The life of a group of Nazis hunters, who live in New York during the period of 1970, when they are shocked by finding out that a group of Nazis officials plan for making another Fourth Reich in New York, has been changed completely, as they go in a dangerous mission to bring them to justice.
"Hunters" lives in a state of emergency, which necessitates action more than it mirrors reality. It's an effective, fictionalized premise, but one that's also dependent on the viewer being able to enjoy a particularly harsh blend of fact and fiction.
In a weird way, Hunters feels like an unintentional echo of HBO's Watchmen -- It remains to be seen if Hunters will capture the same kind of heartbreaking nuance and current relevance as that series did last fall.
Hunters is such an enticing premise as to overcome its execution problems, at least for a while. But the tone of this Amazon series varies wildly, leaving behind a show that isn't bad, but which really should be a whole lot better.
[T]he show is audacious, tonally complex, not always in control of its message, visually arresting, and, particularly in its grim flashbacks to the brutalities and the courage in the death camps, moving.
