Haunting Complexity
1 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

While I agree that the start of the series feels a bit slow, the story unfolds into a truly magnificent masterpiece.

The ending is haunting.

This is not a stereotypical story with predictable plots. It is not a big bang, laugh a minute or utterly over manufactured piece of Hollywood rubbish. It is not DC comic dreary and dreadful.

So if you are keen on something a bit unusual and thought provoking then you may be well served sticking through the boring and slower bits until the end, and then make up your own mind.

The acting is superbly portrayed.

There are loads of holes in the story, but overhlook this and don't expect much. Let yourself be surprised. Relax and just enjoy.
