Best movie of this year hands down!
Nice effects though.
Best movie ever!
It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
Just imagine if instead of 23 eps a season there were 12 or 13? This show would have benefited immensely from a shorter production format. We could have had less filler eps, more engaging flow, and much less ridiculous shoot outs. The writing staff is brilliant, no doubt about it and production values off the charts; too bad it got diluted by the 23 ep seasons. Of course my ideas are arguable but let's try to fathom a shorter season and while we're at it let's wonder if Warner would have been less avaricious, would the show have lasted longer?
If John was more of a bad-ass, maybe like Jack Reacher or Steven Seagal, Person of Interest would not be 8 or 9 or 10, it would be 110, in other words fantastic. John gets his butt kicked too much. You never know if he's going to prevail and maybe that's why small minded thinkers think people like the show better, but that's wrong and easily proven wrong. Make John like Reacher and watch the reviews go up and up. People our days like the hero and winning, not the almost or delayed hero that recuperates, sometimes for months before coming back - that's boring. I love it when Reacher says "in 30 seconds you will be wearing these handcuffs" or Seagal fights so efficiently he never loses and you know going to beat the crap out of his opponents. What makes it more better to see your hero lose? That's why the largest crowds follow a team who has never lost in NCAA playoffs, etc.
Person of Interest is one of the most underrated tv series of all time. Little sroties are as good as the main story. Saving people and character's (John's, Harold's etc) background stories are good as well. Main story is placed in a very good and attractive way. I don't know why this serie gets 8.5 point.
First of all I am a television skeptic. I hope for the best but tire quickly of mundane brain fodder. Over the past few years I have developed a habit of ignoring popular taste and wait until a show finishes its run before deciding whether to binge-watch the finished work. Many shows jump the shark over the course of their run and I want no part of that. This technique paid off wonderfully for the show "House" which, despite periodic cast changes, stayed interesting to the end."Person of Interest" took a topic from the headlines (Artificial Intelligence) and made the future seem current. But far from a sci-fi shoot-em-up, this series sharpened its intelligence as it matured. (I have just finished my second binge watch of the entire series and will start a third.) The characters that populate this world are wonderful and flawed. Good guys are at times bad and the bad guys refuse to become one-dimensional. The motivations behind evil forces are understandable, if not convincing. Ruthless killers discover the capacity for change and redemption and often become heroes. Hope for the human soul springs eternal. The final two seasons are as moving and poignant as anything I have ever seen on television, The great question of the series is whether humans will sacrifice the free will of choice over their own lives in exchange for protection of an all-seeing power. And if we relinquish free will, of what value is humanity? At the series end mankind and machine seem to verge into one with the AI learning compassion what it means to be human. As Amy Acker's character, Root, sums up the ephemeral, fleeting nature of human life: "Everyone dies alone. But if you mean something to someone...if you help someone or love someone, and even a single person remembers you... then maybe you never really die at all?"This is a series that pays off, in its conclusion, for having had faith in the consistency of its message. Binge watching was created for works like this. Like a great sweeping novel. Beautiful.
