Some fanatics say the series is an unique Superman origins story, tackling the politics of his homeland long before the Man of Steel was even born. Screenrant's Kevin Yeoman writes:

To its credit, Krypton wants to be more than either a superhero series or a mere Superman prequel. It proves as much by wisely eschewing superpowers for a more ambitious drama about legacy, class dynamics, and the allure of power. It’s not always successful and it’s not nearly as smart as it thinks it is, but Krypton earns plenty of points for its lofty ambitions and its ability to retool the tired superhero prequel concept into something that can stand on its own.

But many other critics argue the series falls flat. RogerEbert.com's Nick Allen writes:

The biggest problem with this series is its lack of distinct aesthetic. For one, it’s the kind of show that leans on British accents to be taken more seriously, with performances that are roundly serviceable for characters that too slowly become complicated. And there are some noteworthy dashes of imagnation in the sets and the costumes, but it’s the staid directing where the action largely involves characters standing on a set, having an important conversation, and moving on; it creates a dull rhythm when the story is trying to heat up. And then, one of my biggest gripes with sci-fi storytelling, there’s the boring reliance on blasters, guns, whatever you want to call them: they simplify the drama of a moment when someone important is killed, and make the story’s supposedly intense acts of violence ho-hum.
