The Hunted is not based on a very original idea, but it is executed in a unique manner. Some people might think it looks like the third "Fugitive" movie, and the idea is similar--Tommy Lee Jones has to chase down and catch Benicio Del Toro, but unlike Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes, Del Toro is actually guilty of murder. Jones plays "LT," the man who trained Hallam (Del Toro) to kill for the government. This is why he is the one to track Hallam, because he taught him. This element makes Jones' role much more believable. This movie is full of violence, none of it overdone, but every act of violence is shown onscreen, and not much is left to the imagination. The hunt for Hallam is intense, and the skill with which Hallam continuously evades his hunters is intriguing. This movie is well worth watching, because both Jones and Del Toro offer terrific performances.

I was so shocked when I saw how violent this movie is. Don't you think some of the scenes should have been NC-17?
