Episode 1

In the summer of 1977, Jonah Heidelbaum's grandmother (a holocaust survivor) is murdered in her own living room. In an attempt to find her killer, Jonah is approached by Meyer Offerman, an old friend of his grandmother's, who reveals to Jonah that America has been infiltrated at all levels by renegade Nazis and it was they who were responsible for her death. Once the truth is revealed to him (as well as some surprising facts about his grandmother's life), Jonah is recruited into a secret organization determined to root out the Nazi infiltrators wherever they are.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
