Madec, an international and unscrupulous entrepreneur, hires the skilled young tracker Ben to guide him through the fearful and barren Mojave Desert during a hunting trip. Unfortunately, however, things will take a turn for the worse, when prideful Madec shoots unintentionally the wrong target, and in a cynical attempt to wash his hands of the irrevocable deed, Madec will try to bribe himself out of this predicament by offering Ben a hefty compensation in exchange for his silence. But as this is against Ben's principles, before long, the unfortunate tracker will run for his life under the fierce and merciless sun. Undoubtedly, the desert is limitless, but on the other hand, so is the desire to survive.Written by

So Michael Douglas still has the pull to get a movie in theaters that stars himself. Very good, cause a small picture like this needed a name to get into theaters
Mike D plays the villain and he plays it well. Rich, white, and thinks he can get away with anything. Almost like Gordon Gecko. It's the archetype everyone loves to hate.
Douglas is a hunter who accidentally kills a man on a hunting trip and tries to cover it up but his tracker is young and honest and when framing him as a co-murderer doesn't work, he decides to hunt the most dangerous game of all.
It's the type of movie that tries to mess with your mind as Douglas plays a character who does not seem that evil on the surface, but shows his spots as the movie goes on.
It's a very small movie with a very small cast and it's quite impressive how they fill the time. Thumbs up!
