9/10 - swoo
Not necessary to have played the games but this fills in the blanks on character back story and motivation and the story structure mirrors the gameplay organically, told like a road trip/buddy cop on one side with a very sympathetic opponent.

9/10 - Magic Mike
Watched the first season before the second came out and enjoyed it but thought it was a bit short. Ended up binge watching the second season over a few days and thought it really completed things well. The animation didn't shy away from blood and gore but also didn't overdo it. Was expecting another bad video game adaptation with poor writing but the writing by Warren Ellis felt really solid and grounded.
