Lucifer Morningstar has decided he's had enough of being the dutiful servant in Hell and decides to spend some time on Earth to better understand humanity. He settles in Los Angeles - the City of Angels.
Uwais plays a young man who washes ashore, an amnesiac with a serious head injury whose past comes back to haunt him shortly after being nursed back to health by a young doctor. Violence ensues. Sweet, sweet violence.
Set ninety-seven years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends one hundred juvenile delinquents back to Earth, in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
It's got a decent enough plot and characters to just sit back and enjoy it for the action/crime/martial arts show that it is. It's not going to win any awards but at the same time it doesn't disappoint for what it is...
That being except "The Soundtrack". What in god's earth were they thinking when they put this together? The fighting scenes which are choreographed well enough are ruined by cheesy music that makes you caught between a state of wanting to take it seriously and have a bit of a chuckle.
Promising serious. Netflix, to save this show and improve it dramatically. Please fire whoever is in charge of placing music in scenes because they're absolute horrible at their job. Thanks
