The profession of bounty hunters is a favourite subject for the movies. Bounty Hunters are tough and hard to kill, and they can find anyone. Inspired by the release of “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” with the kick ass duo of Renner and Aterton, we take a look at some of the coolest bounty hunters on film.

Now grown-up as bounty hunters, after getting a taste for blood as children, Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) have become the ultimate vigilantes, hell bent on retribution.  Now, unbeknownst to them, Hansel and Gretel have become the hunted, and must face an evil far greater than witches...their past.

Domino Harvey

A recounting of the true story of Domino Harvey's life, by the great director  Tony Scott.  The daughter of actor Laurence Harvey turned away from her career as a Ford model to become a bounty hunter. One of her favourite tricks was to pretend to flirt with male fugitives in sleazy nightclubs and then, at the right moment, stick a gun in their ribs. But Domino Harvey also struggled with drugs. She died in 2005, at age 35, shortly before the debut of a movie based on her exploits.


True Grit

One for the Money
Director: Julie Anne Robinson

Despite having no equipment, training or particular skill Stephanie becomes a bail enforcement agent, chasing after a high stakes bail jumper: Joe Morelli, a former vice cop who is wanted for murder.
In the midst of the chase, Stephanie has to deal with her meddling family, a problematic tendency of witnesses who die when she gets too close, and lessons in bounty hunting from the mysterious Ranger. When she finally catches up to Morelli, she realizes that the case against him doesn't add up and that the old flame from their school days may just be rekindling.


Django Unchained
Director: Quentin Tarantino
Writer: Quentin Tarantino
Stars: Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. 

Now all we need is that rumoured Boba Fett movie to come to the big screen and we’ll have arguably the greatest bounty hunter of all time!
