Despite the ending of the movie taking place in Seattle for some reason the production filmed and used an establishing shot of Philadelphia from the vantage point of the South Street Bridge. Several key identifiable landmarks are visible in this shot and there is obviously nothing resembling a Space Needle to even vaguely pass it off as the intended location. Why they did this exactly has never been revealed. See more »
When Wolfe Sr. is shooting at Mason in the dark he empties the magazine of his semi-automatic. There are sounds of him pulling the trigger and the hammer falling on empty chambers as if the gun is empty but it can be seen that the slide is locked back and therefore the trigger would not be able to operate the hammer.

This movie could have been so much better with a script rewrite. Not that I expect a great deal of plausibility in movies, but you'd think that even the homeless and urban-dwelling Jack Mason would question why a group of experienced hunters would want to hire him as a hunting guide. And upon reaching the hunting grounds, poor Ice-T plays his part as if he is actually going to lead these men through woods he's never seen before.
And how does Jack Mason find Thomas Burns back in Seattle?
I'm assuming this movie was based on Richard Connell's short story "The Most Dangerous Game." A few years ago I showed this movie to a class of 9th grade students after they read the story. I reedited the movie, cutting out all the pointless scenes and all the profanity. It ended up being 43 minutes long.
