2.0 out of 5 stars Great beginning, but... December 11, 2009
The Hunt (Fritz Kiersch, 2006)

I've been trying to write a review of The Hunt for, according to my spreadsheet, almost exactly a month now. (I watched it on November 11 and I'm writing this on December 9.) I've started it three or four times, and then it sizzles out about halfway through. I like the parallel that makes to the movie, actually, which starts off in a kind of slow-but-awesome mode and then degenerates into a weird mishmash of survival horror and sci-fi before jumping right off a cliff in the final minutes.

Made in mockumentary format (in the same "here's this video we found" mode as The Blair Witch Project et al.), The Hunt is the parallel stories of a trio of guys who go into a private land-lease they've rented in order to make a hunting video and the frantic efforts of one guy's ex-wife and her new husband to find out what happened to them. The hunters are played by Joe Michael Burke (Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles), Mitchell Burns (Pearl), and Robert Rusler (The Whole Ten Yards), while the frantic ex-wife (of Burke's character) and her husband are Amy Briede (Surveillance) and the ubiquitous Cliff DeYoung (Last Flight Out).

It's the trying-to-find-the-guys scenes that make this movie worth watching. DeYoung is by far the most experienced of the actors in this flick, and that's obvious. That part of the script is better-written, as well; we get a real sense of creeping dread as Briede and DeYoung's characters encounter roadblock after roadblock in their investigation, and then try and figure out why everyone who lives in the area is so close-mouthed about the history of disappearances in the area.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hunting for a good movie? This isn't it September 8, 2007
The blurb on the back of the DVD case compares this film to Blair Witch and Predator. While it is true all 3 films had actors, were filmed with cameras and are available on DVD, this is about as far as the comparsion can go. This film was boring, pure and simple. I was actually rooting for the deer the whole time, I was hoping he would get some help from the other forest creatures and turn the tables on "handsome man", "whiny brat" and "jerky drunk". I've seen better films on Youtube, don't waste your time on this fetid pile of garbage.

I always remember that "Star Trek" was sold as "'Wagon Train' to the stars" and that "Miami Vice" was simply "MTV cops" to the network. "Hollywood," by which I mean the entire entertainment industry, always likes to pass off something old as something new. They are never interested in breaking new ground, just in making more money, and God forbid that they do not have ample cinematic references to make them feel that they on the right track. On our end of the entertainment universe we only get to watch these things, but it is fun to work on the cinematic math on a movie. For example, "The 13th Warrior" equals "The Seven Samurai" plus "Beowulf" with "Clan of the Cave Bear" thrown in for fun. I bring this all up because it does not take you long to figure out that "The Hunt" equals "The Blair Witch Project" meets "The Most Dangerous Game" via "The X-Files" (if you are old enough to remember "The Most Dangerous Game" substitute "The Twilight Zone" for the "X-Files," but if you have never heard of "The Most Dangerous Game" think of something more recent like "The Eliminator" or "Hostel" instead, although the flip in the story reminds me of "Audition" these days).

3.0 out of 5 stars Son of Blair Witch Project May 4, 2008
So-so beer and pretzel movie. B-grade movie, decent acting. Movie starts slowly, but the suspense builds and actually did hold my interest once the characters got in the woods to hunt deer. Once there, the hunters become the hunted. I enjoyed the "surprise" ending too, although it was somewhat predictable. Worth renting for a weekend evening if you don't have anything better to do.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fences are there for a reason August 4, 2008
I have to admit that I'm a fan of some thriller/horror/slasher/sci-fi flicks, but I didn't get this one. I happen to like Predator, and I thought Blair Witch was good by playing on a different set of fears than the usual movies in this genre. This movie basically came across to me as a one hour and ten minute family drama tacked on to an instructional bow-hunting buildup to 7 minutes of transparent effects. We kept checking the remaining time, trying to figure out how they were going to squeeze any action into it.

They didn't.

And, just because the fence is bent up, don't go under it.

It was boring plot it took forever to get to the plot. Would've been better if they just added more suspense!

This movie is down right awful. There is no need to watch it unless you are head over heals for aliens.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a better movie than I could make!
The acting is fine, with the kid being the best. The story was good but they held off on the effects way too long. I've seen far worse and am not sorry I sat through it

If you choose to watch The Hunt (and I'm not saying you shouldn't,) you may want to invest in some hair plugs. You're going to spend the bulk of the film scratching your head. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Acting
I found the acting to be excellent given the plot was weak at times. Overall, I rate it as a very good movie.
