The Hunt

The Hunt ★★★½

Pretty fun, mindless entertainment. Lots of violence too (duh), but the effects are really hit-or-miss and that really dampens things sometimes. I’m sure there’s supposed to be satire or a message or something here, but it doesn’t really matter? (It’s like a reverse Purge situation or something.) Also it has an incredibly strong start only to slam to a complete halt like halfway through - and that’s really tough to recover from - but it manages to eventually! Betty Gilpin is such an unexpected, yet wonderful choice. She’s the real rock star here, and she practically carries the entire movie on her back. I wish there was more Hilary Swank too. She’s great.
