The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (July 2018) Some of you won’t like this only because the background story is deer hunting, however, if that is the case you will miss a good movie. (thirteen and over please) This is a coming of age story about a twelve-year-old, Jayden, (Montana Jordan) who doesn’t see his dad very often because of divorce. This actually is an Action/Adventure story!

His father, Buck Ferguson (Josh Brolin) is a Youtube deer hunter with some pretty good videos, making him famous in the world of hunting. He suddenly wants to bond with his Marriot type son, cell phones, guitars, x-box. To do this, he wants to take the boy on a hunting trip. Imagine being a Marriot Hotel type boy out in the wilderness, and I do mean wilderness, none of this state park stuff for Buck.

This won’t go over well. Add that to the fact that is maybe soon-to-be stepfather spoils the boy with things the boy’s dad does not approve of, such as an M16 fully automatic rifle with all the trimmings. Buck, of course, prefers a 30.06 single shot rifle, what real deer hunters use.

Along for the ride is Bucks sidekick and videographer Don (Danny McBride). He adds some fun to the trip and a lot of trouble.

The acting was over the top, Brolin played his part exceptionally well, newcomer Montana Jordan was right on target with his acting and expressions. Kids like this make you want to have more kids…. No, forget that you may end up with the spawn of Satan. Just rent a sweet kid when you need one.

I rate this 4 out of 5 stars and hope you take the time to watch it. Actually, it is a family film, if everyone in the family is thirteen or above. Rated TV-14.

    I really can’t fault any of the acting and the scenery was breathe-taking. The story line between the father-son relationship was well done. Based on the opening sequence I thought this was going to be a comedy. In some ways it was, but the humor was a bit subtle for me.
    If you’re interested in hunting and outdoor living I’m sure you’ll enjoy and can relate to some of the situations. The hunting was, however, a pretext for developing the father-son story. The photographer Donny was, I guess, supposed to be funny, but I found him to be one step away from being a child molester which I found to be creepy and distracted from the story. It only confirmed the stereotype of the Southern sexual predator.
    I would have to give this 3.5 stars out of 5, because although there were positive things in the film, I have no real interest in watching it again.

    I found the movie to be comedic, with some subtle one-liners, that was my type of humour and I laughed a lot. OK, I didn’t really agree with the deer hunting but that wasn’t the point of the story and it was hidden well.
    It was different than other movies and enjoyable throughout 🙂

    This looks very funny and will definitely watch it if I get the chance, but I don’t have Netflix so…
