Netflix’s The Witcher: Blood Origin Is Getting Review Bombed



Netflix's The Witcher: Blood Origin has already felt the wrath of the online community over on Rotten Tomatoes.

In less than a week, the prequel to Netflix's highly acclaimed The Witcher series has already felt the thunder from both die-hard CD Projekt fans and movie critics alike, with the average score putting Blood Origin down as a pretty underwhelming 35%. Going by this, the prequel is now the lowest ranking entry in the entire saga, with The Witcher continuing to hold the fort with an admirable 81%.

Of course, this isn't to say Blood Origin is a poor entry to an otherwise phenomenal saga. In fact, some critics have praised the four-part series for its overall theme and attempt to reignite a universally acclaimed universe. The general consensus on it, though, is that it's a pretty forgettable experience that shares very little in common with the world fans of the video games have all come to know and adore.

Still, reviews can change. At the time of writing, Rotten Tomatoes isn't acting all that friendly towards Netflix's latest adaptation. But should another batch of episodes step up to redeem the first of all its downfalls, then hey, perhaps there's hope for it yet.
