Critics Consensus

Contrived and cliched, Night Hunter wastes a solid cast in pursuit of action-adventure thrills that stubbornly refuse to materialize.

Critic Reviews for Night Hunter (Nomis)

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (30)

  • It's defined by a constipated performance from Cavill and a debut screenplay from the film director David Raymond that's so titter-inducing and derivative that it appears to have come straight from the Spike Jonze satire Adaptation.

  • As far as you can work out, the film isn't aiming for slippery Lynchian dream logic or head-scratching dead ends, just stumbling into that arena through sheer confusion.

  • This is such twaddle it becomes kind of fun, except that there's an uncomfortable feeling - as with many vigilante movies - that the film is revelling in the sexual violence and covering itself with the fig leaf of justice-seeking.

    September 12, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Testing the limits of good taste in otherwise formulaic grimdark entertainment is one thing, but pushing against those boundaries for its own sake is just tiresome.

    September 6, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Night Hunter" features some absolutely batty plot twists and crazy contrivances that would almost be fun if Raymond hadn't pitched this film as something somber and revelatory - like "Seven" or "Silence of the Lambs."

    September 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Mysteries abound in David Raymond's "Night Hunter," perhaps none so pressing as how Stanley Tucci and Ben Kingsley were prevailed upon to join its flailing cast.

Audience Reviews for Night Hunter (Nomis)

    Despite a formulaic premise and a ridiculous twist that completely changes the credibility of the story, Night Hunter is still a fun time.

    Starts off promising, but trickles in quality as the story heads to its conclusion. The film suffers from pacing issues and over plotting. The cast is quite good, but Cavill's character is just too shallow. The issue is the characters lack true depth and the filmmaker throws a lot of familiar actors into their roles, but leaves them with nothing to showcase. The filmmaker needed to drop some of the twists to ensure the pacing matched the film he was attempted to make. The thriller aspect of the film demanded a tighter and faster film, not the slow burning film that was delivered. The cat and mouse section of the film was interesting and is never exploited as it should've been. The pacing kills all the momentum, which is odd considering the lack of true character development. There is too much here and it sinks under its own weight. 03/11/2019
