This is a lower tier "Mad Max" grindhouse. In the future hostile corporate takeovers involve bombs and bullets. The world is thrust into the apocalypse. Corporations dominate while the Wasteland attempts to gain back the world. They are ruled by a Council of Nine who place bounties on the heads of corporations. It appears the poor want to get money so they can live like the people they despise, although this Orwellian aspect is not part of the tale. Bad guys are easy to identify because they wear yellow ties. The plot didn't make a lot of sense, but then this wasn't a plot driven film.

Drifter (Matthew Marsden) and Mary Death (Christian Pitre) are the Bonnie and Clyde of Bounty Hunters. When a bounty is offered on Drifter, he wants to clear his name with the Council of Nine. Mary Death confuses us as she wants to go with him to help him in one scene and then wants to shoot him in the next. Drifter, along with his side kick (Barak Hardley) must pass through the Badlands and fight off cannibal gypsies. Only vintage cars seem to survive the apocalypse.

Beverly D'Angelo and Gary Busey from the "where are they now" crowd appear briefly in the film. The film boasts a lot of blood squirts, severed limbs, CG flames, and a token Brit (Kevin McNally). Mary Death speaks in sexual innuendos, even to her car. She is dressed in a red and white mini dress...like a car hop, stockings, and white go-go boots with killer sharp spurs. And she can take a punch to the face.

If you are starved for a Mad Max style grindhouse, this should hold off the hunger pains.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, brief sex, brief prostitute nudity. Soft 4 stars.

This is a campy and violent grindhouse movie, a Mad Max style tale of a post-apocalyptic society.
It's the future and big corporations have wrested control from governments. Top executives live a party lifestyle in their fragmented society. Ordinary folk survive outside what remains of the big cities in the Wasteland. Their new governing body, the Council of Nine, issues Death Warrants in respect of the owners of the mega-corporations. The Death Warrants are executed by bounty killers, who become the rock stars of the people of the Wasteland.
Two of the foremost bounty killers are Mary Death and Drifter. Mary Death is a stunningly pretty, thirty-something lady who's a master at street-fighting and deadly with guns and knives. She also has a penchant for mini-skirts, suspender belts and figure hugging clothing. Drifter is a thirty-something road warrior who goes to the same clothes shop as Mad Max. He too is an expert with fists, guns and knives. These two characters have a long history together, Drifter taught Mary all of her lethal skills and they once were lovers.
Drifter somehow finds himself on the receiving end of a Death Warrant and flees with a male sidekick into the desert regions of the Wasteland, which are controlled by nomadic gypsies, many of whom are bounty killers themselves. Drifter and his buddy have to deal with the unwanted attentions of the gypsies, and Mary Death is soon on the hunt for Drifter too. The plot does get a little muddled, one minute Mary is flirting with and helping Drifter, the next moment she's shooting at him, but this doesn't spoil the overall enjoyment of the film.
This is a very good modern grindhouse flick, with cartoonish and graphic scenes of extreme violence.

This movie is one of the biggest surprises in a while I think, this is a mad max style futuristic wasteland post apocalyptic gem chock full of action, there hasn't been a real good movie done in this style in a while and this one really pays off with a good use of the budget, there is plenty of action in the form of a mad max style desert car chase, lots of bloody shootouts and knife fights, they certainly don't skimp on the blood as the movie is pretty gory most of the time with bloody splashing and spraying everywhere and with decent practical effects too most of the time, the CGI effects are really still well done too as and when they use them! the cast is really good too, Matthew Marsden plays a cool lead as does the extremely sexy Christian Pitre' I hope to see more of her!! there's a few cool co-star roles too from Kristanna Loken and Gary Busey! you cant help but find this movie a guilty pleasure, its so much fun and highly entertaining! a must see if you like mad max or films like machete!

Bounty Killer is a strange mash up of Mad Max 2/Smokin Aces/Barb Wire. Sound good? Well sadly it isn't.

Matthew Marsden and Christian Pitre play rivil Bounty Killers - futuristic bounty hunters in a post apocalyptic wasteland. Countries have essentially ceased to exist after the world was taken over by big money corporations. Our two main protagonists and various other killers are hunting members of these corporations for the bountys on their heads.

There's not a great deal more plot to it to be honest, just enough to tie together the various action scenes, shoot outs and cartoonish violence that populate the film. The actings pretty ropey, the dialogue isn't the best and some of the "comedy" is groan inducing. On the plus side - on a low budget they've put together an interesting looking world with a comic book feel to it. And it's always cool to see Beverly D'Angelo get some screen time even though she only pops up in a small role.

Overall, it's not worth the time afraid. Thumbs down from me.
