Marco Polo One Hundred Eyes. It is a separate story about one of the most important characters of the main series, that is Marco Polo. And just like the main series – it can be enjoyed.
Marco Polo One Hundred Eyes
Sometimes on the Internet you can find entries, words, sentences or memes of delight when a marketing agency senses the market and at the right moment, during some random event, or just after it has constructed a simple, great, accurate advertisement. Dynamic Marketing.
This is what I feel about this Netflix mini-series. I just wrote in the series review Marco Polo (you can find it here: Marco Polo series. Netflix! You robber! What to watch in 2021?), There are no experts but only accountants with Netflix. I was referring to the decision that Netflix made, i.e. to delete the series, which was good, and it was getting good ratings from viewers. To be consistent in my statement, I will say that I think Netflix dismissed the experts right after deciding to shoot a mini-series Marco Polo One Hundred Eyes.
Because this decision is great. We got another nice movie product. Is it as good as the main series?
Marco Polo One Hundred Eyes – about what?
In order not to spoil it, it will only write that we get an in-depth story of one of the most interesting and very important characters from the main series. Watching the Marco Polo series I was hungry for myself and wanted to see more about this character. I also wrote that I miss more „east” in terms of fights. It’s a bit like we got a great first course, but still somewhere inside, we would still be unsatisfied, so the cook, seeing our confusion in our eyes, quickly prepared half a dish from his shortest showcase list.
This is what it is like. Such an extra. Very enjoyable. And in this case, I do not regret that it is only half a dish. It is just right. Because it is supposed to be a supplement. And in this role – it works great.
Marco Polo One Hundred Eyes – full assessment
As this is an extension of the main series, this mini-series is simply a good reflection. It makes no sense to write about individual elements. I can only write that there is no deterioration in quality. There can be only slight changes, intensity in other elements.
I have already written about the spirit of the East. It’s a bit like having a great photo and applying a different filter correctly. We’ll get another good photo. It is different and yet the same. I cannot describe it otherwise.
Finally, I will add that, of course, the story in this mini-series is interesting, but due to the scale, my rating cannot be compared to the rating from the series Marco Polo. I will rate a little lower.
Marco Polo One Hundred Eyes – want to see it again in 2 years
Probably only in this element I will significantly lower the grade. In the case of the main series, I still want to watch it again, but I do not have this „hunger” for more.
Marco Polo One Hundred Eyes – final evaluation
If someone liked the show Marco Polo it can boldly reach for the mini series Marco Polo One Hundred Eyes. If someone has not watched the main series, I recommend that you do not start your adventure with Marco Polo from this mini-series. I just don’t really think it’s a standalone production. What does it mean?
Well, it is so closely related to the main series, where we started our adventure with our main character there that by starting this journey in the world of the series from this side (i.e. the mini-series, not the main series), we will lose more than we gain.
reTraceX evaluates: I recommend.
Clarification of ratings in movie review:
At the outset, I warn you that not everyone movie will have all available ratings. There are simply fundamental assessments (the one that will always be), e.g. an assessment for a category. There are also ratings like „wanting to watch the next episode” that applies serials so it is difficult to demand the assessed one full-length film it had its raison d’être.
- Category: movie rating in its main category (of course, this is my subjective choice. Sometimes it may happen that a movie is e.g. SF share. I choose Action category because movie is better in this area. Sometimes I choose SF because in movie it can be very interesting element SFwhich will boost the film’s rating more strongly. As I said – this is it subjective evaluation but I’m not trying to hurt movie ratings. I always try to see that „something”.
- Main plot: assessment of the main story told / Side plots: e.g. flashbacks, side stories of characters
- Image, Music i Special effects: these can be historical costumes or life on another planet. I will not always pick out each of these elements. If I did not refer to it, it means that it was „neutral” in reception.
- Wanting to watch an episode: immediately after the previous one
- Willingness to come back in 2 years: would I like to see this movie or series again / was it a pleasure to watch the movie or series again
- Overall Impression: Without going into detail the overall reception.
