First Impression Of Money Heist – S01E01

An article written by Lee Sonogan

Spanish: La casa de papel, translation. The House of Paper or simply Money Heist is a Netflix Spanish made series recommended by a friend. Looking up some ratings and finding over 8/10s everywhere I looked, It was definitely worth checking out. Making taking what you want seem cool, thriller elements keep you on your toes. And intensity built was more than enough for myself to reccomend this first episode in the first paragragh.

IMDB describes this show as: An unusual group of robbers attempt to carry out the most perfect robbery in Spanish history – stealing 2.4 billion euros from the Royal Mint of Spain.

Further detailing what the television show is all about It was different than you might expect although very solid for many reasons. Reminded by Reservoir Dogs or any other crime story with dark comedy, it’s fast-paced action is still able to pack in important plot development. It contains some international style in references and how it is filmed. Then each character is interesting distinct from the rest.

ABC Spain reported way back in October 2019 before Season 4 had aired that the show had been commissioned for Season 5. Maybe theirs a review for ENTERTAINMENT CULTURE ONLINE in the future if they keeping making it. Already I have a favourite character code-named Berlin taking control in the ending half. Overall I rate this pilot episode 7.6 out of 10 although all the potential in the world to improve as Part 1 of a current 4 to be so much better.

The episodes were shot in order and the actors only received the scripts for each episode as they were shooting, so they also did not know what their character’s fate would be. Álvaro Morte (The Professor) said the actors would message each other with excitement when they received a new script.
