This movie will resonate more for those who've caught the original WANTED: DEAD OR ALIVE, which was a television western series back in the late '50s. It starred an up-and-coming Steve McQueen, who was and still is just about the epitome of cool. McQueen's character was Josh Randall, a bounty hunter of few words who let "Mare's Laig" - his nifty 1892 44/40 center fire Winchester carbine - do the talking for him. And I guess this paragraph turned out to be a pimpfest for Steve McQueen's western show. Eh, so be it. It's certainly worth checking out.
But back to Rutger Hauer Classic Cinema. Rutger Hauer plays Nick Randall, the great-grandson of Josh Randall and also a bounty hunter in Los Angeles, and, yeah, it's a bummer that there weren't enough connections or references made to tie in with Steve McQueen's character. Nick Randall is a loner, and he's looking to make a big enough score so that he can fix up his grungy boat. But then his past comes back to bite him.
Gene Simmons, from the band KISS, back then was trying to branch out from white make-up and from sticking out his tongue, and, in the '80s he took on a few villainous roles. Here, Gene brings understated menace to the screen as Middle Eastern terrorist Malak Al Rahim, although Gene never does end up sounding Middle Eastern.Read more ›
