What is the story about?

The popular Spanish heist series takes off where the Season 5 Part 1 ended. Professor and Alicia face a moral dilemma and both will stop at nothing to finish their missions. The team is now facing their worst phase ever as the Professor is busted and they are all stuck in the Bank Of Spain. 

Analysis

A lot of fans were divided over the makers splitting the final season of Money Heist into two seasons. However, we can safely assume that the gamble worked and how. A lot of popular shows over the years have suffered from the 'letdown climax' syndrome, for lack of a better word, but Money Heist proves this theory wrong. Money Heist's final outing keeps you to the edge of your seat till the very end. We spent four years with Professor and his entourage of safe-crackers who jumped from one heist to another. The final chapter proves to be an emotional roller-coaster for a lot of fans, because a lot of questions are answered and a lot of loose ends are tied. We also finally get a chance to see Berlin's plan and every character's storyline is wrapped up in a way that the loyal fans would like. Even the story surrounding Tokyo's death is given a satisfactory ending. 

Performances

Performances by the cast have always been a strongpoint of the show. The star cast comprising of Úrsula Corberó, Álvaro Morte, Itziar Ituño, Pedro Alonso, Miguel Herrán, Jaime Lorente, Alba Flores, Darko Peric, Esther Acebo, Itziar Ituño, Belén Cuesta, Najwa Nimri etc. have outperformed themselves and played an exemplary part in making the show one of the most watched and loved shows in the world. 

Music & Other Departments

The direction by Jesús Colmenar and Koldo Serra is commendable as it is quite an uphill task to keep audiences engaged in the series for the past couple of years. The writers too churned out an excellent fast-paced script in the series's finale. The final episodes have a lot of character development and are filled with various twists and turns. The climax too ia shot and written thereby giving the series a perfect closure. 

Highlights

  • The finale had the perfect length
  • All the loose ends tied and every characters gets a closure

Drawbacks

None.

Did I enjoy it?

I loved it. Can't wait to see more versions and adaptations of Money Heist. 

Do I recommend it?

Yes. Watch it as the holidays are just around the corner and this series is best when binged all at once.
