Movie Info

Dean, Duncan and DJ Beatroot are teenage pals from Glasgow who embark on the character-building camping trip -- based on a real-life program -- known as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, where foraging, teamwork and orienteering are the order of the day. Eager to cut loose and smoke weed in the Scottish Highlands, the trio finds themselves paired with straight-laced Ian, a fellow camper determined to play by the rules. After veering off-path into remote farmland that's worlds away from their urban comfort zone, the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy force hell-bent on extinguishing their futures. From writer-director Ninian Doff -- making his feature debut after a slew of award-winning music videos and short films for artists including Run the Jewels, Miike Snow, Migos, and Mykki Blanco -- comes an anarchic satire of generational politics, hip-hop loving farmers and hallucinogenic rabbit droppings that pits the youth of tomorrow against the status quo of yesterday.

It's fun and the satire has a bit of depth to it, even if the movie never quite carves out its own identity.

Top Critic

Get Duked! is good stoner comedy fun, and quite the promising debut from a rookie filmmaker.

August 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Get Duked! isn't lacking confidence. But all the aesthetic bells and whistles tend to distract from the fact that there isn't much of a center, or story, here.

[M]anic energy can only get you so far before the film's unapologetic amateurism becomes deadening and mildly insulting.

August 28, 2020 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The plot, such as it is, makes little sense until the end, long past the point of anyone caring.
