    I will when I can. It promised to be basically a Shadowrun movie but then the trailer says "by the creators of Suicide Squad", so my expectations are lukewarm. Of course featuring Will Smith as Will Smith.

    It shares the Director but the Script is by Max Landis, who hated Suicide Squad so that's a weird promotional slogan.

    Its more Alien Nation and less Shadowrun me thinks.

    Yeah, for sure. Or even District 9-y, without the commitment to its setting. Will put some thoughts at the movies thread tomorrow. I can say I've quite liked it and that it's the best Netflix original I've seen.

    I saw it. It wasn't really all that good. They _really_ squandered the setting and worldbuilding. I really wanted to see a world that's a bit more realistic and believable than this sorta grim setting with Fantastic Racists and all these fucking stereotyped fantasy creatures.

    Liked that they kept it tight. Supposedly there are nine races and Centaurs and Dwarves are a thing but it stays focused in the ones on the matter. And I don't know, worldbuilding wasn't really a focus and I appreciate that the intro is, while heavy handed, not a hamfisted narration or a similar element.
