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

Terrible even by genre standards
13 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE ELIMINATOR is another B-movie action flick along the lines of BATTLE ROYALE and THE CONDEMNED, which sees a group of disparate fighters abandoned on a tropical island, where they'll be hunted down by armed men every night. The twist is that each fighter has his or her own sponsor backing them.

Unfortunately, this turns out to be a complete waste of time, and actually one of the worst-made films I've seen in a good while. The writing is mundane, but the direction is even worse; you rarely see films that have been edited this badly, with cameras in the wrong place and a general amateurish feel to the whole thing. The poor quality also renders the low budget action sequences a mess, and impossible to enjoy.

It goes without saying that the acting is equally bad, the cast populated by non-entities you've never heard of. The exception is poor Michael Rooker (SLITHER), who must have grabbed his pay-cheque and run, and can you blame him? THE ELIMINATOR is complete trash, impossible for even this B-movie fan to enjoy.
