The Last Enemy Reviews

  • Aug 26, 2016

    The technology part & the suspense of the story are very appealing. But the love relationship between Steven & Yasim is so thin, not grounded and unrealistic as it's so forcefully made (in order to be Steven's motivation to drive him get involved deeper & deeper). But the overall social scenario painted by this story could be our future and very scary.

    Explores a dystopian future where privacy is on the verge of disheartening. Good cast and acting, but writing and directing left much to be desired. Lack of production value was obvious. While a derivative story, told better elsewhere, it was still entertaining.

    Excellent story, well done, logical, and very realistic in the english world. There was a time when the english claimed territories for their own and used a disease that could discriminately kill the enemy and not them. Smallpox, and to lesser degree, tuberculosis and other childhood diseases. Transpose this mentality to a near future and we understand the english roots of the Last enemy. It is a very well rendered tale of an onmipotent and ominous government that although wanting to be good, allow evil and does evil to contain it. We really feel the greyness of the of good and bad with the english. From my point of view, the lesser evil is still evil and we end up questionning ourselves about the possibility of uprooting all evils in the human world. My take is: don't put the english in charge of this! Which explains the state of the world now and the difficulty with so many evils to contain. And I don't mean only muslims extremists, but all greedy evils.

    it took a while for me to get into this, because it's not really my genre, and the romance developed in the earlier episodes felt very contrived. as the conspiracy picked up momentum though, i was sucked into the world of the series and what it had to say about the dystopian implications of our inevitable future.

    Five episodes of total chaos! From the start I loved it and enjoyed it! The acting was out of this world, same the score and script. The editing...not so much but can be forgiven sometimes. And the ending...super sad! So yes, it was worth the watch. If you love 24, The event (well, a few episodes I can say) or Homeland, this show (even if it's short) is for you. - 4 stars of 5. August 8, 2013 (review).

    Cumberbatch shines as a socially inept, shy genius who must come to terms with all aspects of the life he has and the life he wishes to have. Brilliant screenplay, well directed and edited.

    For those of us who are deeply concerned about the erosion of privacy, liberty, and freedom to create our own way in the world, this razor-edged thriller about the small gains and major losses when all data collected on a person is centralized and accessible to âauthoritiesâ? is terrifyingly real. The idea has been dumbed down by over-spin and misinformation campaigns, but Benedict Cumberbatchâ(TM)s outstanding performance and the empathy he draws from viewers as he fights for identity itself in a universe of deceptions is unforgettable. The viewer is viscerally involved and mentally challenged to keep from losing his own mind as (s)he watches Cumberbatch frantically try to hold on to his own.
