Tommy Lee Jones
Benicio Del Toro
Knockout Danish actress Nielsen also better get herself a new agent as this is her second throwaway role in a row ( the other being the Travolta stinker BASIC). I know she wants to get her name out there, but at what price? Her FBI agent part was completely useless, but I must admit that I loved watching her parade around in tight jeans and sweaters (it was the only thing of interest in the film). Del Toro smoothly cashes another paycheck and hopes Hollywood and his fans will forgive him for this folly. I know I forgive him, Benicio is as badass and creepy as always, but it’s of no use in a film this laughably predictable and flat.
Pursuing The Hunted: Cast & crew talk about the film. You know the drill. Why exactly did they call these things “documentaries” anyway ? To make it sound more professional and interesting, I suppose. This is an 8-minute featurette people...call a spade a spade. You’re not fooling anyone.
Filming The Hunted: Nine minutes of Friedkin and friends getting into the technical side of shooting an action/adventure yarn and trying to make it as exciting and compact as possible. It was compact for sure at 94 minutes, as far as exciting…em, no.
Tracking The Hunted: Real life tracker Tom Brown (and the film’s technical advisor) tells us (in 4 minutes) how real the tracking methods and survival techniques are in the film.
The Cutting Edge: This featurette (I refuse to call it a documentary) is about 8-minutes of The Hunted crew going over the various stunts they pulled off and the locales they shot in.
Moving along, there are 8 deleted scenes packed onto the disc. If you enjoyed the movie, then by all means watch these cut scenes, I wasn’t very interested in seeing deleted scenes that were surely to be even lamer then the film itself. The theatrical trailer and some previews are what’s left on these extras.
