Another day calls for another tedious banter over sorting the perfect binge list; and what to eat; and where to lay down; and whether to shower or just let it slip…
1. The humble exposition.
The trailer is a homogenous blend of calmness and rapid action. The exposition is grand in a calm, humble and sleek way. We are introduced to the protagonist in a soft look that radiates strength. It is intriguing, cool and engaging! (unlike my life, alas!)
2. The slow-mo action flurry.
Honestly, roaring soldiers, dimly lit tunnels paired with splashes of fire and water in slow motion look majestic and can rile up even the sloppiest of humans!
3. The emotional debris deal-maker.
An action thriller, without complex emotional qualities is just another dry attempt. And this moment right here, proves that ‘The Terminal List’ has a well structured emotional quotient that no one can ignore.
4. The ultimate war siren!
This shot marks the beginning of a stellar series of grasping action sequences and a man’s unhinged quest for truth! This seems like the proper calm before a storm for justice.
5. The beginning of the aftermath.
This glimpse opposes the exposition and hints at another hidden attribute of the protagonist: the unstoppable warrior. We cannot get enough of the contrasting tones and smooth transitions for sure!
Coming from the Director of ‘Training Day’, Antonie Fuqua, the trailer sets high expectations with its bluish grey frames, low-key lighting and cinematic shots with a perfect blend of soft and tough background music.
So let’s buckle up and wait for this jam-packed series to drop on Amazon Prime Video on July 1!
