The Hunting Party Reviews

Page 1 of 5
Joshua Starnes
ComingSoon.net

It's not a bad story as far as it goes, and says a lot about the strange culture war journalism ... [but] no story, no matter how interesting, can't do without a little bit of the Hollywood treatment, and "The Hunting Party" suffers that in spades.

Features some truly outrageous events.... But filmmaker Shepard struggles to avoid action and comedy cliches

The Scorecard Review

The most intriguing parts of this film are contained in the voice-over montage in the beginning and a surprise ending, leaving a lot of filler in the middle.

I.E. Weekly

Ludicrous, bewildering, and largely true (at least the "most ridiculous parts" according to the film's preface), it plays like an adventure story written by Kafka

Gere has so much fun in his role it's almost unfair that he was paid for his efforts.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...the cinematic equivalent of a loud and goofy garage band that hasn't quite mastered the art of staying in tune but sometimes hits you right in the happy zone.

Whenever the film threatens to get bogged down in self-seriousness, Shepard quickly retreats to satiric cynicism.

Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Gere is almost unmatched at portraying wacky characters like Hunt. He is so charismatic that you believe he can charm, manipulate and/or con just about anyone.

It's a funny, horrible story (with black humor of the sort many war correspondents write about), shot mostly in Croatia and nicely paced.

Salt Lake Tribune

Writer-director Richard Shepard's humor is tempered by a deadly serious undercurrent.

September 21, 2007

Hopefully, The Hunting Party will find the success it needs to keep Shepard making off-center movies because Hollywood doesn't always reward hard-to-categorize films like this one.

...it does make room for the latest, loose-screw character part in the reinvention of Gere's career.

It's easy to get lost in the movie's zingy blend of the serious and the ironic.

As they say, the difference between movies and real life is that real life does not have to make sense. And that is what it takes to make crazy times real to us in a way that the truth cannot convey.

...The Hunting Party derives much of its tension from watching seemingly 'normal' people doing seriously insane stuff.
