Apple TV+ is out and, so far, most of what I’ve watched is very good, including Jason Momoa in See. Luke Dormehl seems disappointed:
A futuristic post-apocalyptic world in which a virus has robbed humanity of its eyesight and reduced the human race to a few million people. Even speaking of sight in this world is heresy.
If anything, See is Game of Thrones dark. No pun intended.
See is not quite the goofy fun I expected
Goofy fun? What brought that on?
Really, what I hankered after was more goofiness. Momoa is always a good screen presence, but See takes itself so darn seriously that we don’t get to, err, see any of his natural likeability. He’s here to yell manly, motivational things, like a calendar of quotes from Gladiator’s Maximus Meridius used unironically to inspire the troops on a middle manager office away day.
I do not understand from where such goofy expectations came.
