There was a scene in the first episode of Netflix's The Witcher, where Rialt's Geralt raised his palms and pulled his fingers together. "Magic doesn't work for me," the woman performing the gesture responded.
If you've played games or read Andrzej Sapkowski's novels, then of course you know that this should be Axii, a version of Geralt's Jedi thinking skills. If not, then unfortunately. In Star Wars, these thinking skills are never clearly stated before you actually do them, but you do see them before your thinking skills fail-this is how you understand the rules of the universe. Wizards don't care about establishing rules at all.
There are other examples in this series where you jumped into concepts but didn't flesh them out properly, throwing away terms like the "law of surprise" without studying what happened. If you don't like fantasy, fictional words are fired at you like a Gatling machine powered exclusively by stupid nouns, then you might be struggling here.
Still a stranger, too many topics. It's load. However, it still misses such an important background. The show doesn't stop reminding you that the wizard obviously doesn't feel it, but it wants you to solve some of the more complex knowledge yourself. Good for people like me who have liked and played games. This will be great for those who read and love these books. For anyone unfamiliar with the world, I fear it will be alienated.
You can immediately see that Henry Cavill's Geralt is inspired by The Witcher 3. He grunted his posture, like a Batman, and spoke after smoking 20 packs of cigarettes. He is basically anthropomorphic of that famous guard group, and Dr. Manhattan stared at the universe, s aying he hated everyone's shit.
In the first episode, we can see why he prefers to stay away from cities and towns and away from human conflict. It's played in much the same way as a video game, and both parties hope to use Geralt to advance their schedules. Gerat murmured "fuck" and then murdered everyone with his sword show violently, all of which got people's attention.
He wielded an arrow in the air with a sword, stabbed a man with a lot of force, slipped the top of his skull, caused a decapitation, and used his magic symbols to repel the enemy. Fight choreography is glorious. Cavill not only nailed the grunt and behavior of Geralt, but also the physical sense of "White Wolf" came into being. He spins and spins like a ballroom dancer made entirely of a knife.
However, in the witch's story, where the wizard really shines. She was a disabled farmer and her family didn't want her until she was rescued by a witch and sent to a magic school. Anya Chalotra played Yennefer brilliantly, transforming from the timid, almost concealed anger in the initial scene to a confident, publicly hostile Yennefer, anyone who has played "The Witcher 3" will be familiar. Of the three main characters, Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, she has the most interesting and convincing arc, at least in the first five episodes of this review.
The show is adapted from a short story in The Witcher, and has the characteristics of an anthology. Each character of each episode happens at a different time and jumps back and forth at the appropriate time, depending on how you piece them together. Sometimes it works, sometimes it's just confusing, because you never tell exactly which time range each sequence inserts. Once again, it feels like the show's writers are just writing songs for existing fans, not looking for their new audience. This problem can be easily solved by displaying the date on the screen at the beginning of each scene.
Episode 3 is where to find the footsteps correctly. Geralt is looking here for Striga, a woman cursed into a terrible monster. Under the weary appearance of Jeralt, he really cared about people. Well, he cares what's right-his own moral code-so he's always looking for a solution to the problem, rather than simply murdering everyone, even if he doesn't always try to solve the problem. This special episode is the "Bloody Baron" moment of The Witcher Netflix, a fascinating, budget-conscious and heartbreaking independent mission. I hope there are more similar content in the last three episodes.
If you can get past the relatively weak first two episodes, the wizard will definitely catch you in the third episode. By that time, you will be used to seeing Cavill working as hard as Geralt, and you will feel peaceful, because its budget is not as high as in Game of Thrones, and hope you can drag the Wiki page to find out that the author has no Nothing in the rest of the discussion will bother to explain. It's cruel, sometimes scary, usually fun, and well worth a witch … well, look.
