An Excellent Thriller.
5 June 2017 | by HealthyLoveSee all my reviews

The Hunter's Prayer is a British-American action thriller film directed by Jonathan Mostow, based on Kevin Wignall's novel "For the Dogs." "The Hunter's Prayer" follows Lucas (Worthington), a solitary assassin, hired to kill a young woman, Ella, (Rush), who is unaware that her family's questionable business dealings have cost them their lives. However, when Lucas can't bring himself to pull the trigger, the two form a bond and escape across Europe together, hunted by those responsible for her family's murder.

Rated R (for violence, drug use and language).

This Film Is Absolutely An Excellent Thriller For All The Family. Parents Should Watch It With Their Children,there is no sex at all and the violence is much better than that of Abu Ghraib Prison Torture In Iraq .
