The wind is in the thorn tree.

Yep, there is nothing exceptional to this Rambo formula remake. They use all the same clich' they probably recycles some of the old Rambo blood and bullets.

Now you ask "why we should watch the Rambo rehash?" Well I'll tell you. Because instead of Richard Crenna, you get Tommy Lee Jones and most of his facial expressions; when they are not being hidden behind blood and hair. And instead of Sylvester Stallone, who was very good in "Oscar", you get Benicio Del Toro who can look more like a man betrayed than an old boxer.

The story is as old as the hills. L.T. Bonham (Tommy Lee Jones) is called out of retirement to track down a mysterious person or persons unknown that killed some hunters. The person turns out to be a soldier Aaron Hallman (Benicio Del Toro) that he trained to kill. Through a series of mishaps Aaron gets loosed and the inept authorities must compete with L.T. for the retrieval or destruction. However L.T. knows he is to only one to do it.

So does Aaron get away so he can kill again?

Does L.T. make his first kill or is he really a pusssy-cat?

Do the inept authorities realize their limits before it is too late?

Do we come away with any new insights?

Aaron Hallam (Benicio Del Toro), has went off the deep end using his special forces killing techniques to fillet hunters who kill with "irreverence" as some sort of social statement. Now it's up to the man who taught him L.T. Bonham (Tommy Lee Jones), a professional tracker and good ol' boy to bring him in.
The Hunted is simply a fun, sometimes silly non-stop action extravaganza low on story, dialogue, character development, and overall plot and heavy as a sumo wrestler on visceral, fast paced, beautifully choreographed and even more beautifully photographed action sequences.
Staring in Kosovo, in what can only be described as a vision of hell on Earth, we meet Hallam a special forces op/assassin who witness brutal mass murder at the hands of some tyrannical military force. After his mission is carried out Hallam returns to the world and is given the silver star. He then disappears into the woods and begins to carry out his crusade for animal rights, or so we're supposed to believe even though the details are hazy. There's also a moment where Hallam says he was set up, but that's quickly forgotten along with his animal rights stance and we're left to believe that the guy just snapped. Tommy Lee Jones is brought in as is the case in all these movies where only a retired agent/cop/tough guy can bring down this new threat, a threat he helped create. After a brief, very brief, ploy by a shady government official Bonham jumps aboard to help bring in "his boy." From there we're treated to chase after chase, hand to hand combat after knife fight and it's all breathtakingly captured by William Friedkin of The Exorcist fame. A man whose made a name for himself by filming amazing car chase sequences.

I loved "The Hunted." I thought that it was a brilliant, suspenseful, excellant action film. It was bloody, but not nearly as bloody as "Kill Bill Volume One." I liked the way the killer killed. He used his hunting knife, and during the film, as a viewer, I could feel the way the future victiums felt. They didn't know that they were about to be killed, but they were scared. The two stars in "The Hunted" are Tommy Lee Jones and Benecio del Toro, and they were perfect in their roles.
When the film begins we meet Aaron Hallam, who is a soldier in a war battle in Kosovo. He witnesses explosions, burning buildings, and people shooting each other. Finally he stabs somebody in the throat, and we flash to a different scene. We then meet L.T. Bonham(Tommy Lee Jones) who is a retired military trainer. He is called back into action when a former trainee of his-Aaron Hallam-goes on a murder spree in Oregon. During his battle in Kosovo, he finally snapped, and becomes the very dangerous killer of four men. L.T. arrives at the lastest murder scene in the woods. He meets Abby Durrell, the agent working on the case, and he sees dozens of other agents looking around the scene of the crime. He likes working alone, and meets him in the woods, while looking around. He brings Aaron back with him, but while being transported to another location, he somehow mananges to escape. When L.T finds out about that he become determined to find him or kill him, because he is still very dangerous. Turns out, Aaron went to see his ex-girlfriend Irene Kravitz, and her daughter Loretta, Aaron and L.T. ensure a cat and mouse game, with either one of them being the cat or the mouse.
A main reason who I loved "The Hunted" so much was because it was a fun cat and mouse chase.

the basic premise of this film is this: a trained special forces
assassin who has gone AWOL from duty,begins killing hunters in backwood
Oregon.the only man who may be able to stop is the man who trained
him.and so the hunt is on.Benecio Del Torro is Aaron Hallam,the
hunted,while Tommy Lee Jones is L.T Bonham,the Hunter.i should mention
right away,that this movie has some very graphic and bloody
violence,including scenes of war at the very beginning.both Jones and
Del Toro are good in their roles.there is a lot of action and the fight
scenes i thought were phenomenal,no flashy camera tricks,just well
choreographed fighting.and,i have to admit that the director,William
Friedkin made a pretty good movie here.i have not been a fan of
Friedkin for some time,having seen a few of his other films.however,he
surprised and impressed me here,so i give him give him credit for that.
4/5
