‘The Boys’ Season 4 – Review

Published on

CinemaBlind’s Review – 90%

The Boys are finally back and they are even more wild and bloody with a touch of animal mayhem. The much-awaited Season 4 of the popular Prime Video superhero series The Boys will be released the day after tomorrow on the streaming service but before that, we are here to review the upcoming season, and after watching all the episodes I can confidently say that this might be the best season of The Boys yet.

Season 4 begins with The Boys struggling to figure out the Victoria Newman problem as she is about to become the Vice President of America and with Butcher only having months to live, he is trying to get Ryan back from Homelander. M.M. is now in charge of The Boys and they have a big problem ahead of them as the public is divided between Homelander supporters and Starlight supporters. Into this chaos, Eric Kripke, the creator of the series introduces the supe-killing virus from the spin-off series Gen V alongside some characters from the series.

First things first there is no shortage of blood and gore in The Boys universe and in that aspect Season 4 certainly doesn’t disappoint as there are many sequences in which you might have to look away from the screen because of the sheer craziness that’s going on your screen. But if you are a fan of the series they are definitely entertaining and innovative to look at, and I think Kripke is getting good at upping the ante every season with the violence and gore he puts on our screen.

The first half of Season 4 felt a little slow to me as the main plot of the season was introduced halfway into the season. But it did give us a memorable character episode that will keep you hooked, and where the first half felt a little slow the second half of the season definitely more than made up for any problems I might have had. While, you will feel some repetitiveness in this season like Season 3 and 2, in my opinion, the creators have done a fine job of avoiding that as much as possible.

The performances of every cast member are phenomenal as always including Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Chace Crawford, Laz Alonso, Jessie T. Usher, and Claudia Doumit. I think Season 4 underutilized Frenchie (Tomer Capone) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) a bit, but that happens every season. The newcomers to The Boys universe are Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Valorie Curry, and Susan Heyward, who have done a wonderful job at making their characters belong in this messed up universe.

So, in the end, The Boys Season 4 made me even more excited for its next and recently confirmed final season (according to Variety) which Prime Video has already renewed, and while there are some hurdles this season has to cross in its first half it comes out looking like the best season of The Boys yet to me at least.
