The Hunted (2003)
Suprisingly, The Hunted with Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio del Toro is a serious crime drama. The martial art scenes are without special effects and appear to be based on real martial art moves and special operations training. Unlike most action thrillers, this crime drama takes itself seriously and the tracking skills presented in this movie by Tommy Lee Jones are consistently believeable. There isn't the usual buddy, buddy, lovey dovy stuff going on either. The primary focus is on the ironic position of an assassin trained by our government who takes his mission too seriously and his instructor who both provide an environmentalist, pacifist message and the search and seek and evade activities as one man attempts to stay alive while the government tries to kill him and the other man tries to prevent him from killing others. A fascinating look at crime drama from a different perspective, an above average movie for its genre and worth a look if one is interested in real martial arts and a movie that doesn't stray from its main plot with fluffy romantic interludes or special effects that defy reality.
