News & Interviews for Altered Carbon: Season 2
The distinct episodes help keep viewers invested when "Altered Carbon" goes too heavy on diegetic mumbo jumbo or changes its own rules to set up silly twists.
Mackie gives Kovacs a suitable sort of intensity and loose-limbed physicality... New showrunner Alison Schapker (Lost, Fringe) continues expanding a fascinating world out of the novels by Richard K. Morgan.
The story itself is somewhat downgraded from a provocative examination of the role mortality plays in defining our humanity to a soap opera with a whole lot of gratuitous punching, kicking, and bleeding.
Altered Carbon's biggest asset is its visually amazing universe, and the endless possibilities that come with it. Season 2 is somewhat better than 1. [Full review in Spanish]
It had good moments, it had bad moments, it had dull moments. I kind of wish now that there was just Season 1 standing alone as a great example of the genre...
We're offered a bold new performance by Anthony Mackie, and this season also brings in exciting new characters while greatly exploring returning ones.
Season 2 might seem like it has a lot of unnecessary layers to it, however, once you give those said layers time to grow, and a much closer look, then you'll see that there is a lot to be adored.
At first it was hard to see where this season was going, and it seemed a bit less interesting than season 1. But ultimately, by the time you reach the end, it's hard not to be satisfied with the journey and the finale.
It continues the overall premise of the first season while introducing a new lead, a new case and fresh cosmic terrains for interstellar action scenes. And it's still a lot of fun to follow.
Anthony Mackie and Will Yun Lee's stellar performances save this often underwhelming second season of Altered Carbon, and while it remains enjoyable and exciting viewing, the series might now benefit from a reboot.
Audience Reviews for Altered Carbon: Season 2
6d agoA dumpster fire which lacks everything which made the first season so amazing. It's generic, almost cheesy, with little depth.
Apr 06, 2021The show took a slow turn for the worse in the second half of the first season and then quickly hurled down the hill in the second one, being completely boring and unwatchable.
Mar 23, 2021The main character lacks the emotional depth necessary to play Kovacs. The new characters are meant to reflect leftist social awareness but are in fact tired tropes. The character personalities do not even closely resemble their Season 1 personalities and leave most people who enjoyed the first season completely confused. If you watch television to have a narrow-minded political agenda paraded into your living room, you'll love this season - see the "critics" for proof.
Mar 05, 2021Anthony Mackie made this show unwatchable - dude is always plays himself and it's just rotten character - flat and uninteresting (his dumb voice made my teeth hurt)
Feb 24, 2021This is one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. From the Complexity of its Character development, superb casting, and fantastic acting. It demands an active and engaged audience to pick up on the many details. The way it depicts human nature and where it could take us in the future will send you on a rollercoaster of emotions. So many layers and attention to detail. The negative reviews are unnecessary and inaccurate to the shows complex and layered meanings. This show truly deserves more respect then the negative audience score on this site. What a gem of a show. "Im a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude."
Feb 22, 2021Damn what happened between season 1 and 2 haha.... everything is so much worst. From casting to acting. Budget and more...
Feb 20, 2021Season 1 is one of my favorite shows ever.. and I'm not even a big fan of sci fi. I looked forward to season 2, and was extremely disappointed. Had to force myself to watch without skipping this boring mess in the hopes that It would get better. It did not. If you have watched season 1 and think "how bad could it be", its worse. Just do yourself a favor and don't watch it. If I could rate it lower I would.
Feb 19, 2021Awful compared to the first season. This was disappointing in every way possible. Cheaper and poorly acted . Mackie was an awful choice to replace the imposing Kinnerman.
Feb 14, 2021Don't know what they critics were thinking rating this shit bucket of a season 2 anything higher that 30%. Utter trash compared to season 1... Watched the first episode and that was it for me. Tried my best to continue but episode 4 was the furthest I could get. Biggest flaw - Anthony Mackie was not the pick for this role, nevermind all other mindless nonsense in this excuse of a season 2. Would write more but my time would be best spent else where now.
Feb 13, 2021Aside from Anthony Mackies already abysmal & forgettable acting career.. he didn't even try to recreate Kovach from the first season in the slightest; his dialect, the way he walked, everything about him, the new Kovach is absolutely unreconizable from his predecessor in every sense of the word.. Pair that with a poorly written storyline, underwhelming character development by the rest of the cast, budget cuts to the CGI & I'm left wondering why Netflix didn't just cancel the show after the first season..everything that made season 1 interesting and compelling was completely gone & removed from season 2... I would have given it zero stars if that was an option.. if they ever make it an option, I will come back and fix the mistake.. just like they should have done on the first day seeing Anthony whatever at the table read 👎🤮
