[T]he film simply doesn't commit enough to its ideals to be anything other than an incoherent jumble. Thematically, tonally, stylistically - it lacks consistency in every respect.

Given what's going on in the world, who isn't up for an hour and a half of absorbingly inventive, distractingly deranged film fun? The big surprise when it comes to The Hunt is just that.
March 18, 2020
After a shocking 'gotcha' prologue, we're simply dumped with human targets on a killing field, as the hidden left-wing cadre picks them off with bullets, arrows, and grenades.

The violence was indeed over-the-top, and the premise was indeed ridiculous, but the satire missed its target.
March 17, 2020
Everyone else is just a distraction, or mildly satirical color. Blow them away and what's left is cheerfully exploitative entertainment.

This one's not worth risking the spread of coronavirus - stay home and avoid this film like the plague.
March 16, 2020
While there's a lot that works in the film, its main conceit doesn't hold together.
March 16, 2020
It must be said that those viewers seeking pure violence, firearms and repetitive gore will find what they're looking for in "The Hunt." But beneath its pile of guts is a missed opportunity.
March 16, 2020
The horror-comedy The Hunt isn't as clever or controversial as it thinks it is, but Betty Gilpin's committed performance makes it solid B-movie fun.
March 16, 2020
The Hunt is an amusing, lawless crack at current-day politics, but has nothing more to offer than just its societal views and sprays of gunfire.
March 16, 2020
The Hunt is fun, frothy and yet rooted in our wounded world. And if that's not enough to persuade you - Donald Trump hates it.
March 16, 2020
Had it never seen the light of day at all, cinema would have been none the poorer.
March 16, 2020
A collaboration between Universal and Blumhouse this riotously violent horror-comedy deserves its second chance, though ignore critics who tell you it's as sharp as Get Out (that's fake news).
March 16, 2020
That said, I do feel fully qualified to say that The Hunt is a limping dumpster of a film that holds little appeal regardless of your political persuasion.
March 16, 2020
It's a movie that's trying to hold up a mirror to modern America and show us that we all need to come together or we're all going to go off the deep end and do something we really regret. Right message, wrong movie.
March 16, 2020
The film feels like the physical manifestation of the constant war of words on Twitter and other channels. There's subtle, sly points made about the escalation of anger online, and how that's directed at people we've never met.
March 15, 2020
The Hunt is a fun movie to watch even though you might side-eye the concept at first.
March 15, 2020
A discombobulated mass of wishy-wash in which punches are readily pulled in favor of gratuitous slasher-like violence.
March 15, 2020
President Donald Trump's supporters aren't victims, they're victimizers. Shame on "The Hunt" for pandering to one of their most cherished fantasies - that they are persecuted.
March 15, 2020
This is an asinine B-movie, and a harmless one at that.
