Consensus: An all too familiar chase movie that's not worth the talents involved.

Rex Reed
New York Observer

Ludicrous, plotless, ho-hum tale of lurid confrontation.

Kirk Honeycutt
Hollywood Reporter

By stripping an action thriller this close to the bone, director William Friedkin has removed too much meat.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

You leave feeling detached without a sense of intimacy or adventure.

There's too much talent on-screen and behind the camera for The Hunted to be dull, but it is predictable and disappointing, and we seem to be missing about a half-hour's worth of scenes that would have brought some depths to these characters.

James Berardinelli

This is schlock -- by-the-numbers action that ignores character development to the point where we find it hard to care whether L.T. catches Hallam or whether they end up running after each other until the world ends.

If only we could sympathise with Hallam as he seems to sympathise with hunted animals, this film might engage our interest; but as it stands, the whole length of The Hunted is merely a tedious deferral of the inevitable confrontation.

Michael Atkinson
Village Voice

Essentially a reheating of 1982's First Blood ... but the fallout this time is simultaneously more ruthless, less emotional, and duller.

Desson Thomson
Washington Post

Has so little going for it, you wonder if you've missed something.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

An awful and graphically violent movie.
