Thanks to all of you who added to my list, and I can see I have some movies to add to my queue!

"Hard Target" (my favorite Van Damme movie) also qualifies, with its human hunters tracking their prey after giving them a sportsmanlike head start.

That movie, imho, was loosely based on this movie.

Hmmm...not only have I never heard of this movie, I also don't recognize any of the actors.

I'll add that to my line-up -- thanks!

I Know What You Did Last Summer - I'm surprised nobody mentioned it. It has the best chase scene in horror film history!

49th Parallel.

Michael Powell's 49th Parallel (originally released in the United States as The Invaders) is one of the great thrillers of World War II. It ranks alongside Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent as one of the two finest amalgams of suspense and propaganda to grace the big screen during the years 1939-45.
The film's plot is simplicity itself: during 1941, a German submarine raiding Canadian coastal waters is sunk by Royal Canadian Air Force bombers, but six survivors attempt to reach safety in the then-neutral United States. Along the way, as they flee from the manhunt in their wake, they meet a cross-section of Canadians -- French, Scottish, Eskimo, German, Native American, and English -- in a series of encounters that are alternately lyrical, humorous, and savage.

49th Parallel is more than a mere thriller, however, and was far more important than its two Oscar nominations -- including Best Picture -- and Academy Award for Best Original Story would indicate. Begun during the darkest days of World War II, immediately after the fall of France, it set a standard for filmmaking that transformed British cinema during the war and ultimately altered it forever.
