Film The Hunted (2003) - The Hunted is a 2003 American action thriller film directed by William Friedkin and starring Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio del Toro. Brian Tyler composed the film's score.
In the Pacific Northwest wilderness, two businessmen from Medford, Oregon who are hunting for game with telescopically boresighted rifles are viciously murdered by Aaron Hallam (Benicio del Toro), a former clandestine operator who is hiding in the wilderness from his would-be government captors. L.T. Bonham (Tommy Lee Jones), a former civilian trainer of military assassins, is approached and asked to help apprehend Hallam, a former student of his. According to the authorities, the younger man has gone renegade after suffering severe battle stress from his time in the Kosovo War.
Bonham agrees and is assisted in the manhunt by an FBI task force, led by Assistant Special Agent in Charge Abby Durrell (Connie Nielsen). It is Bonham himself who locates and apprehends Hallam after tracking him and finding the subterranean den in which he's been living. After a blistering bout of close-quarter combat in which the much older Bonham seems on the verge of losing, Hallam is captured by the arriving agents. During his interrogation, Hallam states that he went AWOL because the Army now seeks to kill him before he can divulge information regarding off-the-books assignments he's carried out.
