  • The idea of Willem Dafoe, one of our most watchable actors, playing a man stalking a thought-to-be-extinct animal in the wild is gripping in theory. In execution, however, The Hunter loses its way. show more

  • Scene by scene The Hunter, adapted from a novel by Julia Leigh, holds your attention like a pair of big, inquisitive eyes, or perhaps the point-blank scope of an automatic rifle. show more

  • To keep serious cinema from going extinct, this could be sold as "The Hunger Games" cross-bred with "The Lorax," but it's better and more mature than either of those hit movies. show more

    Absolutely ridiculous movie! As a wolf lover and animal psychology enthusiast, I found this to be a pathetic portrayal of this species. I can appreciate far-fetched, but this was just pathetic. Not worth the watch in my opinion.
