It was Rutger Hauer's idea that Burns ride a Kawasaki twin-cylinder 650 motorcycle. Hauer owned one of these bikes himself and felt that by riding one in the movie his character would stand out as a leader of the hunting pack. He also claimed that the bike had the appearance of an iron horse, giving Burns the look of a warrior knight. See more »
When Mason fights Wolfe Sr, it's still pretty dark, but in the shot of Burns driving away there's quite a bit of light. We see one shot of Mason shouting - dark again - and then Mason too gets on an ATV - and suddenly there's a lot more light. See more »
The only thing I miss up here is a sport page. I'm so used getting up, having my morning coffee and opening up the sport page.
I don't read newspapers anymore. They're like a mirror of the world's ugliness. I like beautiful things.

I'm ready to go. Let's go
Relax, Doc, digest your food.
We gotta give him some more time.
Think of this as foreplay.

Modern version of the Most Dangerous Game, where a human is hunted for sport.
Entertaining movie, especially for the fans of the short story, The Most Dangerous Game. Rapper/Actor Ice-T (Richochet, New Jack City) is a homeless man hired by a bunch of rich people to help them in their hunt. Soon he realizes that he is the prey. The rich hunters are led by Rutger Hauer (Nighthawks, Mr. Stich). The hunters are equipped with different types of guns and smaller vehicles, while Ice-T is forced to use his street smarts to beat them in the secluded wilderness. The other hunters include Gary Busey (Point Break, Lost Highway), F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus, Mimic), Charles S. Dutton (Rudy, Alien 3), and John McGilney (The Rock, Nothing To Lose). This is a fast paced movie, although the first half hour is mainly character development for Ice-T. It is very entertaining, the script's dialogue is fairly poor, but who cares in an action movie. Ice-T does a good job at making you want him to win. Rutger Hauer, Charles S. Dutton, F. Murray Abraham are all good at being evil, but the best performance of the bad guys is John McGilney who has an extra reason to want to kill a homeless man. The movie is a solid hour and a half of entertainment, but don't be expecting anything more.
