CRITICS One piece

Nov 5, 2023 | Series Reviews

Adapting a manga to real image, until now, had become a guarantee of failure. Death Note, Dragon Ball Evolution, Ghost in the Shell... One Piece breaks this inertia, becoming one of Netflix's biggest hits in recent years in just a few weeks.

Based on the popular original manga by Japanese author Eiichiro Oda released in 1999, American creators Matt Owens and Steven Maeda(Luke Cage, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) build an entertaining plot with many cinematic references.

The adventures of this young protagonist, starring the likeable Mexican actor Iñaki Godoy, have a heritage that goes from the Errol Flynn films of the 1930s to the popular Pirates of the Caribbean saga. The series has a generous budget in production and special effects, but the key is in the characters, who awaken in the viewer a healthy complicity. Both heroes and villains have a point of universal charm, which makes the series a success among a wide variety of audiences of different ages and geographic latitudes. An entertainment without ideological notes that sails at full sail throughout the season.
