The Hunt (2020)

dir. Craig Zobel. Very glad I didn’t see this in the cinema. Scattered with unfunny political “humor”, giving it a veneer of political satire, but doesn’t seem to be satirizing anything. I had high hopes for this after the initial teaser trailer, which promised more of a dystopian satire, with elements of 1980s Schwarzenegger film, THE RUNNING MAN (1987), but it fails miserably. Even the blood and gore is uninspired and routine.
