"The Hunt"....

... is not a new movie.  The movie may be new but the plot almost certainly isn't:
in 1993 we had "Hard Target" with Jean-Claude Van Damme,
and in 1994 we saw "Surviving the Game" starring Ice-T, Rutger Hauer, Charles S Dutton and Nick Nolte and more.

Spoiler alert, here's the plot:
1.  Bad guys "entice" good guy into their game.
2.  Too late to back out, the good guy is informed they are the prey and given a head start.
3.  Good guy picks off the bad guys one by one until only the leader remains.
4.  Good guy tricks head bad guy into offing himself in an amusing/ironic way.
5.  Roll credits.

"The Hunt" trailer suggests this well worn plot, but with minor tweaks and political labels attached to the "good-guys" and "bad-guys".
