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.

    very exciting I wanted it to last forever.

    Some unbelievable, must watch.

    Make no mistake. Israelis, killing innocent Palestinians, are the protagonists. It's not just fiction, it's propaganda Goebbels style.
  • 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.

    Fantastic, highly recommend!

    fascinating drama, if not ethically dubious. Interesting setting and cultural elements help make fauda feel fresh

    Always difficult to comment on stuff like this because the details are all being discussed as part of a wider debate elsewhere, in this case the Arab- Israeli conflict. It's like Star Wars. You darent comment on it for fear some nerd will start banging on about how you don't understand how the Sith Lords blab blah. So, putting the politics aside, is it a good drama? Yes it is. In a nutshell, itself yet another depressing story about men with issues and guns. There are some obvious narrative arcs. The two main protagonists using the broader struggle to forward their own personal, hate filled agendas. For my money, the cha racier Abu Ahmed, aka the Toblerone Terrorist, steals every scene he's in. He's frightening in a quietly unnerving way. Centre stage for me, though is the aesthetics. When the Israeli guys get together, I'm wondering where they get their awful clothes from. When Dorothy is wandering aimlessly in the dangerous back streets, I'm thinking 'Maybe if they just picked up some litter and tightened up the planning laws things would be better'. Likewise, when Walid goes to see the Fatah leader in his office I'm just aghast that he would work for a man with slicked back longish hair and who on earth picked the decor? The cross-cultural love affai rshould prompt the notion that love can transcend all boundaries. Instead I'm thinking why would this beautiful, educated, Europeanised doctor sleep withe a man 20 years her senior who keeps his chunky gold watch on in bed? That said, if there is any truth in this (and the writer and star was apparently an Israeli operative of this kind), then it's very depressing. If only women ran the place, you're thinking. Instead, they are relegated to wannabe men or sex objects. The single female operative briefly looks like she might provide a moral compass but what hope does she have? Surrounded as she is by men who either have sex with her or want to and most of the time relegate her to a peripheral role. As long as the balance of power in the middle east rests with men that dress this badly, treat women with such disdain and just keep shouting and shouting, then we're up shit creek. It's very violent and thrilling, particularly if they stay with the central theme and keep away from the less interesting peripheral story lines. Flawed, but binge worthy. Looking forward to Series 2.

    It shows white people doing the same thing they have done for centuries. Vilifying the people they oppress to make the oppression look ok. -Alfred Madain
