      The Hunt Reviews

      I really enjoyed watching The Hunt and I’m grateful that the film was actually released. I understand the worries that people had, but most of the talk surrounding this film that got it canceled was a bit excessive.

      There is definitely a cutting satire to be made here... yet the film ends up taking potshots at so many subjects that it just ends up missing its targets. Rather than an impressive trophy kill, the end result is a disappointing flesh wound

      Craig Zobel’s The Hunt purports to be a satire, but I am unconvinced its makers know precisely what they are satirising.

      The Hunt is a clever, gory good time. In a perverse way, it’s about unity and coming together.

      The idea at the core of “The Hunt” is a worthy one. We could certainly use a clear-eyed reminder of how toxic and sectarian our political discourse has become. I’m just not sure this is the movie to do it.

      By skewering everyone, deserving or not, the film skewers no one. If you’re going to make a satire promising to anger everyone, you should come with a more insightful script.

      The Hunt offers two or three sequences that genuinely impress but too few surprises to extend its novelty for the entire 89-minute runtime.

      despite lofty ambitions, The Hunt is too keen to be embraced by the widest possible audience to land any killer blows to anyone

      Betty Gilpin does such a fantastic job in The Hunt. We don't know a lot about her character (and there is a reason for that). She doesn't speak a lot, but when she does, she will surprise you.

      People relying solely on the trailers or the outraged articles have only a surface-level of the movie. But the movie's not that deep, either.

      The Hunt is entertaining but despairing.

      While the purpose of the film might be lost, the humor and action is easily found. There is a lot of fun to be had with these idiotic characters (on both sides) and the gruesome, sometimes, shocking deaths they experience.

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | Jun 23, 2021

      The film is definitely political. However, it's not quite as black-and-white as pundits want you to believe. Ultimately, I don't think it matters where you fall on the political spectrum; The Hunt is a fun flick.

      The Hunt is nothing more than a live-action cartoon where [all characters] are painted in such broad strokes that it's impossible to mistake it for anything resembling substantive.

      Action and gore revel in blood-soaked splendour...triumphs...thanks to a sharply constructed premise that offers a piercing assessment on the American political divide.

      THE HUNT is a comedy (with horror elements)... It's a satire, but a satire that you might not be all that comfortable with.

      While you'd hope The Hunt is a smart movie that occasionally behaves like a dumb one, the opposite is true.

      As funny and vivid as it is opportunistic.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Feb 24, 2021

      Empty, pandering, and thoughtless. [...] As far as political comedy is concerned, we get enough low-hanging fruit on social media, and at least some of it makes us laugh.

      Full Review | Feb 17, 2021

      This gleefully trashy, superficial satire takes shotgun aim at both Democrats and Republicans for their stereotypical assumptions about, and thin-skinned fury at, each other.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
