Storyline

Former LAPD cop, Dakota Varley (played by UFC champion Bas Rutten), enters a power boat race seeking the prize of $250,000, but immediately discovers, first hand, that this race's risk matches the prize: one racer is killed, 3 others seriously injured in multiple action-packed crashes and explosions. Varley prevails. Varley tries to leave the lake and collect his prize money but is drugged and kidnapped by Dawson (portrayed by Michael Rooker) and thrown into a different world: a world where survivl means everything and no-one follows the rules. Varley awakens on an island, strapped to pole, like a pig being carried to a barbeque. Surrounded by heavily-armed men, he soon learns that he and six other victims have been assembled to be contestants in the ultimate survival game: they will be hunted nightly by hunters with rifles until there is one remaining survivor, who will win a $10,000,000 cash prize! As the story unfolds, we meet the other contestants Jesse is an undercover DEA agent ... Written by Anonymous

Bas Rutten + Jungle = Total and Complete Non-Stop Awesome Sauce
27 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All I can say about this movie is: "GIVE ME SOME MORE!!! I WANT SOME MORE!!!" This movie is the perfect, and I mean PERFECT, blend of Mixed Martial Arts, Bas Rutten (Dakota Varley), Marco Ruas (Salvador), marbles, Voltaire (played by Tony Boldi), android prisoners, and jungles. The thought of using the jungle as a battleground was very inspirational, so all I can say is that this movie gave me "jungle fever". I strongly think that this is Bas Rutten's true calling. He really made me believe that he was stuck on an island and fighting for survival. Some fight for freedom. What does he fight for? He made it quite clear in the movie that he fights for survival. While watching this movie, I really believed that he wanted some more. But Bas Rutten was not the only reason that this movie was as great as it was. Paul Logan (Jesse) is a very wonderful actor whose credentials speak for themselves. Check out his IMDb profile for the various cinematic tour de forces that he has been in. Another reason that this movie, or rather, this work of art, was as great as it was was the wonderful performance by Michael Rooker (Miles Dawson). His spectacular, wonderful, scrumtrilescent speech about marbles made me realize that he is a true villain. All in all, I believe that this movie is the cinematic pinnacle from which all movies hereafter should strive for. Thank you Bas. Thank you Paul. Thank you Michael. Thank you Marco. Thank you android prisoner. Thank you for everything.
