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.

... this explosive bloodfest is equal parts education and entertainment... an ultra-violent allegory within an allegory where everyone is a target, both literally and literarily.
March 15, 2020
...[a] shoddy survivalist exploitation flick...not grounded in depth or dimension to give this blurry slice-and-dice suspense piece any genuine meaty intrigue beyond its choppy pokes at exaggerated blood spats and occasional schlocky chuckles.

The Hunt's final act pits Swank and Gilpin in a fairly impressive and epic battle of wills.

Undeniably provocative. This is an example of why no one should ever judge a movie without actually having seen it first. The Hunt is not an anti-conservative picture. It mocks everyone equally.

It feels more like an installment of "The Purge" but with both sides decimated.
March 14, 2020
a survivalist horror satire skewering the worst elements of both sides of the U.S. political divide... more popcorn entertainment with some gore ladled on than a serious attempt to get people thinking

Above all dumb political concerns, this is a "humans being hunted" movie, and it's a pretty good one.
March 14, 2020
Filled with schlocky, blood-splattered mayhem, it's insufferably angry exploitation. Keep your distance.

Betty Gilpin slays us all in an offbeat companion piece to this week's full 'worm' moon, Friday the 13th, and the really scary C19 virus. You might laugh a bit, too.
March 14, 2020
An intriguing litmus test for audiences, The Hunt amuses with its provocatively ambiguous political stance, even if the genre film underneath is relatively boilerplate thriller fare.
March 14, 2020
The Hunt is an entertaining, sign-of-the-times satire that pokes fun at both parties. Maybe the movie should instead be called Betty Gilpin because she makes it her own.
March 14, 2020
The only thing worth discussing about "The Hunt" is the genius of Betty Gilpin. The story is too pat, and flat, to invite any real discussion with, or about it, but Gilpin offers up a performance that you won't be able to shake.

A blistering sore of a production and a political party pooper.
March 14, 2020
Despite the violence, in the end it's just a feel-good movie, comedic in nature, as one bad guy after another gets what everyone in the audience thinks is deserved.
March 14, 2020
Let me be blunt: If The Hunt is what passes for satire in 2020, as I think it may, then we're all - pardon my French - completely screwed.
March 13, 2020
The Hunt finally gets its chance to poke fun at the absurdity of identity politics. And boy does it deliver the goods!
March 13, 2020
It's regrettable that, despite all of its jabs at relevance, the movie has no desire to actually dig into the details of the anger felt by either side of the bloodsport event it imagines.
March 13, 2020
It's really a self-pitying right-wing fantasy of victimization at the hands of liberals, featuring plenty of extremely gory violence, much of it against women.
