Jennifer Jason Leigh,

Just in time Cole, from a charity organization, can prevent his suicide and also offers him a quite well paid job as servant for a hunting party in the Rocky Mountains. Mason accepts the job and flies with them to a hut in the wilderness where they prepare everything for the four rich businessmen who want to hunt something special.

The address of Hell's Canyon Outfitters as detailed on the business card that Cole hands Mason is 1 5th Ave, Seattle. In real life there is no such address and the starting point of 5th Avenue is a section of monorail track. The phone number is apparently (206) 555-2829. The actual location is an office building on Orondo Street in Wenatchee, Washington. See more »
When Rutger Hauer's character spots the cave Mason is hiding in, it is illuminated by orange light (as if a fire was lit inside). In the next scene, inside the cave, it is lit with the blue light from a flashlight. See more »
I know more about you than you even think, Mason.
Probably you do, but I don't know a shit about you.
Then ask me something. Ask me anything you want.
All right, how did you get that fucking scar up your eye?
I refer to that as my birth mark. On my eighth birthday my father brought me a bulldog, a fat, little bulldog. I named him Prince Henry Stout. He was strong. He would've chased my pet turkey; he would've chased a squirrel up the tree. I raised him, I trained him, I fed him, I grew him, I ...

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.
