Big Game Movie Review:
Big Game is a film which, despite its hackneyed writing, is imbued with charm and humour. Yes, the plot-line doesn’t really bow down to the logic of physics but the story’s endearing quality works as its saving grace. Jackson crisply slips into the role of the American President, who is struck by calamity mid-air, on his way to Helsinki. A ploy to get him assassinated falls flat when a young Finnish boy Oskari (Onni Tommila), who is on a hunting trip that will define his machismo to his community, finds him in the jungle and vows to save his life.
Thereafter, the exceptional camaraderie between two men divided by age and experience who are brought together by fate in an uncanny twist of events, reigns. Their scenes have innocent humour and there are parts that will have you in splits. The point where Oskari meets the President and threatens him with the question, “Which planet are you from?” while mistaking him for an alien, will amuse you.The problem begins when the story takes the convenient route out to things and allows incidents to fit in with way too much ease. The thrill from this affair goes obsolete by the end. Its rapturous climax can qualify as cute but not exciting. For pluses, the film, banking on such a slim story, manages to tie up pretty neatly despite it being extremely far-fetched.Jackson thankfully adopts his nuanced vein and delivers a sincere tongue-in-cheek performance. His young co-actor Tommila is lovable from the word go. Ray Stevenson is impactful as the menacing villain.In its 91 minutes, Big Game can pass for junk cinema to go well with your popcorn. Its picturesque setting, exaggerated lines and well-drawn action sequences are fun while it lasts but not compelling enough to desire a repeat.
