Leo Brady reviews “Get Duked” on AMovieGuy.com

Surviving in the wilderness is not my thing either. However, I might enjoy the open air if I was with a few friends- in whatever capacity that is. But in Get Duked! having friends, no matter how wild they are, might make the experience worth it. Writer/director Ninian Doff has made a bit of his own British version of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, where he plucks four wreckless high school boys, and gives them the “punishment” of participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Wilderness games. Think of it as a Boy Scout excursion, where kids get a map, carry supplies, and must hit various checkpoints, all to win the “coveted” Duke of Edinburgh trophy. That’s much easier said than done with this group. Dean (Rian Gordon), Duncan (Lewis Gribben), DJ Beatroot (Viraj Juneja), and Ian (Samuel Bottomley) are a foursome of outcasts, hoping to meander through the trek, until they start getting hunted by a group of older Duke of Edinburgh winners. It turns into a mad dash expedition, with embarrassing falls, drug hallucinations, and a bit of teamwork along the way. By the end, you will be ready to Get Duked!
