“Hunters” TV series release date on Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video’s new original TV series, Hunters, stars Al Pacino and arrives on the streaming service on Friday, February 21.

Created by David Weil and executive produced by Jordan Peele — whose Monkeypaw Productions helped the show come to fruition — Hunters marks Pacino’s first major TV role!

Indeed, this is big.

Hoo-ah! Oh yeah! This is happening! If you don’t know what Hunters is about, oh my. The revelation of Pacino’s involvement is delightful, no doubt. Proceed furthermore, and the news gets better.

CHECK OUT: Al Pacino Amazon Hunters series cutting-edge in many ways

Name: Pacino and Co. Business: Killin’ Nazis

Here’s a brief synopsis of the series from Deadline’s original story:

“In 1977 New York City […] the Hunters, as they’re known, have discovered that hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.”

Deadline

Pacino’s character, Meyer Offerman, is the leader of the Hunters. Also featured in the cast are Logan Lerman, Kate Mulvany, Tiffany Boone and Carol Kane, among others.

It appears Lerman’s Jonah Heidelbaum is a Hunters initiate who Pacino takes under his wing. One can only imagine how neat it’d be to have such a unique mentor — as an actor and considering the show’s subject matter!

As can be seen in the promotional trailers, Meyer rocks a heavy accent and is pretty adept at combat despite his advanced age.

Amazon Prime Video was wise to get a jump on this Hunters project. It’s a unique, high-concept yet historical fiction yarn that should be a hit with audiences. Critics on Rotten Tomatoes, through 14 reviews, give it a generally favorable 71%.

It’s quite a task for Weil and the creative team to juggle such conflicting tones and adeptly handle such grave subject matter with some levity mixed in. However, they must’ve done a fairly admirable job.

If this isn’t on par with Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, it’s at least a fascinating period piece. Plus, anything with Pacino chewing scenery is certainly worth seeing.

4K Ultra HD & HDR

Amazon Originals specialize in bringing 4K UHD and HDR viewing experiences to streaming audiences. Hunters will be no exception, and should be quite a sight to behold amid the pulse-pounding action and nasty Nazi slaying.

You can watch the latest trailer for Hunters below. Beware, though — it’s of the red band variety!
