Hit & Run - 2021 - 6/10
AKA - Pegaa Ubrach // פגע וברח
Enroute to the airport, Danielle is killed by a hit n run driver.
Grieving husband Segev soon travels from Tel Aviv to Manhattan, seeking answers.
Fast moving thriller soon gets far-fetched, then worsens.
Lead characters Danielle and Segev had negative chemistry.
For instance, an artistic dancer and tour guide with a thuggish past?
Who happens to have contacts anytime the plot twist requires?
Our guy playing Segev only has one expression, a puzzled frown.
Like a child missing his applesauce, or the confused drunk the police officer asks to “spell conundrum.”
One is tempted to blame poor acting, but the culprits are likely the director(s).
Beware the “Netflix ending,” as the series nears conclusion, the writers and producers flat out quit.
Hoping, I suppose, for a S02. Don’t bother, boys.
