THE HUNTER – Blu-ray Review
SXSW ’12 selection THE HUNTER graced audiences with a wonderful performance from the always reliable Willem Dafoe. Set in the beautiful and gritty landscape that is Australia while he searches for a thought-to-be-extinct Tazmanian Tiger, The Hunter is one of the quiet films of 2012 that should have made a much bigger splash. Willem Dafoe fans owe it to themselves to check out this film.
Official Synopsis: Martin David (Willem Dafoe), a skilled and focused mercenary, is sent into the Tasmanian wilderness on a hunt for a tiger believed to be extinct. Hired by an anonymous company that wants the tiger’s genetic material, Martin arrives in Tasmania posing as a scientist. He proceeds to set up base camp at a broken-down farmhouse, where he stays with a family whose father has gone missing. Usually a loner, Martin becomes increasingly close to the family. However, as his attachment to the family grows, he is led down a path of unforeseen dangers, complicating his deadly mission.
