The Hunter Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Martin David, a skilled and focused mercenary, is sent into the Tasmanian wilderness on a hunt for a tiger believed to be extinct. Hired by an anonymous company that wants the tiger's genetic material, Martin arrives in Tasmania posing as a scientist. He proceeds to set up base camp at a broken-down farmhouse, where he stays with a family whose father has gone missing. Usually a loner, Martin becomes increasingly close to the family. However, as his attachment to the family grows, he is led down a path of unforeseen dangers, complicating his deadly mission.

Review: Willem Defoe is one of those actors that really terrifies me.  I mean that, lol, he is just so creepy and intense...and as an actor those can be fantastic qualities.  He begins this film as a souless mercenary that is brought in by a shady company and then undergoes one of the most dramatic and soulful transformations that I have ever seen. You begin to see some humanity in him when he meets and falls for a widow and her kids in the town in Tasmania.  This is an absolutely intense and dramatic film, but we recommend it highly!

Interest Range: Action, Drama
