It’s a pretty good movie. I like this guys reviews. His channel is hilarious. But i think he is reaching a little far on this one. There are some
things to point out in this flick, but I disagree with almost all of his points.
Netflix is definitely making a lot of movies and series that cater to some leftist views, but in my opinion, the world could use more bad ass female
characters to look up to. I think they miss the mark sometimes with the writing and casting though. I did notice that The black guy that worked at the
supermarket acted out of character when he sacrificed himself that way. That was just stupid, and i think he would have found a better way. Sacrifices
are a noble act, but senseless sacrifice is just stupid and doesn’t give the viewer the same feeling.
I liked john Malcovich’s character too. They def make him out as a trump supporter, even throwing in a “make the apocalypse great again”joke. To
the outward and obvious dismay of the two black guys, who are squarely framed in the next shot, as if this is a racist jab at them.
I thought Sandra’s character was believable. You’re not really supposed to sympathize with her fully, even though she’s making good decisions,
it is portrayed that her motivation for making them is her guilty conscience. I think that is a common motivator for a lot of people, and that it is
rarely pointed out. It’s not really the same as an anti-hero.
Other shows from netflix, like Super girl for example, are just bad all around. Brie larson, although beautiful and charming, plays this character
flat. The writing is terrible. The dialogue is worse. And her performance is like she is making fun of herself. Not to mention the obvious
#waytoofarleft tropes sprinkled all through it.
