* NoodleIncident: played straight as Hallam can name all the covert black ops he'd been sent on by codename.
* 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.

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: The take-down method the LT teaches in the below-mentioned training montage involves; a slash to the brachial artery, a slash to the throat, 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. They ''drill'' this so it becomes as natural as zipping up after using the bathroom.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: L.T. suffers of motion sickness and is afraid of heights. It does not hamper him in his pursuit of Hallam.

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.

* 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."
