”Depends on whether they're smart pretending to be idiots or idiots pretending to be smart”

If Craig Zobel’s The Hunt has one issue it is the balance of tone. A menage-a-tois of comedy, horror and action doesn't quite blend to the standard it needs to hit to convey and execute it's political satire. That being said, each individual genre works rather well, explicitly how it juxtaposes the tropes of horror convention. However, the climax falls a little flat in an overly action-oriented farce that never seems to want to end. Furthermore, on reflection it is almost unbelievable that thisfeature has a controversy surrounding it, further reflecting the contextual satire far greater than the film ever could.
