classic!!
3 August 2002 | by (middlesbrough, england) – See all my reviews

THE LAST HUNTER, is basically italy's answer to THE DEER HUNTER/APOCOLYPSE NOW, and if i'm being honest, is far better than either movie. I've read that alot of real-life virtnam veterans, hated the forementioned bigger-budgeted movies, because they try to symbolize war with beauty and art. There is nothing beautiful about war..... and THIS movie proves it, also it's non-stop action, and confusion, this is how i (thankfully only have to) imagine what 'war' is like.

The late, great DAVID WARBECK, plays the army captain, who is obviously fed up of 'the war', and is quite cutting and sardonic throughout the movie. Playing like a latter-day BOGART, he comes across, as world-weary and arrogant at times, but his gesture at the finale, makes up for that. It's director has used various footage (mostly explosions) in most of his movies (before and after,most notably, in the irresistable KILLER FISH) But the rest of the special effects in this movie are first rate. Sometimes the movie comes across like a cannibal/zombie flick (and there's nothing wrong with that!) but other moments have a genuine power about them, most notably, the movies opening, and later on, in the scene with TONY KING in the boat, when the vietcong attack.

A very good message movie, that thinks it's an exploitation movie (oh, and p.s TISA FARROW, has the best breasts in recent memory, or should that be mammory?)

A epic 10 out of 10
