I hadn’t heard of Bounty Killer till a couple of YouTubers (Coolduder, Wetmovie1) mentioned the film in their usual DVD and Blu-ray round-ups. The title alone intrigued me, after all I had enjoyed the previous “bounty hunter” flicks I’d seen: Michael Dudikoff’s Bounty Hunters and Bounty Hunters 2: Hardball and the recent Trish Stratus (WWE Diva) starring Bounty Hunters. So I was bound to enjoy a film that not only featured bounty hunters, but was called Bounty Killer, right?
In a word. Yes! In fact two words: Hell Yes!

It is truly the season to be jolly now and I’m tired of holding in so much Christmas cheer. Adorned in my Christmas socks, slippers, lounge pants, t-shirt etc. It was time to set about getting into the spirit with one of three holiday related films from Metrodome. First up is The Great Santa Rescue (or A Country Christmas as it is also known). In The Great Santa Rescue, we are introduced to a world where Santa and politicians just don’t mix as the aptly named Max Schmucker (Pollak);guess what he acts like, decides to outlaw belief in Santa. Siblings Miley (Carmichel) and Zach (Stockham) discover the real Santa after he crash lands in their barn because of a lack of belief in him. »

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Arc Entertainment. Director: Henry Saine. Writers: Jason Dodson, Colin Ebeling, and Henry Saine. Cast: Matthew Marsden, Kristanna Loken, Christian Pitre, Barak Hardley, Abraham Benrubi and Gary Busey. This film critic is not a fan of writing negative reviews. However, reviews can sometimes serve as a warning, to steer viewers away from certain material. Henry Saine's (The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu) Bounty Killer is a film that most film fans will want to skip. Based on a 2013 comic book, Bounty Killer offers silly situations in a future post-apocalyptic landscape. The film also offers very little in its characters, while trying to trump up its shortfalls by offering almost every genre in the book. This mishmash of story ideas and weak characters creates for a very uninspiring ninety-two minutes. The story is built on a very weak foundation. The »

Cheerfully gory, derivative and silly, “Bounty Killer” aspires to nothing more or less than trashy fun for genre fans, and this umpteenth “Mad Max”-style dystopian actioner delivers on that modest but admirable score. Henry Saine’s second feature — following the equally tongue-in-cheek horror opus “The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu” — turns its low budget into a self-mocking plus, with high energy and the sense that a good time was had by all covering the other bases. Pic had a brief limited theatrical run in September, and should recoup in current DVD/VOD release while possibly paving the way for a sequel or two.
Once Drifter (Matthew Marsden, from the “Rambo” remake) was the big cheese among bounty hunters in a world where they are celebrated for dispensing justice to the fugitive CEOs and other white-collar miscreants whose global Corporate War ultimately decimated civilization.

Robot Chicken has had some fun with the DC Universe ever since the series premiered on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. As a result, a DC-centric special was inevitable and it aired back in the winter. Now out on DVD from Warner Home Video, the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special is a fast-paced laugh riot for comic book fans.
The Rc crew, headed by cocreators Seth Green and Brecken Mayer are on hand, aided, abetted, and egged on by DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. Interestingly, Zeb Wells, who normally writes for Marvel, never for DC, is ion hand to direct the special. On the surface, they cleverly make this appealing to mainstream viewers by basing the look, feel, and sound to mimic the Super Friends animated series, using sound effects from other animated projects. But once the special gets underway, you glimpse tons of characters only comic readers would know, »
