Altered Carbon imagines a world in which humans have achieved a form of immortality — for a price. In the Netflix’s costly adaptation of Richard K. Morgan‘s 2002 novel, Altered Carbon depicts the world 300 years in the future in which human consciousness can be uploaded into new bodies, allowing people (mainly the rich) to essentially live forever.
But the technology doesn’t come without its detractors. The world sees a rise in murders, which kicks off our central murder mystery. And who better to solve that murder mystery than Joel Kinnaman, that guy that you sorta, kinda remember from Suicide Squad?
