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
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.
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.
Thanks to the quick pace and assured handling, along with a few notable badasses, Manhunt is imminently watchable.
The capture of Kaczynski is a moment many of us remember well, but this harrowing retelling reveals the inside story of the hunt for the Unabomber-and what, or who, turned the brilliant, damaged Ted Kaczynski into a man who killed.
