I expected more action in the THE HUNTERS but I have to admit that the battle scenes were well shot and very realistic. I wanted to see also more adventure instead a lost love story that was too slow paced. Watch this movie only if you are not too tired. As in the other war movie with Bob Mitchum "THE ENEMY BELOW" the color was really de luxe and Robert Mitchum made a again a solid job. The enemies in the film didn't scary me at all. What I missed too were some important details about the Korea war.
I recommend it only to war planes lovers otherwise stay away. Vote therefore is 5/10.
