What makes special mr robot?


First, the story of its protagonist Elliot, who by day is a computer engineer and by night is a black hat hacker who uses his skills to “do good.” It is he who narrates his experiences, in addition to breaking the wall that divides the viewers of the feature film, since in one way or another he talks to them. Young Alderson turns the audience into his “imaginary friend” and makes them part of his existence. His relationship with the public evolves throughout the series; it is almost as if the spectators were a character within it.

Second, another of his pluses is the co-star, Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), who invites Elliot to be part of his team of hackers to carry out the plan to destroy one of the largest conglomerates and thus redistribute wealth worldwide. A character who keeps a great secret.

Third, mr robot It is a story that plays with the minds of viewers because fiction, despite being a television series, has the aesthetics of a movie. For example, misaligned frames convey what your characters are feeling on stage. In the same way it does it with colors, sometimes desaturated and dark, and other times very bright.

As a fourth reason, mr robot is a series full of criticism of today’s society, in which the use of technology and social networks has gotten out of control. A society governed by large corporations that destroy the planet, individuality and little by little even freedom. Likewise, it touches on other relevant topics such as depression, autism, addiction, mental illness, abuse, manipulation, etc. All this to give us a masterpiece.
