3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a blast 19 Nov 2010
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Given the films title and the fact that it features wrestler star Steve 'Stone Cold' Austin as a man out to rescue his kidnapped daughter, it comes as a bit of a surprise to discover that this is not a high-speed-action-fest of a movie. If like me you were expecting something along the lines of 'Commando' or 'Taken' I think you are going to be disappointed.

That's no to say it's a bad film, the cast is pretty good, even if they all play stock characters. Even Steve Austin, someone who I'd expected to be awful, acquits himself pretty well as a decent man up against the odds. The movie's biggest problem is that it to leans too heavily on it's weakest points (the script and story) and ignores it's biggest asset (man mountain Steve Austin) for too long. Austin looks like he could knock eight-shades out of anyone he comes up against but is rarely given the opportunity to do so. In fact we are kept waiting until the last third of the film before any of the real action kicks in, and even then the dull film work robs it of impact.

At the end of the day this film is more of a disappointment rather than an outright disaster, it has all the ingredients to be a dumb-fun action flick, where the bad guys meet grisly ends at the hands of a justice dispensing Steve, but this is never served up. Which is too bad, because it could have been a blast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average film 3 Nov 2010
By Octagon
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
To say this film is good would be giving it too much credit, it is viewable, but isnt very interesting or entertaining. It is another attempt at the action movie market but it doesnt really get there and seems quite bland and due to previous Austin films, it isnt very surprising. Austin's acting is quite good and actually better than the other films he has featured in, but it seems that dialogue is cut short and relys too much on action scenes while austins co stars do most of the talking. Overall, there is no denying Austins image and potential in the action movie scene, but with very little presence and charisma it doesnt do the film any justice, 3 stone cold stunners.

3.0 out of 5 stars Plot is a little cliche now 19 Nov 2010
By SBno1 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have to say that when I sat down to watch this I was expecting it to be a load of rubbish, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that it exceeding my initial expectations.

Unfortunately this kind of plot has been seen many times in films and so you just know how it is going to run and end from the beginning. The only difference is the skin that is applied to the plot. The basics of the film are that survivalist Jim Rhodes (Austin) is forced to escort a band of murderous thieves across the US/Canadian border via the mountain forests. They are ill equipped and dependent upon Rhodes to track down another of their group whilst keeping them from wondering off into the unknown. Their trump card is Rhodes sulky daughter is also along for the ride under duress.

The quality of Steve Austins acting also exceeded my expectations, but I have to admit I was expecting the worse. He wasn't bad although his character seemed to lack any substance. I couldn't work out if that was because of the script or because he was living up to his "Stone Cold" image. That being said, he did play the hero well without coming across as a superhuman. The other characters played believable parts and together probably rescued this film from the abyss.

I like a bit of spoon fed, no thinking action from time to time and this gave me my fix. Whilst not a waste of money, it is not one I would ever watch again. If this is your kind of thing then you won't be disappointed. If you only like action films with complex plots, twists and turns and rich characters then you should avoid this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average at best 17 Nov 2010
By Ferris TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Throughout this film I was reminded of some all time great action movies, it's not just me! another reviewer lists the same three films I was thinking of :

"A straight to DVD release, this film is a mix of Rambo: First blood, meets Commando meets cliffhanger."

Steve Austin does give a credible performance but it would have been nice to see some original plot lines that weren't so predictable.

Unlike the classic action thrillers that Hunt to Kill imitates I don't think I would ever watch again, it did however provide 90 minutes of entertainment.

2.0 out of 5 stars All walk, no action 17 Nov 2010
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Reuniting Steve Austin, an underused Gary Daniels and - very briefly in a pointless cameo clearly shot in one day - Eric Roberts from The Expendables, straight-to-DVD thriller Hunt to Kill is certainly better made than Austin's previous starring vehicle for Anchor Bay, The Stranger, but unfortunately it's also a lot duller. It's the kind of action movie that offers zero characterisation and a well-worn plot that's little more than a coathanger for the action sequences, which wouldn't be a problem if there actually was much in the way of action or if what there was were particularly well executed. Unfortunately neither is the case. The plot is standard commando-issue, with Austin's border patrolman forced to guide Gil Bellows and his gang of bad `uns through the mountains to recover the loot stolen by their treacherous partner if he's to save his petulant daughter from their clutches. In other words, a hybrid of Cliffhanger, Shoot to Kill, Commando and First Blood without all the good bits but with almost as much walking as Timothy Hines' infamous version of War of the Worlds. There's very, very little action in the film - maybe five minutes of its 93-minute running time - and what there is is unimpressively staged. Even the fight between Austin and former kickboxing champion Gary Daniels underwhelms thanks to uninteresting choreography and excessive close-ups, with even the one decent stunt Daniels is given botched by shooting the first half in slow motion and then ramping up the speed so fast for the second half that it barely registers. Unfortunately that's fairly typical of the kind of lazy by the numbers stuff on display throughout a film that's all walk, no action. Read more ›

I cannot comment on this because I ordered it for someone else. It is not to my liking, though, but there is no accounting for taste.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear!
We had seen the film 'Condemned' with Steve Austin & enjoyed It. Damage was also a good film, this on the other hand is not! Do not waste your time or money on it.
