New Netflix drama that viewers are binge-watching has shockingly low Rotten Tomatoes score

While many are binge-watching this drama on Netflix, its Rotten Tomatoes score is not the best.

There is no questioning that film and TV shows can divide opinion, but perhaps nothing shows this more than this recent Netflix release.

The drama series was released on the popular streaming platform in the US last week - and it seems like viewers can't get enough of it.

An official Netflix synopsis for All the Light We Cannot See reads: "Directed by Levy and written by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders), the series follows Marie-Laure (Aria Mia Loberti), a blind French girl, and her father, Daniel LeBlanc (Mark Ruffalo), as they flee German-occupied Paris while guarding a legendary diamond that they must keep from falling into the hands of the Nazis."

Following the release on Netflix a week ago, many viewers have flocked to social media sites and forums to sings it praises.

In fact, some Netflix subscribers have admitted to binge-watching All the Light We Cannot See - which is certainly no mean feat.

Viewers have been binge-watching the drama.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, one viewer penned: "Figured I'd try an episode of that All The Light We Cannot See this evening.

"Ended up watching the whole series in a oner (think the youths call it a binge?) 10/10 show. No notes. Phenomenal."

A second added: "Just binge watched All the Light We Cannot See and running on 2 hours of sleep."

While a third remarked: "All the light we cannot see series on Netflix, I recommend just binge watched all of it today."

So, from these reviews, you'd expect similar from industry critics right?

Well, that is certainly not the case despite All the Light We Cannot See having a respectable 68 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

As for the score compiled by reviews from industry critics, well that has a shockingly low score of just 25 percent.

So, what do these film reviewers think?

The Netflix drama has a shockingly low Rotten Tomatoes score.

First of all, Nick Hilton from The Independent said: "This is Netflix at its most awards baiting.

"Which is why it is symptomatic too of the decline in quality of the service’s output, because All the Light We Cannot See is a dud."

While Variety's Alison Herman wrote: "Knight and Levy aim for an uplifting, inspirational tale of connection that transcends division, distance and prejudice, but instead deliver a flat, jumbled story that lacks the desired effect."

And Lucy Mangan from The Guardian penned: "All nuance is lost, all thought has been excised and it feels both drearily slow and stupidly rushed."

All the Light We Cannot See is streaming on Netflix now.
