The Hunting Party

If the torture, rape, and ethnic cleansing of the Balkans war weren't horrifying enough the first time, here they are again as a Richard Gere movie. He plays a TV journalist whose on-air flip out in Bosnia ends his network career and his partnership with ballsy cameraman Terrence Howard, who returns to the States to be kicked upstairs. When Howard returns five years later for an anniversary report, Gere emerges from the shadows with a plan to locate and interview a fearsome war criminal. The action plot is lousy with cliched suspense scenes of back-road executions halted at the last possible instant. “You don't know shit until you've been gang-raped for seven hours,” one female character tells the newsmen, a sentiment that must have been lost on everyone involved. Richard Shepard (The Matador) directed. R, 103 min.
