Critic Reviews for Claws: Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (15)

Claws is bold, wildly entertaining, and impossible to ignore.

August 25, 2017 | Full Review…

Claws is a crime romp that's all the more delightful for being so straightforward.

The Ringer

Rude as it is, Claws is at heart a spangled fantasy, about women building power in a crappy system, sashaying from strip club to strip mall, from tawdry oxycodone mills to the mansions bought with their proceeds.

Niecy Nash gives the performance of her career as Desna.

Top Critic

Claws walks a tightrope throughout. Its outlandish Spring Breakers--esque story, nourished by the heat of its setting, is bolstered by real and committed performances.

This storyline raises the stakes in Claws, but there's plenty of drama and even more heart among the women of Nail Artisans of Manatee County.
