Storyline

Louis visits several privately owned reserves in South Africa where American tourists pay to hunt wild animals. He talks to an American couple of which the husband considers the hunting trip a dream and to the owners of the reserves who explain Louis that some species would be already extinct if it wasn't for the game reserves. Louis also accompanies some hunters and considers trying to kill an animal himself. He also wonders if it's not a rather artificial hunt, considering the animals are in a, very large, cage and the holiday hunters are being driven to the place where the animals can be found.

Anti Captive Hunting Reviewers - Take a pill or something, He's on your side.
23 September 2009 | by (The Moon) – See all my reviews

Yo, over enthusiatic anti-captive hunting reviewers, there was NO WAY that anyone can watch this show and not be against stupid captive hunting. And that's exactly what Louis portrayed. He looked physically ill most of the show, and at no point did he not push people to explain why they would do such a cruel and useless thing.

Just because he didn't do a hard hitting documentary as you wish, doesn't make it a problem.

He wasn't trying to show facts and figures like you want, he just did a great job of showing the ignorance and insensitivity of the participants. When he asked some of them what their limits were, and they had NONE - that gets the point across pretty well.

Go watch it again, and try to figure out your allies better next time.
