Weak visual effects
‘The Witcher’ is a TV series which uses two books whose narratives are non-linear as the main source material though continuing with the same non-linear pattern of storytelling which in other movie would have been a blow off but was done beautifully here. A story where Geralt who finds himself struggling in a wicked world was blessed with a powerful sorceress and a gifted princess.
Storytelling was awesomely done not deviating from the source material and going at a familiar pace which the books and the games follow, though with the introduction of some new characters with some of them being introduced earlier than in the books.
Some of the major drawbacks though were the not so great visual effects as some of the audience sure we’re expecting the effects to be like that of GOT which unfortunately wasn’t so but we’re hoping as the series goes on there’ll be an improvement and also the editing was off as the timelines couldn’t be differentiated as it was jumping from past to present and from present to past which you’ll only realize if you pay close attention, it was quite confusing.
The cinematography was great, the combats were done beautifully, the sword fights were pretty realistic and felt natural and also the writing was done amazingly with lots of comedic value as well as dark/medieval tones.
All characters gave a spectacular performances and the character development was dope.
Henry Cavill felt natural playing the role of Geralt with his energetic voice which you’ll fail to realize that it’s not his real voice. Freya Allan as princess Ciri was great. Anya Chalotra as Yennefer was brilliant as she sees her magical and seductive powers as a benefit and uses them to exploit the weaknesses of men. Her origin story was disclosed smoothly unlike in the books where the reverse was the case. Joey Batey as Jaskier/Dandelion was extraordinary with the great chemistry he shared with Geralt and his splendid comedy providing comedic relief to the audience.
Finally, ‘The witcher’ is an interesting and amazing series that was beautifully done for pure entertainment bringing you out to a whole new world of witches and having you crying for more.
Bottom line: an amazing piece
