Martin, a mercenary, is sent from Europe by an anonymous biotech company to the Tasmanian wilderness on a hunt for the last Tasmanian tiger.
"THE HUNTER" (On Demand) starring the remarkable, fearless, William DaFoe as "Martin", a mercenary hired by an untoward biotech company to "capture" the last, illusive Tasmanian Tiger; reasons being highly suspect. "Martin" is frigid, calculating, cemented to his mission, his every move honed to perfection, never a misplaced step or unprovoked action; mind, body and temperament conditioned by his trade.
His facade is fissured by the "host" family; husband gone missing, self-medicating wife, two precocious, unattended children. Skillfully, the plot revolves around Martin's matriculation from cold -blooded "hunter", discovering untapped, virginal reservoirs of emotions. The children are the catalyst; the "tiger" completes Martin's metamorphosis.
"The Hunter" is mesmerizing, mysterious, unnerving, disturbing and harbors plenty of "Tasmanian Devils", contributing chillingly to the fear factor.
