What to know

critics consensus

Big Game's enthusiastic throwback vibe will appeal to fans of low-budget '80s action movies, but co-writer/director Jalmari Helander adds a level of smarts and skill that make it more than just an homage. Read critic reviews

    A very safe film that doesn't attempt anything grand or epic, definitely a throwback to the 80s. The casting of Jackson might have been better had the film gone for the hard R rating instead of the please all rating we ended up with. The film has its moments and some of the chemistry is between the likable stars. I thought the film was fun and the filmmaker has a huge future in the action genre, some of the special effects scenes top some of Hollywood's lacklustre efforts. The film never forgets its characters and has a lot of fun along the way. You can do much worse than checking out this action film. 30/10/2018.

    The film moves fast and is so much fun that you won't notice the flaws.

    Big Game is stupid to the point that it's entertaining. It runs fast enough that it kept my attention enough that I can recall the story. I can see what they were going for, but it all went wrong in the writing and nobody bothered fixing it through production and filming. Samuel Jackson's talents with profanity are handicapped by the PG-13 rating. Tommila, the boy in the film, does an OK job, but nobody else is worth mentioning. I watched it for free on a movie channel and that seemed about right. I wouldn't pay for Big Game, but it's a decent enough way to kill the time.
