'The Hunter' is a film that can't decide what it wants to be. What starts off as a promising adventure soon meanders into a tiresome family drama with thriller elements. This film had potential and would have been a lot better if it had focused on the search for the tiger. Instead, there are parts of 'The Hunter' where the hunt feels like a subplot. I would have much preferred an hour an a half of a tense, exciting outdoor adventure than the tedious and inconsequential drama that 'The Hunter' becomes. It tries too hard to do too much and the end result is a frustrating film with an unsatisfying ending. The spectacular Tasmanian scenery is by far the best part of this film - a welcome distraction from the disappointing plot that unfolds.
Martin, a mercenary, is sent from Europe by a mysterious biotech company to the Tasmanian wilderness on a hunt for the last Tasmanian tiger.
