The Hunted is an action film about deep-woods tracker L.T. Bonham, played by Tommy Lee Jones, who has been hired by the FBI to track and hunt his former student and assassin Aaron Hallum, played by Benecio del Toro, who has turned renegade. In the green woods of Silver Falls, Oregon, Aaron, a trained assassin on absence without leave from the Special Forces, follows his own brand of wildlife vigil. After Aaron brutally slews four deer hunters in the area, FBI Special Agent Abby Durrell turns to L.T. Bonham-- the one man who may be able to stop him. At first L.T. resists the mission as he is happy living in retirement, he's closed off to his past, the years he spent in the Special Forces training soldiers to become skilled murderers. But when he realizes that the recent slayings are the work of a man he trained, he feels obligated to stop him. Using his well-honed nature skills to locate Aaron, L.T. soon finds himself and his partner lured into a gut-wrenching game of cat and mouse. With ruthless precision and murderous skill, Aaron remains one step ahead of his pursuers as L.T. and Abby try to outwit him in the natural and urban wildernesses before Aaron turns them into his next victims. Rated R for strong bloody violence and some language.
