Director Craig Zobel’s satirical horror-thriller is based on Richard Connell's 1924 short story "The Most Dangerous Game." The film stars Betty Gilpin, Emma Roberts, Ethan Suplee, Ike Barinholtz, and Hilary Swank. Twelve strangers wake up to find themselves in a remote and deserted clearing, at the mercy of a group of globalist elites who have gathered to hunt them down for sport. One woman (Gilpin) fights ferociously for her life, eventually turning the tables on the hunters.~Augustine Chay
The Hunt lets us see a real "them against us" turn into physical violence, the 2 sides being some upper class managerial types tired of the lower working class who keep complaining and making up conspiracies. Neither side looks virtuous, but maybe the working class have the advantage in looking noble, since it's the upper class that initiate the violence.
This movie may be a warning about where we're heading in our polarized society.
This movie was almost never released, but I’m sure glad that it was. I missed it the one week it ran in theaters, but I purchased it the day it came out. Politics aside, this is one entertaining movie. The dark humor is an excellent touch, and the story is original and open-ended. This movie is not politically offensive, but does play into biases to make for a more engaging story. I would say it’s easily one of the best horror movies of 2019/2020
This film is one of the few that light heartily makes fun of BOTH political sides. It's just satire and I did not get the controversy the media put on the film. The violence was no more over the top or gratuitous than most action films today.
If you enjoy dark and mature humor, action and smart writing then you will enjoy this film. It isn't too long or short in length and it never gets boring. The cast is great and everyone just seems to enjoy their roles.
Hilarious new comedy. It was one of the last movies I saw in theaters before the pandemic, so I was eager for it to come out. Dark satire and hilarious moments all throughout while still having plenty of action. I wish there was a steelbook, but other than that, fantastic copy.
My wife and I were able to see this movie in our local movie theater and were happy we were able to purchase it at a good price from BestBuy and really enjoyed watching it and we are looking forward to watching it as often as we want.
I loved this film and was happy to support it by picking up the blu ray. Such a good time.
I was surprised that it did not get the 4k treatment. Oh, well. The blu ray looks good enough, it doesnt necessarily need a 4k transfer. This is a great looking disc and I would use it to demo my display.
The premise of this movie was supposed to be really controversial in light of the current state of affairs in this Country. The only difference between this movie and others just like it, such as the movie, Get Out, is the political affiliation of both the 'hunters' and the 'hunted'. Other than that, this really isn't an 'award-winning' movie, but it is sort of entertaining.
This is a very gory movie that takes shots at both sides of the political spectrum. So we have a solid female heroine who works herself up to a great boss fight. Love it and if it offends you then it is about you.
