PLOT: An informant with incriminating evidence on tape is on his way to a hand it over to the police at a secret drop point. But someone doesn't want him to make that drop...

Shot in Easter 2003, we did this film as a homage to the fight scenes in The Bourne Identity. Its nothing to do with that movie, neither is it our greatest achievement but I think it's damn good fun. I'd happily upload my more serious films but alas they contain no AlamDV effects sad

HUNTED: Contains moderate action violence.

well I loved the use of the camera smile the zoom in in the beggining was great. The fight scene had some strong points and some weak points, some moves were unconvincing, others were. I think I caught a gun shot with no gun flare but I watched the low quality version. Great job smile 4/5 from me.

I think you're mistaken about the missing flash, but thanks anyway! I recommend the higher-resolution one, of course smile

The Good:

sound effect for the pistol.

some of the editing.


The Bad:

the acting, and fighting


The Ugly:

The camerawork (Did you mount that on a paintshaker?)

I enjoyed this quite a bit. While some of the dialogue was a bit forced, it wasn't too bad. The acting again, was better than many on this site, but thats mainly due to the fact there wasn't much to 'act about' with most of the movie being the walk in the woods and the fight. None the less not too shadey.

The fight scene made me laugh, not that it was bad, but the opposite I felt. I know Bryce007 thought it was bad, but other than a few bad cuts and, dear God, the arm snapping bit ( what were you thinking razz ) it was fairly convincing. At times you could see there was no 'contact' due to camera positioning, but it was still very good. I liked the head butts and face-off-tree parts..

I look forward to watch Hunted 2, in a few mins.

Alright, that arm snapping made me laugh out loud it was so over-the-top and brutal (i did it in a recent action movie parody myself) and when i said bad, i didnt mention it was bad in a damn funny way.

I think its a good fight, and the only bad acting is from the guy with the tape IMO razz

Interesting movie. The story did not make sense though (very like my movies) and I realized that you used light bulbs as muzzle flash...
To start with, you had this very exciting, good fight scene at the end. Sounds were good, the actions of the actors were too good for me to understand how you did it...or maybe not. biggrin

Just now, I'm going to watch the 2nd version of this movie, but this one is a 3 1/5, but I can't vote that, so a 4!

No, I used lightbulbs behind muzzle flashes.

[Sounds were good, the actions of the actors were too good for me to understand how you did it...or maybe not. biggrin
What do you mean?

this was good. I really loved the hand to hand fight sequence. The sfx for that fight were amazing. Can you give me the link with all of those fighting sfx on them? Also what muzzle flash plugin did you use about 1:44 into the movie, when the kid in the white sweatshirt fires for the only tiime when hes up against that tree? 4 stars
