Twisted Metallic

Authentic premiere date: July twenty seventh, 2023 (Peacock within the U.S.)
Paramount+ Canada premiere date: August tenth, 2023
Style: Motion-comedy
Runtime: Ten episodes (round half-hour every)

A courier merely often known as ‘John Doe’ is tasked with transporting an necessary package deal throughout a post-apocalyptic wasteland overrun by outlaws in lethal automobiles.

Primarily based on PlayStation’s vehicular fight sport collection of the identical title, Twisted Metallic was created by Rhett Reese and Toronto’s Paul Wernick (Deadpool collection) and Michael Jonathan Smith (Cobra Kai) and stars Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn 9-9), Thomas Haden Church (Wings) and wrestler Samoa Joe and Toronto’s Will Arnett (Arrested Growth) because the physique and voice of Candy Tooth). It’s value noting that Guelph, Ontario’s Neve Campbell (Scream) additionally has a recurring function within the collection.

Our take: When the primary clip of the Twisted Metallic collection was revealed at Summer time Sport Fest, lots of people had been down with it, each within the theatre I used to be in and on-line. It’s a sentiment I’ve seen carry over main as much as the present’s launch. Nonetheless, I feel that apprehension has been utterly unwarranted. Primarily based on the primary three episodes of the collection, Twisted Metallic is a hell of a great time.

Admittedly, it’s unlucky timing that that is the following live-action PlayStation collection after the acclaimed The Final of Us. That was an awards-worthy HBO collection that was supposed to be status tv. Nonetheless, Twisted Metallic isn’t making an attempt to be that in any respect. In truth, co-creators Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Michael Jonathan Smith have a transparent deal with on precisely what this present actually is: a delightfully over-the-top and violent post-apocalyptic romp. In lots of methods, it’s paying homage to Reese and Wernick’s Zombieland each in material and tone. In the meantime, the “buddy cop highway journey” premise additionally lends itself properly to the TV format, giving every episode to throw completely different obstacles at John.

Anchoring all of which can be charming lead performances from Anthony Mackie and Stephanie Beatriz, and enjoyable appearances from the likes of Thomas Haden Church, Neve Campbell and particularly Samoa Joe/Will Arnett as Twisted Metallic mascot Candy Tooth. The collection doesn’t all the time juggle the forged that successfully — some scenes devoted to Church’s Stone and his sadistic regulation enforcement company aren’t as compelling as these with Mackie and Beatriz — however on the entire, it’s constantly entertaining.

Whether or not you’re a fan of the video games or a newcomer like me, Twisted Metallic is unquestionably value testing. Stream Twisted Metallic right here.
