Storyline

This high octane thriller focuses on Lucas, (Sam Worthington), a solitary assassin, hired to kill a young woman, Ella, (Odeya Rush). When he can't bring himself to pull the trigger the plan falls apart, setting in motion a twisted game of cat and mouse. Now both are marked for death and forced to form an uneasy alliance. Relentlessly pursued across Europe, their only hope for survival is to expose those responsible for brutally murdering her family and bring them to justice.

Goofs

Near minute 33, Lucas unloads his pistol by pulling the slide (a cartridge is clearly seen being ejected), slide goes back in firing position, then the magazine is released. In this order, the pistol is still loaded, having one bullet to the chamber (slide moving back loads first bullet from magazine to the chamber). The correct unloading order is: magazine is removed, slide is pulled back, ejecting the bullet from chamber. See more »

Déjà vu and better
21 August 2017 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

While I was watching The Hunter's Prayer I couldn't stop thinking it's all been done before and way better. I watched it until the end though without having great expectations that the storyline would differ from the other similar movies. And it didn't, no surprises at all. Just an average action thriller about a contract killer having some remorse. The acting isn't that bad, but it isn't great either. Never saw a junkie in my life before that could still act normally, especially being a contract killer where you need some accuracy. So that was kind of dumb in my eyes, but than again it's just fiction. So if you have the chance to chose a movie just pick another one with the same story instead of this one because it's all been done better before.
