When a movie is a hybrid of this sort, it can be tough to strike just the right tone. Mostly, The Hunting Party manages.

By the time the end credits roll, you're still not sure what kind of movie The Hunting Party is supposed to be, other than just queasy.

Best movie in 2007

By mike_59
This is the best movie I have seen in 2007 so far. Richard Gere and Terrence Howard did such great acting. I wish there iwere more movies like this one. I am surprised it is not advertised on...

Well done but contains unnessary illegal drug use not listed in ratings

By tom3000
The movie is well done, full of adventure and filmed nicely. I just see no reason why they have to have all the illegal drug use and references. When I mention this, a lot of people click "Not...

Not what you'd expect

By Tennisbird
Both Richard Gere and James Brolin play so much out of character, it's hard to recommend. Brolin is a creampuff of a news anchor, who admits to plastic surgery. He is a mere symbol of "corporate...

By bokeusba
