News & Interviews for Hand of God: Season 1
It's not boring... It's awfully wearing, like having your nose rubbed in malevolence and turgidity, without offering up enough character drama to make it worthwhile.
The wheels keep turning but can take too long to get rolling while the plot hits some ruts in the road. But as a viewer, I still remained more inclined to think "Hmm, where's this going?" rather than "I've had it, that's it."
Amazon's new drama Hand of God boasts a stellar cast of veteran and newer actors, yet it fails to compel as it weaves a story of attempted suicide, rape and religious fervor.
The drama... offers nothing new in the twists-and-turns department... but you're unlikely to see a show anywhere else that tackles religious hypocrisy so powerfully, including the edgiest cable outlets.
We're also treated to two women who are broken down to something almost solely sexual.
