A sci-fi drama based on the Richard K. Morgan novel of the same name.


300 years from now, society has been transformed by technology in completely new ways. Human bodies are interchangeable and consciousness can be digitized and transferred from body to body, making death a temporary inconvenience.

Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an immensely-wealthy and long-lived man, offers him the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve the murder of Bancroft himself.

As a fan of the book, I'm already disappointed in the character changes so far. I can only hope they didn't butcher the main plot too badly. As for monk_juice; it's an original work by Morgan that is pretty good. I wouldn't call it a masterpiece of literature, but it has a few new ideas and is decent for some "fun" reading.

Bladerunner or Judge Dredd knockoff?

Purefoy's in it so I will definitely give this a chance
