The Sci-Fi genre is alive and well. 21 days after Netflix released Altered Carbon, the streaming service offered another neo-noir, cyberpunk original featuring a hot Swede as the lead. Alexander Skarsgard is the main character in this Duncan Jones film, about a mute bartender who lost his voice due to an accident when he was little.
