Dark, tense, and thought-provoking
29 September 2019 | by krs_is_coolSee all my reviews

So far, this series promises to offer an insight into the War that often gets ignored. It's dealing with historical issues which are more relevant now then they have ever been; race; sexualities; democracy and freedom; representation; corruption. These are all modern issues that in War dramas are often overlooked for grand fight sequences. So far, the fighting has been tense- I felt the immediacy of the situation as we already know the outcome, it makes the actions of certain character annoying frustrating which only seems to have engaged me more. Helen Hunt and Sean Bean were obviously very good. Believable. Shout out to the relatively unknown new actors particularly the young Polish lad. Left me wanting more, even though I know it's gunna get a lot worse before it gets better (worse for the character). If you liked Chernobyl, I'd recommend this.
