The Man Hunter
1 May 2017 | by dukeakasmudgeSee all my reviews

Starting out, The Man Hunter was alright & I was really into it but as soon as the movie moved from the Louisiana swamp into the city, The Man Hunter became basic & I lost interest.I think if David Farrow would've hunted Clel Bocock through the swamp the entire movie using his skills like he does hunting big game in the African safari, this movie would've been way better than what it was (I wonder if I should've turned it off & watched something else) The ending wasn't anything great either.It just felt like that's it? All that for nothing.The best thing about the ending was at least I knew it was over.Reading the description is what really had me interested in watching The Man Hunter in the 1st place.It's just a shame it wasn't as good as the description was.It's not a movie I'd recommend watching.It feels like it's something to check out or watch because it's there & that's it.It's not the type of movie to go, *I just gotta see it* I'd really suggest skipping this one unless you have absolutely nothing else to watch
