Possibly the most underrated masterpiece... ever.
1 April 2003 | by (Mariestad, Sweden) – See all my reviews

What struck me first when I saw the Hunted (aka Fugitive champion) starring the talented Chip Mayer was how much it has influenced on every single movie made after. Many may not know it but the Hunted kind of set a new standard back when it came, although it never reached the big theatres, experts have lavished praise upon this overlooked piece of art.

What starts out as the usual "cliché movie with a macho guy in way to tight jeans as the hero" kind of movie quickly turns into something way heavier.

It's a movie about how you cannot run forever, Mayers character Jake McKnight, ex moto cross champion, is set up for a crime he has not committed. And soon he finds himself running from the government, to find the man who set him up and to clean his name. On his way of doing so Jake meets a beautiful woman named Trish, a woman who might turn out to be Jakes true love.

Never before have a guy with the sole purpose in a movie to be cool managed to be so cool throughout the whole movie, and never before have I seen such great acting so superbly mixed with a thrilling ride like in this totally unpredictable movie.

For you who know you're able to enjoy films although they do not have the highest budgets, most well known actors or any serious attempt of a decent dialogue I can strongly recommend you to have a look at this fine movie. The way it blends awesome street chases with the other stuff the movie contains is just sweet.
