Am I biased, yes because I absolutely love the Gomorrah tv series written by Roberto Saviano (As is the book for this series). In fact I was looking to see if there would be a season 5 just the other day and I came across this new show.The pacing, the music, the acting, the suspense are all perfect, it's fabulous. I have only seen 2 episodes but I have little doubt the rest of the show will continue with the high standards already set out. Simply put I love these slow moving provocative crime drama's, which don't have the typical over the top action.
I am a big fan of Narco-drug series, and this one is probably the best I've watched in the past two years. It's like watching Sicario, Gomorrah and Bad blood series at same time. AMAZING. It's brutal, realistic and pretty well done. To add, if you love Gomorrah, Suburra or Romazzo Criminale, this one is for you. A truly gem's genre.
Shows like this come along only once in a very long while. An American shipping magnate that has had to resort to concealing illegal shipments to help his ailing business, an Italian mafia family and Don that is looking to come out of hiding and reward everyone (including his enemies) with a huge payday, and a Mexican Army Elite Troop who's job it is to take down the Narcos. Combine these three elements, add extra intrigue, changing allegiances, amazing cinematography, settings on more than three continents, incredible tension building episodes and you have ZeroZeroZero.
Ignore the naysayers on this site, this is one of the best shows you will see for a long time. Acting, photography, direction, are all first class. This is an incredible piece of TV that deserves to be up there with the very best.
If Charles Dickens had written an epic cartel/mafia/"Gomorrah"/"Narcos" hybrid script it would have looked something like this: a bingeable, epic, gripping, international crime thriller. A very smart, complex, brutal, clear-eyed script with three major story-lines: Buyers, Sellers, Brokers. Excellent production values; impressive level of detail, a cast of hundreds and some astonishing performances.
The story, the characters, the music, the performances...everything is superb. I really loved the mix between three countries (the suppliers, the couriers and the buyers).
I definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great series with all the ingredients.
A must watch!!
I watched 2 episodes and I must say that it's a really well done series. Sollima is become an expert about this genre. The back-and-forward narration style makes the view more captivating.
I didn't see any promotion for it before it came out. This show is great.
Don't let this series die off! It was well a thought out series. Perfectly done and needs another season to see how the organizations work together! Please let's get Swason 2 rolling! Great work by all involved!
This whole series is exceptional. Each character is amazingly crafted. Words cannot truly describe.........
Love Mogwai doing the score. Love the acting. Love the execution of each story. And I love the direction and cinematography. My only complaint is that I wish it had more episodes.
Here's hoping for a season 2!!!
A typed review does not do this show justice. It is phenomenal. Everything from the writing, actors, to the music; JUST WOW. Harold did an amazing job portraying Manuel. The cast was well picked. I can't wait for season two.
This show has everything to treat it like a real piece of art: outstanding acting, superb directing, beautiful camera work, subtle music and much more. At the same time it is entertaining and keeping you on an edge of a seat most of the time. Hoping there will be another season of this rare gem.
