Former Spike Lee cinematographer turned director, Ernest Dickerson, helms this stylish further addition to the running-man-action genre with rapper Ice-T as the quarry in a vicious manhunt game. Set in the beautiful wilderness of Oregon, with Rutger Hauer leading the band of deranged getting-back-to-their-primitive-insitincts hunters.

Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
Rutger Hauer is the typical bad guy that he plays so well. Lots of action and nail biting thrills. Great ending. Ice T plays a great role.
Little does he know he's the prey.
So basically this is a retread of Van Dammes hard target.
That may sound bad as Hard target is such a great action flick, but this more than holds it's own thanks to an all star cast, stylish and beautiful direction, and some fairly intense dialouge and action scenes.
If you like films like Hard target or Judgement night (Another underated classic starring Emilio Estevez) this is an entertaining
way to pass the timenand deserves repeat viewings.
T plays Jack Mason, a Seattle hobo plucked from the streets and given a job in the wilderness. Without asking any serious questions or growing suspicious he sheepishly accepts the offer. Upon arriving at a remote forest cabin (actually Lake Wenatchee Airport, if you don't mind me spoiling the magic) he meets a bunch of wealthy weirdos and is well fed and watered. When he wakes the next morning Mason discovers that his job is to run as fast as he can back to civilization.
Director Earnest Dickerson has no control over his cast and allows them to overact to ludicrous degrees. F. Murray Abraham, Oscar or no Oscar, has no idea what he's doing. Gary Busey turns up, goes mental, and then exits (a stupid mistake as he's the most interesting character). John C. McGinley goes over the edge with the minimal of back-story, which only just starts getting interesting before he too exits. It's like they actually wanted to strip the film of any engaging substance.
They try to inject some kind of subtext with the character names. Mason is the everyday working man. He is hunted by men called Hawkins, Griffin, Mr. Wolf and Wolf Jnr. He is employed by men called Cole and Burns, and taken to a place called Hell's Canyon. If writer Eric Bernt was trying to be clever it's lost in the bumbling incompetence that cripples the action scenes.Read more ›
