Trivia

The book named ''A Short History of the Bosnian Conflict'' which was thrown away in the bar scene, is a fake prop one. See more »

Goofs

The UN mission ended in 20 December 1995 when NATO took over (IFOR/SFOR). In 2000 there should have been SFOR flags instead of the UN flags, SFOR patches, not UN and no blue berets. Military vehicles should have their national camouflage painting and SFOR markings. This is for NATO/SFOR details. The UN Mission (UNMIBH) was still active during the time this film depicts and the UNMIBH personnel and equipment are accurate - specifically the blue berets and UN vehicles for the UN International Police Task Force personnel in Foca.

A film well made
10 February 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a disgraced journalist trying to hunt down the most wanted war criminal in Bosnia.

I understand that a topic like this would attract rather polarised opinion. Putting aside the historical facts or political opinion, I think this film is well made and acted. It has thrilling and comedic elements. Just as things start to get slow, there are gunshots, car chases and road blocks to pump up the action. And just when the thrill gets too much, there are fun and relaxing scenes. The ending is strong and affecting, and it sends out a strong political message (or protest) about how the West is not doing their job. Jesse Eisenberg's role as Benjamin is a little redundant, but still I thought "The Hunting Party" was a good film.
