Critic Consensus: Engrossing and affecting, Manhunt: Unabomber uses a taut, meticulously constructed narrative to uncover the facts behind the oft-exaggerated true story.

News & Interviews for Manhunt: UNABOMBER
Manhunt is an all-out winner. It draws great tension and frustration out of the bureaucracy of this particular federal bureau and takes the time to detail the Unabomber's motives as well as his methods.
The result is television that (occasionally) fails to pop with excitement, but nevertheless engages on an almost Fincher-ian level. Add in the fact that it's all really true, and looking away from Manhunt is a hard thing to do.
Engrossing at times and well worth watching, though the writing is often graceless and the direction haphazard.
Manhunt: Unabomber is marvelously constructed, deeply felt and one of the year's best.
The writing may be somewhat cringeworthy, but Manhunt always has Kaczynski's actual manifesto to fall back on (which it does often, via voice-over). You'll settle into a marathon, and a Wikipedia dive, in no time.
