Critic Reviews for Last Hunt

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

It does seem to take Mr. Granger an awfully long time to get around to freezing out Mr. Taylor. That's the way sermons sometimes go.

Russell Harlan's admirably low-key cinematography complements writer/director Brooks' down-beat tone.

One of [Brooks'] better efforts.

Top Critic

The script's in-depth look into the motivating forces behind the characters is complemented by striking performances. Well-paced direction helps to keep the movie from lapsing into even a moment of dullness.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Not for the squeamish, as the killing of the buffalo is real--done by sharpshooters hired by the government to thin out the herd.

Audience Reviews for Last Hunt


A italian made war movie starring David Warbeck and Tisa Farrow(of fulci zombie fame) comes this pretty violent and bloody war movie that rivals some of the best made in the 80's includeing Platoon, A group of soldiers heads behind enemy lines to destroy a radio station that is broadcasting propaganda to american troops they come across loads of enemy fighters along the way really worth a watch for anyone into war movies period more so ones that show the vietnam era of fighting.

ok western that still is disturbing (2 me) 2 watch them slaughter all those buffalo jesus from 60 million to 3,000!

I got this on a recommendation and I rolled the dice: what I got was an Italian exploitation flick set in the Vietnam War. The attempts at realism and grittiness were damaged by the dated quality of the visuals and some silly scenes. The action scenes were very good though.
