Watch this show right now:

Featuring stunning visuals and unapologetic gore, "A Killer Paradox" offers a truly unique viewing experience from beginning to end. While it may not flawlessly execute all its ideas, the series remains compelling throughout its 8 episodes. Anchored by stellar performances from Choi Woo-shik, Son Suk-ku, and Lee Hee-joon, "A Killer Paradox" is one show that should linger in the minds of viewers days and weeks after its release.

The narrative follows Lee Tang (Choi Woo-shik), whose life takes a drastic turn when he accidentally kills someone while walking home. Initially, the act doesn't sit well with Lee, but he soon discovers that his victim was a notorious serial killer. As Lee grapples with this revelation, he begins to believe he possesses a unique ability to discern the true nature of those he encounters randomly. This newfound conviction drives him to become a vigilante, targeting individuals harboring dark and sinister secrets. However, his actions do not escape the notice of detective Jang Nan-gam (Son Suk-ku), who is hot on his trail believing that true justice must go through the police and the courts.

Some viewers may find "A Killer Paradox" diverges from their expectations as they go deeper through its intricacies but the initial premise feels somewhat familiar. Jn fact, the concept of a murderer transforming into a hero has been explored in other shows. Yet, "A Killer Paradox" injects a supernatural and mystical twist that should catch audiences off guard. While this departure from realism may deter some, it enriches the series with deeper and more intriguing narrative layers. Despite its brilliance, the series' brevity —spanning only eight episode s—leaves much to be desired. Unlike typical lengthy formats, "A Killer Paradox" leaves us longing for more, particularly on Lee Tang's "superpower" and its origins. The show's failure to fully explore its characters and ideas diminishes the impact of its overarching themes. Nevertheless, "A Killer Paradox" remains a captivating watch. With its intricate plot, unexpected twists, and knack for shocking audiences, it stands out as a must-watch on Netflix.

Rating: 3 and a half reels
