Goofs

After Baylor takes the minicam from Landon he opens the waterproof shell, removing the memory card, and tosses the camera away. Later Madden finds the camera and looks it over, and as he hands it to Aldrich he announces "Memory card's missing" -- except he never opened the housing, so there would be no way he could know it wasn't inside.

Very Exciting
12 November 2016 | by rutzelbSee all my reviews

Retired MMA fighter Wes Baylor (Scott Atkins) is given a chance to fight in Myanmar for 1-Million Dollars. He sort of retired after killing his best friend in a championship bout. When he goes there, he discovers there is no fight, but instead he will be the hunted. He is given a million dollars in rubies and can keep them if he makes it to the border. He sees the 7- men and one woman, Sofia (Rhona Mitra), who will be hunting him along with Aldrich (Robert Knepper) the so- called fight promoter. Let the games begin.

This is, of course, a variation of the Most Dangerous Game, but here Baylor will be hunted down with a GPS locator, long range rifles, hi-tech crossbows- with lights-, knives, swords, stun guns, pistols, jeeps, drones, motorcycles, and helicopters. (Didn't see any hand-grenades) Along the way he meets Tha (Ann Truong) a pretty jungle girl, whose brother is missing and she suspects he is being hunted and is hiding from Aldrich.

The fighting, stunts are simply brutal but outstanding. (Remember this is just a movie) Atkins as Baylor isn't given the wry comedic quips as a Bond, James Bond is known for. No, we see him as deadly serious as he is literally fighting for his life. Well, now for Tha's too.

The photography and cinematography are outstanding. The acting all around is good and the pacing is fast and furious.

Robert Knepper who will be forever known as Tea Bag from that Prison Break TV series did good as the boss of this gang of hunters and, at times, he was able to inject some morbid humor into this. He has a good way of doing that.

The only complaint I have is why, why , why would Baylor leave guns and knives on the ground after he kills one of the hunters and runs away? Why indeed.

Overall this was pretty exciting. The ending kind of left me thinking there might be a Hard Target 3 and maybe, just maybe we will see a more animated Baylor with some humorous quips. Could happen. (7/10)

Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: Yes, not much.
