* RealityIsUnrealistic: ZigZaggingTrope. To quote Roger Ebert's [[http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-hunted-2003 review]] of Film/TheHunted; "We've seen so many fancy high-tech computer-assisted fight scenes in recent movies that we assume the fighters can fly. They live in a world of gravity-free speed-up. Not so Friedkin's characters. Their fight is gravity-based. Their arms and legs are heavy. Their blows land solidly, with pain on both sides. They gasp and grunt with effort. They can be awkward and desperate. They both know the techniques of hand-to-hand combat, but in real life, it isn't scripted, and you know what? It isn't so easy. We are involved in the immediate, exhausting, draining physical work of fighting."\\
On the other hand Tom Brown, Jr., the [[http://www.trackertrail.com/publications/thehunted/tbj.html primary consultant]] on the film is a bit ashamed of it despite this; "...the bloody knife fight at the end -- no way it would last 4 minutes, any of those wounds are lethal."

* PrivateMilitaryContractor: LT wasn't actually in the military, because his father didn't want his son going through the same horrors he had and pulled every string possible to prevent LT from serving. LT ended up training soldiers how to kill as a contractor, though

* AwesomeYetPractical: Hallam improvises a knife using some random metal and a forge he makes from stuff found in the woods. Not to be outdone, his mentor character makes a knife out of a rock.

* [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Knife]]: There are extended sequences where Bonham teaches Hallam how to forge and knap knives. Just before the climactic fight, Hallam forges a steel knife and Bonham cooperates by chipping out a flint one at the same time in preparation for the duel.

Added DiffLines:

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: The take-down method the LT teaches in the below-mentioned training montage involves a stab to the heart, a slash to each femoral artery, followed by a stab to the lung, just to make absolutely sure the guy is dead.
