Revving Up Disappointment: ‘Twisted Metal’ Misses the Comedy and Action Mark!

Twisted Metal review

Table of Contents

Twisted Metal has just hit the screens, and it’s bringing a mix of crazy action and quirky fun.

Now, I have to be honest, I was super excited for this one, being a fan of the game series. But after watching the show, I’ve got some thoughts to share.

First things first, let’s talk about the good stuff. Anthony Mackie, who plays John Doe, really brings his A-game. He’s got this charm that just draws you in, and it’s clear he’s having a blast with the role. And the chemistry between him and Stephanie Beatriz’s character, Quiet, is a highlight. Their budding relationship adds a nice layer of warmth to the crazy post-apocalyptic world they’re in.

Hit and Miss: Humor Falls Flat, Action Leaves You Wanting More

But here’s where things get a bit rocky. The humor in Twisted Metal tries hard, maybe a little too hard. Some of the jokes just fall flat, which is a bummer because in a show like this, you’re hoping for some good laughs. And speaking of laughs, I was expecting more from Sweet Tooth, the wild and wacky clown character. While the show tries to make him funny, it doesn’t quite hit the mark. It’s like they had all these ingredients for a hilarious recipe, but something got lost in the mix.

The action scenes are there, no doubt about that. But if you’re a fan of the game series, you might find the car combat a bit underwhelming. It’s like having a big scoop of ice cream with not enough toppings – you’re left wanting more. I get that budgets can be tight, but in a show about cars and chaos, you’re hoping for some mind-blowing crashes and stunts.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the show has its moments. The world they’ve built, with walled cities and a crazy wasteland, is intriguing. And Mackie’s character, John, trying to find his place in this chaos, is relatable. But sometimes it feels like the show is juggling too many things at once. It’s like trying to spin too many plates – you’re worried one might drop.

In the end..

Twisted Metal is a rollercoaster of excitement and disappointment. It’s got potential, there’s no denying that. But it’s like they’re revving the engines without really hitting full throttle. Anthony Mackie shines, and there are glimpses of what could have been. If you’re into action-packed shows with a side of humor, give it a shot. Just be ready for a ride that might leave you wanting a little more.



Don’t just scratch the surface. Get the best of the beasts!
