The Amazon Prime Video series has been a box of surprises until the last minute. Between the real and imagined facts, and always walking in that fine line between the offensive and the great, ‘ Hunters ‘ stands out as a vindictive fantasy full of chiaroscuro.
The Amazon Prime Video series has taken us through ten long episodes full of winks to real characters and events while building its own story in a kind of alternative dimension in which a group of Jews gave justice to those Nazis who managed to remake their lives without consequences after the crimes of the Second World War.
Produced by Jordan Peele (‘ Let me out’), is a story that seeks responsibilities, adjustment of accounts and bloody redemption, while looking sideways at Quentin Tarantino’s cinema. And the end has lived up to its madness, for better or for worse.
Not one, but two great narrative twists have happened in the last episodes of the series, which puts all the meat on the grill for a second season that, it seems, will turn the game around.hunters
In ‘Hunters’ we meet the millionaire Meyer Offerman ( Al Pacino ), a Jewish survivor who brings together a team formed by the frustrated actor Lonny Flash ( Josh Radnor ), the representative of the blaxploitation Roxy Jones ( Tiffany Boone ), the tormented veteran of Vietnam Joe Torrance ( Louis Ozawa ), the mysterious and unforgiving nun Sister Harriet ( Kate Mulvany ) and the surviving marriage from the Nazi concentration camps Mindy ( Carol Kane ) and Murray ( Saul Rubinek) with a clear objective: to locate the Nazis who settled placidly in the United States after the end of the war and to arrest those who are organizing in the shadows to establish a Fourth Reich in their country.
They are joined by rookie Jonah Heidelbaum ( Logan Lerman ) after the murder of his grandmother Ruth ( Jeannie Berlin ), who, far from that tender figure The first (which, more than a surprise, is a reminder) is called Operation Paperclip, and it is one of the real details that the series offers us she intended to pursue consciously that they have a common enemy, she learns that the government American allowed Nazis into the country after the war.
