The Hunter Reviews

Stanley Kauffmann

Its mostly observant temper keeps us from being greatly moved, but it holds us with its acute, almost laboratory dissection of its people's beings.

A movie with more plot than it can comfortably handle.

It's all intended to be darkly metaphorical. In actuality, it's a mediocre film unfolding without plan, purpose or enthusiasm.

With a rucksack of gadgets, Dafoe makes a believably cunning tracker, and when he finally confronts his prey, the mutual respect feeds a poignant parable.

Not much happens in "The Hunter." And what little does happen, happens very slowly. And then is repeated.

The character arc is strong on paper but not well-realized on film, and therein lies The Hunter's greatest failing.

By the time The Hunter jettisons its narrative ballast altogether and embraces its elemental appeal, it's too late.

The film is really Dafoe's show, and he reminds once again why he is such a tremendous actor and also one so easy to underestimate and take for granted.

Nettheim films long stretches without dialogue and lets the landscape take centre stage, relying on Robert Humphreys' superb camerawork to tell the story.

Mostly this is just too mild, too quiet, too distant. It tracks its target. But it never quite manages to get it in its sites.

Dafoe proves to have the right blend of ruggedness and sensitivity for this conflicted hero.

"The Hunter" is engrossing and thoughtful entertainment. It's a mystery with a message.

Dafoe invests every action with a sense of purpose (not, thankfully, the same thing as meaning), to the extent that viewers would likely turn up to watch him peel potatoes, Jeanne Dielman-style.

"The Hunter" doesn't particularly test him, but Dafoe, who's in every scene of the film, easily dominates it.

Alas, just when you'd like the movie to double down, la Peter Weir's Witness, on its cryptic hero's rebirth, he's yanked back into an abrupt close that feels rushed and poorly linked.

"The Hunter" never declares who is good or bad or right or wrong. And the implications of Martin's decision when the moment of truth finally arrives are left for the viewer to unravel.
