The Hunt is every bit as stupid as it looks and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s over the top Twitter political comment fight come to gruesome life is goofy and ham handed. A bit of subtleness would have made this film just a tad bit more meaningful but as it’s an Itchy and Scratchy cartoon come to life. In the first few minutes you sense every strand of it’s Grindhouse origin, it owes a lot to the 80s splatterfest
