The new film from Henry Saine (The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu) ‘Bounty Killer’ is coming to DVD on October 29th. This will be one to grab as the film is so much fun you will want to see it again and again. From the start you can tell this comes from a comic inspired graphic novel. The kills and action are over the top and it works perfectly. Bounty Killer is a treat any action fan would love. Bounty Killer is sick! Bounty Killer is what Machete Kills Again should have been!
Bounty Killer stars Matthew Marsden (Resident Evil: Extinction) as the drifter. He is the first true bounty killer. In the future there is a war waged by major corporations and in the aftermath a resistance of killers hired to take down white collared mongols is born. These are the bounty killers. The most famous killer Mary Death (Christian Pitre/Crazy Stupid Love) has a history with the drifter but that won't stop the onslaught of violence headed their way.
Outside of a few unnecessary parts that drag there is not to much to dislike about Bounty Killers. The film compares itself to Mad Max but I had more of a Smoking Aces feeling from watching this movie. The comedy of co star Barak Hardley is spot on and helps keep this film from being a pure shoot em up popcorn flick. Now don't get me wrong there is more than enough gun play in Bounty Killer and even know the story is dense its still one of the more entertaining films I have seen this year.
For horror fans don’t sleep on Bounty Killer as the kills in this movie would make Victor Crowley from the Hatchet franchise smile. There is gore a plenty especially when the gypsies led by Eve Jeffers arrive.. I haven’t seen or heard anything from her lately so it was nice to see her in Bounty Killer. There are tons of head splitting shotgun blasting scenes which were surprisingly done very well. I will have to applaud the director for truly stepping his game up from his previous film. If you are looking for something a tad bit more serious you may want to pass on this. But if you a looking for an entertaining and intense thrill ride Bounty Killers is a must see on your list. As noted earlier this film comes out on October the 29th. May not be your typical Halloween masked man killer but in regards to the blood and gore Bounty Killer is up for the task! Make sure you check out Bounty Killer when it arrives on the shelves as I’m sure you will add this to your collection. Also watch the credits to see the awesome blooper roll.
