Intense, brilliantly performed, and riveting.
2 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Intense, brilliantly performed, and riveting account of the hunt for fractured genius Ted Kaczynski, America's most notorious bomber. Highly recommended for those who love gritty, well-crafted drama, as well as anyone with an interest in the darker side of American history.

Paul Bettany's portrayal of the serial killer is pitch-perfect and utterly chilling; not least because, as his motivations and manifesto are revealed, there is no small measure of validity in his perspective (the double tragedy of the Unabomber is both the horror he inflicted on his victims, and the loss to society of an incredible mind that could have contributed so much).

Though Bettany undeniably steals the show, 'Manhunt: Unabomber' boasts a very strong supporting cast, notably the wonderful Brian d'Arcy James, among others. Sam Worthington is sympathetic and convincing as Fitz, the beleaguered FBI agent caught in a battle of wills and wits with a bona fide evil genius. Ultimately, it's the stuff of nightmares (and Emmy awards). The Discovery Channel has just moved up into a new league of television.
