Customer Reviews

Very funny, and lots of action.
Damian P. Gadal
When I say ‘like,’ I mean ‘love.’ This is B movie magic from start to finish.
E. Lee Zimmerman
No subtitles because talking just interferes with the red dyed corn syrup.

Yes, thank goodness that B movies are still being made today. B movies, Grindhouse flicks, throwaway pictures … whatever you want to call them. For many of us, they’re a staple from our youth – a harmless diversion of cinematic entertainment that’s clearly meant to be derivative of some bigger, bolder, but no doubt blander. Considering what goes hand-in-hand with the B movie – action, hot women, and blood (preferably plenty of it) – it’s no wonder young and old men will sit through anything so long as they’re the promise that all three will be delivered in spades.

Early this year, I’d seen some footage of BOUNTY KILLER on an entertainment website, but, alas, I never saw it playing theatrically in the U.S. That’s a shame – it may have, and it would’ve been fun to see it up on the silver screen – but maybe that’s just the way things are; after all, B movies are best when experienced in the comfort and privacy of a room with a solitary boob tube.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

20 years into tomorrow, our planet has been reduced into a desert wasteland. Was it global warming? Nuclear catastrophe? Bad gardening? Quite possibly a combination of the above. What’s left of civilization is little more than ragtag outposts, all hoping for one thing: vengeance against the corrupt corporate raiders who selfishness destroyed our planet.

This review was originally posted to my blog on October 23, 2013.

"Bounty Killer" was originally based on a short film of the same name by Jason Dodson and Henry Saine, and its wildly over-the-top actions sequences, graphic violence, artsy visual style, and occasional use of short animated sequences keeps it fairly true to its origins. This is because the original creators were also involved in adapting it into a feature length film.

Set in a futuristic dystopia, this actioner takes place twenty years after “The Corporate Wars,” in which mega-corporations have toppled world governments, and then fought one another for world domination. As the world “spiraled into oblivion,” the top corporate executives abandoned their armies and fled with the remaining wealth. Born from the ash of a destroyed planet rose the enigmatic “Council of Nine,” who vow to rebuild and give hope to the survivors. The Council issues “death warrants” on all white-collared criminals to assure that big business never gets in control again and for “providing the survivors of the apocalypse with retribution.” This spawns bounty killers who compete for body count, fame, and “a fat stack of cash.”

Foremost amongst the Council’s bounty killers is a veteran named Francis Gorman aka “Drifter” (Matthew Marsden), a stoic aging hunter. Then there is Mary Death (Christian Pitre). A sexy diva that is as glitzy as she is brash, even sporting her own supped up yellow Ford Mustang. While Mary plays to her adoring fans and the press, Drifter shies away more interested in getting the job done than making headlines.

When we first meet these two, we find them both together riding up an elevator to a holographic go-go club to take out a CEO (Ivar Brogger) and his cronies.

The action, violence and infrequent gore is totally over the top! This is a movie Quentin Tarantino WISHED he could have made! Never a dull or slow moment and with all the right touches. I would recommend for 18 and over.

I'm a sucker for Post Apocalyptic stuff. Honestly watched the trailer and figured it'd be terrible but why not. The action, cinematography, music, sound design, acting was all way above average. The script was uneven but it got from point A to B. Some dialogue was terrible but some was pretty good. The lead actress is gorgeous. Some of the special effects were really cool. If you're a fan of the video game Fallout, you'd love this movie.

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.
