Storyline

Canada 1931: The unsociable trapper Johnson lives for himself in the ice-cold mountains near the Yukon river. During a visit in the town he witnesses a dog-fight. He interrupts the game and buys one of the dogs - almost dead already - for $200 against the owner's will. When the owner Hasel complains to Mountie Sergeant Millen, he refuses to take action. But then the loathing breeder and his friends accuse Johnson of murder. So Millen, although sympathetic, has to try to take him under arrest - but Johnson defends his freedom in every way possible.

Trivia

When they appeared together in the box-office hit movie The Dirty Dozen (1967), Lee Marvin was the top-billed star whilst Charles Bronson was among the ensemble cast credited alphabetically and after Marvin. By 1981, Bronson received top billing for Death Hunt (1981) whilst Marvin received second billing. However, some theatrical posters have Marvin's name elevated in height above Bronson's even though Bronson's appears first on the left and Marvin's second on the right. See more »

[Sundog explains why he's in the Mounties instead of baseball's Major Leagues]
Sundog/George Washington Lincoln Brown: Hell, they didn't want to let me in the Majors and you know why.
Sergeant Edgar Millen: Damn right, I know why. I musta heard that story six hundred times...
Vanessa: Why?
Sundog/George Washington Lincoln Brown: I was too good, that's why. I'd a pitched that ball down Ty Cobb's throat and made George Sisler look like an electric fan.

Charles Bronson's Golden Harvest film.
7 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Death Hunt (1981) was a strange animal. It was one of the few films that were produced by Raymond Chow and his company Golden Harvest. The movie is loosely based upon an actual incident that happened in Canada. The film is basically a showcase of Charlie Bronson's "wide" range of acting abilities. A trapper has a spat with some locals. When push comes to shove Charlie decides to take matters into his own hands and he has to deal with not only the locals but the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Can Charlie survive the locals, The R.C.M.P. and the elements?

This movie is not a classic but it's a nice little action movie. The violence will satisfy action fans and the photography is excellent. Charlie gives his character some humanity and depth to what would ordinarily be considered a "wild mountain man" he also gets to say some cool lines and blasts away at some local ruffians. Lee Marvin co-stars as the Head Mountie and Carl Weathers and Andrew Stevens co-star as well as his fellow mounties. Angie Dickenson guest stars as well.

Recommended.
