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.
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.
The sight of Jones expending his sizable acting chops on this piece of macho blowhard fluff is distressing only if you can't relax and appreciate The Hunted on a camp level, where it functions quite hilariously.
