Undercover Chinese cop Xin is on a secret international mission when a surprise raid puts him in a remote jungle prison that plays by its own rules. Here, the visitors are wealthy thrill seekers. The guards are hostile puppet masters. And the prisoners are simply pawns in a high stakes game of human hunting human. It started as just another bad day for the do-gooder cop. That day gets a whole lot worse when the diabolical Warden singles Xin out for death at the hands of affluent hunters looking for the world's ultimate kill. After years of hunting down ruthless criminals, Xin suddenly finds himself running for his life. If Xin manages to survive this sadistic game, he'll walk out of the jungle the same way he came in: as a free man. If Xin fails, he's dead meat - and just another hunting trophy.

I watched this movie with English subtitles. After seeing the trailer I was hoping it would be as touching as the 1994 movie "Surviving the Game" with Gary Busey in it, which I loved. The story was a little different but same sort of scenario in which people are hunted as sport for money.

I believe it could have worked with a much higher budget but would still generate a mild response from the majority of viewers. Several of the actors let it down, especially the main villain.

The ending was a bit of a let down and made me think of stirring spaghetti bolognese where I was trying to keep up with the focus of the story and who was dying. I guess reading subtitles takes away from appreciating it a bit too. Not being a real fan of martial arts I would have to say didn't help my rating.

I see this movie generating a more positive response from young viewers.
