There's a lot to like, perhaps even more to be frustrated at. Sometimes, AC finds its footing, borrows from the best noirs and really soars. Others, it loses itself in an unnecessarily convoluted plot that has trouble rewarding the viewers. Still, the world building is top notch.
Incredible SFX and choreography (and acting from some minor roles), with undercurrents of philosophy and sociology that grow within the world building - it never fails to get you to question the ideas presented.

La série cyberpunk Altered Carbon livre un monde déprimé et déprimant où le corps humain est devenu un objet de pure consommation. Ce polar mâtiné de SF s'encastre dans le plafond de verre de nos rapports sociaux dans laquelle butte si souvent la SF et n'offre rien d'autre qu'un réductionnisme social fait de pure violence, de machisme exacerbé et d'augmentation simpliste... Le futur comme personne n'en veut.
