Good , But It Is Overrated By Some
I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
if their story seems completely bonkers, almost like a feverish work of fiction, you ain't heard nothing yet.
Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
Really enjoyed this pilot and have been a bit surprised at the lack of news about this programs future. Also slightly annoyed that it's not available anymore
I absolutely loved this episode & the story lines. I'm a great fan of Sci-Fi and,sadly,there are no great,not even good,shows in this genre at present. I'd think with the millions of Sci-Fi fans,more shows would be on or in production. This was one with great story,good, solid actors and has/had much promise.Other than Westworld (which I really don't consider "Sci-Fi"),there aren't any others out and Westworld's popularly should be an example of people wanting something less vanilla. I think had Amazon shot a full season instead of just a pilot,they would have realized just how many people are drawn to & love these type shows. Out of the box is risky,but I'd think it would have a better pay off than just another random vanilla series we're now overwhelmed with. Hopefully, it's not buried.
Absolutely loved this pilot. Please pick this up. Best new show I have watched in a while. Richard Madden was a well found gem in the entertainment industry. From Game of Thrones to Medici. I will follow his work. This has an awesome story line that is easy to get involved in. I want more. I want to know what happens next.
Perhaps one of the most underwhelming pilots I have ever seen. Ridiculously shoddy writing meets horridly incompetent and inexperienced direction in this season premier for Amazon Video. I mean, most of the characters are incredibly stock and stereotypical, whose stockness and stereotypicalness are in fact only outdone by the paper thing plot which draws on a plethora of other, superior material. It's just very unengaging, not compelling in the least, and failed to interest on anything more than a superficial level, if even that. The acting is passable but ill fitted to the clichéd and uncreative story which isn't helped by the most clichéd and uncreative visuals. Every scene past is peppered with anti-fun tropes and a poor script makes even the scenes most essential to the plot hard to watch. With that said, the lead is not unlikable and I thought his religion could be something new and fresh, although judging by this first episodes quality I highly doubt it.
