The Boys

The action series is set in a world where there are superheroes. They are the real stars. They all know and love.

Further personal opinion

If you evaluate the series fairly, except the idea, which is excerpted from the original comic book Garth Ennis 2006 nothing outstanding here do not.

To be honest, that the special effects look weak, all the plot twists are easily guessed, and acting for a few exceptions (Karl urban Anthony Starr) does not cause any particular emotion. And draw a series of ideas from the original comic book — black humor, developed characters and of course the banter of the cliché of the comic super-heroes.

But the amazing thing is that all this was not necessary to the series is shot. The main advantage of the series — they guessed time issue. Now on the background of the endless stream of superhero movies from Marvel DC, the original idea of the comic book on the screen looks so fresh and went to them so well narrated that the series looks at same all the cons that would be noticeable normal series, you just close my eyes.

This assessment after watching the first season. See what happens.

The boys — this superhero series 2019, published on Amazon Prime Video.

The project tells the story of the universe, where superheroes exist as the official unit of society. They are in the Corporation, are its employees get paid, somehow integrated in the police and, of course, connected with show-business and politics. The action takes place in USA. And there's no other way to be is not could. Next, you will understand why.

It all starts with that the average person, as we you, understands something unhappy: it the girl inadvertently kills one of the superhero. It all that this ordinary man (his name is Huey) begins deeper and deeper to get involved in the brawl. First he refuses to accept money from corporations over the privacy and enters the circle of desperate criminals who want to overthrow the super heroes. And our usual Huey, working in the electronics store turns into a high-tech gangster.

The surprise was that the series focuses on Huey and friends more than on the superheroes. I nothing knew show up to view it: as not watching trailers, not read reviews — nothing was extremely shocked as the creators of the project decided to tell his story.

All this culture of superheroes serves as a mass market. Each of them — this kind of brand. It obviously an allusion to the modern showbiz. Characters like actors or musicians: they are writing of the person that the people shavaet, clean biography, write speeches, create products like toys, to get more profit and superheroes, like, normally from this: they people are adults, get there a salary, officially — why do something else.

But all small steps to moving to show us what here is not all so simple. There is a secret history, hushed up scandals, and dark spots immaculate images a lot more than anticipated.

The cast is brilliant. There are little-known actors and more serious. In any case, each suitable for their role and all beautiful. With the special effects worked out carefully. It is obvious that the budget is not huge, so spent wisely and showed expensive scene in small snatches. Everything looks smooth, not worry. No sense of cheapness. Camera work, editing, too, on level. A lot of original semi-documentary scenes, great job with a picture of the life of a superstar. It becomes clear as the entire a huge machine and what exactly is a modern media personality. Jewelry work on the fullness of the world.

Of roughness it is possible to allocate more compressed storylines. Each of the main superhero is given the screen time to study of the character except one. It looks at least weird. There are silly moments, but they are very rare.

Why the localizers have translated the name as "the Boys" remains a mystery. I long indulged in the pleasure to see this series because of the associations connected with that word. District cattle and Russian TV series, you know? Why not translated or Guys, or to perform semantic translation? Would Desperate or something like that. But it's certainly not in the negative series. For word.

Looked in one gulp over 2 days. So carried away that I can sit for the important things, work and T. p.: See, I had learn that will happen next. The series makes a good attack on the superhero genre and modern showbiz. The story is clearly original all the parameters. A fresh look at superheroes. The boys tried to show more real picture, creating as believable a world where possible people in cloaks. If you think about close the spirit, I remember Batman vs Superman, Deadpool and the umbrella Academy. The genre of superhero films is going through very unusual times. In it takes more revolutions than in any other genre. Someone even can say that he destroys himself in similar projects, and something will be right. In General, the product is extremely exciting and original!

During the first-class series which is close to good quality movies, "Guys" can surprise that not all so rosy, because disappointing. The whole series can be described by the formula banal nudity+blood+Supes, without under the series even sleep would be a boring. All the plot twists predugadat with the first of the series, the dialogues are plain, meaningless, and if they are attempts of humor, then he many flat and beard, that my grandfather would be envious to the length of this beard. In addition to this, struck the first series but it — the number of brilliant ideas that the characters embody, trying to kill the defenseless naked super and decided that the most sacred formula.

I would like tell about advantages in addition to tolerable the artists and not the sharp eye of special effects to take. To unfortunately, even in the staging of the fights kinoha not possess that the big negative for popcornopolis series about Supes. Yes, directed by tried standard to present "heroes", showing their dark side, but depth this, therefore, while there is such a standard as  the"Keepers" of "the Boys" will not look good.
