Cool movie with an excellent unknown Betty Gilpin in the lead role.
Quite entertaining, bloody horror thriller "satire", not unlike Ready Or Not from last year. Strong lead. I was surprised how politically incorrect the concept is; big studios avoid such dangerous stuff for many years now. Realizing the script was probably already delicate in 2019/20 and I think that in how 2021 started for America, no one would touch it anymore. Lucky for Blumhouse, I guess.
Any moment I started to reflect on what The Hunt's actual message is, I was afraid the ideas behind it are rather dumb, so I'll just view it as an little, edgy 90-minute Battle Royale rip-off other than a profound allegory on the increasing division of the USA.
It doesn't work very well as an political satire... but as a modern / new cinematic adaptation of Richard Connells "The Most Dangerous Game" really worth seeing.
Also liked Betty Gilpins great performance and the
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
