility and impossibility.

Audience Reviews for The Shield: Season 4

  • Jun 26, 2019
    A good enough season over all but it takes a bit of getting into and over all was less intense than the rollercoaster that was season 3
