A rogue special-forces soldier is tracked down by his former mentor in this action thriller. In the Pacific Northwest wilderness, two businessmen from Medford, Oregon who are hunting for game with telescopically boresighted rifles are viciously murdered by Aaron Hallam (Benicio del Toro, in his first role since winning a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 2001), a former clandestine operator who is hiding in the wilderness from his would-be government captors. L.T. Bonham (Tommy Lee Jones), a former civilian trainer of military assassins, is approached and asked to help apprehend Hallam, a former student of his. According to the authorities, the younger man has gone renegade after suffering severe battle stress from his time in the Kosovo War.
