Ο Al Pacino είναι με διαφορά ένας από τους καλύτερους ηθοποιούς του Χόλιγουντ και μπορεί να τον έχουμε συνηθίσει στην μεγάλη οθόνη, ωστόσο θα πρωταγωνιστήσει στην σειρά της Amazon, Hunters που έχει διχάσει κοινό (68% Rotten Tomatoes και 7.2 στο IMDB) και κυρίως κριτικούς, όπως θα δείτε παρακάτω:

 

The Guardian

It’s too cool and self-conscious for its own good, and seems to revel in any and all deaths on screen, regardless of whether the victims are ‘guilty’ or not. . . . 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.

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.

Forbes

The show often doesn’t seem aware of what it wants to be. It might be campy, pulpy, even absurdist at times, while taking a misaimed stab at drama at others, and being nauseatingly violent throughout.

Vox

Hunters’ scenes of implausible revenge seem teleported in from an unbelievable fever dream of over-the-top Nazi sadism and Jewish heroics – and thanks to the overly saturated color palette, they often look that way, too.

The Atlantic

What’s most maddening about Hunters is that much of it works in individual pieces, even though the whole is a sweaty, overseasoned smorgasbord.

Salon

Such viewers may appreciate the jauntily presented violence and frequent tributes to (or, depending on one’s mood, rip-offs of) Quentin Tarantino. Those moments come off precisely as you’d expect of a series that literally has a nun, a Vietnam vet, four Jewish folks, a Black revolutionary, and a guy played by Ted from How I Met Your Mother delivering payback to Third Reich officers who tortured people in concentration camps. It’s ridiculous, satisfying, jaw-droppingly savage, and oddly pleasurable, often all at the same time.

Hindustan Times

Jonah is essentially Luke Skywalker and Meyer is Obi Wan; the neo-Nazi is Kylo Ren. The proposed Fourth Reich is the First Order, and Hunters is, regardless of its iffy ethics, Star Wars with the SS.

Entertainment Voice

At times it can seem like the plot is being stretched out too much for TV length, but there are worthy ideas and themes here. The show goes down various avenues, sometimes all at once, but they are engaging. Blunt times call for blunt stories – and this story is interested in making blunt impacts in every single direction.

Η τηλεοπτική σειρά έχει 10 επεισόδια και εξελίσσεται στο 1977 όπου μία ομάδα επίλεκτων «κυνηγών», ανακαλύπτει ότι εκατοντάδες υψηλόβαθμοι ναζί έχουν επιβιώσει και οργανώνουν την αντεπίθεση τους.

Παραγωγός είναι ο Jordan Peele, το σενάριο είναι από τον David Weil, ενώ πρωταγωνιστούν εκτός από τον Al Pacino οι Logan Lerman, Jerrika Hinton, Dylan Baker, Lena Olin, Greg Austin, Catherine Tate, Tiffany Boone, Saul Rubinek, Carol Kane.
