Full Plot

In the green woods of Silver Falls, Oregon, Aaron Hallam, a trained assassin AWOL from the Special Forces, keeps his own brand of wildlife vigil. After Hallam brutally slew four deer hunters in the area, FBI Special Agent Abby Durrell turns to L.T. Bonham-- the one man who may be able to stop him. At first L.T. resists the mission. Snug in retirement, he's closed off to his past, the years he spent in the Special Forces training soldiers to become skilled murderers. But when he realizes that these recent slaying is the work of a man he trained, he feels obligated to stop him. Accepting the assignment under the condition that he works alone, L.T. enters the woods, unarmed--plagued by memories of his best student and riddled with guilt for not responding to Aaron's tortured letters to him as he began to slip over the edge of sanity. Furious as he is with his former mentor for ignoring his pleas for help, Aaron knows that he and L.T. share a tragic bond that is unbreakable. And, even as they go into their final combat against each other, neither can say with certainty who is the hunted and who is the hunter. Sujit R. Varma Plot not found

Aaron Hallam: If you cross this line, you better be ready to kill me. Aaron Hallam: What if there was a species above us in the food chain? How do you think you'd feel if that species lost total respect for us... and started slaughtering us wholesale? L.T.: If I'm not back in two days, it'll mean I'm dead. Hewitt: He's a killing machine. There is no way he can be indicted or tried in open court, or any court. He cannot be processed, interviewed, charged with a crime, or copped out as a psycho. His picture cannot appear in any newspaper. As far as the world is concerned, sir, Aaron Hallum doesn't exist. [first lines] Narrator: [voiceover] God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son." Abe says, "Man, you must be puttin' me on." God say, "no"; Abe say, "what?" God say, "You can do what you want, Abe, but the next time you see me comin', you better run." Abe says, "Where do you want this killin' done?" God says, "Out on Highway 61." [last lines] Narrator: [voiceover] God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son." L.T.: [speaks to a group of elite US soldiers] I will teach you how to kill. Quickly. Accurately. Efficiently. It will become a reflex action. You will learn how to enter a combat zone and evaporate into shadow. You will learn how to survive... or you will not! L.T.: [speaks to 'the best of the best' of the US Armed Forces] Once you are able to kill mentally, the physical part will be easy. The difficult part... is learning how to turn it off. Aaron Hallam: When you kill with your own hands there is a reverence. There's no reverence in what you do. L.T.: [talking about Aaron Hallam] He's unusual. He can kill anybody without regret. Most of the poeple he killed never knew he was in the same room as them. L.T.: I made him what he is, I can stop him. Hewitt: Your actions resulted in the injuries and death of unarmed civilians. Aaron Hallam: They had weapons. Hewitt: Well, that's the problem, you can't tell the sharks from the guppies any more. L.T.: They're coming for you. Aaron Hallam: They've been coming for me for a long time, L.T.

- Many scenes were filmed in Portland, Oregon because they needed rain. Unfortunately, during the weeks they were filming, it didn't rain in Portland.

- 'Benicio Del Toro' (qv) broke his wrist while filming a fight scene with 'Tommy Lee Jones' (qv), halting production for four months and pushing back the release date.

- Both Aaron and L.T. use a form of martial arts called Sayoc Kali which is mostly knife fighting, and originated in the Philippines.

- The knife used by Hallam ('Benicio Del Toro' (qv)) throughout most of the movie is a Beck Wilderness Survival Knife, designed by 'Tom Brown Jr.' (qv) (a tracker/survival expert who was a technical advisor on this feature) and constructed by 'David Beck (II)' (qv).

- The Metro Area Express (MAX) light rail train used on the Hawthorne Bridge scene was actually two articulated buses joined together at the rear ends, with the frontal portion of the "train" to look like the actual older Bombadier MAX trains.

- Throughout the film both 'Tommy Lee Jones' (qv) and 'Benicio Del Toro' (qv) wear custom made buffalo leather moccasins by Catskill Mountain Moccasins of Woodstock, New York.

- A few of the characters have been given
