HIT AND RUN is a fun, exciting, non-realistic, gripping spy thriller. It spans two cities across the world, Tel Aviv, Israel, and New York. Over half of the dialogue is spoken in Hebrew.
The plotline takes off after a tragic HIT AND RUN. None of the main characters are who they professed themselves to be. Lior Raz (Segev) is tough, unrelenting, and out-of-control throughout each episode. I would not recommend anyone to go up against him, especially in a darkened alley.
I enjoyed this series. It was good storytelling, but I have to say many of the scenes were filmed too dark. It was very difficult to see who was fighting or jumping who. I know they were going for the effect, but the action’s lack of lighting did not work. Frankly, it was frustrating.
HIT AND RUN is Israel’s first original series for Netflix. It ended with a huge cliffhanger. I am hoping it will be renewed, and the season will be just as explosive.
