On Rotten Tomatoes, HBO’s The Last Of Us, which is based on the amazing video game by Naughty Dog, has received a perfect score from critics. After receiving reviews from 26 critics, the series, which will begin streaming on January 15, received a perfect score on the Tomatometer. The series’ fidelity to the original material is acknowledged by 26 critics. It makes sense given that the series’ main creators are the brains behind the original game’s production.
The Last Of Us’s creators are Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. the same individuals who, in a sense, created the story. Gustavo Santaolalla, who composed the music for the original game, is even on board to write the show’s score. This certainly seems to have contributed to the series maintaining the same mood and atmosphere of the original video game.
The Amazing Plot
Joel is portrayed in the series by Pedro Pascal, and Ellie is portrayed by Bella Ramsey. They are joined by people like Jeffrey Pierce as Perry, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, Gabriel Luna as Tommy Miller, and Anna Torv as Theresa “Tess” Servopoulos. The critics assert that Druckmann and Mazin succeeded in turning the video game into a live action production. As Druckmann has previously stated, the original narrative will not be changed. However, some adjustments were necessary.
The addition of character information that wasn’t present in the original game, according to several reviews, significantly helped to boost the entire narrative. These are narrative facets that the first game was unable to fully use. The live-action adaptation’s addition of these subtleties also enhanced the characters’ depth and the narrative’s overall richness. As well as providing the audience with a glimpse into their past lives, certain episodes of the series that include these extra facts assist to clarify what took place just before the planet essentially descends to Hell.
