Blu-ray Release: Big Game

August 25, 2015

Big Game Blu-rayAfter premiering during Midnight Madness at TIFF last year, Elevation Pictures is releasing Big Game on Blu-ray today.  Sent out to prove himself as a man on his thirteenth birthday, young hunter Oskari (Onni Tomilla) stumbles upon President William Moore (Samuel L. Jackson) in the middle of the wilderness in Finland, after Air Force One is taken down by terrorists.

Director Jalmari Helander does a fine job of staging this all in the form of a loving throwback to summer afternoon entertainment from a few decades ago.  With the feel of something that Amblin Entertainment could have produced back in the 1980s, Big Game is a ridiculously entertaining coming of age thriller, that deserves a wider audience of both young teens and adults.  My full review is right here.

The Blu-ray includes both theatrical and unrated versions of the film.

Big Game is 98 minutes and rated PG.
