Nothing in Death Hunt makes a great deal of sense, though the scenery is rugged and the snowscapes beautiful.

A modest bit of macho cinema.

Creative Loafing

A highly enjoyable actioner with no frills.

Combustible Celluloid

A few moments of good, visual storytelling aren't enough to save this frustrating film.

Audience Reviews for Death Hunt


Bronson against a mob of men. I feel like this is recurring theme in his films.
This film in particular has then going after him, still not too different.
This is a good movie though. Lee Marvin and his gang of local toughs and deputies and well fleshed out.
What's cool also about this film is that it's sort of in two parts. One where Bronson is protecting himself in his house, and the last part where he is running away from the group after him.
It's a solid action, with some great moments.
