CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) I’ll rank this show almost equivalent to “Master of None”. And for the same reason, this series is redundant as Aziz Ansari already did it.
2) “Ne Me Quitte Pas” is the Emmy worth episode of this series.
3) Stephen Way as Stevie. The best thing in Hollywood for the disability community.

 
CONS –
1) Nothing new for the audiences of “Master of None” or even “Citizen Khan”.

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) A fast-paced action-packed sci-fi flick with a lasting effect on the audiences.
2) The comparison to Limitless (2011), Akira (1988), and 2001: A Space Odyssey is inevitable. However, this movie got a life of its own.
3) Presence of legends like Morgan Freeman and Choi Min-sik.
4) Astounding CGI – especially towards the end of the movie.

 

CONS –
1) The climax will make you ask the reason for making this movie. The ending is not ambiguous but reduces the entire movie to a science documentary with a Korean mob sub-plot.
