a superior sequel
11 April 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

HARDBALL is the sequel to BOUNTY HUNTERS, reuniting Michael Dudikoff and Lisa Howard as the title characters. The first one was simply okay, but I felt this film was a far superior movie. This time around, there's a bigger and better addition of humor. The story isn't necessarily better or worse, but it's the just the overall outcome of the film that makes me find it better than BOUNTY HUNTERS. Dudikoff and Howard make a good buddy cop movie-like team and definitely look like they have a good time working together. The action scenes are a bit better done than they were in the first, and the production values were a little better as well. Tony Curtis has a small role as a mob kingpin and brings some class to an otherwise formula B-movie. But it's really the chemistry between Dudikoff and Howard that makes the movie work, and I wouldn't mind seeing a third film provided it could be at least as good as this one.
