All of you action junkies who like knife fights, chase scenes, and violent death scenes will enjoy the film The Hunted. Aaron Hallam (Benicio Del Toro) is a trained killer who saw so much violence while serving in the military in Bosnia he looses touch with reality and begins killing hunters in the forests of the northwest. No, it doesn’t make sense to me either. When the FBI can’t catch Hallam, they call the man who trained him, military consultant Lt. Bonham (Tommy Lee Jones). Lt. Bonham tracks Hallam through the woods and catches him. Hallam is taken back to the city where he escapes after killing three FBI agents in a military van. Once again, Lt. Barrows is called back to track him down. Not only can Lt. Bonham track in the woods (by looking at a blade of grass he can tell someone’s shoe size, weight, hair color and what they ate for breakfast) but also in the city (he just stands there with a thoughtful look on his face then runs off down the street in the same direction Hallam just ran). You think that’s ridiculous? Just before Hallam runs into the woods he gathers up a few twigs and some moss and builds a fire to forge a knife blade out of a scrap piece of 14 inch iron. I can’t go on anymore; I think you know how this one is going to end. Although this film is action packed, it’s unbelievable and improbable. Thank goodness it only lasts an hour and a half because even I couldn’t take another minute of two middle-aged men rolling around on the forest floor fighting – or whatever they were doing. This movie is unrealistic but it did keep me awake so I give it a C rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
