"The Hunt" is what my wife calls "a Jake movie." It is one of those movies that is over-the-top, messy, yet enjoyable. This movie is so sloppy and very pessimistic (although, maybe freakishly accurate) in its portrayal of political ideologies in America. There are two groups of people here, the liberal elite "hunters" and the conservative lower class "huntees." They are both far on their respective political wings. The hunters strategically pick out nearly a dozen huntees to kidnap onto a manor in Croatia where they proceed to hunt them down. One of the huntees is rather smart and skilled and she is our protagonist. There is really no character arc for her at all, we pretty much just watch her kill off the liberal elite hunters and not much more. This movie has a lot to say about politics, but it does it in a messy and not-so-subtle type of way. It really boils down to that both conservative and liberal ideologies in their extremes are stupid and that there needs to be conversation and a middle ground. There is a lot of exposition that tries to convey the movies points about social commentary, but really it is just too forced. The dark humor works very well. I laughed quite a bit, which I was not expecting. the acting is very B-movie-esque, but it works for the most part given this movie's premise. The violence is gory and excessive, but that is enjoyable in a movie of this caliber. The dialogue does it's job but is not deeper, it pretty much is straightforward in it its messages. This is by no means a great movie, it really isn't even a good movie. It is just okay, and it is only okay if you like this type of social satire. I do like the subversion of expectations that takes place by having some better known actors killed off in the early going, kind of like a weird homage to Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" in a weird messed up sort of way. Overall, I give this film a 5.5/10.
