Hunted Series 1 DVD Review

24 November 2012 3:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Creator: Frank Spotnitz

Starring: Melissa George, Stephen Dillane, Adam Rayner, Patrick Malahide, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Morven Christie, Lex Shrapnell, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Beard, Oscar Kennedy, Scott Handy, Indira Varma, David Sterne,

 Running Time: 464 minutes

Certificate: 15

Hunted has just finished its run on BBC 1 and unfortunately it has already been dropped by the BBC due to its poor performance. Perhaps a spy show taking place around the same time as the release of James Bond film Skyfall wasn’t a great idea. However, Hunted is a fantastically crafted show that easily rivals the best of Bourne, Bond, or Ethan Hunt.

Hunted follows Sam Hunter (George), a woman who works for a private espionage company. Right here we see a major difference from many spy related films and shows. The spies work for a company and not their government, making them more mercenaries for hire. It’s an interesting spin for as we hope our heroes succeed, »
