Creators: Michael D. Fuller, Graham Gordy

Cast: Logan Marshall-Green, Jodi Balfour, Damon Herriman, Peter Mullan

Cinemax here has done it again“Quarry” is torrid  pulp storytelling and sweaty  with original flavour, and yes it is fun as hell.

Quarry is the nickname of the story’s antihero, who just returned from Vietnam  named Mac Conway (Logan Marshall-Green) who was implicated in a My Lai-like massacre. Spit on by protesters at the Memphis airport, rejected by his father and unable to find a job, he somehow  finds himself working as a hit man for a mysterious boss called the Broker (Peter Mullan). The series is based on a series of novels by Max Allan Collins. The director Greg Yaitanes’s artfully composed Southern landscapes to go with the violence and his characters. The series gets just a little while to get started and then let the sex, gunfight, fist fight, couples fighting and bullet flying begin. The series fits the bill with PTSD-themed, post-Vietnam crime dramas and does it works here. It is well written as well as the costume with the cars and the scenery are as near perfect as it can be. And yes there is an explosive ending where you are going to say what the f–k! awesome. Is there an other season I do not know if there is please let me know.
