Eyes of the Hunter
3 July 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

Eyes of the Hunter did absolutely nothing for me as a viewer. The screen writing was weak and Burgess (played by Ed Nelson) spoke to softly and rapidly to carry a complete episode by himself. The first several minutes are painfully boring and Burgess' interaction with each of the squad members is weak. He's supposed to be leading the squad to a German observation post in order to destroy it.

The early mystery begins to unfold when the squad comes across dead soldiers from both Burgess' and the German squad they fought with. Burgess has had his ups and downs in the Army and is proving to be a dangerous rebel to be around. He's definitely a hunter but a psychopathic one.

Fate sends a German artillery shell at exactly the right time and the squad is able to carry out its mission.

The German Sergeant (played by William Smith) questioning our men comes across far more like apple pie than sour kraut. He's as American as can be when they needed a more "German like" actor. You think casting and directing would have spotted this one immediately.

With a script as weak as this one, even the usual excellent directing of Bernard McEveety cannot get it off the ground.
