Rating: 4/5 -- Memorable.
For some reason, director Buzz Kulik attempts to slow the pace of the film down to match McQueen's dazed shuffling. Full Review
Rating: 1.5/4 -- The Hunter bears all the marks of a tailor-made "star vehicle," one of those awful movies catering to a star's ego and image. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Sloppy, silly vehicle unworthy of McQueen.

There's a messy accumulation of scenes, effects, and resources that seem like an overview of Steve McQueen's previous films. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
El Pais (Spain)
Rating: 3/5 -- Some great stuntwork highlights Steve McQueen's final film.
...It's fun to see car-and-cycle aficionado McQueen playing a lousy driver who can't parallel park...
Steve McQueen's last movie is a fitting tribute to his memorable talent. He portrays real-life bounty hunter Ralph "Papa" Thorson, who made a long career out of apprehending more than 5,000 criminals and bail jumpers. Thorson's tough antics (featuring a few memorable car chases) are tempered by his touching relationship with his pregnant wife Dotty (Kathryn Harrold)--and his love of antique toys and Tchaikovsky. During the course of the film, Thorson chases down fugitives in Illinois, Texas, and Nebraska, as he himself is pursued by a psychotic killer.
