Yes. Every Murder is Personal

Logan Lerman (Fury) apparently likes hassling Nazis. The new trailer for Hunters on Amazon Prime shows us just how much.

Hello Goober

From the trades:

Inspired by true events, HUNTERS follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters in 1977 New York City who discover that hundreds of escaped Nazis are living in America. And so, they do what any bad-ass vigilante squad would do: they set out on a bloody quest for revenge and justice. But they soon discover a far-reaching conspiracy and must race against time to thwart the Nazis’ new genocidal plans.

Two things about this trailer right off the bat:

  1. Less Al Pacino is more.
  2. Millennial actors like Lerman have only one mode–barely weeping in the face of danger.

You Can Get Away With Anything Here In America

If that were only true.

If this were really “inspired by true events” wouldn’t the Mossad—who are the only former Nazi hunters who were really invested in running those old fogies down—be featured more prominently in the trailer?

There’s a Nazi hunter.

From the trades, yet again:

Hunters” 10-episode first season is set to premiere on Amazon on Friday, February 21. Created by David Weil, “Hunters” also stars Kate Mulvaney, Tiffany Boone, Carol Kane, Saul Rubinek, Josh Radnor, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Jerrika Hinton, Greg Austin, and Lena Olin.

It’s gonna take 10 episodes to uncover Nazis? My how far we have fallen from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

What Are We To Make of All of This?

Well, the only sure thing we know is that Al Pacino has backed off his vaguely Jewish sounding accent and that Logan Lerman can apparently only get roles where he’s hunting—and reluctantly killing—those wascally National Socialists.

Kate Mulvany? Really?

Hunters premiers on Amazon Prime on February 21, 2020.
