Netflix Review: ‘Who Killed Sara?’ Is a Tense Murder Mystery That’s Just Getting Started

Disclaimer: This review is based on the first four episodes that I was given screeners to ahead of its March 24th release date

Are you a fan of murder mysteries? Did you enjoy shows like Narcos and Narcos: Mexico? Then you should definitely check out Who Killed Sara? on Netflix. This intense drama has the production value of the aforementioned shows and is a tense thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Who Killed Sara? Was it someone obvious? Or someone completely unexpected? The show is holding that answer close to the chest – you’ll have to watch to find out.

What’s It About

Who Killed Sara? stars Manolo Cardona (who played Eduardo Sandoval in the first two seasons of Narcos) as Alex, a man wrongfully convicted for the death of his sister Sara. After 18 years behind bars, Alex is released from prison and looks to finally solve the mystery that’s haunted him for most of his life. The problem is, the secret to Sara’s death is shrouded by a corrupt family – led by the tough Cesar Lazcano (Ginés García Millán). Alex’s only ally in this mission is a mysterious “Good Samaritan” and the youngest Lazcano sibling – Elisa (Carolina Miranda).

Anyone Could Be The Killer

To me, everyone feels suspicious. The Lazcano parents, all of the Lazcano siblings, and anyone on-screen feels as if they could have had something to do with this crime. In a way, the show feels like ABC’s Revenge – a well-done drama that’s full of lies and deceit. As you go through the show, you’re provided with perfectly placed flashbacks. Ones that give you insight into the key players in this story. The real question is – why was Sara killed? What was it about her that someone felt warranted killing her? I’m not sure, but I can’t wait to find out.

Rating: 4.5/5

The actors are doing a great job in their roles. Manolo plays the brooding and clever lead very well here. If Narcos is the only thing you’ve seen him in, you’re used to him having a small recurring role in a bigger story. Here, though; he’s front and center and you want to go along this ride with him. Millán plays a very convincing dislikeable patriarch and Miranda is great as the crafty younger sibling. Alejandro Nones does a great job in portraying the ver-conflicted Rodolfo. And Eugenio Siller does really well in keeping Chema’s true intentions a secret.

Who Killed Sara? hits Netflix on March 24th and I HIGHLY recommend it!
