Well each to their own & as much as I respect each persons opinion I'm not too sure what film that guy below was watching but I'm not sure it was Bone Dry.

I wasn't too sure how I'd take to this film, with it being pretty much set in the desert, I thought the story line may have been a bit thin, however I was totally wrong.

The story line is strong & it constantly keeps you gripped, your watching the film wondering why Eddie is being tortured so much by Jimmy, but it all makes sense in the end with a very clever twist, Jimmy is constantly putting Eddie through various methods of torture, which also makes you think "No way thats cruel" but it also has some good humour in it (such as the scene where Eddie is tied to the van shouting "I love it Jimmy"), it is a VERY intriguing film that keeps you constantly watching.

Eddie also meets a few other people in his trip during & the things that happen are crazy too, your kinda thinking while watching it "Don't be doing that" ... but theirs no stopping, mistakes are made & well.. you'll see.

I've had friends watch this film & every one of them have genuinly turned round and said "Yeah it was really good" & even my little brother (Who can never sit & watch films) has watched this a few times, bringing his mates in to watch it too (Who also all enjoyed it) so that does speak for itself.

As I say, each to their own but the film, in my honest opinion, genuinly is a fantastic piece & it has such a clever story & twist to it, the end is very interesting & makes you go "Aaah right" .... and then, do you feel sorry for Eddie after all?

All is answered within the film but it is a very clever story with a fantastic twist, trust me on this one :)

I really don't know why the guy below gave it such a down low review, because it actually truly is a really good film, but watching it yourself will speak for itself anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a watch! ***** 27 Jun 2013
By Jules
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this DVD, however I was pleasantly surprised. The story is gripping from start to end with strong performances from both lead roles. My only criticism would be is that there are no English subtitles on the film and sometimes it is hard to catch what is being said. However I would still highly recommend this film.

Great value for money dvd. Well packaged, fast delivery, brilliant film, husband raved about it as it was on tv a long time ago & it was never listed again, so I never managed to see it. Well worth the wait.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bone Dry? I'll say! 1 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
I was expecting a lot more to this film from the posters that I saw and it was awful. It was one of those that as you watch it you are willing it to get better, I mean, it has to, right? Not this one. There are no real twist and turns. It's predictable. It's painfully slow. BUT if you want to see a naked Luke Goss handcuffed to a giant cactus then this is the movie for you!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lean and Mean 4 Mar 2008
By David Alianiello - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A business man absentmindedly sips coffee at a roadside diner, passing through a desert town. He leaves after sensitively rejecting a lonely waitress' come on, saying he's got to get home to his family. Five minutes later he's been pistol-whipped, knocked out cold and left in the desert with a compass and walkie talkie. A cold voice on the other end of the walkie talkie orders the business man to follow the compass heading due North. He has the man's wallet, ID, address and family photos, a high powered rifle and scope. If he deviates from these directions at all, the voice informs him, he'll put a bullet in his head and start "cutting hands and heads." Thus begins a grueling, lean, mean trek across the desert filled with pain, cruelty and plenty of surprises. Who's the good guy? Who's the bad guy? Why is this happening? This leads to a very satisfying conclusion that pulls no punches and doesn't cop out. Lance Henriksen is back in top form as the mysterious hunter, after appearing in too many inferior DTV movies lately. Luke Goss, a fine British actor, goes through Hell (you will not forget the "cactus" scene) as the unlucky business man whose past may be catching up to him.

The presentation is widescreen, not 1.33:1 that is listed on Amazon's product description. Extras include director's commentary, a "Making of" featurette, deleted scenes, trailers for "Bone Dry" and others movies. Don't watch the trailer prior to viewing the movie as it contains a major spoiler.

3.0 out of 5 stars Feel the scorching desert--cool visuals, startling cactus scene, and good acting by Lance and Luke 21 Nov 2008
By Mir - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
At the end of this film, I felt like something had been lacking in terms of characterization. A lot of the dialogue felt repetitive, and I think that space of talk (and there isn't that much of it) could have carried a bit more heft. And if flashbacks were to be used (and they were), they should have shed more light on the man walking north in the pitiless desert in the hopes of saving his life from the merciless hunter on his back.

BUT...the opening is very nicely done. The supersaturated golds/yellows/brown that scream "DESERT". The low-key way the diner scene is done, and yet we feel menace in the air. It was nice to see Dee Wallace Stone again--a good actress who simply has not been adequately put to work in Hollywood, in my opinion.

Even better, we get to spend some time with gravelly-voiced, sad-eyed Lance Henriksen, one of my fave character actors. He's the relentless hunter. Handsome, hawk-eyed Luke Goss (Nomak from BLADE 2 and Prince Nuada from Hellboy 2) is the hunted suit-wearing man who is kidnapped after he departs from the diner (where a lonely waitress played by Wallace Stone hits on him rather kindly, and he similarly kindly rejects). A nice guy, we think. A family man.

But is he?

And that's the question (or one of them) at the heart of this pursuit film. Who is good? Who is bad? Why is this happening? When one man puts another man to torture and testing, we assume he's either justified (by some previous act, as in PAYBACK) or unjustified (as in VANISHING POINT). Either it's a sociopath getting kicks from torturing a human being; or it's an angel of vengeance. Or maybe something grayer, but all the same, landing somehwere in that range of unmotivated/motivated and just/unjust.

The notorious cactus scene is well-done. Luke Goss, whose past includes success as a cutiepie drummer for a band called Bros that was big in the '80s, shows that he can act without a ton of makeup on (as in the vampire mutant of Blade II or the tormented Elf Prince in Hellboy II). He has a lean, chiselled handsomeness that seems a shame to sunburn and torment. And he does a creditable job as the maybe good/maybe bad victim. I'd like to see him in other films. He's got an intersting face/voice, and I think he might do much better than some would expect of the recurring genre-film "monster."

By the end, we know the why. So, there is closure, although you are left to guess one detail, and I won't spoil it.

The direction is solid, if not consistently as stylish as the set-up and parts of the finale.

I think fans of action films (or of one of the particular leads) can enjoy this. But it didn't rise as high as I would have liked, mostly because space was wasted (even with a fastish pace). I did enjoy the look of some of the desert scenes quite a bit.

The bonus features were kind of pathetic, especially the "making of." Only a couple of places of the "how tos"--particularly the cactus scene how to--made it worthwhile. It didn't seem as if much thought went into that aspect. But worth watching for those who want a sense of "standing behind the scenes" reality.

Between Luke Goss and Lance Henriksen this movie had the psychotic feel of an out of control roller coaster. Loved it!
