The Thrill of the hunt
12 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a very captivating motion picture but at the same time it can be a bit of a downer. An Old Hunter's Tale follows Chun Man-Duk, an aged hunter taking care of his teenage son and conflicted by a complex love hate relationship he has with the Mountain King, A tiger that seems to be the Moby Dick to a few sub characters in the film.

It reminds me of The Reverant, but instead of Leonardo DiCaprio going up against a bear, It's a Tiger going up against a Japanese army occupying The kingdom of Korea.

The focus on the Tiger as a main character caused for a lot of Iffy CGI. Then again, the story itself acts more like a old fable, allowing the filmmakers to be very, very surrealistic at times with the Tiger's capability.

So overall, the action does get the heart pumping as man stands off against the great beast, but the story is a real sad one, a good one, but not too uplifting.
