Tagline: Some men should not be found.

Plot: Revealing the bond between these two men almost entirely without words, Friedkin first introduces Aaron Hallam (Benicio Del Toro) in 1999, during the bloodiest of the fighting in Kosovo. Serbian soldiers are carrying out scores of atrocities against Albanian civilians while U.S. Special Forces operate covertly nearby. Aaron -- at this time a soldier in good standing -- penetrates a demolished building and slips unseen past guards. As he moves without a sound, there is a tense moment when the path to his target is blocked by a small child praying over her mother’s dead body.

But Aaron is so skilled at melting into the shadows that the Serbian officer who has ordered all this butchery has no clue anyone is even in the room until Aaron has killed him. Awarded the Silver Star for valor for this murder, Aaron feels no honor as he lies awake, tormented by nightmares.

external linkWhile not incredibly fulfilling, it does the job in the ways of simple distractions B-

external linkAt best, The Hunted is a decent actioner with some surprisingly effective hand-to-hand combat sequences and a beyond memorable performance from Del Toro. At worst, though, it's a cliched amalgam of virtually every action flick over the last 20 years. 2.5/4
--David Nusair (Reel Film Reviews)

external linkAs it stands it's better than most good films and comes highly recommended, as long as you don't expect it to change your world. 3.5/5
--Carl Lazarevic (MovieWeb)

external linkAnimalistic, altogether bloodier version of The Fugitive – watchable but hampered by half-hearted plotting and a laughably pretentious opening and closing. 2/5

external linkA laughably bad action movie, with an overall rating bumped up only by the obvious capability of the actors involved - which of course begs the question of why any of them wanted that involvement in the first place. 3/10
--Gary Panton (Movie Gazette)
