Bounty Killer (2013)
When the competition between corporations turns into a shooting war, civilisation is devastated. In the post-apocalyptic ruins that remain, being a white collar criminal is a capital offence, and the men and women who carry out the sentence are called Bounty Killers.
Two of the best of the Bounty Killer breed are the man named Drifter and his sometime partner, sometime rival, Mary Death. Their relationship has always been complicated but it's about to get really messy when a bounty gets put on Drifter's head. Seems the famous Bounty Killer has a secret: he was a corporate big wig back in the day.
Not that Mary Death doesn't have a few skeletons in her own closet ... homicidally dangerous skeletons, at that.
What a delightfully over the top bit of action movie bedlam this is. It hits the ground running and pretty much doesn't let up for its lean, mean sub-90 minute run time. It's got firefights, knife fights, fist fights, vehicle fights, and things exploding all over the place. Good times.
If you're a fan of any of the Mad Max films, or thought that any of the recent Fast and the Furious films were pretty good, but could use a few more scenes of lethally dangerous people tearing things up, you should check this film out.
I'm pretty sure this will get another turn in my DVD player sooner rather than later.
