"Wings" in South Africa ..........
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The scene of a bounty hunter (Wings Hauser) hunting bail jumper (Arnold Vosloo) quickly moves from New York City to South Africa. An obviously unhinged Vosloo is on a rampage cutting up hookers as if he were a human "Vegimatic". While there is plenty of slicing and dicing, his motivation is rather far fetched and weak. Vosloo's sister was a prostitute who was killed while in the "life", and he is out seeking revenge on call girls. The movie delivers just enough sleaze and action to entertain, but lacks a lot in the logic department. For "Wings" fans this might be a worthwhile watch, while others need not bother. ..... - MERK
