Bounty Hunters was a decent comedic action film, but I don't think it warranted a sequel on its own merits. For some reason, such a sequel does exist, and to my surprise, it's a more enjoyable feature. I doubt that I'll ever be a true-blue fan of Michael Dudikoff, but as far as my limited experience with him goes, this film's one of the good ones.

The story: After the team of bounty hunters Jersey (Dudikoff, American Ninja series) and B.B. (Lisa Howard, Highlander) separate, Jersey is targeted by an up-and-coming underworld commander (Steve Bacic, Tactical Force). The duo will need to team up anew to extinguish the mafia threat.

I've said these things before - Lisa Howard deserves more starring roles of this kind and Michael Dudikoff should play fun characters more often. The energetic, humorous script gives them a lot of material to work with, and the two have great chemistry together; I wouldn't mind seeing another installment just to see them bounce off each other. The majority of the movie's focus is on Michael, but Lisa is equally responsible for making it entertaining and keeping up the snappy pace. Kudos also go to Steve Bacic for being the only character who comes close to the first film's over-the-top standard, as well as to Pablo Coffey (Devil's Diary) for playing a demolition assassin who I found interesting enough to wish he had more scenes.

There are some aspects of the screenplay that I could do without, including how Jersey and B.B. spend the first half of the movie fruitlessly bickering with each other. Also absent are all booby-traps from the previous film. Back on the good side of things, the action content isn't stellar but still pretty enjoyable. The majority of the adrenaline scenes are fights, with only a couple shootouts and a few explosions in the second half of the picture, and while these brawls leave much to be desired, they're still interesting and athletic. Howard in particularly has improved between films, and delivers some pretty fluid and flexible kicks. Dudikoff also does well enough, and if his lengthy poolside brawl alongside Lisa doesn't entertain you, then perhaps the one they have in a car wash will do the trick. You don't often get to see film characters duel with mops and squeegees.

If Amazon offered ratings of 3.5 stars, they would more accurately reflect my opinion of the film. Nevertheless, it's such an active little piece that it successfully scrapes for that full fourth star. Devoted Dudikoff die-hards definitely should give this one a look, while general fans of mid-90s fare should also peek.

This is as funny and good as the first. In this one they live together. They are both bounty hunters. They end up stopping a rubbery and because Michael ends up taking three of the men in and having a rubbery go wrong, there ends up being a price on his head. These men try time after time to kill him and they can't. Things happen in the movie that I found funny and it was a joy to watch.

This is actually on the par of those made for Cinemax or Showtime movies, actually better. There's a degree of comedic interplay between Dudikoff and Howard that's entertaining enough to raise the basic material. I liked it enough that I went out and bought the first Hard Bounty and found that just as good.

I gave this movie the rating I did because I liked the actor Michael Dudikoff in the American Ninja. After watching this movie I was not real impressed with it but it was watchable.
Thanks
Dan

This one was a little different than i thought. The cast was the same but action seemed forced a bit. I know its hard to make a good squeal but i guess sometimes you have to give it a shot but a bit of a miss.
