    I walked away [thinking] that was enjoyable, but maybe it didn't have as sharp of teeth as it could have.

    [T]he film simply doesn't commit enough to its ideals to be anything other than an incoherent jumble. Thematically, tonally, stylistically - it lacks consistency in every respect.

    Given what's going on in the world, who isn't up for an hour and a half of absorbingly inventive, distractingly deranged film fun? The big surprise when it comes to The Hunt is just that.
