Just a bit of a mess, The Hunter stars Willem Dafoe (The Grand Budapest Hotel) as a man hired to hunt down a near extinct animal, the Tasmanian Tiger. It is the last one, and this corporation wants it for some reason.

That feeling of characters doing things for no discernible reason comes up quite a bit in The Hunter. The motivations of the characters and storylines don't make a lot of sense, and the movie really never comes together. The talented actors like Dafoe, Sam Neill and Frances O'Conner (Best Man Down) do as much as they can with the material, but can't make it worth watching.

The Hunter is now streaming on Netflix.
