Thanks to Roadshow Home Entertainment we had a look at the second season of Da Vinci’s Demons on DVD.
The maestro returns once again to amaze viewers around the world in a series packed full of inventions and plot twists. The story follows Da Vinci’s quest to find the Book of Leaves and his mother, a journey that this time will force him to create alliances with his former nemesis and to travel to a mysterious new land where his destiny will change forever.
Season 2 finds the superb Tom Riley once again stealing the spotlight with his mad genius portrayal of Da Vinci, but this time in a more physically demanding way while exploring new lands, a land that is today known as Machu-Pichu in South America. All the while Lorenzo Medicci struggles to create new alliances to recover his country, getting tortured and humiliated in pursuit of his goal.
The cinematography and special effects are flawless and the entire cast have time to shine. However, what makes this tv series a hit and instant classic is the cleverly made plot by David S. Goyer with a mix of historic facts and fantasy.
Da Vinci’s Demons Season 2 is now available on DVD in Australia.
