Atlas lands one of J-Lo's lowest-ever RT ratingsNetflix

Atlas has debuted as one of Jennifer Lopez's lowest-rated movies on Rotten Tomatoes.

The new Netflix sci-fi focuses on the actor's titular character, a brilliant but misanthropic data analyst who joins a mission to capture a renegade robot with whom she shares a mysterious past.

However, it seems Atlas hasn't been impressing critics, earning only 8% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of writing) – only marginally ahead of her infamously panned 2003 movie Gigli (which sits at 6%).

Among criticisms, many reviews have pointed towards Atlas' "predictable" and "embarrassing" plot.

Here's what critics have been saying:

Digital Spy

"Netflix's new epic Atlas is like putting together every cliché in the sci-fi book (including Hollywood's obsession with apocalyptic AI) without a clue of how to mash them into something worth viewers' time."


"Atlas is far from the 'Justice for AI!' disaster its premise implies, and while it’s not the next groundbreaking sci-fi epic, it earns points for building an entertaining, adequately executed movie around a hot-button topic."

"Atlas is predictable, overlong and bland, the kind of experience it’s hard to get excited about when the star player seems to be perfunctorily running the bases."


"Hidden somewhere beneath all the generic dialogue, embarrassing plot, mediocre action and oddly ineffective performances, there’s a good idea in Brad Peyton’s Atlas. It’s a shame the filmmakers never found it."

"With some solid combat mechanics, Atlas might have been a lot of fun to play. As a movie it’s simply watchable without ever achieving – or seemingly even really trying to achieve – more than that."


"Atlas struggles with a weak script and underutilized performances, leaving it an entertaining yet ultimately unfulfilling experience."

Atlas is now available to watch on Netflix.
