There are a few things in this movie heavily influenced by legendary whitetail deer hunter, Roger Raglin. BKF Productions is similar to Raglin's BKS Productions and there is a scene where this movie borrows music from Roger Raglin's actual hunting videos. See more »
Tolerable father son adventure comedy but really nothing special our outstanding.
A father tries to reunite and connect to his son by going with him on a hunting trip, which is not only showing him about his profession but also a family tradition, but of course the young boy doesnt really care for that.
Yeah the story is noting new or special at all nor is it very inspired. The film however has good qualities in the acting department. Josh Brolin was great and took his role very seriously. Good performance. Also Montana Jordan was pretty good as his son. Danny McBride tolerable as the sidekick. The film had beautiful images and a very nice cinematography.
But besides that it fell rather flat and even at the rather short running time often appeared to be overlong and boring.
The father son thing was predictable and something we saw in dozens of variations hundreds of times on screen already. Still it was not a complete waste of time, but probably could have been much better.
