About the Movie
Martin David (Willem Dafoe), a skilled and focused mercenary, is sent into the Tasmanian wilderness on a hunt for a tiger believed to be extinct. Hired by an anonymous company that wants the tiger’s genetic material, Martin arrives in Tasmania posing as a scientist. He proceeds to set up base camp at a broken-down farmhouse, where he stays with a family whose father has gone missing. Usually a loner, Martin becomes increasingly close to the family. However, as his attachment to the family grows, he is led down a path of unforeseen dangers, complicating his deadly mission.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film is really Dafoe's show, and he reminds once again why he is such a tremendous actor and also one so easy to underestimate and take for granted.
Rotten: A movie with more plot than it can comfortably handle.
Fresh: Dafoe proves to have the right blend of ruggedness and sensitivity for this conflicted hero.
Fresh: "The Hunter" is engrossing and thoughtful entertainment. It's a mystery with a message.
Authentic and Magical
Love this film, it never tries to be something it's not. It a wonderful roller coaster ride of intrigue and suspense with touches of heart and emotive substance. Magical film. Landscapes and music are sublime. Dafoe is sensational! 5 stars! Can't wait to see it at the cinema.
Very good !!
Very good movie and Dafoe gives one of his best performances.
Ever seen a thylacine?
Willem Dafoe hunts high & low for one in some beautiful country in Tasmania. It's a quest that changes him. I thought it was a modest film with good intentions. I enjoyed it.
