There’s no accounting for taste. While some movies and TV shows may win critical acclaim, audiences can take a very different view. A recent analysis has looked into the top 10 most overrated Netflix original productions, based on the difference in opinion between critics and viewers.

Netflix, known for its original productions as much as its library of acquired content, is the subject of this intriguing analysis. A recent study by Amazon Slots looked at the perception gaps between professional critics and viewers by analyzing Metacritic data for Netflix originals.


The “Enola Holmes” movie, starring Millie Bobby Brown, was deemed the platform’s most overrated original production, showing a 40-point gap between the score given by critics (68/100) and that given by users (28/100). Despite its captivating plot revolving around the sister of the famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, the film didn’t seem to win over the general public as much as the industry experts.


In second place, “The Queen’s Gambit,” starring Anya Taylor-Joy, has a 36-point difference. The series, which captured interest with its story of a young chess prodigy battling her addictions, received rave reviews (79/100) but didn’t appeal as much to viewers (43/100).

“The Witcher: Blood Origin,” the prequel to “The Witcher,” came third with a 33-point gap. The series received an average score of 45/100 from critics and a disappointing 12/100 from viewers.

Other titles in the top 10 include “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” starring Daniel Craig, “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” with Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis, the “Lady Dynamite” series, “Big Mouth,” the Oscar-winning film “Marriage Story,” George Clooney’s “The Midnight Sky,” “Death Note,” “The Old Guard,” the horror film “Fear Street Part One: 1994” and “Sweet Tooth.”

“Despite their best efforts to remain fair and impartial, critics can still be inadvertently swept up in the prevailing excitement of a new release and offer a slightly more generous review than might be merited. Users, many of whom view the release at a later date, are not necessarily subjected to the same external pressures, and may find they can offer a more objective review of each title,” said a spokesperson for Amazon Slots.
