GOOD FLICK FROM STONE COLD

HUNT TO KILL

I have to admit that I have enjoyed all of Steve Austin's films and this is no different. I thought going in that this was going to be different but it turned out pretty good. Sure this is not as great as the film he did previous to this one called "Damage" but still it is good. I have always been a fan of these types of flicks so of course I should have known I would like this. Plus three guys from "The Expendables" are in this film so that is cool.

The film follows Jim Rhodes who is a border patrol agent in Texas who loses his partner when they go into a situation without backup. So now he lives in Montana with his daughter trying to forget all that had happened. But a gang of criminals are in his town looking for a former member of their group who screwed them out of their last score. So while in town they kill the sheriff and take Rhodes and his daughter hostage and make them lead them through the forest looking for their former partner. Now Rhodes has to find a way to keep his daughter safe and get them out of this situation without getting killed.

This is of course a straight to DVD low budget affair so it does not have the production value of Austin's "The Condemned" but it still looks very good. Plus I just love the story here although it has been done before; still I always enjoy these types of flicks. Austin is great at this action type flick and has a good charismatic personality to carry it. The villains and his daughter are all great here as well but at times some seem a bit over the type but still it is fun to watch. All these personalities in the woods trying not to kill each other, and then very much trying to makes for a fun watch.

The action here is really fun and great to just chill and watch, although sometimes it is a bit much at times. Not that I didn't like it but Austin's second fall is a bit much after the first time he falls down the side of a cliff. Other than that it is a fun shoot em up and slugfest B action flick. Keoni Waxman direction is great here as he knows how to shoot this beautiful forest. He keeps the pace quick and the action fast and used Frank Hannah's script well.

Austin is excellent here and that always helps when the lead is someone who can carry a flick. I really enjoyed this one although I would say it is not his best film. Still I would highly recommend this flick to any action film fan or fan o Austin. It was a fun flick that myself and my brother had a good time checking out.

I have no idea why I haven't heard about this one...I think it may be worth a rental. I saw one where Steve played someone doing bets on fighting--it wasn't that bad. Nice one Alex!
