The Hunt

The Hunt ★★★

For what its worth, it's not horrible. Not even mediocre. The first half of the film is a bit janky as it kinda shifts from a bunch of different perspectives and it's unclear who we're following but after the first 20 minutes we first find our protagonist. The first half also has most of our more political dialogue between the minor characters which mostly consists of surface level, facebook conversation-esque discourse. After that, once more of the action scenes begin to take place the movie begins to speed up a lot and becomes a lot more fun, with Betty Gilpin doing an excellent job. I also give props that this didn't just steal from The Hunger Games in certain aspects as that would have dragged this down a bit.
We never do get to know to what alt right tendencies Emma Stone holds to have landed her in this situation though.
