The Hunter PG

He's not as fast as he used to be... That's what makes him human. He's a bounty hunter... And that's what makes him dangerous.

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

...It's fun to see car-and-cycle aficionado McQueen playing a lousy driver who can't parallel park...

Product Description:

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.


Production Notes:

  • Color by Metrocolor.
  • Last film for actor Steve McQueen.
  • The film is based on the book by Christopher Keane and the life of Ralph Thorson.
