Best movie of this year hands down!
Don't listen to the negative reviews
There's no way I can possibly love it entirely but I just think its ridiculously bad, but enjoyable at the same time.
I was hoping for much more from this show. It started nicely, unfortunately through the show, acting got annoyingly unbearable (specially Martha), characters got flat, music went south.... And all the Hollywood clichés destroyed the show..... Specially the Disney style happy ending........
Of course Tak isn't a billionaire his patron Lauren is. I've only seen 2 episodes but I'm guessing Ortega becomes at least a partial ally. Besides doesn't Batman have some friction with the authorities? And Tak and Ortega seem to be sharing the Batman back story. I'm not a comic fanboy but I'm not an idiot. Cyberpunk my ass. Is the black guy going to be Robin? E3 is just beginning. The cinematography is good but so far the action scenes are average. Oh wait he's getting deadly utility belt gadgets. None of the critical reviews I scanned mentioned the Batman copy. But the too perfect, too pat, too cool, too much explanation was mentioned. So will it be a Maltese Falcon/Chinatown lie fest or revive Monk to add some schtick? Oh wait Monk wouldn't be cyberpunk. Question for comic fanboys. Back in the day, didn't superheroes have regular people problems? How can people relate or care about this stuff? I forgot this is junkie nation, of course supercool is the new normal
I think this show is very poignant to our times. It does start out very confusingly but hang in there the twists and confusions eventually work themselves out. The writers so far have done an excellent job of showing how if the rich just keep getting richer and think of everyone else as disposable things can really go way, way over board and totally out of control. The upperclassmen have gone so far as to live in the clouds above everyone.
I really hope this show gets renewed. Next year though writers let's not have quite so much confusion because you're gonna loose viewers that are now hooked if you do that again. Other shows have made that mistake and quickly gone down the drain. The writing was better in the second half of the season. Hope you guys pick up right where you left off.
First two episodes are really impressive. You are getting ever more convinced the real cinematic experience moved to the tv shows. It looks solid, expensive and conceptual to some extent. This is however beginning to fade away with each following episode. You never reach the point you become sympathetic with any of the characters and their motives. They look pointless and predictable. The plot twists are predictable and it feels like they are strictly following a manual or a textbook without actually changing the examples. I am not familiar with the source but it seems it is not a very good one. Dialogues are rushing but they lack any real philosophy. Since the show is pretty gory and sexually explicit it is obviously not aimed at kids but it has no depth for adults. The "deus ex machina" touch is overused and it makes the whole tv show naive and boring. And the final blow comes with the forced samurai saga in the last few episodes. All in all a decent show but not a great one.
