Luke Cage Season 2 TV Review: Still Doesnt Quite Know What It Wants to Be

It took me about half the second season of Luke Cage to figure out why I was having such a hard time getting sucked into it. Its not that the characters are bad, or that it isnt written well. Individual pieces of season 2 are, in fact, extremely compelling and even thought-provoking. But the whole of it just doesnt add up. Officially, season 2 of Luke Cage is about, according to the official synopsis: With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain. I can see that, abstractly. The main thrust of the season involves a three-pronged conflict Luke Cage himself (Mike Coulter) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick) in one corner, Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) and Shades Alvarez (Theo Rossi) in another, and a Jamaican badass called the Bushmaster (Mustafa Shakir, who is incredible) in the third.   ...Read More... https://www.thewrap.com/luke-cage-season-2-tv-review-still-doesnt-quite-know-what-it-wants-to-be/

Luke Cage Season 1 Episode 8 Review: “Blowin’ Up The Spot”

Through the first two acts, Luke Cage has been another solid installment to the Marvel Netflix family. Although the show has operated at a slower pace than Daredevil and possibly even more so than Jessica Jones, it seems to fit the style and tone of the show and it’s setting. Yes, there have been conflicting views between people like Luke, Cottonmouth and Mariah, but each character cares about Harlem and is trying to leave their impact on it. This is what sets Luke a part from the rest though, because he’s the only one with pure intentions that will actually help. Luke Cage is yet another diverse show for the MCU to incorporate, and that’s what makes it so much fun, because once again Marvel has released a show that feels drastically different from the companion shows while still having the same theme of heroes growing into their famous roles. The show obviously is not without it’s faults, but so far Luke Cage has been providing another unique look at a hero operating in a part of New York, and with the shocking death of Cottonmouth at the end of last episode, it looks like things might elevate even more.

Luke Cage Season 1 Episodes 12 & 13 Review

I do not likeLuke Cage. I want to say that upfront, before I review the last two episodes, so that you know what youre in for. If youre looking for something positive, this is not the place to look. Aside from the respectability politics (a thread that is hammered hard early on, and then disappears for long stretches before being hammered again), I find that this show doesnt work on a number of levels. After the first trailer, I had high hopes. I had come around on Mike Colter as Luke Cage, after being skeptical of his performance inJessica Jones. ...Read More... //www.tvovermind.com/tv-news/luke-cage-season-1-episodes-12-13-review?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=luke-cage-season-1-episodes-12-13-review

Luke Cage Season 1 Episodes 10 & 11 Review: “Take It Personal”/”Now You’re Mine”

I definitely understand why people think the Marvel Netflix shows could use a few less episodes. Luke Cage is extremely compelling, don’t get me wrong, but I decided to write about these episodes together, because I feel like they could’ve told this story in one episode. It was still incredibly fun to watch, dramatic, and realistic (as you can be in Marvel, of course), but it could have moved just ever so slightly quicker. A quick recap of these episodes of Luke Cage: Luke’s life is saved, but he learns the truth about Reva, and about Willis Stryker. Mariah turns the neighborhood against Luke by framing him for more crimes. Luke returns to Harlem just in time to save Misty from a hail of gunfire. Diamondback and his crew create a hostage situation inside the club, while Luke, Misty, and Claire are still inside. READ MORE...
