Sam Worthington Stars as a Hitman in Trailer for 'The Hunter's Prayer'
"There are people out there… they're hunting you." An official trailer has arrived for an action thriller film titled The Hunter's Prayer, or just Hunter's Prayer for short, about a skilled assassin who becomes a protector instead. The film stars Sam Worthington as an assassin who has always lived a life of his own, without any attachments. When he's hired to kill a young woman, at the last minute he chooses to watch over her instead, and then joins with her to get revenge on the people responsible for brutally murdering her family. The cast includes Odeya Rush, Martin Compston, Amy Landecker, Veronica Echegui, and Allen Leech. Not surprisingly, this looks blatantly mediocre, with plenty of assassin action but nothing we haven't seen many times before. I'm sure this will be forgotten quickly, but maybe a few of you will catch it.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jonathan Mostow's The Hunter's Prayer, from YouTube:
This high octane thriller focuses on Lucas, (Sam Worthington), a solitary assassin, hired to kill a young woman, Ella, (Odeya Rush). When he can't bring himself to pull the trigger the plan falls apart, setting in motion a twisted game of cat and mouse. Now both are marked for death and forced to form an uneasy alliance. Relentlessly pursued across Europe, their only hope for survival is to expose those responsible for brutally murdering her family and bring them to justice. The Hunter's Prayer is directed by filmmaker Jonathan Mostow, director of the films Beverly Hills Bodysnatchers, U-571, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and Surrogates previously. The screenplay is written by Paul Leyden; based on Kevin Wignall's book of the same name. Saban Films opens The Hunter's Prayer in select US theaters starting on June 9th.

Very Jason Bourny. I like it.

I want to see a movie like this, but where the assassin doesn't get emotionally attached to the person they were hired to kill and actually completes the mission. Yeah the movie will either last 20 minutes or have no real action, but at least it won't be a repeat story line.

I probably wouldn't track down at the cinema but I like Sam Worthington and have a lot of time for the director - U571, Breakdown and T3 are all very entertaining films. One to look out for on the DVD Netflix circuit at some point.

Sadly, Sam's career has been pretty sad. I think he is a fine actor, but has for some reason been given one of the worst hands in Hollywood history.

"Let me tell you the tale of an assassin whos contract turned his heart into gold..." This looks like a throwaway, and that's a darn shame for Sam Worthington. He's a better actor than this forgettable garbage.

Liam Neeson and Jason Statham were not available and they went ahead and made this anyway?
