Night Hunter Blu Ray Review (Paramount)
Police profiler Rachel Chase (played by: Alexandra Daddario from Texas Chainsaw 3D, Bereavement, True Detective, & Baywatch) & Commissioner Harper (played by: Stanley Tucci from Captain America: The First Avenger, Monkey Shines, Transformers franchise, & The Hunger Games franchise) help with the complicated case. In investigating Simon’s background, they discover that he was born from rape & his mother attempted suicide before giving birth to him. While Simon is in custody, the police force finds themselves apparently being targeted by another attacker. Technician Matthew Quinn (played by: Nathan Fillion from Castle, Firefly, Slither, & Green Lantern: Emerald Knights) runs into some bad luck & fellow technician Glasow (played by: Mpho Koaho from Falling Skies, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, & Saw franchise) is forced to free Simon when the life of his infant daughter is threatened. The police recapture Simon after he has killed his father, just as Cooper discovers that Lara is missing. Cooper ambushes his police transport but he runs into an unlikely surprise, can they stop this real life monster or Is it too late????
Night Hunter kinda flew under the radar & it didn’t really get promoted much. When I seen the concept & the cast for it, I was instantly sold on it & it actually lived up to my expectations for it. This is one of the best suspense thrillers released on home video this year, it had some intense spots & I enjoyed the darker tone of it. Brendan Fletcher gives the best performance of his career in this, he stole the show! I loved Ben Kingsley’s character, he was great in Night Hunter. Those two really elevated the overall production with their roles. Plus the supporting cast that includes Henry Cavill, Alexandra Daddario, Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion, Eliana Jones, Mpho Koaho, & Minka Kelly (Titans) were very impressive for this smaller film that looked it could have been way bigger than what it was. The writing kept you on your toes & it had a twist that blew my mind at the end, I didn’t see it coming at all. It was very entertaining & better than I thought it would be. I hope it gets more attention now because it deserves it, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
