Critics Aren’t Holding Back On Jennifer Lopez’s Netflix Movie Atlas

It’s not quite fair to say that Jennifer Lopez is a bad actress. In fact, the superstar has starred in tons of amazing movies (albeit alongside her fair share of duds), with many of her fans pointing out her versatility. Lopez has done rom-coms, dramas, biopics, thrillers — you name it. Which is why it’s so disappointing that “Atlas” is another misfire. Jennifer Lopez stars as Atlas, a data analyst who goes on a mission to capture an out-of-control robot, with Simu Liu and Sterling K. Brown rounding out the supporting cast. Most critics are mixed on “Atlas,” praising some of its ideas and themes, but mainly pointing out how it doesn’t amount to much. 

IndieWire critic Kate Erbland thinks “Atlas” is disposable entertainment with not much to say. “Mostly, it all looks like a video game cut scene, which isn’t just a ding on its overall aesthetics (cheap), but its general narrative thrust (weak, silly). The closer you pay attention to those elements, the harder they are to ignore, and the less even vaguely entertaining this all is,” Erbland wrote. 

Audiences aren’t fans of Netflix’s “Atlas” either. “JLo was horrible as expected, but the robot AI was fun. This should be a video game, but I guess Netflix decided to make it a mildly entertaining action movie,” wrote user Parzi Pan in a two-star review on Letterboxd. 

Based on how mediocre “Atlas” seems to be, audiences are far better off checking out Lopez’s rom-com that’s currently blowing up the charts on Netflix.
