Pennyworth 1×01 | Review
If there is one thing that obviously likes Bruno Heller are the origin story. So after telling us that the citizens of Gotham City in the homonymous series of FOX, including the villains, a young commissioner Gordon and a young Batman, Heller passes to Epix, keeping his character from tv is a generalist with a Pennyworth that, as the title suggests, investigates the origins of the famous butler of Bruce Wayne.
If Gotham was a series generalist but by cutting the dark, from the dark photograph that you find reservation were needed in the alleys of Gotham City, between noir and detective story, to investigate above all, the criminal underworld and the assumed “you are where you live and where you came from”, (Cdi) is a series of solar, that ride in the English countryside and the smile on the face of a young Alfred, but at the same time he lurks in the alleys of London and in its the criminal side, that robbers from two money that live in the sewers is raging between the highest echelons of power in britain. Heller imbastisce a noir that has more the flavor of the spy story, with a great plot against the Crown and of the English government, and a style that is close to the Sherlock film of Ritchie, also in the construction of the “fisticuffs” between the characters. But it is also an elegant Kingsman for the small screen, with the English aplomb that is apparent from the form is always impeccable of Alfie and other characters, which does not break down even when the situation is more complicated.
To Heller like clearly both the prequel and the DC universe of Batman. If Jim Gordon was a young man from the face of a contrite and veiled by sadness, Alfie is adorably reassured despite being a veteran of the war. Still a kid, she still lives with her, has the joke always at the ready and a british sense of humour intact in spite of the past as a soldier. The pilot just like a mini movie of an hour and ten introduces us to him, the possible girlfriend Esme immediately a victim of the plots, and a great band Thomas Wayne, to wring the wink to the fans of the Dark Knight and bring a little bit of the United States, accent full, in the United Kingdom. Just like the Barry or the Punisher serial homonyms and like all those who were in the war, Alfred has to live with having killed many people “for the Crown”, you need to understand above all others to be more of a war machine. He has his comrades-in-arms, the faithful and they, too, damaged by the war, but would like to obtain something good by opening an agency of security service.
Cdi part from the true London to get in the future if the series will continue, Gotham, the fictitious city in the Usa. The road will be long, winding and definitely full of plot twist, and we can't wait to taste.
