    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A complete bust, but the ways in which it fails are interesting. show more

    When a movie is a hybrid of this sort, it can be tough to strike just the right tone. Mostly, The Hunting Party manages. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Throw in some business with the CIA, add a small army of Serbian thugs and a mysterious Croatian beauty, and The Hunting Party picks up speed, careening through the forests where the Fox may or may not be hiding out. Whatever fate awaits, it can't be good. But it can be fun. show more

    Everything about this political thriller is ridiculous. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Writer-director Richard Shepard assembles all the elements for a dark suspense comedy only to lose his way in a surfeit of plot mechanics and unlikely behavior. show more

    Stephen Cole The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The Hunting Party does a good job of illustrating Winston Churchill's observation, "There is nothing more exhilarating than to be shot at without result." show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    The title of The Hunting Party doesn’t evoke much in particular. “War Correspondents Gone WILD!” would be more like it if the film itself--messy, but fairly stimulating--had more of the scamp in its soul. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    By the time the end credits roll, you're still not sure what kind of movie The Hunting Party is supposed to be, other than just queasy. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Shepard, who directed "The Matador" and the pilot for "Ugly Betty," can't quite get the disparate elements of The Hunting Party to mesh into a satisfying whole. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    A dismal misfire that attempts to make black comedy out of the adventures of war correspondents and the dirty business of international politics. show more

    An exciting thoroughly enjoyable film about the tensions in Bosnia, Serbia and Montenegro. An accurate analysis of the political scene that remains from the end of the Yugoslav civil war.While the premise is a little farfetched it still smacks of reality.Go see it!

    Half the critics don't know what they're talking about. Movie was terriffic. Acting by all was spot on. Plot not entirely believable, but makes you think about the dumb back room deals undoubtedly made by governments/politicians. GO SEE IT.

    This is a poignant drama with just enough laughs to keep it real. Terrence Howard does some fine work on camera and as the narrator. Richard Gere is adequate. The new guy does well.Film raises some good questions about international politics and back room deals.
