    Synopsis


    The Hunter
    A mercenary employed by a highly secretive biotech-research company sets out into the wilds of Tasmania in search of the elusive Tasmanian tiger -- an animal assumed to be extinct by scientists, yet rumored to have been spotted in the area in recent years. Adapted from the novel by author Julia Leigh, The Hunter follows Martin (Willem Dafoe) as he ventures out on his mission and arrives at the home of Lucy Armstrong (Frances O'Connor), who has been heavily depressed since her husband vanished into the surrounding wilderness months ago, and who now lives alone with her young daughter Sass (Morgana Davies) and taciturn son Bike (Finn Woodlock) - who have volunteered to host him in their home during the course of his research excursion. Shortly after arriving in Tasmania, Martin is accompanied to the edge of the wilds by Jack Mindy (Sam Neill), an old friend of Lucy's who has kept watch over her family and balks at the newcomer's decision to navigate the rough terrain unaccompanied. In the wake of a clash with hostile local loggers, Martin gradually begins to learn more about Lucy's family and develops a tenuous friendship with her two young children. But later, just as Martin begins to feel as if his goal is finally within reach, an unexpected development sends his mission into a tailspin and causes him to question the motivations behind capturing such a strange and majestic creature. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This film was shot on location and seemed to have a lot of interesting plots but didn't seem to bring them all together by the end. I'm not sure if it was just me not understanding the film or if it was just a poor movie. I didn't hate the movie, just seemed to not be what I had expected.The acting was average William Defoe did a fair job with it and Sam Neil did also, but it was hard to keep my interest

      Good suspense, somewhat overdone in 'eco' theme

      Kept me watching it with good acting and nice filming on location. A little overdone in the 'eco' ideology

      The Hunter is an unlikely movie. The plot is strange but its executed very well.
