September 1, 2019
Mute gets so caught up in the mystery aspect of the story that all logic swirls together with nonsense resulting in this muddy sci-fi diarrhea with head scratching character turns and questionable reveals that aren't fully explained.

Good performances, a stimulating production design work and a remarkable third act. [Full Review in Spanish]

It gives the impression that the project is conclude before screenplay studies and some quality control that could solve the mistakes. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sadly, the interesting cyberpunk backdrop isn't paired with a story that delivers any excitement, suspense or thrills to speak of.

Skarsgård is a fine actor, but between his lack of spoken dialogue and a character written with as much personality as the bedpost he wields in combat, he's seldom engaging.

Duncan Jones tried to make something compelling with Mute... but his movie is just a disappointing mess. [Full review in Spanish]
February 16, 2019
We're honestly trying to offer something constructive and work out what went wrong with Mute. Maybe Jones just needs to put down the pen, stay behind the camera, and keep an eye on the big picture.

For as debased and violent as Mute is, it's also incredibly cerebral and Netflix encourages the kind of online social engagement that cultivates discussion.

It won't be for everyone, but it's something strangely compelling to watch.

For too long it just feels like we're watching a very compelling detective story being inexplicably interrupted at regular intervals by a series of disconnected cyberpunk character-vignettes.
October 30, 2018
There are great ideas and some incredible design on display that have to contend with aspects of the script and story that might've been better excised.
August 28, 2018
But every time a writer-director with the name recognition of Jones delivers a work of this level, it only serves to prove those risk-averse studio executives right.
August 24, 2018
Slow and listless, lacking tension or a sense of danger, it's a pastiche with aspirations to being a movie that ends up a very expensive pageant.

If you binged Altered Carbon and are still craving more of this dark and gritty world filled with lots of rain and neon lights, then Netflix has a gift for you.
April 19, 2018
"Mute" is by no means unwatchable, but ultimately inspires us to re-watch the movies that inspired it.

If films like this stop being funded altogether in favour of crowd-pleasers rather than crowd-challengers, we're damned. That's your most plausible dystopian future, folks.
March 31, 2018
One of those frustrating movies that starts off well and gradually goes off the rails. And after a two hour investment, it delivers a spectacularly underwhelming payoff.
March 28, 2018
Worth checking out once you've seen Netflix's Annihilation, but before you get into Altered Carbon.
March 19, 2018
What could've been a dark and emotional whodunnit instead feels viscerally clipped and not particularly worthy of the clear effort that's been made building this beautiful world.
March 13, 2018
The whole film is populated by people you don't believe or care at all about, behaving in ways that don't make sense against a cheap-looking sci-fi-by-numbers backdrop
