2.0 out of 5 stars Homage to Grindhouse Exploitation Flicks September 12, 2012
Format:DVD
"The Victim" is a good example of what happens when one person fills three key roles: writer, director, and actor. In this case, that person is Michael Biehn ("Terminator," "Aliens").

Party girls Annie (Jennifer Blanc) and Mary (Danielle Harris) find themselves in a life and death situation. Annie's life is put in jeopardy when she witnesses the rape and murder of her closest friend at the hands of two sheriff's deputies (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood). With her pursuers closing in, she stumbles across Kyle (Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods. A rugged loner, Kyle finds the stillness of the woods comforting. He keeps civilization far away until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into turmoil.

This tawdry film attempts to emulate the grindhouse, exploitation flicks that used to flourish in pre-Disneyfied, 1970's Times Square movie houses. Rated R, it is extremely violent and tough to watch. Rape, murder, gunplay, assorted psychopaths, crooked cops, adult language, and cliches built on cliches abound. Bonus extras on the Blu-ray release include audio commentary with Michael Biehn and a making-of featurette.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun and Enjoyable Film February 8, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Anybody here complaining about pacing problems or "bad" performances should really have looked at the box a little closer before picking up this film. It's a grindhouse picture, pure and simple. It's not meant to be perfect, which is actually part of the appeal of the film. Personally, I felt the performances were quite good. Michael Biehn was great and I see more directing in his future. It's great fun to see Danielle Harris playing an adult considering she's 35 years old and still almost always gets cast as a teenager or a college student. All in all, you get what you pay for here: a sleazy good time. Previous reviewers on here are obviously not familiar with Michael Biehn or Danielle Harris' previous work if they were expecting any more than that. Not for everybody but it's worth a watch for horror fans.

2.0 out of 5 stars Michael Biehn's Debut Work as Director April 26, 2013
Format:DVD
It is said that "The Victim" is homage to grindhouse movies. Is that so? Despite the story that includes torture and murder, the film itself does not have enough amount of over-the-top violence or whatever makes the exploitation genre so fun. I hate to say this because I like Michael Biehn, star/writer/director of the movie, but "The Victim" is simply boring.

Michael Biehn plays Kyle Limato, a reclusive man living alone in the woods. One night a terrified woman named Annie (Jennifer Blanc) arrives, screaming for help, saying that her friend Mary (Danielle Harris) was killed, and now she, a murder witness, is being chased by the murders, two sheriff's deputies.

I'm not perfectly sure if the film's hammy acting, simple bare bone script and heavy-handed narrative including too frequent flashbacks and musings are all really intentional. I think genuine homage involves a touch of creativity, which "The Victim" doesn't seem to have. Or is this just another low-budget thriller striving for the cult status?

I don't know. All I know is that "The Victim," homage or not, is in need of something different that would distinguish itself from others of its ilk.

2.0 out of 5 stars WOW...so disappointed!!!! February 9, 2013
By Patty
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I found this movie to be nothing less than predictable. It felt as though I was watching a spoof movie, with horrible acting happening on purpose. I became more and more disappointed with each line delivered by each character. I continuously inserted my own twists and turns during the movie hoping that something interesting would happen because it was just that boring. I can see a good story line here and with some major rewriting and changes in acting, it could have been a great movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Michael Biehn delivers the goods September 28, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Victim is a very entertaining film ,The acting was really good for a low budget film, the story was interesting, un tedious or boring.
I have been a Michael Biehn fan ever since I saw him in the early 80's slasher 'The Fan' with Lauren Bacall.He was gorgeous then and is still sexy at 54.
Danielle Harris is a joy to watch as is Jennifer Blanc although as a Horror fan I have a special place in my heart for Danielle. Even though Mary, Danielle's character is killed off in the beginning of the film we see her in flash backs as Annie "Blanc"is reflecting on their friendship and she is really sexy in her little stripper outfits,you guys should love that,seeing as Biehn and Blanc are married in real life the sex scene was pretty hot and realistic.
It wasn't a slasher or a gore fest but a physiological thriller, mystery of sorts. I liked it even without the element of no gore because the characters and story carried the film and kept me glued to the TV.I hesitated watching because I thought it would be mundane and predictable but it was neither.
Bravo to Biehn for his directing and acting..

2.0 out of 5 stars "The Victim Here Is You" November 24, 2012
Format:DVD
I love the old Micheal Biehn from "Aliens" and "The Terminator" but this 2000's Biehn is definitely off his game. Now I don't think his acting here was as bad as in "The Divide", it was still not one of his best efforts. Sub par story, crap acting and bad dialogue make "The Victim" a Victim of its own creator ultimately turning this into a bottom of the bin selection.

Two stripper party girls (Jennifer Blanc an Danielle Harris) go out with two cops to party in the woods, one of them gets murdered for having a big mouth during a sexual encounter and both cops try to cover it up. Meanwhile the other girl gets away and eventually finds old Biehn in his secluded cabin in the woods and begs him for help which he reluctantly does.

The acting is so bad that you can tell they're acting, it made me laugh more than anything. Daniel Harris really should have been the main girl and not the one who got murdered, in the end I think Jennifer Blanc got favoritism for being Biehns wife. "The Victim" is not really a horror movie and the one gore scene is actually botched when you see one victim's head smashed in with a rock in one scene than the next scene his head is just covered in blood and not smashed in anymore, too funny. If bad acting and editing mistakes were what they were aiming for, they hit it dead on.

If you really want to see "The Victim" make sure you rent it, if you skipped "The Victim" you missed absolutely nothing worth watching.

Not your number one movie but it was entertaining. I have always like him. It is a little on the "R" rated side so it is not for kids for sure.
