Abigail Spencer excels in the revenge drama that is all style over substance, but with style to burn, says Alex McLevy. "Say what you will about Reprisal’s mistakes—and there are more than a few of them in Hulu’s latest series—it’s undeniable that everyone involved in this project looks like they’re having the absolute time of their lives," says McLevy. "From the opening moments that reveal the origin story of this femme fatale revenge thriller, there’s a heightened state of reality that infuses everything with a melodramatic tenor, leading to actors tending to cut loose in ways that aren’t necessarily flashy, but certainly bold. Not everyone chews the scenery, but enough of it gets gnawed on to make you wonder if there were some unofficial games of one-upmanship going on behind the scenes. The best way to describe Reprisal might be 'rockabilly neo-noir thriller,' if the creative team was also headed by some mutant combination of Quentin Tarantino and John Waters, albeit with a short attention span problem."
