Critic Reviews for The Hunting Party

Miss Bergen, mostly without tricks and without reservations, plainly succeeds with a part that is not so much a character as a test of character.

Seldom has so much fake blood been splattered for so little reason.

Not just tripe, but a production that is also lewd and crude.

A very poor British attempt to imitate an Italian western by shooting it in Spain and splattering blood all over the countryside. A fine cast is totally wasted in this film.

The Hunting Party" is no picnic. It is a gory western for audiences with strong stomachs. It also is pretentious.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

A vile revenge Western with a tired plot, too much gore and a miscalculated pretentiousness.
