Critic Reviews for Fauda Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Fauda is a thriller, and it includes plenty of violent action, but the battles and chases have a frighteningly casual, lived-in feeling.

Mar 13, 2017 | Full Review…

With 12 episodes averaging 34 minutes each, this Israeli series carries no fat as it toggles between an elite Israeli undercover commando and his prey, a Hamas terrorist.

Jan 10, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a doozy of a political action thriller, a grabber from the get-go, and wildly compelling.

Dec 9, 2016 | Full Review…

I have to say "Fauda" humanized some Palestinian characters in ways that I have not seen anywhere on American TV.

Dec 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Fauda stretches credulity thin towards the end of its 12-episode debut season (another is forthcoming), but by then you'll be hooked-and willing to make allowances.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

... the show shares The Wire's empathy for characters on both sides of a violent conflict.

Audience Reviews for Fauda: Season 1

  • Apr 23, 2021
    Enjoyed the storyline. Got a bit frustratingly unbelievable in Series 3. Presented a strong humanisation & empathy for the Palestinian characters..
  • Mar 03, 2021
    How cynical do you have to be to create entertainment out of the misery of people living under occupation
  • Dec 13, 2020
    Sexist, macho, violent stereotypes which denigrate women who are portrayed mostly as sex objects, sufferring mothers and victims and relevant only when they are useful to the male characters. These myths of Israeli and Palestinian macho are self serving and perpetuate stereotypes which are insulting and harmful to Israelis and Palestinian men and women.
  • Sep 17, 2020
    Skillfully written and cleverly filmed. This taut thriller is violent but takes life very seriously. It transports the viewer to an unknown world that's vivid, challenging and revealing. The loves and losses of both sides in this conflict are depicted in complex characters who struggle with what it means to be angry and vulnerable, loved and hated, unified and alone.
  • Jul 05, 2020
    The show requires no boundary, no country of origin for indulgence. Its warm, honest, exceptional, heart breaking, joyous - all at the same time. A must watch!!
  • Jun 16, 2020
    Excellent thriller dealing with Israeli special agents and Palestinian terrorists.
  • May 01, 2020
    This is a very solid show. Well acted and well written. It embarrasses most of of the garbage coming out of Hollywood these days.
  • Nov 07, 2019
    very exciting I wanted it to last forever.
  • Oct 21, 2019
    Some unbelievable, must watch.
  • Feb 24, 2019
    Heartwarming and brutal in one show , not many shows which make me feel sympathy for all sides. The show does well in showing the human side to all and how far people are willing to go for their cause and how both sides are closer to each other than they would admit. Pacing is good with slower moments off setting the high tension action which keeps you wanting more and living up to the title (chaos) and the acting is good across the board really making you feel like a fly on the wall. If you like cop/action shows and don't mind subtitles don't pass on this.
