The Hunter Film Trailer Review
There is something very interesting about the unknown, about mythical things, species that ceased to exist. This is probably why it is interesting to check out a serious film that somehow plays on such myths and rumors. The big question is how would they make a film that piques the curiosity of people about something that once was while having an engaging and engrossing effect. Well The Hunter seems to pull that off (for me that is).
After watching the trailer for The Hunter, it made me search for the extinct Tasmanian Tiger and to me the creature was very ordinary, although the thought that one or two of its kind might still exist would be very interesting. A film that features the beauty of Tasmania and the myth/rumor of the existence of the Tasmanian Tiger is what this film uses, but we all know that it is more of the mystery andthe characters hunting it. The film was aptly named "The Hunter" right? The trailer looks good and I don't mind catching it once its out this 2012.
