It's actually a tense, intelligent film, highlighting two of Friedkin's pet themes, and it deserves consideration among his best films.
March 5, 2006
Just like Walter Hill's Undisputed, William Friedkin's The Hunted plays a like a clinic for lean, mean, no-nonsense filmmaking.

... It's the polar opposite of the stylized action popularized by The Matrix and other recent films.

With so much going right in The Hunted, it's a shame they couldn't track down a writer (three are credited) who could have figured out how to make the ending work.

Sem jamais desenvolver as personalidades de seus dois protagonistas, o filme faz com que a ação pareça não ter objetivo, embora seja dirigida com competência por Friedkin, mestre do gênero.

Indifferently written but executed with the air of an aging artisan trying his groove back on for size.

Unlike most action movies, when the characters bleed, sweat, and scar, one can't help but notice. There's an emphasis on the physicality of the actors here that elevates some of the scenes above the film's generally uninspiring intentions.

While not quite the caliber of The French Connection or To Live and Die in LA, Friedkin's latest effort will find its niche among followers who prefer a smaller story to the epic scope of most thrillers.

Offers little more than macho bloodletting, but the macho bloodletting is primo.

The Hunted rings thought from action as a solid contemplation of two men displaced in a culture that's moved past their macho-code.

...a refreshing action movie that relies more heavily on solid filmmaking than poorly executed, computer-generated effects.

'The Hunted' is survival-of-the-fittest cinema: a stripped-down exercise in mythic chest-thumping... propelled by brief exposition and minimal dialog.

A handsome programmer that skillfully barrels through its 94 minutes with hardly a wasted moment.

Just plain hide and seek.

Suspenseful and competently made...[but] one cannot help but walk away sensing that more could have been done with the premise.
