All in all, Mirage was a well thought out story that had many layers. It had a complex plot but it was simplified in a way that helped the audiences understand what was going on unlike some films that thrive on the confusion of the viewers. There were rootable characters whose motivations were clear from the beginning. As such, it delivered a satisfying conclusion to a story that spanned 25 years to complete .

All in all, I was a bigger fan of the idea than the actual Black Mirror special. Judging by Black Mirror standards, it was quite consistent with the thought provoking theme of the series but it didn’t have as much impact as its predecessors. Still, as the first of its kind interactive streaming episode, it was solid enough to spawn a follow up. However, I can’t count myself as a fan of this type of set up just yet because it definitely takes time to get used to. I would have to wait until it grows on me.
