The Hunter's Moon was one of the five or six films that Burt Reynolds did in 1997, when he was at the peak of his money problems. Accepting any job offer, he made some terrible movies, and some good ones. Boogie Nights was one of those films he decided to be in just for the money and that ended up saving his career; but The Hunter's Moon is also a decent flick. Reynolds plays Samuels, the "owner" of a mountain, who sees his daughter falling in love with Turner (Keith Carradine). This fact awakens inside Samuels his most lethal instincts, and the showdown is inevitable. Richard Weinman, the guy who directed, should have increased more action and more suspense to the story, but he creates a memorable scene, near the end, when Burt kills all the FBI agents who dared to invade "his mountain" in a shooting. It's one of those scenes that deserves to be included in the cinema's story. Overall, The Hunter's Moon is a great entertainment!
