VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) It’s a one-woman show of Jodie Comer as Villanelle, the multilingual French-loving, cold-blooded psychopath assassin with a strong fashion sense. An evil James Bond.
2) Exceptional soundtrack with songs like Carnival and Mama by Unloved and Contact by Brigitte Bardot.

 

CONS –
1) Sandra Oh’s (as Eve Polastri) expressionless face is one of the biggest let down of the series. In a game of spies, she’s merely a pawn in the grand scheme of things.
2) The series is based on Villanelle novel series. She remains the central character in the entire series. Can’t understand why Eve is made the title character.

 
QUOTE –
Eve: Who do you work for? Why are you killing these people?
Villanelle: Do you not know? Do you know who you work for?
Eve: Yes.
Villanelle: Really?
Eve: Yes.
Villanelle: Really? I think if you went high enough, you’d probably find we work for the same people.
