    Walking in, I thought I knew what to expect, but i didn't anticipate how William Friedkin would jolt me with the immediate urgency of the action. This is not an arm's-length chase picture, but a close physical duel between its two main characters.

    While the plot of The Hunted is tiresome and the character development is phlegmatic, the picture holds fascination in its determination to trim away chat and guff and focus on tempo and filmic textures.

    Aided by cinematographer Caleb Deschanel, Friedkin works economically, lending the film the mark of a master craftsman, albeit of the coldly efficient variety. The terseness and surplus of technical skill make The Hunted surprisingly engaging.
  4. The Hunted stalks the masculine psyche with sharp knives, but it tracks its audience too noisily to bag us.
  5. As in "The Edge," in which Alec Baldwin and Anthony Hopkins were stranded in the wilds, you can earn a wildernesssurvival merit badge just from watching.

    This superficial nonsense is easily ignored; that the movie runs out of gas at the midpoint isn't.
  7. 10
    It's an A-list movie for the most brain-dead elements of the action-movie crowd.

Thought it was entertaing through out and well worth the watch, Good acting and action as well. It could have used a bit more story though. I would give it an 8 but thanks to negative reviews - I am giving it a 10. Expand
