Review of Into the Badlands

Mondays, 10:00 PM ET on AMC

60 minutes

Into the Badlands is a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale Journey to the West. In a land controlled by feudal barons, Into the Badlands tells the story of a great warrior and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

When AMC announces a new show, given their track record, it is either going to be excellent or good. I can't say that I watched everything on AMC, but I've never heard of any horribly bad shows on AMC in several year. All that being said, this show falls into their "good" pile, not their "excellent" pile. The acting is decent, no one really stands out as amazing, the plot is interesting but not so interesting that you can't wait to see what happens next week. This is probably AMC's weakest link in the past 7 or so years. Regardless, it is good enough to recommend, I had just hoped for better.
