The First One Was Better,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bridge: Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
To be precise, the first series of The Bridge was outstanding. On the second go, on one hand it's nice to see these characters again, on the other they've lost a bit of their novelty appeal. I have to confess, too, that the theme of "eco-terrorists" which is becoming a film sub-genre, irritates me. In the real world, I have never heard of serious eco-terrorists. It seems like a right-wing attempt to splash the left with red paint and create the impression with the public that it's real blood and actual fear might be appropriate. Similarly we could have feminist terrorists, gay terrorists, rights for the homeless terrorists, breastfeeding in public terrorists...Come on! There are real right wing nuts with guns even in peaceful Norway, not to mention mass shooters every week now in America and probably a fountain of Islamist terrorists soon to be joining us from the disasters in the Middle East. Plus brilliant warped and or aggrieved criminals whose fictional existence doesn't need to stretch credibility passed the point of annoyance.
