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

Move on, nothing to see here...
3 September 2004 | by (Larnaca, Cyprus) – See all my reviews

The storyline involves 7 strangers of differing backgrounds being transfered (unwillingly) to an island by an equal number of rich people which bet 25 million $ on their contestant. The island is the gameground on which guards are sent in groups to eliminate the contestants. The last survivor is the victor the "deathmatch".

I found quite a few similarities to Battle Royale. Of course don't imagine this movie to be nearly as entertaining as Battle royale. This was a clearly low budget effort, the cinematography was below average, the fighting scenes were bad and even the acting was horrible.

I don't recommend this movie. 4/10
