I always enjoy Tommy Lee Jones in a movie. It isn’t that I think he is all that good of an actor, it’s just that something about the way he portrays his character just always entertains me. That’s about the best thing I can say about The Hunted.
This movie is a cross between First Blood and The Fugitive but both of those movies were actually better. The scenes in the Oregon rain forrests reminds me so much of First Blood that I expected Stallone to pop up any minute. That probably would have been a good thing.
I never understood the plot, if there really was a plot, I never understood what drove Aaron Hallam (Benicio Del Toro) over the edge and I still don’t know exactly what I was watching, but I sure enjoyed watching Tommy Lee Jones. He played pretty much the same character that he always plays. One of these days I’m going to have to figure out what it is about him that I find so damn entertaining.
