Hunters: Season 1 / Reviews

Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone

Logan Lerman is the show's actual lead, and holds his own against his older co-stars. Still, the degree to which any of this cartoonish mayhem feels real is largely a credit to the gravity Pacino provides in certain moments.

Hollywood Reporter

Hollywood Reporter

There's a lot of discomfort to Hunters, as it goes from action scenes so alive and full of verve that they can only be classified as "fun" to a nightmarish Holocaust sequence. That discomfort is intentional, but it isn't always illuminating.

Its nastiness, even as deployed against the world's worst people, fugitives from justice, somehow comes to feel more like abuse of the audience.

The New York Times

It never quite gets the blend of dramatic intensity, comic-book embroidery and cathartic action that it seems to be going for. "Hunters," like the hunters team itself, is less than the sum of its parts.

The Guardian

Hunters' part-pulp sensibility frequently veers into hamminess - and that's on top of the discomfort arising from taking this approach to a historical trauma the size, weight and fathomless depth of the Holocaust.

Everything about this series says superhero movie, from its popping bright colours to its improbably high body count. Like most superhero films, it feels heavily stylised without being remotely nice to look at.

It powerfully brings home not only what Jewish people have suffered, but what they, and other minorities in the West, could suffer again.

The Age

The Age

A bold attempt to honor the victims without being bound by factual accuracy, so as to bring the past to life for a generation that might otherwise be inured to it. It's a risky game, fraught with contradictions. But it makes Hunters a fascinating watch.

Directed with some stylistic flamboyance by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, his cameras in the hands of veteran cinematographer Frederick Elmes rarely still, and he hits perfect pitch at the story's crucial turning points with his unusual angles and surprising moves
