Felix Böhme wrote on : “ The Last Ship will undoubtedly be able to generate quite a few viewers with its very simple entertainment value. However, they shouldn't expect too many sensible and original ideas in the pilot episode of the TNT action drama. Rather, you can let yourself be showered by the vague story with a flat script. However, you are sometimes put to the test, because many scenes in the opening episode of The Last Ship are so unsatisfactory that they even lose a charming trash factor. "

Looking back on the first season, Axel Schmitt ( wrote: “ The Last Ship is not innovative, it does not tell a nested story and does not portray complex characters. The series likes to do without it - not because it can't, but because it doesn't have this claim. She wants to entertain. And she succeeds. "

Christian Buß wrote on : “Paranoia meets patriotism: In the end-of-time series The Last Ship by Transformers director Michael Bay, a warship cruises through a contaminated world and maintains US values. Finally the world police again - the American right can celebrate. "


The US Navy ship USS Halsey in 2008
