I find this film enjoyable.

THE HUNTER'S PRAYER is very much an average kind of thriller: made with an average budget, an average script, and average direction from Jonathan Mostow, who once upon a time made some very entertaining movies in the form of BREAKDOWN and TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES.

Such a dull movie .

Yeah, it's that predictable, and plays out like a low-rent BOURNE copy for the most part: some shooting, some fights, lots of familiarity.

Cliche by cliche.

There were times when it was in the more dramatic moments, the pace would become slow (which was actually in contradiction to the novel which according to critic was a fast-paced page-turner).

The movie did not have large special effects, but the action sequence including the car chase and the hand to hand combat were actually pretty exciting.

The supporting cast are largely unknown to me, yet all deliver riveting character roles.

Thrilling action with genuine emotion .

Bland and emotionless.

From adrenaline rush beginning to 'what were they thinking'.

The first half of the film is a fabulous adrenaline rush and very unpredictable.

There's plenty of wooden dialogue and formulaic plot elements here.

Apart from all that, though, the film is thoroughly entertaining and Sam Worthington truly is a worthy actor.

It was realistic action and the story was entertaining enough to not get bored during the movie.

"The Hunter's Prayer" has a thrilling story, and more importantly a story that makes you care about what happens to the characters.

I did not enjoy this , what i'm gonna critique about the movie should be essentials , the story is so vague and badly written , the movie becomes so confusing at so many moments , the score of the movie was very badly used , that would put thrilling symphonys in non action packed parts of the movie , overall it was a flop for me , I didn't care about any of that characters .


Worth watching .

There also isn't a lot of action, and while the few action moments do have some genuine energy, they are often directed and edited in a somewhat confusing manner.

There are several assassins and so the firefights are unexpected, thrilling and graphically explosive.

There are many action and combat scenes that makes The Hunter's Prayer a fast paced thriller.

I found it to be pretty entertaining.

But there is some stunning footage of Yorkshire at the close of the film, as well as a grand old English manor house.

Another part is a cartoon villain with a phoney pretentious English accent who drags down the entire film.

The characters are also nothing terribly new, and the lead character is a kind of bland figure who doesn't open up that much and show what he is thinking or feeling.

It's a fun action film for the most part, nothing too memorable (or special), but it is entertaining.
