The Sandman is a Netflix adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s comic books.
Sandman Movie Serias a Dark comic book adaption suffers from shoddy dialogue and superficial psychological investigation.
In spite of being immortal and ageless, even the Sandman recognizes the three decades it has taken to get him to the big screen.
Attempts to adapt Neil Gaiman’s dark fantasy comic book “Sandman” series into a film have taken place at least three times since 1991, when he was first approached about it.
With Gaiman’s help, Netflix has decided to present The Sandman as a 10-part series.
It’s a disappointment, especially after such a protracted gestation time.
Alternatively, it could be tedious.
Gaiman’s best-selling graphic novel masterpiece was hailed by many as the first crossover between comic books and literary fiction; this version is dismal and intellectually vapid.

He’s been stripped of his talismans (a ruby, a helmet, and a bag of sand), and unless he gives his captor a miraculous gift, he’ll be held prisoner.
Since he’s not a negotiator, he’s sentenced to a century of silence.
Even though his kingdom is in ruins after he returns, Dream swears to rebuild it as soon as he can locate all of his personal belongings.
Exorcist (Jenna Coleman), Lucifer (Gwendoline Christie), and wisecracking ravens are just some of the strange characters who make up the scavenger hunt (voiced by Patton Oswalt).
After a few episodes, new characters and subplots are introduced, but there isn’t much that seems developed, in part because the dialogue is primarily limited to functional assertions, in which characters announce who they are, what they desire, or what they intend to accomplish.
Allusions to the unconscious or the importance of dreams, on the other hand, are devoid of psychiatric investigation.
