"***** Well-directed shoot-outs, car chases, punch-ups, sniper attacks and on-foot pursuits… Alongside the intrigue, humour, action and enjoyable characters are big questions, what’s the value of a life? How about eight billion lives? What might make you sacrifice one for the other? In short, this ambitious Sky thriller is the complete blockbuster package" The Den of Geek

"**** Gripping, fun and stylish" The Guardian

"**** The Lazarus Project is exactly the kind of head-spinning, heart pounding TV that you’ll be left wanting to revisit time and again" Empire

"**** Visually, the series is a treat – fast-paced car chases, a clash in rural Eastern Europe surrounded by bleak emptiness, and inventive montage sequences are as much a part of the storytelling as the dialogue...Regardless of how it all wraps up, The Lazarus Project is already one of the most inventive time-travel shows I’ve seen in years. If the first episode doesn’t seem like quite your thing, push on – like Giri/Haji, this show’s something of a wolf in sheep’s clothing."
