Because simultaneous effects are resolved in the order of the active player's choosing, runners can host agendas on Film Critic before any "on access" or "when stolen" effects trigger. Film Critic completely disables NAPD Contract, TGTBT, Explode-a-palooza, Fetal AI, The Future Perfect, Haarpsichord Studios, Argus Security: Protection Guaranteed, and Jinteki: Personal Evolution. Because adding the hosted agenda does not count as stealing an agenda, it also gives a buff to New Angeles City Hall - making it nearly permanent - and throws a wrench into any Midseason Replacements decks.
A few notable cards synergize poorly with Film Critic - Leela Patel: Trained Pragmatist will only be able to bounce cards when the Corp scores agendas, Kraken and Human First won't fire, and Corp currents will never be wiped from the board.
Film Critic represents one of the most significant forced meta shifts in the game, on par with Plascrete Carapace and Clot. Easily splashable into any runner deck, the Critic is a total shutdown of the common Butchershop deck archetype, with Thousand Cuts Jinteki taking a hit as well.
