Critic Reviews for Manhunt: UNABOMBER

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (12)

Engrossing at times and well worth watching, though the writing is often graceless and the direction haphazard.

July 28, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Manhunt: Unabomber is marvelously constructed, deeply felt and one of the year's best.

July 28, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

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.

For those seeking more style over substance, the show falls a little short. It's worth tuning in for the performances and sticking around for the gripping narrative in play.

This show had me entirely invested and binging through the entire series.
