This is schlock -- by-the-numbers action that ignores character development to the point where we find it hard to care whether L.T. catches Hallam or whether they end up running after each other until the world ends.

It's disappointing to watch the continuing fall of director William Friedkin.

March 13, 2003
One-on-one match-up between Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro is a torturously slow misfire that drips blood.

By stripping an action thriller this close to the bone, director William Friedkin has removed too much meat.

There's too much talent on-screen and behind the camera for The Hunted to be dull, but it is predictable and disappointing, and we seem to be missing about a half-hour's worth of scenes that would have brought some depths to these characters.

Blunt, muscular and single-minded, The Hunted is a 98-minute chase scene, and on that level, it succeeds.
| Original Score: 2/4

The Hunted is as generic and unspecial a movie as its title suggests, a loose bundle of filmmaking formulas that leaves the viewer disengaged. . .

If only we could sympathise with Hallam as he seems to sympathise with hunted animals, this film might engage our interest; but as it stands, the whole length of The Hunted is merely a tedious deferral of the inevitable confrontation.

Be prepared to endure pounds of painful preposterousness in return for the film's pint-sized pleasures.

An unpleasant action suspenser more dedicated to hurtling relentlessly forward than to vesting audience interest.

The Hunted could also be called Fun Things To Do With a Knife.

The Hunted . . . has the pacing of a chase movie, the atmosphere of a horror film and the tired formula of a morally bankrupt Tinseltown action flick.

March 26, 2003
...a generic by-the-numbers action thriller that has all the out-of-whack suspense of a defective dental drill...a desperate need to lend this rudimentary noisemaker some impulsive personality as well as credibility.

You leave feeling detached without a sense of intimacy or adventure.
Joe Baltake

A thoroughly mediocre action movie.
