Silent Hunter is a 1995 American-Canadian action movie directed by Fred Williamson. After wife and daughter of Miami police detective and former Navy SEAL Jim Parandine (Miles O'Keeffe) are killed during the bank heist, Jim abandons service and lives as a hermit in snow-covered mountains near Canadian border.
