Hunter Hunter – Thriller
Category – Movie
Content – Joseph and his wife Anne, along with daughter Renee, live in a remote wilderness as fur trappers. Alone in this desolate world, they face many challenges. One of these challenges is a rogue wolf that has haunted the couple in the past. But now that they have a daughter, it becomes more evident that Joseph hunt and kill this wolf, for the safety of his family. He leaves to track the wolf, and Anne finds herself in an awkward position. Husband gone, wolf lurching and then she finds a man wounded in the wilderness and treks him back to her home to tend to him. What Anne does not know is that a serial killer has been dumping women in the wilderness. While Joseph learns of this, and is now tracking two potential killers, is Anne actually tending to the wounds of one of these predators? I didn’t see the brutal and completely bloody ending, but the end did make this movie leave a mark. Otherwise it was a bit underwhelming and would have been a lost cause. This scores a 6.5 out of 10.
Acting – Devon Sawa plays Joseph and is the strong point of this film. Unfortunately his character isn’t seen as much as it should be and he suffers a fatal ending. We needed more Devon in this one. Camille Sullivan plays the wife Anne, who doesn’t really do much until the end. It is then that her real emotions are seen in the brutal ending. And Summer H. Howell plays the daughter Renee, who is lovely and performs well. And we can mention the wounded man (or serial killer?) played by Nick Stahl. He also does a good job in the short amount of time that he is in the film. All in all, a decent cast that maybe needed a bit more in the script? Score is 7 out of 10.
Duration – 93 mins. Fairly short and that is what this film needed. It could get a little drawn out and stale, We just needed a little something more to keep it punchy. The shocking ending was the best part of the whole film. This gets a 6 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Hunter Hunter – 19.5 out of 30.
Recommended Watch – You could take or leave this one; although, if you are into horrific endings to movies then give it a go. Trust me, I’ve seen a lot worse!
