Review - The Rig


📺 The Rig (2023)

Started watching this today. Netflix binging and a 6 episode format make it hard to sustain the tension thats needed for this kind of closed-in, intimate suspense / psychological shows to fully work. The oil rig setting is unusual, and thankfully the producers didnt fall for the “lets get spectacular” trap, but again, it feels like it could do more if it was less diluted. It still is enjoyable so far, and im happy to be surprised by the ending.
