Bollywood Crazies Opinion: The story is good so far and the screenplay works perfectly for me. In the first few episodes, we majorly seen the emotional side of the characters and the world they are into. The dialogues are good and I liked the very first scene where Cruz is being questioned by a Marine official before recruiting. Though, the start of this series is full of fire and heavy duty action, just to give us a glimpse of the the scale of this show. The cinematography adds value to the story and makes it real and believable. Many of you have seen such espionage stories in the past too but this is majorly focuses on the women and so it might work for some and not for others. Talking about the performances, I couldn’t keep my eyes away from Laysla as she nailed in her performance and she is the soul of the show. Apart from that Joe is a strong female character, who balances both her personal and professional life and so far she is good. Well, the story is highly emotional and that makes me going on for this series. I so far enjoyed it and recommend others to have a watch on it. The production value is good and the action scenes were just made for a big screen experience. None the less, Special Ops Lioness is surely a thing to binge watch every week. The background music is also ok which is going well with the story flow.

This series has been created and written by Taylor Sheridan. It has been directed by John Hillcoat. The series have been produced by Jill Wagner, David Glasser, David Hutkin, Bob Yari, Zoe Saldana, Nicole Kidman and Geyer Kosinski. The musical score has been given by Andrew Lockington. It have been edited by Chad Galster, Ace Conor O’Neill. The Cinematography has been done by Paul Cameron ASC.

Altogether, Special Ops Lioness is a good watch and I would surely recommend it to you. I think, it is pretty early to say but the series might not worked for the audience as they have seen such webseries in the past too.

Last Word: Watch it for the performance of Laysla.
