What are critics saying?

50

IndieWire by David Ehrlich

An energetic yet hopelessly convoluted espionage thriller that doesn’t tell a story so much as it chronically bumps into one. ... Lee’s debut is little more than a chattering Pez dispenser full of plot twists.

Total Film by Neil Smith

At two hours and change Hunt definitely outstays its welcome, while it’s disappointing Lee has room for only two notable female characters. If you are up for some robust, relentless, blood-splattered mayhem, though, it’s well worth hunting down when it makes its way into cinemas.

Variety by Peter Debruge

A twisty, action-packed political thriller — one that keeps you guessing even as it spirals into ever-crazier realms.

Slashfilm by Rafael Motamayor

Lee does a commendable job as a first-time feature director, with a confinement sense of pace and framing that keeps "Hunt" thrilling and engaging despite its 131-minute runtime. ... Though "Hunt" does not break the spy thriller mold, it does provide plenty of thrills that should play like gangbusters.

TheWrap by Steve Pond

A dense and bloody spy thriller with enough twists, turns, double agents, defectors and buried secrets to confuse even viewers who know the geopolitical players without a scorecard. For those of us who are struggling to figure out who’s who and where their sympathies lie on the fly, it can get downright impenetrable.

Screen Daily by Tim Grierson

The plotting may sometimes be convoluted, but the picture rolls along so forcefully that its familiar genre trappings hardly hamper the proceedings.
