Austin Burke Reviews The Liberator

In the uniquely animated limited series The Liberator (2020), U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks and his unit fight for more than 500 days in Nazi occupied Europe. Created and written by Jeb Stuart, the series is based on the book The Liberator: One World War II Soldier’s 500-Day Odyssey by author Alex Kershaw and stars Bradley James, Jose Miguel Vasquez and Martin Sensmeier to name a few. YouTuber Austin Burke shares his thoughts on the war drama now streaming on Netflix.

There is a bit of a disconnect between the characters and myself in this show … yes certain lines of dialogue were a bit over the top. They’re kind of spouting out one liners all through this show and I wasn’t a huge fan of some of the conversations … I was eventually won over by a few of these really just chilling scenes describing and portraying what happens to these soldiers because I am a sucker for a war movie or TV show.

The Liberator is the first show or film to be done in this new type of animation style called trioscope technology, which is a blend of 3D CGI, live action footage, and traditional 2D animation to create the look of an animated 3D graphic novel. A very unique and different style that takes a bit of getting used to says Burke, who has a slightly difficult time adjusting at first.

However, by the end of the series, the overall story and plotline of a group of American cowboys, Mexican-Americans, and Native-Americans, who wouldn’t normally share a drink together, coming together and fighting for freedom and injustice trumps the adjustment of watching the series in this new animation style.
