The landing strip and cabin seen in the movie is actually Lake Wenatchee State Airport, which is very close to civilization, the exact opposite of the fictional location in the movie. 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 was a movie I fell in favor of instantly, seeing a man on the run for his life from a band of sadistic hunters whose prey are humans rather than animals. It was so very amazing to see Ice-T as the man on the run who gave the hunters more than what they had all bargained for. Even the collection of hunters involved, headed up by Rutger Hauer and featuring the likes of an esoteric cast such as Charles S. Dutton, John C. McGinley, William McNamara (an actually unwilling participant in this ordeal), Gary Busey and F. Murray Abraham make for a band of human flesh hunters enough to make anybody run for cover. All-in-all, the type of movie for anyone to see for an idea of how the human mind can extend to the point of insanity with regard to whose life is important versus whose life is not. As the slogan of the movie goes, Never underestimate a man--or a woman(!)--who has nothing to lose.
