We Live Entertainment
Too often, the series becomes rote in its investigative imagery. The visual resemblance to other Netflix crime documentaries remains a turnoff.

Like so many of Netflix's murder docs, there is a grim thrill to it all and it does hook you in, but it's ultimately hollow.

San Francisco Chronicle
An occasionally interesting story, full of chilling possibility. But it also misses the dark forest for the trees.

New Yorker
The series' overly familiar and impersonal form dominates, overwhelms, even obscures its ample, fascinating substance.
May 07, 2021
Unfortunately, the fact that these are all just theories means that The Sons of Sam feels, by the end of its four-hour running time, extravagantly unnecessary.

Common Sense Media
This sensationalized true crime series delves unconvincingly into the flimsy argument that multiple people were responsible for the 1977 New York City killing spree.

Terry's descent down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories around David Berkowitz fuels Sons of Sam but it's handled in such a tabloid, sensational way with the kind of logic that makes real journalists furious.
