Actions thrillers are my favourite films, but recently I have been getting more and more cheesed off with thrillers that promised much, but in the end were souless and unrewarding.
How lucky I was, then, when I found the Hunted!
This film sums up escapism for me. It is 90 minutes of pure and exhilarating entertainment. The viewer is plunged straight into the action, and from then on in it doesn't let up--as we see Tommy Lee Jones hunt down his man and occasionally engaging in what can only be described as jaw-dropping hand-to-hand combat.
Personally, I can think of no better way to unwind after a hard day than to watch two insanely tough and well trained men play a lethal game of cat and mouse.
The acting is solid, the set pieces deliver and you really root for both the hunter and the hunted--which is never a bad thing.
Go on, indulge yourself!
