    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Friedkin is steeped in gore, like some cinematic Macbeth, and it's obscuring his artistic vision. show more

    You keep waiting for there to be more, but there never is -- other than the fact that it all gets gorier and uglier as the dyspeptic look on Jones' face progresses from a four- to a six-a-day scotch-and-peppermint schnapps hangover. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Aspiring to pure action -- several very long passages are wordless -- the movie ends up teetering on the brink of self-parody. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Isn't exactly fraught with psychological depth and nuance, but as a stalker-stalkee suspenser, the pic has some nice things going for it. show more

    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. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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. show more

    Engrossing as it is, The Hunted is more a showcase for formidable talent than anything else. It's a brainy, exciting but shallow show -- an expert's action movie that almost runs out of breath. show more

    Few modern thrillers aspire to look this striking. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    The Hunted is so openly, defiantly derivative of 1982's "First Blood," you figure there has to be a copyright lawsuit brewing right this very minute. show more

    This was a great movie due to the realism of it.Some people can be unstable after being in action and the knife fighting was very realistic also the hunting techniques were great.
