One of the best foreign films I've seen!

The wannabe critics are at it again smh... comparing this film to big budget Hollywood blockbusters with A-list actors.

I will critique this film for what it is... an independent low budget foreign B-grade film with C-list no name actors, a novice writer, and a director who's only experience is a TV series and this film. A well deserved 9/10!

Right from the start, the directing of this film could have not been better. It's far superior than most of the big Hollywood experienced directors have been putting out lately. The close ups, angles, capture moments and scenic shots were outstanding. The cinematography was sheer perfection. The acting by almost all cast members, especially Leandie du Randt, was great. The writing could have been tighter, but still decent. The pacing could have been a little faster, but still good enough to hold my attention throughout the entire film. The length was perfect. I'm not a fan of subtitles, but going in knowing this was a foreign film, the lack of too much dialogue made the subtitles bearable.

Overall this film was a fun ride, produced very well. I recommend this film, and go into it knowing it's a low budget foreign film - and not comparing it to Hollywood blockbusters, and you will enjoy this as much as I did!

A South African Masterpiece!

It is movies like this that shows what South African actors are really made of. The movie is based on a book written by South African legend Deon Meyer. The acting is superb, the story is amazing, and it leaves you in awe at the end. A definite must for action/thriller fans.

Don't mess with Emma......

Hunting Emma is one of those "surprises" you come across in cinema once in a while. On first inspection this looks like a "I Spit on Your Grave" knock off. Thankfully, its not.

Better yet its a really enjoyable South African flavoured take on the survivalist horror genre. This film works well first and foremost because its story holds together convincingly well.

There's a well thought out back story that explains Emma's ability to take on what would, for most people, be insurmountable odds. This is married up with Emma's other advantage, her superior knowledge of the environment, which her hunters fail to fully appreciate, until its too late.

There is predictably a lot of violence on offer but what's refreshing is its not overstated or gratuitous. Indeed, the emphasis here is on Emma's survival. She does what she does primarily because she wants to live.

The fight scenes in this film are plentiful, polished and sit comfortably alongside decent gun play, which includes a tongue in cheek nod to Spaghetti Western style showdowns.

If you like the idea of survivalist horror but want something "dialled down" then Hunting Emma is for you. 7/10 from me.
