Terrible, derivative, sensational & a waste of time .

A great psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end with brilliant acting.

A MUST WATCH FILM, the acting is Unbelievable, the story was fantastic, it kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end and has a strong message about the world we live in today.

Too confusing .

Entire film full of boring conversation!

Some were singular while the others were just a waste of time.

Quite hard to follow the script and flow of the action, jumping from scene to scene was a mess at the very least.

Anyhow, the movie was entertaining and had all the elements of a good movie and strong message to people out there.

The way the film is edited causes it to be quite confusing.


He was a pointless character.

I enjoyed it so much I rewatched it, again and again.

Disjointed and incoherent .

Big sigh of relief and several yawns when end credits rolled.

The film had everything; I was on the edge of my seat at some points, I felt for the antagonist that sucked me in and felt almost betrayed when he turned out to be bad, I understood Ben Kingsly's motivations, and when Henry Cavill gave his daughter the reason he sometimes seems cold and distant I was almost moved to tears!

A very entertaining film .

I could let that go.. the too-fast-paced and confusing script, I couldn't.

I enjoyed it, although...

It was suspenseful, twisty, and great acting, particularly by the bad guy.

Don't waste your time like the actors of this movie did by being in it.

Interesting movie with some thrilling scenes I prefers to watch it.

The story was very predictable and the ending felt really lazy.

An entertaining, free on prime, thriller .

I find this fascinating.

I fell asleep after I saw he stupid twin thing.

The cat n mouse game between the inmate n the cops is thrilling like Law Abiding Citizen.

I found the film very slow (despite its modest 98 minute runtime) and I also found the narrative a little scattershot and unfocused.

Tedious .

The drama and chase was intense and the story progressed as it went and kept you curious on whats about to happen next.

I really enjoyed it and was plenty of twist and turns.

Then comes a big twist, which makes things even more confusing.

Night Hunter is a terrible psychological thriller that is filled with dumb characters, boring script, and dull direction.

Dialogue at times intelligent; at times unexpected.

Ignorant, stupid, boring and lame.

Worth the watch.

Very enjoyable movie with a great cast and gripping plot.

The acting was well below what you would expect and the whole movie was really a waste of time.

One big confusing plot .

The plot starts off fairly promising, but soon derails into confusion.

Confusing .

All in all, this was a waste of celluoid, and my time.

Long periods of boredom followed by hectic scenes that leave you wondering what's going on.

Predictable,scripted after better movies,doesn't make much sense,that's all true.

Cavill is good, Alexandra is amazing as ever and Brendan Fletcher is absolutely STUNNING AND SCARY.

Cliché .

Don't waste your time.

The producer makes some mistakes and it becomes a cliché instead of a good thriller.

Confusing and disjoint .

This movie is a good thriller with decent plot twists and suspenseful moments.

Enjoyed it apart from some bit are really loud and then others really quiet so continually changing the volume

The other reviewers pretty much have it spot on , its bad editing and disjointed flow make this a bit of a nightmare to watch and maintain interest.

Good cast, slow plot, ok ending, Simon is the real star here.

This had so much potential with a stellar cast but turned into a disjointed mess.

Instead they are getting an exciting psychothriller.

Not much gore which is nice considering a lot of new movies around seems to drive the hard R rating too much, it gets boring.

The cast was great and I was kept on the edge of my seat for most of the movie.

Very entertaining.

even better is the twist that's just so good and unexpected it adds another level to a great film

It's not a bad thriller, it starts off well, has a decent enough ending, but the middle of the film is somehow slightly confusing.

A confusing, contrived and ultimately uninvolving would-be thriller centring on an apparent long-term serial abducter and killer of young women.

The movie has entertaining thwists building up to the most satifisying great final battle between good and evil.

This was the first thing I found confusing about this film.

This was so confusing as they tried to put way too many pots on the burner.

Worth watching.

is a lot simpler than that if still highly contrived and after a "Se7en"-type break-out, our crazed killer kidnaps Kingsley's adopted daughter and the profiler setting up a climax which ensues on a thin ice-rink when Cavill finally catches them up.

Absolute waste of time .

Some sad parts but its engaging.

The story concept is the same old police killer chase, but as it progress it became more exciting.

Suspenseful and Entertaining .

It is thrilling and interesting and has a twist you don't see coming.

Again by himself, it could be an intriguing performance.

I really enjoyed it.

It just feels disjointed.

This movie is so freaking slow and plodding it is nearly unwatchable.

A good movie worth watching!!.

Derivative and difficult to follow I just couldn't get into it and in truth wished I'd hunted out another movie instead this particular night.

Try to stay awake for the "Night Hunter" .

There is a twist which is boring.

I could simply say big names , worthless movieJust don't waste your time

Predictable plot.

Alex Lu's score is intrusive, and repetitive.

Great acting and a very entertaining film.

something I don't normally notice but in their attempt to be gritty, it became distracting and destroyed the possibility to become immersed in the story.

Blasphemous, and mundane.

Unfortunately, this erratic, confusing film was a disappointment.

A waste of potential, time and Nathan Fillion.

Weak, predictable crime melodrama, using stigma as a crutch .

Prime Evil, Silence of the Lambs, etc. BUT, it was enjoyable movie for a lazy day inside.

The editing is terrible here, pointless scenes, scenes that dont transition well to the next scene, scenes to long, to short, you name it.

It's an engaging story, great screenplay.

So no comments on the lighting, script, audio, scenes, etc. If you want a semi suspenseful crime thriller, no insanely twisted plot, just a good film to spend time watching with chips and pop, then this hits the mark.

Still,a thoroughly entertaining movie.

It's not as predictable as most movies of the genre, with several unexpected twists along the way.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did

I found the direction haphazard and disjointed, a typical complaint of mine against modern-day Hollywood thriller movies.

Gratuitous Violent Waste Of Time .

Confusing .

It's a less polished than something like Seven or Bone Collector but manages to be quickly paced with car chases, stunts, suspenseful drama and good envogue cinematography.

But overall, if you're looking for an entertaining Friday night thriller, I definitely recommend this!

Im actually easy to impress when it comes to cinema, but this movie was pure waste of time and bad as hell.

The potpourri of accents added to the general confusion.

With this cast and the premise this really should of been an excellent movie but its not, just a confusing mess.

Ugh what a damn waste of a brief night I have and fell asleep due to this trite!

The cat and mouse aspect was interesting for the start, but the slow burning pace kills the momentum.

The film is too long and sufferes from not having a very messy storyline arc.

Really enjoyed the movie, there was some flaws which were silly ,i wont spoil it for ya but def worth a wee watch,suspenseful,bit mad, and twist.

Somewhere amongst this confusing and disjointed film is a fantastic film trying it's best to get out.

I absolutely loved this film and shocked at the low ratings, it's a fabulous film and worth watching.

but ,nevertheless enjoyable one time watch,also, bravo to the actor who played the bad guy!

Really enjoyed it.

The mystery is good in his concept but the way it develops is slow, not so slow to be chaotic but slow to be boring.

One of the worst movies ever.

Slow burn, slow twist .

Don't waste your time in this one, you will want your 2 hours back.

A heavy drama with good twist and compelling characters.

The villain remains uninteresting until the last half of the movie.

Slow like hell!

The storyline was amazing with a lot of surprises and really i enjoyed it

They can write a decent script, but they choose to rely on the easy cliché.

Everyone talks like robots except ben kingsley and stanley tucci who seem determined to actor their way through this snoozer.

Bored to freaking death.

Engaging n suspenseful uptil the revelation.

The story gets confusing half way through.

Well.. I get that the movie has some flaws but it was enjoyable anyway!

The plot is solid with some enjoyable twists and the acting is very good except if you waiting to see Henry Cavill without his shirt...
