Scott Adkins, Robert Knepper, Rhona Mitra, Temuera Morrison, Ann Truong, Adam Saunders, Peter Hardy, Sean Keenan
Retired mixed martial artist Wes “The Jailor” Baylor can’t refuse a million dollar purse he’s offered for one final bout in Myanmar. But when he arrives for the fight, he learns he’s been tricked into becoming the target of a human hunt. Carrying only water and a ruby-filled money belt ruby-filled money belt for the last person standing.
An action packed movie filled with great fighting sequences. The movie itself had a decent plot and the acting was ok.
This movie is just another in a wide range of movies where people are taken to a remote place and hunted for sport. The one movie that stands out in comparison is The Condemned Starring Stone Cold Steve Austin. In Comparison this movie just doesn’t have the star power to get excited about.
Scott Adkins does a good job portraying a man lost after the he was responsible for the death of a friend during and MMA bout, but it seems to be a meaningless plot point for the entire story until the end. It never seems to drive him even though the movie touches on it multiple times throughout the film.
Even with some of the odd storylines through out the movie, I must say there was a lot to like about Hard Target 2. Its defiantly falls into he “Movie for Guys that like Movies” and is a great Saturday afternoon movie. Let us know what your thoughts of the movie were and leave your comments below.
