Very familiar territory and badly edited, but worth a watch.

The Hunted with Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro is among one of the best action movies ever!

This movie is disappointing, predictable and totally by the numbers. Wasted the talents of everyone involved both in front of and behind the camera. The plot and characters were seriously thin and underdeveloped and at times it was so boringly acted that it seemed that the actors were just reading their lines off a cue card. Have to wonder why Jones, Del Toro & (director) Friedkin signed on to do such a badly scripted movie.

Can't quite picture Tommy Lee Jones as Johnny superman. Probably would have left the theater by the halfway point.

"The Hunted" is nearly an epic showdown between master and student. The only problem is that it doesn't really do anything. The film is essentially a war sequence, two extended chase sequences, and a final showdown. That's the entire movie. The plot is a bit confused. I'm not sure if there were issues behind the scenes or changes in the scriptwriting department, but there is a disconnect within the story. They stumble onto an interesting theme as the main character targets hunters who use unethical advantages to kill animals. This combined with the psychological effects of military service could have made for an amazing story. Then they completely abandon both premises halfway through and never mention them again. Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio del Toro play their roles well in spite of the script. Outside of the story, the chase scenes are cool as each meeting of the main characters is filled with unusually realistic hand-to-hand combat and an unnecessarily grotesque amount of blood. If you want to experience the story but can't handle blood, don't even bother with this one. There's more blood spatter than a Tarantino film. The outdoorsy atmosphere is interesting but overdone. It's kind of like "Rambo," only not good. "The Hunted" is good for its realistic hand-to-hand combat but outside of this, there are many better films in this genre.

A total dud. It felt like a low budget movie and didn't flow. A major letdown for those who are looking for an action thriller. (First and only viewing - 9/7/2016)

Definitely entertaining. The film was missing essence and the plot became dry and predictable.

The first time I saw this film I was just floored by Del Toro's performance... & Tommy Lee Jones never disappoints.

It's a solid, lean thriller . . . the script isn't anything special, but it works as an vehicle for Friedkin to stage exceptional chase sequences.

The Hunted is a haphazard game of cat and mouse that is ill-conceived and at times cartoonish, sadly depicting the on-screen talent as washed-up action stars.
