The Hunt – not quite lives up to its hype

In the first half hour, this movie took off with a full blast of energy like a bullet from a fired gun. It looked very promising as an entertaining, and cleverly written modern B movie. Unfortunately, the novelty wore off when the second act roll around to drag down the movie. Switching it from an adrenaline-filled sprint to a park mode. By the time the final third act comes around, me as a viewer, has diminished quite a lot of interest in seeing how the story will play out. Betty Gilpin’s character, as the lead in this film. did not extract empathy from audiences and her character’s back story remains vague by the time end credit rolls. There is supposed to be a twist reveal on the third act but it was not much of a twist in comparison to most recent horror or suspense movies.
