About a third of the way through, Nick and other policemen are trying to disarm a suspect holding seven sticks of dynamite only 100 feet away. The dynamite explodes much less than it should; seven sticks of dynamite would level a house, and everyone would have to be at least 300 feet away to avoid serious injury or death. See more »
There exist two different version on videotape. One where Malak Al Rahim dies at the end, by having his head blown off, and one where this doesn't happen. The ending where Rahim doesn't die, is very tame, since the picture just fades to black, and then fades back in, with Randaal sitting somewhere pondering his fate. See more »
I recently revisited "Wanted Dead Or Alive" after a period of almost 20 years. The film's really stood the test of time and it's a shame there weren't any sequels produced. Rutger Hauer's time as an action hero was short-lived.
The film's low budget roots can't be missed but there are enough strong performances from the cast to carry the movie. Hauer's bachelor loft is the ultimate guy pad and, in my opinion, worth watching the movie for. To say his crib is cool is the understatement of the year.
Gene Simmons delivers the goods as a thoroughly nasty baddie.
Great '80s "B"-movie fun.
