Netflix viewers can’t get enough of new detective thriller with perfect 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

Netflix viewers can’t get enough of new detective thriller with perfect 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

It's perfect, critics say

Every so often a new show drops that's an instant banger; just look at one of the latest shows to land on Netflix.

Okay, we all know reviews aren't everything. What a critic thinks is good might not necessarily translate to the general audience.

Just take a look at Tom Hardy's Venom and it's 30% rating with critics compared to the general audience's far more favourable 80%.

Choi Woo-sik stars.

And flip it, with the likes of Seth Rogen's Sausage Party hitting a 82% score with Rotten Tomatoes but just 50% with the general viewer.

But when something scores a solid 10/10 by those whose job it is to review films, you can't help but think it might be worth a watch - whether you agree or not.

That's certainly the case for one of Netflix's newest shows that has landed this month - spoilers ahead!

The Korean series focuses on an army veteran who has struggled since being discharged from the military.

Working at a convenience store and relying on his family for financial support, he is assaulted by a customer one evening while on shift.

The incident turns extremely sour, with a murder taking place.

The twist?

Son Suk-ku in the 100% rated show.

The man killed is a serial killer and soon discovers he has a hidden talent for identifying evil people before killing them, with police hot on the veteran's tail. The vibes are very Dexter, that's for sure.

Choi Woo-shik stars as Lee Tang, the military veteran behind the accidental killing.

He's joined by Son Sok-ku as Jang Nan-gam, a detective pursuing the murder case committed by Tang.

There's also Song Chon, played by Lee Hee-joon, a former detective also on Tang's trail.

The series, released to Netflix on 9 February, is entitled A Killer Paradox. It's also known as Murder DIEry.

Watch the trailer for the show below:

Over on Rotten Tomatoes, A Killer Paradox scores a perfect 100% with critics since debuting.

David Opie, from the Radio Times, said: "A tighter focus and keener sense of the message behind this conceit could have elevated the series more. But there's still tons of fun to be had when it comes to Killer's sheer ambition, not to mention the wish fulfilment of it all."

Kate Sanchez, of But Why Tho? A Geek Community, wrote: "Darkly humorous, violent, and never boring, A Killer Paradox is a morality thriller like no other.

"What begins as a comedy of errors and morphs into a deep detective thriller, it’s one of the finest series on Netflix."

Audience scores for the film aren't quite as favourable, but at 75% they're still where you want them to be if you're going to dedicate your time to watching eight episodes with a run time of 45 to 63 minutes.

One viewer said: "Love the dark humour and acting is refresh also it it great to see other location instead of the usually."

A second wrote: "Well-worth watching. The series is several steps above the usual soulless killer-who-kills-killers series or movie.

"The story is quite unique once you learn of the characters special powers, and there are back stories for several of the additional characters beyond the lead help to really draw you in."

A Killer Paradox can be streamed on Netflix now.
