Review: The story would have breathed in ‘Keep Breathing’ if the plot didn’t conflict

Review ‘Keep Breathing’: “Cast Away” starring Tom Hanks has been ranked highest among the world’s best survival drama films. Tom falls into the ocean when an airplane crashes and ends up on an island. Not a single human lives in the whole island. Tom lives and lives alone on that island for four years. The story of Cast Away is such a document of these 4 years, in which loneliness, solitude, a person longing to talk to someone who has to depend on that island for food and the vast sea spread in front, is depicted.

He paints football with his blood, makes a face on it and keeps talking to him considering him as his friend. Survival means this struggle of life is some innocent and some very heart-wrenching. Cast Away was released in the year 2000. After 22 years, a survival drama series “Keep Breathing” has been released on Netflix, whose original story is similar to Cast Away but its script is so rubbish that after watching it the audience can think of themselves as survivors. Although there is a mini-series of only 6 episodes, it is better to watch Cast Away one more time than to waste time watching it.

Liv (Melissa Barrera) is a fastidious lawyer who has to go to trial with some important papers. She boarded a small plane in which there is no pilot, co-pilot and other than her. The plane crashes due to a technical fault. As Liv and co-pilot Sam (Austin Stowell) reach an island, the pilot is trapped in the seat and dies inside the plane after drowning. After some time Sam also dies.

After this, Liv has to live on that island, understand the island and find a way out. The story is awesome, but the screenplay strangles the story. Every effort Liv tries to get out of there, they hide somewhere, but Liv’s ever-changing relationship with her mother, her father, and her boyfriend, through flashbacks, enters the story and the story of Luv’s survival. gets swallowed up. After a while, it looks like the flashback scenes will give Liv some way to survive on this island, but alas, nothing like that happens. The truth is that some flashback scenes are seen forcibly inserted.

Melissa Barrera is a Mexican actress and she has appeared in many TV series but her role in this web series has been composed without any understanding. She is a lawyer, but under water, she holds her breath for a long time like a skilled diver, trying to save her pilot and co-pilot. She burns thousands of dollar notes with the help of glass to light a fire on the island. It is another matter that he has a lighter which could have been used again if it had been dried. Why did you burn all the notes? She is not able to catch fish to eat in the forest, but she eats wild berries with great pleasure, while it is very difficult to find out which berry is not poisonous.

As long as she lives in the forest, she does not have any disease which is almost impossible. There is only one bear on the island that attacks co-pilot Sam. Sam is already injured but Liv screams from afar and drives the bear away. That bear is not seen again in the entire series, no other animal is far away. When Sam dies, she alone buries Sam in a pit and not even once does she think to check Sam’s pocket. Sam has a nice jacket which might have come in handy in the cold but Liv doesn’t take it off either. There are so many flashback scenes in this script full of dozens of idiots that if you fast forward them and watch only the survival scenes, then everything ends in one episode. Don’t know what writers Ituri Sosa, Brendan Gaul, and Martin Gero of the troupe thought wrote it. Best of all, Liv’s makeup is not bad at all.

After a long climb, Liv reaches a place where there is a high-flowing river, Liv jumps into it (she doesn’t get hurt, doesn’t hit a stone) and in the next 15-20 seconds two people hit her. They come out of the river and bring them to the shore and she is saved. Series over. As a viewer, you feel so cheated that maybe something happens in Liv’s life after this, there is a change, or she has changed her mind, you haven’t even bothered to show it. The strange way the series has ended, the more strange the head feels about hitting the wall. In the survival drama, suffering, pain, troubles, physical and mental suffering, food juggling, struggle to store clean potable water and not knowing what happens. But everything is missing in Keep Breathing. You too should be missing by not being its spectator. is a waste of time.
