Product Description

Two men…One victim…the other a hunter…the arena…the desert. Eddie (Goss) finds himself being forced at a gunpoint, by an unseen assailant, on a dark and brutal journey through the harsh terrain of the Mojave desert. His nemesis is Jimmy (Henriksen), a man with an aberrant agenda; armed with a rifle, a scope, walkie-talkies and a truck, he has organized a series of ambushes and mantraps designed to push Eddie to the limits of his humanity and beyond.

Review

A stunningly photographed story of masculine sadism! --Dan O'Bannon, writer/director (Alien, Total Recall)

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.

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.

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

Well worth the rental price just for the cactus scene. Easy to get caught up in. It begs the question " what would you do?" Don't miss this one!

I should have know better expecially after seeing there would only be 2 main characters. Not much for movies filmed in one main location and with limited characters.

Bought this as a gift for my sister, who loves Luke Goss. I have not seen it, but my sister says it was dark, but pretty good.
