Rinzy Reviews ‘Money Heist’ Parts 1 & 2 (2017-2018)

Thankfully, I managed to avoid watching the trailer for the third part of ‘Money Heist’ after its was released to avoid spoiling the first two parts for myself. I’m successfully caught up, and really grateful for that decision.

Money Heist‘ is exhilarating. Very few shows triumphantly achieve what this one does to your blood pressure. It is suspense personified.

Although there are few lapses in logic and choices certain characters make, like a police inspector falling in love with an odd guy while on a life-altering mission, it’s really nothing distracting, and can be chalked down to pacing for the purpose of dramatization.

I’ve never really been a fan of non-English based contents, but this show got me intrigued enough to consider other contents Spain and the rest of the world have to offer. The top-notch acting coupled with how interesting the major (and some minor) characters are makes the show quite addictive. If I were asked to pick my top three, it’d be – Berlin, Tokyo, and The Professor. I couldn’t get enough of their personal arcs and backstories; they were really fun to follow. The cinematography, set pieces, and props (particularly those heavy machineries) were beautiful sights to behold too.

The ending of the second part leaves a bit to be desired; the fairly happy ending came across as cliche, and if we’re being honest didn’t justify another season. From what I see in this trailer, for the next adventure we’re going from money heist to prison break, and that’s a clear sign that the show’s fulfilled destiny and should call it quits. Considering its recent popularity it’d be hard for #Netflix to cut it lose, but if they do I believe it’ll help preserve fond memories, which is certainly for the best.

PS: Arturito should be crowned the king of annoyance; man’s so annoying I wanted the heist-men to shoot him multiple times. Argh!

The third part of Money Heist arrives today on Netflix
