Money Heist Season 5 Review: Is It Worth Watching?
Money Heist Season 5 Review: Eight cheats take prisoners and lock themselves in the Royal Mint of Spain as a
criminal brains controls the police to complete his arrangement.
The Story of Money Heist
Based on the Spanish series by Roberto Galán, The Story of Money Heist centers on three unlikely, yet like-minded men – Spaniard Juan – who steal from a country’s central bank, whilst other people on the run are making decisions based on their clues. This is how the two-part season, until the finale, unfolds. As the viewers know, Money Heist is based on one of Spain’s most famous cases of high security bank robbery – ‘The Bank Heist’. The criminals steals €45 million from the Spanish bank, La Fortaleza. Their choice of route of operation is no normal heist. The team breaks in the bank, seals themselves in the vault and eat through a safe. Their getaway plan is no rocket science either. They build a cable car system from a helicopter. A perfect escape.
What’s So Special about Netflix’s Money Heist?
Netflix’s newest original series Money Heist is really good and you should watch it immediately. But will you be willing to sit down and watch every episode of this wonderfully cynical and outrageously funny show? It turns out there’s more to this saga than meets the eye and it is better for it. Created by Antena 3, a Spanish public television network, the show tells the story of a Spanish magistrate (played by Adrián Suar) investigating a bank heist that leads him down an ugly trail that will ultimately be complicated by the people of Tarragona, the city in which the robbery took place. Money Heist, then, tells the story of what happens when the drama that unfolds during the course of a heist is replayed on screen by the same people.
Who’s the Cast of Money Heist?
The roster of stars in the show is quite impressive. It has one of the most innovative narratives on television with twists and turns that will keep you guessing. The main characters of the show include Ray “Chivo” Cruz, Szymon “El Genio” Kryczka, Kike “Fidel” Blanco, Jorge “Nato” Casas, Imanol Arias, Pablo “El Cazador” Jimenez, Álvaro Cuesta, and Paco “Paco” Mendoza. The rest of the cast includes Monica Ros, Sanna “La Tostada” Silva, Diego García Molina, Dorina Mateos, Alfredo del Toro, Esther Bertrand, David “El Niño” Lopez, Rosa Isabel Rodríguez, Álvaro Robles, María Palomo, María Fernanda Ruiz, Guillermo Álvarez, Patricia Puente, Daniel Barbachano, Eduardo Novo and Jesús “J” Padilla.
Why it is Important?
Money Heist became a huge Netflix hit thanks to two main things: it was an addictive, thoroughly original series that cleverly employed a fresh format to great success; and the main character, the person behind all of the actions, the criminal mastermind Arturo Olea (Diego López), is very charming. As Money Heist Season 5 begins, Spain is in shambles after the season-long criminal op. Over 2 million people have been arrested, most of them falsely accused for crimes they did not commit. Olea’s plan backfired, and all that remains is for him to either release himself or wait out the endgame. This season, Olea has to find a way to make it out alive.
As the episode ended, Pedro finds out the real twist of the whole show, which makes the last two minutes of
the season ten ending very dramatic. I wonder what the point of the series is, maybe it was meant to be
a psychological experiment, a wish fulfillment, a document of this eureka moment when everything
was laid bare, all that went to be the story of what one day can become,
like any previous best selling art-house story ever. What I mean is that the “To Catch A Thief” ending
was a sign of the possible trajectory of
life, but usually in the end of the film, which puts things together, someone has stole
the diamond and the lives can go back to normal. In “Money Heist,” it was the opposite, as the end
revealed that the ending was the beginning.
