The Hunter

DVD is the best option for this movie.
It is presented in the film's Original Aspect Ratio of 1.85:1 and is 16/9 Enhanced for Widescreen TV's.

Features the film's Original Theatrical Trailer.
Steve McQueen's last film.
The real Papa Thorsen talks with Steve on the set
papa thorsen and steve at bar McQueen plays 'real life' bounty hunter Ralph 'Papa' Thorsen.

The plot includes Papa having to reluctantly deal with impending fatherhood, a dangerous 'job'and a vengeful psycho.

Kathryn Harrold provides solid acting support as Papa's wife 'Dotty'.

Eli Wallach is in typically great form as Bail Lender 'Ritchie Blumenthal', who provides 'Papa' with the job of hunting down a particulary unpleasant Bail Jumper, and character actor Tracey Walter is deliciously weird as the vengeful psycho. McQueen regular Ben Johnson also appears in his final on screen scene with McQueen as 'Sheriff Strong'.
Memorable scenes include a classic TransAm chase/trashing sequence...

McQueen was visibly effected by the cancer which killed him in this film but he still produced a warm and often amusing performance.

Some critics pan The Hunter, but it really needs to be put in perspective....

The first time I saw The Hunter was on TV, and long before I became a McQueen fan. I found it to be an enjoyable 'light' film with some great humour, good character development and brilliant car chase scenes. When I rewatched it years later, after watching McQueen's BEST films, I found it a bit disappointing. The point is that for somebody expecting 'PRIME' McQueen it may not deliver, but it is still 'overall' an enjoyable film.

Steve McQueen's final scene in film.
God Bless You
steve holding baby Steven Terrence McQueen, whose own father had abandoned him as a child, looks down at his new born baby, smiles, and says: "God Bless You".

He died shortly after the film's release.
