Am kommenden Freitag erscheint bei Netflix endlich die Live-Action-Adaption der Kult-Animeserie Cowboy Bebop. Stylische Trailer eilten der Produktionen in den letzten Wochen voraus, doch nun trudeln langsam die ersten Meinungen zur Cowboy Bebop-Serie aus Fleisch und Blut herein und die fallen leider eher enttäuschend aus (siehe unten), auch wenn es durchaus positive Stimmen gibt.
Netflix's Cowboy Bebop sadly doesn't "jam." It's not bad because it disrespects the anime or whatever (it's very reverent), it just meanders for most of its artificially prolonged length before fumbling at the end. The cast is terrific! They're just wasted in subpar direction. pic.twitter.com/dwNKQP9Noj
i've been a Cowboy Bebop super-fan since the day i found the first DVD in the back of a Sam Goody in 1998, so i volunteered to review Netflix's live-action adaptation for IndieWire. …that was a grave mistake. (reviews drop monday, save yourselves)
Now that the social embargo is up: I regret to inform you that new #CowboyBebop is just as bad as you'd feared - a limp, low-budget retread of images and characters and gestures the anime simply does better. And nothing new is gleaned from the reinterpretation.

Ok NOW I can actually day that I did not enjoy #CowboyBebop. It makes the mistake of being a mostly verbatim adaptation, which obviously pales in comparison to the anime, but worse yet, it simply looks so cheap. The editing, the visuals, most of the acting is just off.
At it's best, Netflix's #CowboyBebop is stylistically beautifully, energetic and faithful to the original series, while still adding more to the story and characters. But at it's worst, it's a parody of itself. pic.twitter.com/NGCbJ5Pnpn
#CowboyBebop wird spalten. Ich hatte die meiste Zeit Spaß an dem wilden Style, den Genre-Wechseln und den endlosen Anime-Verweisen. John Cho und Daniella Pineda als Spike und Faye sind ein Highlight. Aber stellenweise gerät die Netflix-Adaption doch ziemlich aus dem Takt. pic.twitter.com/0Ujtmp7B5v
I've seen it, and it's awesome. Best anime adaptation we've likely ever seen. I won't say it's perfect, but it's a helluva lot of fun. At least 7 out of the 10 episodes are really solid. Don't expect a full 1:1 recreation. Review Monday pic.twitter.com/WVTaNGx5VO
Netflix's #CowboyBebop is a triumph, the only good live-action anime adaptation. I'll have deeper thoughts soon, but this is a show you simply cannot afford to miss. Cho, Pineda and Shakir are superb, as is Hassell. Also, Ein is as adorable as you would hope. pic.twitter.com/XEU6AAZgmc
Listen y'all, Cowboy Bebop is a FREAKING BLAST. As a fan of the anime, I am VERY happy with the live action version. So much of this show is the one fans know and love, but it does it's own thing too. The action, costumes, and cast are AMAZING. 3, 2, 1, Let's JAM! #CowboyBeboppic.twitter.com/aMF0WfkbaF
