Based on this film's DVD cover art, you'd be forgiven for thinking "The Hunted" was just another direct-to-video Christopher Lambert flick. But genre fans shouldn't be so quick to write this movie off. "The Hunted" actually features one of the best action set-pieces of the 90's with its bullet train ninja massacre, as well as solid supporting turns from great Asian talent like John Lone and Joan Chen. Recommended.
