The Innocent Review – A blink-and-miss thriller loaded with twists for every 15 minutes
Much like the theoretical citations go ‘character-driven works’ are always sure-footed winners, Netflix’s latest outing ‘The Innocent’ stands out to be an impeccable piece of work. Perhaps, this is one of the rarest presentations in recent times, which make your entire viewing time inevitably engrossing. From the word ‘Go’ of Episode 1 to a ‘Second’ before the final credit of Episode 8 rolls, your eyes would refrain from batting its lids. The entire series is interlarded with a package of unlimited thrills, emotions, friendship, revenge, and more than all, the way, the characters are connected. Besides, the Twists that keep reoccurring frequently leave no room for guesses on what’s gonna happen next.
The show opens with Mateo Vidal (Mario Casas) getting 4 years of imprisonment for negligent homicide, he committed. His life seemingly looks pretty serene, especially when he encounters a girl Olivia (Aura Garrido), whom he met before getting into prison. They fall in love, get married, and are about to welcome a new baby. Just when everything gets picture-perfect, it gets devastated when Olivia receives a phone call that takes Maeto through an unprecedented chain of events, which digs the past of many lives.
You don’t come across a single flaw in this show and the way, writing is done is extraordinary. To be precise, the way, the plot is written, characters are developed, and connected is amazingly done. Besides, the stellar performances of actors stand out to be a major highlight. The emotional bonding between the lead pair and the bonding among Olivia, Kimmy, and Maria are outstanding. Perhaps, their characters reflect the pain that every woman of the deprived cadre goes through.
On the whole, ‘The Innocent’ streaming on Netflix is a must-watch thriller series, which will offer an enjoyable and thrilling experience for the audience.
