Critic Reviews for The Hunting Party

All Critics (2)

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

July 18, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

The film's failure can be attributed primarily to the unreasonably slow pace and surfeit of ridiculous plot twists...
