Critic Reviews for The Tiger Hunter

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

As a feel good dramatic comedy, The Tiger Hunter hits most of the right notes while only sounding a few sour ones.

September 22, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

There's enough good-naturedness and cultural specificity here, alongside a slight deviation from the usual immigrant narratives, to render it a dollop of sweetness and novelty that goes down easy.

Top Critic

There has been no shortage of films tracking the immigrant pursuit of the American dream, but few have been as laugh-out-loud delightful as "The Tiger Hunter," a sparkling first feature by Lena Khan.

An encouraging look at the American Dream, at a time when it too often seems like a nightmare.

September 21, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"The Tiger Hunter" might balk at the harsher details of immigrant life, but it has a generosity of spirit that lifts everyone up.

September 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Immigrant stories certainly don't demand tragedy to be legitimate, but The Tiger Hunter, with its pastiche of fish-out-of-water comedy and pointy collared shirts, ultimately feels weightless.
