POSTERS

Preview: The Hunter (2012)

Synopsis:

Sent to the Australian outback to hunt an elusive, thought-to-be-extinct tiger, a compassionate scientist finds himself the subject being hunted.

  • Poster: C+

Review:

Willem Dafoe is a face anyone can recognize and toting a gun might appeal to a very narrow demographic of viewers. Yet, the poster doesn't really speak much to the quality of the film.

  • Trailer: C

Review:

There's likely a reason it was released to iTunes before theaters, other than the fact that it's not even remotely an Oscar contender. The film looks a bit bizarre for cineplex denizens and may also just be a bad movie all around.

Oscar Prospects:

Ineligible.
