We have a series that fails on all accounts in regard to the original, shouldn't have been named The Bridge and shouldn't have been (falsely) based on the awesomly successful Swedish-Danish version and production.
- It lacks the cold, rightly done, grimmy, menacing and dark atmosphere and vibe of the original
- It lacks the brilliant diamond-like play and portrayal of the original female lead investigator that won't be mimicked or surpassed for a long long time. With all respect, Diane Kruger doesn't pull off an epsilone of that.
- It lacks the very good cast and acting of the original
- It has an awful and bizarre opening sequence soundtrack, not being of interest and not contributing to the show
- It has a messed up script and story with lots of fillers, blood and (unsuccessful) violence depicting the American-Mexican mishmash
- To its credit: It has some good acting, mainly by Demián Bichir (Marco Ruiz) and Eric Lange (Kenneth Hastings)
- To its credit: It has some entertaining values letting it flow mindlessly before your eyes, episode by episode, until its jumbled ending
- To its credit: Very good for practising the Spanish language and idioms
To wrap it up in one sentence, a forgettable series with latin vibes and culture, best put back on the shelves and have a restart of the nostalgic Bron/Broen.
