Sometimes the best surprise is no surprise ........
10 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very entertaining Southern rednecks vs. city boys in the backwoods of Trapper County. The cast, Robert Estes, Betsy Russell, Bo Hopkins, and Don Swaze among others are convincing, and the Luddigger family of hicks solidly stereotyped with their pickups and hound dogs. What you get is a hunted in the woods film that is easily on a par with recommended similar films like "Hunter's Blood". The rocky countryside is used to full advantage, making the colorful characters even more believable. Sure "Trapper County War" doesn't break any new ground, but it is solid entertainment, and should be sought out by anyone who likes mountain pursuit movies. Sometimes the best surprise is no surprise.
