Entertaining fare, worthy of it's three stars
21 November 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I remember wagging school to see this. I was sixteen. Well, I wasn't really wagging. I was going to town to buy some clothes. I just optioned to see this. I really wanted to see this flick, a kinda Mad Max in the outback. The plot is simple: animal conservationalist gets on the wrong side of these three larger than kangaroo, hunters, the most menacing of them, being the older one, Sunny, quite a tough one to figure out. A game of revenge begins, pitting the taunted against her taunters. They draw first blood, after nearly running her off the road, in some breathtaking action, which is well shot, you can tell the director had fun making this. Sunny defends his actions, by saying "We're only doing the farmers a favor". Him and his mates are surely not doing her a favor. They keep pushing her, stalking her, tormenting her, breaking into her farmhouse. Check out the nude snapshot Sunny takes of her while asleep. Yummy. She starts pushing back, like doing one hell of a welding job on their rifles which Sunny's mate, Sparks compliments it. The trademark scene is her being tied to the front of the pickup, actually known as The Beast, that flaunts these big horns that sit above the vehicles grill. Her breasts are open to view, on this uncomfortable ride. The locations on the beautiful Flinders Rangers, work to this film's benefit. Truly beautiful scenery, and Adelaide'n that I am, I have to take a ride up there one day. I must admit this is an addictive revenge flick. I don't know what the other kid in the cinema thought but I did enjoy it. But the film does run on two little. There's some great stuntwork and some intense scenes, where their taunting takes it's toll on this poor beautiful woman. The victims die in forgettable if pathetic ways. It's ending song isn't forgettable though. The film, does have a high animal count I must warn you. Fair Game is an action flick that certainly won't win any AFI'S, but this 85 Adelaide effort that was shot on mid thirty degree days, is entertaining junk. Incidentally, producer Harley Manners was so eager to do this, he sold his house in Torrens Park to finance the film, I guess, and when you have the beautiful Delaney in it's lead (who actually was going with songwriting great, John Denver), anything with her is worth watching. See how many films have this title. I'm pretty sure this one is it's first.
