DVD Review: Wentworth Season 2
I missed out on Wentworth Season 1, because I didn’t think that a remake of Aussie cult classic Prisoner would really have that much to offer. But then one night I was bored a browsing the OnDemand options and stumbled on Wentworth, decided to give it a go, and was fairly impressed. So when Season Two arrived on DVD I grabbed a copy.
Wentworth Season 2 starts with a bang and ends with jaw dropping conclusion that will leave you anticipating the next season. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t seen season one and you pick up things quickly. Whilst there are a few clichés in the series, Wentworth is a well written series with great acting by its Australian cast. The characters are varied and work off each other, providing a nice little community that may not be your typical prisomn life, but works well for an engrossing TV show. There are plenty of power-struggles, and the show pulls no punches when it comes to the drama, action and twists. It’s violent, sexy, heart warming, painful, and it’s very, very entertaining.
Rating: R16 Graphic violence, sexual violence, offensive language, drug use, sex scenes and content that may disturb.
