The Passage onlineProject Rebirth will tell an eerily frightening story that can be mistaken for real. The plot takes viewers to South America. A surprising discovery was made by a group of people who were bitten by bats. The bites of these creatures cured them of cancer. Scientists, having learned about this miraculous method of treatment, began to study bats. True, it was soon discovered that all those who were cured had changed much more than it might seem at first glance. People bitten by bats turned into vampires, whose population began to grow imperceptibly and soon reached critical proportions.
I don't know what place the people who wrote the comments below thought, but thanks to them I spent several hours of my life on a series with a good idea, but, at the same time, full of stupidity, in which there is no logic and causality. And in my commentary, I will try to objectively show with examples why this series should not be watched by people who, when watching, turn on their brains at least a little and start asking questions at the right time. (if you are ready to endure conventions, then you can not read further) !! Possible spoilers !!. Let's start.The research center, where experiments on people are carried out, should be an impregnable bunker (on both sides) with personnel - professionals in their field. But in fact, this is almost a sanatorium with workers whose average IQ clearly does not exceed 70. In one of the scenes, the main character tells the girl that in the corridor every 5 meters there will be a guard patrol and it will be almost impossible to escape, but when the same GG steals a key card at the autistic security guard and leaves the room, then in the hallway ... EMPTY facepalm. There are no cameras in the rooms of the test subjects, or at least wiretaps (so the girls and the girl can discuss and do whatever they want there), not to mention the constant presence of guards in the rooms with super important test subjects. (Although in episode 6 the security chief says "... we saw on the cameras in the basement how someone escaped there ..." WTF? Have you decided to save money on cameras?) Facepalm. The Negro, the girl's neighbor, communicates by passing a piece of paper through the gap under the door between their rooms. It's soooo cute. But does it bother anyone that in addition to the leaf they also transmit a huge marker with which they write? Sound passes through a 2 cm gap perfectly, without burning already that sound also passes through a tightly closed door. What the girl actually proved to us when she heard her friend's painful cough. facepalm The same negro at the final stage of transformation into a bloodthirsty monster is kept in an ordinary room without any protection. And even when he already began to become a vampire, no one isolated him. Didn't even tie it. Naturally, he gnawed half of the staff. A logical question arises - how have they not gnawed everyone there yet, because there were already 10 experimental subjects before the Negro. Either life teaches researchers nothing, or they don't care about the lives of their workers. facepalm. The moment with the Chinese doctor is just the apotheosis of stupidity. He decided that if vampires are prone to telepathy, then he can use it to control them. For the experiment, he asks with the power of thought (although in fact in his thoughts he said all his commands aloud to the vampire) to raise the arm / leg of the vampire psychopath. He follows the order and the doctor, without any confirmation, concludes that the experiment was successful and he can control the vampyram with thought. And no one even thought that the vampire was simply indulging a stupid doctor in order to gain confidence. facepalm. Naturally, he then kills the doctor and at first no one even finds out about it, because the stupid heroes ALWAYS go to dangerous places one by one (and there are no cameras, as we already know, in the top-secret complex). facepalm. Most workers have dreams in which experimental vampires interact with them and suggest various thoughts. And it doesn't bother anyone that almost everyone's dreams are identical. After all, telepathy - "this is nonsense and a manifestation of black magic." Although they themselves have 10 vampires in the basement 0_o. And after a few episodes, all of a sudden all of a sudden begin to believe in paranormal things. Why? What has changed in their logic? What information has appeared for the half of the episode? ¯ _ (ツ) _ / ¯ facepalm. And such stupidity at every step. As a result, we have a series with an interesting idea, a beautiful picture (scenery and actors), but with a complete lack of logic and consistency both in the plot and in the actions of the characters. If there is absolutely nothing to do, then you can watch it, but if you think at least a little while watching the series, then feel free to walk by! Hopefully, amid a bunch of frankly narrow-minded comments, my mini-review will help save time for people with IQs above 100.
If you love a simple fantasy that hates a huge amount of deep meaning, containing in itself notes of the fatality of what is happening and a good deal of drama based on moral and moral choice, which almost always burdens any human being, then this series is for you. The question that raises in this series with a bang is - why do I want what I want ?! And what should I do with the fact that my "want" and my "have" will forever remain in absolutely parallel planes, without any intersections. Scientists working on the drug fought one death and found another in its place. But is it the ultimate? And if so, for whom? So far, the series does not resemble a classic series about vampires, but remotely rather the theme of the walking dead, proposed by one of the TellTale games, where a hero named Lee finds the girl Clementine during the zombie apocalypse and takes care of her throughout the game process and takes responsibility for her life. The plot of this series is similar. It should be noted that in spite of the relative simplicity of the plot, the actors do their job well and completely re-release their acting potential, but, as they say, in taste and color. It makes sense to try to find something interesting for yourself in this series, if the viewer is looking for an atmosphere of ease and uncomplicatedness. And who knows, maybe the series itself will sooner or later also undergo a rebirth.
Honestly waiting for this series. Even though I haven't read the book. Therefore, I will take the word of those who claim that the book is better. The book is almost always better, with few exceptions. Just after reading the enthusiastic comments, there are quite a few of them, I decided to speculate a little on the topic. Is this show as good as they say about it? And here is my opinion. For me personally, a series that by the third minute loses all the intrigue of further narration is a wake-up call. Seriously. I held out steadfastly for three episodes, I will definitely not look further. And I'll explain why. Firstly, instead of giving the viewer a "base", we are simply fed "bread" by plugging our mouths, because when a person chews, he does not think. All this action that took place in the first two episodes is not needed at all, it looks just as cheap as the main characters. Super-kawaii black girl, moderately brainy and a former Marine with the eyes of a golden retriever and the determination of a German shepherd. And after all, many bought it. But guys, you can't start the series with the "tea and sandwich" series. The viewer is simply thrown into the brazen in the midst of events that do not carry any obvious meaning, and then, along the way, with flashbacks, they convey some thought to him, piece by piece, although everything is already clear, and all these memories are not even reveal characters, just chatter about nothing. Secondly. This is not science fiction, or even pseudoscientific. It does not smell here either one or the other. All the information, in fact, was given from a gulkin's beak and basically continue to engage in pulling the cat for a causal place. As for the actors, almost all of them are pale moths. Oh yes, there are also the dumbest screamers in it, but this is a completely separate song, like the dialogues and even some scenes. Realism in the series is just a drop. I do not understand in short. Even the series "Strain" 2014. was more interesting, although it was complete nonsense. But under it you could at least beat macaros or something else. Fair. Having finally got bored of the third episode, I firmly decided to give up watching this series and never come back to it, since there is something to see, "The project is classified" for example, is also not a masterpiece, but at least not so dull and there is certainly more sense than here. Score 4/10. The series "Rebirth" simply does not pull for more. In cinematography, there are very clear concepts when writing a script. The local scriptwriters clearly neglected them, just to interest the viewer, as a result - a vinaigrette turned out.
Good day. Probably, these are my first works in general, which are not associated with the published series, but only with the expected. You know, I watched the trailer for this series and now I’m just on pins and needles, because I really want to see if this multi-part project will be just as good. Indeed, often, when, for example, you sit in the cinema and play premieres before the show, you very often remember some projects for yourself because the most interesting excerpts are shown by the series. And we are talking about the series "Rebirth" - yes, the name is completely ordinary and inconspicuous, which cannot be said about the declared plot itself.It has been a long time since I was so fascinated by a project that I hadn’t even watched yet. Although, maybe I am in a hurry. But I don’t know about you, but it happened to me personally that you are really looking forward to the release, but I don’t like what happened. I am very afraid to be disappointed in this series too, because what I saw in the trailer attracted me very much. This is an age-old and already very hackneyed topic about vampires, as it seems to me, it simply cannot but be interesting. And even more so, as I understood from the description for the series, these are not just vampires from nowhere. People themselves very often make mistakes in what they do. The main characters of this project did not expect such a negative effect at all. If we dwell on the plot in a nutshell, then as I understand it, it will consist in the fact that people at one moment found a panacea for cancer. Those people who were bitten by bats were able to overcome a terrible disease - cancer. And it seems that this is the solution - to overcome such a terrible diagnosis, which for many serves as a terrible sentence, you just have to go through a small bite. But do not rush to conclusions, because having got rid of one problem, humanity has acquired much larger-scale problems, because those whom they "cured" of cancer with bites gradually began to turn from doomed to death into immortal monsters. And this is worse. It seems to me that this series will just have everything that is needed for a good series. By itself, I already really like this plot. It is interesting, lively and, it seems to me, very dynamic. And for the series, this is exactly what you need. I really liked this project with just such moments. I just really hope that this series will not disappoint me at all. The announced actors are definitely attracted to this series. For example, young Sanya Sidney. Despite her young age, this actress has already managed to appear in more than ten projects. And this is not just a quantity. The series and films where this young actress plays have very high ratings. That only is "American Horror Story". In general, I really look forward to a good performance from this actress in this project. For some reason, it seems to me that in this film she will be able to show herself just at her best. Definitely this show should bring a lot of interesting surprises. One of the main characters, as I understand it, is Jason Fuchs, who starred in the recently released and thundered "La la Land". And there are just a lot of such examples for this series. I think that this in itself should convince that the series should turn out to be very cool, because such cool actors and a plot are declared in it. The expected premiere is January two thousand nineteen and there is not much time left to wait. I hope that expectations will be justified, because this film has every chance to conquer the viewer. Look and I think that you yourself can easily verify this. Enjoy your viewing and only positive emotions for you. We will look forward to the release of this tempting and at first glance very high-quality project called "Rebirth". This story, it seems to me, will be just on the verge of perception by emotion. And this is always great. We wait!
