Onya Magazine

It is an atmospheric and richly rewarding film that glides along at a pace akin to that of the small country local within which it's set.

Slow-moving but graceful, this character study is engaging and insightful.

Its mostly observant temper keeps us from being greatly moved, but it holds us with its acute, almost laboratory dissection of its people's beings.

The Hunter delivers a quiet and somewhat meandering story that wallows in self-importance and social agenda.

Part character piece, part family drama and part survivalist thriller, it's most successful when Dafoe is patiently stalking through the woodland, as his craggy presence and the moody cinematography are enough to hold our interest.

This powerful drama is strongly anchored by Willem Dafoe's nuanced performance as a hard loner who is softened by a vulnerable family who finds a place in his heart.

By the time Dafoe tracks down the elusive CGI'd thylacine, my eyelids had washed over with a glaze of numbness. The big winner here, Tasmania's tourist board.

"The Hunter" is mostly well-done, but where I would normally say "it never comes together," I actually have to say it comes together too late.

"The Hunter" is the most intriguing thriller to come along in the first half of 2012. Willem Dafoe continues to showcase why he's one of the best actors today and the cinematography for the film is absolutely breathtaking.

I've always thought of Dafoe as an overexposed but talented actor. In this kind of role, he excels. The story by author/filmmaker Julia Leigh is sound. And, the scenery and locations add so much to the experience. Take the trip.

It is dank and clammy, with ice in its heart, but it is also beautiful and painful, its emotional climaxes hitting home like precision bullets.

A slow-burner about survival in general that may seem predictable in parts and meander in others, but the intensity with which the psychological developments suddenly manifest is its ultimate power.

A thoughtful, sinewy thriller that takes its time, but girds on a stellar, stoic performance from Willem Dafoe.

Entirely convincing as a loner on a mission, Dafoe makes this slow but beautifully shot film compelling throughout.

Dafoe is eminently watchable, and for the most part it's a distinctive, atmospheric movie that cherishes the persistence of mystery.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

There's a gripping moral weight to the questions of survival and profiteering the story raises, and the worryingly inexact moment when our interest in endangered species tips over into thoughts of human gain.
