Co-scripted by Damon Lindelof (Watchmen) and produced by Jason Blum (The Invisible Man), this survival shocker has the dubious distinction of being one of the most controversial movies in the US this year.
Its release was postponed following a series of mass shootings, and it also raised the ire of Republicans, who are cast as the victims in a savage political satire. The Hunt is a new take on an old formula – if you’ve seen Turkey Shoot or Hard Target, you’ll already know we’re in ‘hunting humans’ territory here. But there are still plenty of surprises, not least an incredible face-off between gutsy female leads Betty Gilpin and Hilary Swank. Putting the ‘red’ into red states, The Hunt delivers fast and furious action, gratuitous violence, and satire that’s as sharp as a knife.
