Resident Evil Infinite Darkness new Netflix series review
Today is Saturday, a happy day for many and almost the end of the week. What better time than this to bring content different from what we normally contribute. For it, Today I bring you some brief, spoiler-free impressions of the new Netflix series Resident Evil Infinite Darkness. If this isn’t a direct adaptation of a numbered game in the series, it’s a good point to see how the Capcom franchise has adapted to the cinematic format (again).
As many of you know, Resident Evil has had many approaches to the world of cinema and series
If we focus on the narrative part, we find a series of only four episodes with an average duration of 25 minutes. In this austere space, Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield return to action after the events of Resident Evil 4.
This leads Leon to investigate an epidemic in the White House itself, while Claire searches for the truth when she sees the drawings of a boy in the shelter of war. In this situation, the truth is that the total protagonist is Leon, as Claire has few scenes and hardly contributes anything to the plot. The duality of the characters was really wasted a lot, monopolizing one of them. However, since we only have 2 hours of approximate feature length in total, the story is a bit steep. Likewise, the characters who participate in it, in addition to the protagonists, have very little evolution and everything comes down to a final crushing episode that mixes action, secrets revealed and a possible Cliff Hanger facing a sequel.
With all that, i hope we will be at the start of something big, as this was the first season of castlevania (very poor in my opinion), which has improved with each new collection of episodes released. Right now, Resident Evil Infinite Darkness is a weird, steep sip of what could be an interesting series. I personally hope that the idea will be better worked on in the next episodes. For all this you can enjoy the series in many languages; including Spanish, Japanese and English, among others. Have a good Saturday.
