Thinking Out Loud: The Hunt


Welcome to another edition of the “The Valero Verdict” movie review. In this I will give you a quick movie review with a couple of bullet points of which I either liked or disliked. I will end the review with rating of the movie and a short overall thoughts.

On the docket today, the “controversial” film The Hunt.

Plot: Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don’t know where they are, or how they got there. They don’t know they’ve been chosen – for a very specific purpose – The Hunt.

Oh shit (dude from always sunny) playing an asshole.

Some random dude is on the plane acting…. ummmm sick?

Random stab in the eye with a high heel.

This is going to be fun

So these folks are drugged and brought to a forest.

EMMA ROBERTS I love Emma Roberts

Dramatic score time

Pig came out the crate. Ha.

GUNS ….

EMMA ROBERTS IS DEAD …. head blown off

This guy just came out guns a blazing…. and died. It’s like me playing COD

Ooooooo a snowflake joke

Climate change is real.

He probably uses the N word on Twitter. – (What a TERRIBLE joke, seriously)

Old couple is quite funny and adorable. Cute killing duo.

Betty Gilpin introduction couldn’t have been any better.

Did she really just pull a man twice her size onto the train?

She just ran over dudes head. She’s my hero.

LMFAOOOOO THEY KILLED THE PIG

GILPIN IS A BAD ASS

Swank and Gilpin … this is about to be some fun

I am digging the banter between these two but shit. I spoke too soon.

LETS FIGHT

You need a Gun now bitch, that’s fucking cheating.

HEAD BUTT FROM HELL

the fight scene was bad ass!!!!!

Dramatic scene of love between the two

The Verdict:

*** out of ***** gavels

‘The Hunt’ is not perfect by any means and it has it’s underlining issues but overall the film worked for me. Gilpin showcased why she will be a star for years to come. The writers did a wonderful job of building this film around her and she took it and ran with it.

I was thoroughly frustrated with the reasoning behind ‘The Hunt’, I felt like they could have been more creative on that front.

The film works as a collective whole as a throwaway fun film that keeps you entertained.

Should You See It?: Yes. I do believe I would rent it this weekend. It will be available to rent this coming Friday on VOD for $19.99.
