Weary to check it out because I liked the movie so much, but it was worth the watch.

Exciting show and Ellen Barkin is phenomenal in this role, I have always gotten an Angie Dickinson vibe from her which i love. The detectives are more annoying, something that differs from the movie. I found myself rooting for the detective in the movie but the family in the tv show, but that pretty much has to happen if they want to keep going with this show.

Entertaining series

I'm really enjoying the horrible family life portrayed in Animal Kingdom. The cast does a great job of presenting a corrupt group of people yet constantly has me hoping they won't be caught as you see the humanity in each of them at times. Maybe the exception being the Mother, portrayed excellently by Ellen Barkin. I really don't see any redeeming qualities in her, she is a lying manipulator who uses her children against each other to control them and get what she wants. She has no qualms about having people killed, even her son's wife, and uses another very disturbed son to accomplish this.

Worth watching
Verified purchase
This was an interesting, engrossing show that I ended up binge-watching (both seasons!) There's some great acting here, especially from Pope and Smurf (yes, Ellen Barkin plays a character named Smurf). All of the characters are both unlikable (they are criminals, after all) but also likable or even admirable (though of course you still want to see them get taken down eventually). I thought Season 1 was a bit better than 2 but they are both still worth watching. (And, for those that may be interested, there are some hot guys on this show!)

I am interested to see where all the various plot threads end up, and I'm hoping for a Season 3!

Season Two
Verified purchase
I got hooked with season one then innocently started watching season two. The next day I saw that I had been charged for the season two episodes. Really? Seems a little bait and switch to me. But as far as the show goes, it's great. Never a dull moment. Ellen Barkin is phenomenal in her role, controlling her grown thug sons like children. This season they aren't taking it, at least that's the plan and the only plan they can all agree on. It should be interesting to see who wins out. I'm voting for mommy dearest.

i hate that i like it, but Ellen Barkin is amazing. High end crime, raunchy wretchedness and eye-candy guys and gals on the California coastline. it's 'crime family entertainment tv ' without any attachment to the characters. I let it play while I solder jewelry and I look up from time to time when Ellen Barkin is on screen.

Awesome tv series and nothing like it! I have never seen a show like this on American TV. Where are these many similarities the commenter speaks about?I have seen the Australian movie, which the series is based on, and this is the first time I've seen a TV series I like more than the original film.I cannot determine which has more violence because they are both violent. I don't agree that the amount of sex and violence in a TV series should even be allowed, but welcome to parental guidance. The blood and violence is over the top in both and hard to watch. I happen to like the characters in the TV series much more because they are much better looking and there is more character development. The mother Matriarch in the film seems creepier and more outrageous sexually and intimately, because she looks more like their grandmother. Ellen Barkin is more relatable especially to younger people because of her clothes and she's much more attractive. She seems to be more believable as the mastermind and as cunning and devious sociopath than the ditzy head of the household movie version.
