This is a remake of the 1941 move "Man Hunt" based on the same book.
23 March 2000 | by (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a remake of the 1941 movie "Man Hunt" based on the same book. It's a pity one can't combine the casts of both films, because the villain in the earlier version was played by George Sanders, who would have been wonderful opposite O'Toole.

The plot is marvellously gritty, with a brutal struggle for survival and a sense of desperation rarely seen in British films.
