12. Altered Carbon: Resleeved

Science fiction is a limitless genre with endless possibilities, and the stories that come out of it are out of this world, especially some of the titles Netflix has to offer. One great example is the TV series Altered Carbon. The live-action adaptation of the 2002 novel of the same name was a cyberpunk thrill ride jam-packed with sci-fi action and a killer storyline. In the distant future, technology allows people to extend their life by being reuploaded into different bodies or sleeves, as they are called in the narrative. This visually stunning affair didn’t stop there as the streaming service kept the franchise going with an Anime prequel film Altered Carbon: Resleeved, that follows the main character of the show, Takeshi Kovacs, 253 years before the events of the first season.

Altered Carbon: Resleeved sees Kovacs reawakened on the planet Latimer whew he is given a death-defying task that nobody else would ever take. The former soldier and last Envoy must investigate a Yakuza boss’s death while also protecting a tattoo artist named Holly. Luckily he has his strangely familiar and very no-nonsense CTAC agent Gina to assist him in this perilous endeavor. Fans of excellent science fiction Anime and the Netflix series will most certainly want to check this one out if they were not fortunate enough to catch it when it first arrived on the streaming service.
