Poor script
19 April 2019 | by harryplinkett14See all my reviews

Sometimes when films are made, one deliberately films some extra footage so that there is enough material for a TV series as well. Unfortunately, in this case they had a script for a 12 episode long TV series, which they proceeded to butcher in order to make a film out of it. That did not work out. From beginning to end, one feels that scenes don't fit well together, because numerous scenes have been cut out of the original script. The film comes across as an afterthought, an exercise in reducing ten hours of material to one fifth of that length.

The TV series is much better, and I would advise everyone to skip the film and watch the series.
