CinemaVisitor Erik65 - Eerie Australian drama with a mesmerising performance by Dafoe and breathtaking Tasmanian landscapes but the sub-plot is totally needless.

Dan O'Neill5 - The Hunter features a very slow, but melodic pace, with great performances from the small cast and beautiful cinematography. However, when it steps away from the forest, the film tries too hard to get emotional on us and it just ends up being more forced than anything else.
