kaleidoscope It is the story of a robbery spanning 24 years. Professional Thief Leo Papp (Giancarlo Esposito, the boys, mandalorian ) is his former partner Roger Salas (Rufus Sewell, dark city, knight’s tale). After receiving grim news from the prison doctor, Leo plans to steal a $7 billion bearer bond from Saras’ secure facility. They belong to a triplet, mysterious billionaires who keep their fingers on the bakery’s worth of pies. Leo has good plans and someone inside. Leo’s complicated plans are threatened by FBI agent Nathan Abasi (Niusha Noor), a grudge and recovering drug addict. But a good heist needs a crew. fucking bob.
Netflix’s experiment in non-linear storytelling has met with some success in that it technically works, but the story and script leave much to be desired. Episodes are delivered to your profile in random order. Except the robbery comes last. In my case the suggested order was ‘yellow’, ‘green’, ‘blue’, ‘orange’, ‘violet’, ‘red’, ‘pink’ and ‘white’. Each 45-60 minute episode is a self-contained story, but seamlessly connects to other episodes. The period begins 24 years before he is robbed and continues until 6 months after him as the crew deals with the consequences of their choices. fucking bob.
This series had a lot of potential, but it’s unfortunately wasted by some weird choices. Oceans 11 A similar heist movie turns to raw violence and dark humor like FargoViewers expect glitz and glamour, but get whiplash as the tone changes from one end of the spectrum to the other. Most evident when seeing “pink” before (immediately after the robbery), making the latter two adversarial at best. Violent depictions aside, it feels like something you’d see on TNT or USA. Beware of burns When white collar heyday.
Solid cast. So the main character is played by Giancarlo Esposito. He is a man with enough gravity to distort the space around him. He and Rufus Sewell have incredible chemistry, and every scene with the two of them is fun. They interrupt each other and bicker like old friends they should, but it works out. Strangely enough, Leo is married to his lawyer and lover Eva Mercer (Paz Vega, Spanglish, Rambo: Last Blood), both excellent, albeit outside of romantic interludes. American, girl), smuggler extraordinaire; RJ Acosta (Jordan Mendoza), handyman and driver; Judy Goodwin (Rosaline Elvey, rummy), chemist and explosives expert.and Judy’s husband, the belligerent safe cracker fucking bob (Jay Courtney, terminal list, Suicide Squad).
Click here for Bob.First, Jai Courtney wonderful in role. A word I never thought I’d use when Courtney was a cardboard cutout of an overly muscular white man embodying a five o’clock shadow. Divergent When Terminator: GenisysLike Sam Worthington and Charlie Hunnam, Hollywood seemed intent on turning him into a brawny leader despite burying even the slightest hint of personality. like Suicide Squad Steve Horn, Tech Entrepreneur and Aspiring Military terminal list, Courtney shows strength as a character actor. He makes it 11. kaleidoscopeCourtney struts across the screen like a bounty chicken in a colorful windbreaker, exaggerating parodies of 1970s porn stars with curly hair and bushy mustaches. He is addicted to cola, has uncontrollable impulses, and has a violent temper that is always on the verge of exploding. Courtney enjoys his role a lot. His face and body swell with repressed anger. He shows more believable raw emotion in 30 seconds than he did in the first ten years of his acting career. Judy and Bob are a package deal, and one Leo reluctantly accepts because of how much he needs Judy’s help to get into the vault. When Bob’s lack of control nearly ruins a robbery set in the Diamond on 47th Street district, it’s almost proven to be a mistake. Bob stumbles down a path of bad decisions and devastating violence that, while highly entertaining from the viewer’s point of view, have proven to be the crew’s Achilles heel. Obsessed with car sex, Judy turns a blind eye to Bob’s many character flaws. fucking bobMan.
kaleidoscope Ultimately, it becomes a morality tale about how seeking revenge leads to tragedy and suffering as a result. Creator Eric Garcia ( match stick man When repo men) can’t pick a tone and after a fun opening the story stalls because it needs to be taken seriously. Seeing ‘Pink’ or ‘Red’ before ‘White’ ruins multiple plot points It feels like Garcia has written himself into a corner as he nears the climax of the story. I recommend looking at the episode summaries on Netflix and deciding what order to watch them regardless of how they appear in your queue.Created by Leo, Saras, and Ava kaleidoscope I don’t think anyone would add it to a top 10 list, but it’s worth a look. Don’t get too attached to anyone.especially fucking bob.
