The Hunt Reviews

It's a sleek, short, well-wrought horror-thriller with buckets of gore, and a sharp performance by Betty Gilpin that deserved far more notice.

The Hunt is a wild, untamed yet enlivening cinematic experience. The dark humor and easy-to-please graphic novel-tinged pulpy violence save the day here.

The Hunt is a wickedly funny, surprisingly gory, dark comedy. Yes, the film is about rich, elite liberals hunting average joe conservatives, but it's not as simple as that.

This Blumhouse social thriller spreads its political, satirical bile on an equal-opportunity basis.

... The Hunt is a romp of a social-satire wrapped up in a stupidly violent package that takes its aim at anyone who sits too far to the left or right of any one perspective.

Cool, fun satire.

The Hunt may turn some viewers off with its thinly-veiled political leanings and somewhat extreme moments of violence, but for those able to accept it as the wild, over-the-top ride that it is, it can be a highly-entertaining and amusing thriller.

As offensive, as fun, as irreverent as it should be. Far from perfect, but this is a kick in the nuts to the politically correct. [Full review in Spanish].

Gilpin is great and Swank is downright deplorable herself as the evil mastermind behind The Hunt. It helps that they are surrounded by a whole bunch of actors that play their parts well.

It's certainly entertaining, but it was also kind of dumb. A mindless action film that you watch to just put something on. To take this movie literally [in a political sense] is nonsense...

Solid performances that had me sold in it. A lot of surprises at the beginning that kept me engaged, and there was never a lull...

The Hunt is a hilarious, blood-soaked rampage through the culture wars that will, believe it or not, leave you a bit more sympathetic to those that may not share your political leanings.

As effective as any satire can be, the story will fall flat without a compelling protagonist to lead the way through. And Betty Gilpin (GLOW) is more than capable of putting the film on her back.

The Hunt is a familiar kill-or-be-killed thriller that is strangely top-heavy in the killing department. Normally, that'd be a mark against it. But it's precisely when the film gets rid of everyone except Gilpin that it starts cooking.

The film's snarky humour is just a ruse to conjure the illusion of controversy. You could say the film offers a cheeky backhander to self-righteousness [but] it would strain any brain to see it as anything but a mischievous piece of splatter cinema.
April 12, 2020
The question of what games the film is playing-shifting realities and relegating performances inside performances-is much more interesting than anything the humans are up to.
April 11, 2020
The multiple surprises, combined with a tight 90 minute run time, makes this an entertainingly fast, if not exactly deep, B-movie.

[The Hunt] is hardly the politically-biased horror film it was dubbed. Instead, it's skewering both sides of the political divide - and all with a healthy, and occasionally bloody, sense of humour.
April 9, 2020
Now you finally can see what all the fuss was about.

A campy and savage film. [Full Review in Spanish]
