What Are the Critics Saying About Japan Sinks: 2020?
Japan Sinks: 2020 has an official critics rating of 72% and an average audience score of 60% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Stephen McCarty from South China Morning Post writes, “This challenging 10-part story, which can be emotionally wrenching, is certain to find global favour, approaching the subject of survival from personal and universal angles simultaneously.”
Observer’s Christopher L. Inoa says, “There is enough story here to fill a 22- or even 18-episode series, but because it is limited to ten, many storylines feel underdeveloped, even those concerning the main characters. As a result, Japan Sinks feels rushed and unearned.”
