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.

When Johnson is trapped on the cliff and begins preparing to jump into the pine trees, the weather is sunny and there is no snow on the trees. Yet when he jumps, the sky is overcast and the trees are covered with snow; once he is back on the ground, it is sunny again and the snow is gone from the trees. See more »

bronson is a bad man
5 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Death Hunt is relatively forgotten action film that was pretty entertaining even though Charles Bronson doesn't have that many lines, he really didn't have to in this movie. The great Lee Marvin and Andrew Stevens who you probably know from some Shannon Tweed films go hunting for Bronson in the biting cold Canadian winter with lots of action and overall a pretty good film, worth checking out if you can "hunt" it down somewhere.
