Brit director Ed Boase aims wide in his feature debut, a mockumentary based on animal-rights activists’ actions, but too thin to pass as provocation or drama.
Five friends recall a Highlands trip led by pro-hunting Lucas Bell (Nick Ashdon), where they were drugged, stripped and shot at by anti-hunting activists making a viral video.
A cleverly conceptual premise, but mounting hysteria muddies Boase’s take on extremism and several over-scripted talking-head sequences detach us from the characters’ situation. We know they live, so where’s the tension?
Not much meat on this beast.
