Can Austin Contend With The Wilderness, Villians, And His Own Daughter?,
This review is from: Hunt To Kill (DVD)
Steve Austin multi-picture deal with Anchor Bay films has resulted in another direct to DVD feature here in "Hunt To Kill." Austin stars as a Jim Rhodes, a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Montana, who has his daughter with him on Winter vacation with them having a strained relationship. She gets caught shoplifting & is being held in the local sheriff's office for him to come pick her up. Meanwhile a band of robbers in Las Vegas were betrayed by one of their own members of the team who takes off with all the loot leading the head villian Banks (Gil Bellows) to the same Sheriff's office where Rhodes & his daughter is. From there, Rhodes is forced to lead the band of criminals throught the wilderness with so many issues being dealt with such as the villians turning on each other, his daughter being held hostage while she's still having issues & conflict with him, and just trying to survive in the wild.
Most of the action in this movie consist of using weapons (shooting weapons like guns & a crossbow) along with an explosion & some stunts but there are two fights with one being between Rhodes & Banks along with one of two mini reunions from the "Expendables" movie with Austin's character fighting Gary Daniels' character of Jensen. Your also treated to another "Expendables" reunion in the beginning of the movie between Steve Austin & a cameo made by Eric Roberts. Overall I enjoyed this more than his previous DVD flick "The Stranger" but that doesn't say much as the plot was very basic but some of the characters were too "cartoonish" for my taste & none of the action here really got an emotion out me unlike Austin's previous roles in "The Expendables" , "The Condemded", or "Damaged." In the end, I would only recommend renting this if you have around 90 mins. of your life that you won't miss but besides that...you can pass on this too.
