PM entertainment tries to do something different and it works
26 October 2004 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

First off, on the box art for "The Stray" it has a clean shaven Michael Madsen on the cover, but really he has a beard. This is not an action movie. This is a drama\mystery. Madsen can easily carry a movie with the right material. He does a good job here as Ben. Angie Everhart looks pretty, and she has some acting chops. The plot is about Everhart running over a drifter and wanting to help him recover from his wounds. Usually PM entertainment makes action films but this I think is their first drama. They pull it off with ease. There are some action scenes, but they are just forced in there, so you won't fall asleep. The bike chase was exciting though. If you see it at a video store, give it chance, you probably won't be disappointed.
