On February 2, Netflix realised their adaptation of the novel Altered Carbon. It’s a science fiction book written by the English author Richard K.Morgan.
I did the same experience as « The End of the F***ing world » and pressed the « Play » button.
Dam you Netflix…. 8 hours later it was done ! ?
350 years in the future, people’s consciousness is loaded in « stacks ». It’s like a hard drive attached to the back of a person’s neck. #TheMatrix. All physical bodies are turned into « sleeves ». So if your sleeve dies and you stack in undamaged, you just have to change your body (Brilliant !)
The story follows Takeshi Kovacs on a mission; solve the murder of the wealthiest man in the world.
Action, sex, boobs and investigation are the essence of this adaptation and it’s marvellously well done !
I was afraid to watch a classic investigation TV-Show like Lucifer or Arrow where all episodes follow the same guide line, beat one villain and proceed on the story. It’s not the case ?? not that I don’t like this kind of story, of course, but there is too many (Thank you DC & Marvel).
The cast is incredible and the tension is always present. It keeps you really focused.
You guessed it, I highly recommend it.
