Cowboy Bebop Review 2021 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew
They took a beautifully written and acted Anime and turned it into a horribly written and tacky live action series. And you know what the sad part is, it’s not like they tried to do a different show, they tried to remake the same show in a live action format but for some incomprehensible reason didn’t use the original lines which were perfect.
Here are some things that just don’t work. First the casting, this is an opinion but Spike and Faye should have been cast as Sung Kang, and Olivia Munn and Vicious should have been cast as Benedict Cumberbatch. They have a much better likeness and the right demeanor for those particular roles.
Second thing the original show worked because the feel was that it was a drama/tragedy with occasional quirky moments. The live action series on the other hand seems like a bad tacky comedy with occasional drama involved.
Third and I can’t stress this enough, they did everything wrong when it came to the execution of the actual pivotal scenes. For example, in the first episode in the bar scene in the anime you have the woman ordering a bloody mary, the reason for this is specifically so that the bartender can claim he’s out of tomato juice which is code for redeye, however in the live action series they cut that entire part out and replaced it with a bunch of irrelevant gibberish none of which adds to the story or establishes atmosphere.
And while we’re on subject of atmosphere why do all the henchmen look like they’re trying to act as if they were a gang from Grease? They look so obviously fake and act so poorly that I almost laughed, it’s like they picked up every reject from theater troops and put them in this live action disaster.
