Good Rutger Film!

Rutger's the MAN! I found this film at Best Buy about 4 or 5 months after September 11th, and it just hit the spot! I had never heard of the movie but being a Rutger fan I usually will spend the money to add his films to my ever growing collection. Sometimes he's the only thing that adds to the life of some very dreary films and he's in a bunch of them. The '80's however seems to have been his decade and this film is a pretty good outing for him. It is in the B-Movie range, for sure, but it works well. Gene Simmons plays a great villain. The action and pacing of the film works well, and frankly the subject matter couldn't be more up-to-date. I wish they were making more movies like this today where the terrorists get what they deserve and the audience can enjoy the pay back and feel like they are participating in the action. The very end of the film is great and it certainly is a statement that works even better today. I think most people would feel the same way as Rutger does at the end of this movie and want to do the same thing. I certainly did! For fans of action and/or Rutger hunt this movie down!

My favorite action film a classic from Rutger Hauer R.I.P. I miss you

Actor Rutger Hauer died and a lot of us fans we miss the guy so much. Wanted: Dead or Alive is a favorite action film a classic in my view. I just finished watching it. The Hitcher would be my all time favorite movie from Rutger Hauer, because no one could play the character John Ryder like Rutger did. Rutger Hauer is a bad-ass in here named Nick Randall a Los Angeles bounty hunter and an ex-CIA operative, who is asked by a former co-worker to help track down terrorist Malak Al Rahim (Gene Simmons). Ruger Hauer against terrorists excellent they don't make action movie like this. I love that Rutger is a good guy in this movie. I like these action movies from the 80's a lot, it is a damn good action movie. I love this movie to death, I love the soundtrack Don't 'cha Know That? by Simon Stokes. Excellent performence from Rutger hauer I love that he smiles. Tones of action, Rutger blasts bad guys to pieces. Rutger Hauer is one man army in here. This is my favorite action film. I love One man Army type action movies: this movie (Wanted: Dead or Alive), The Hitcher, Blind Fury and Blade Runner are bad-ass movies Rutger Hauer ever did. I love and idolizing him so much. Wanted: Dead or Alive is my favorite action film. Why this movie is not on Blu-ray disc it deserves a better treatment. R.I.P. Rutger Hauer I miss you this is his best movie great acting performence. I love Rutger with a Remington 870 shotgun in his hand. I really miss the guy so much, I love the soundtrack Don't 'cha Know That? by Simon Stokes and a good action sequences. There was this girl who was a girlfriend of Malak Al Rahim (Gene Simmons) I don't know the actress name but would love to see a gun fight between Randall and that girl and I wish that Nick would blow her to dust that would be great. But in the movie she wasn't shot and blown away by Rutger. Still a damn good action movie they don't make em like this anymore.

Wanted:Dead or Alive

Rutger Hauer stars as Nick Randall, a bounty hunter, ex-CIA, called into a case to capture(..dead, preferably alive)a wanted terrorist, Malak Al Rahim(..played by Gene Simmons, an undeniably good heavy)whose Arab organization is bombing selected locations across Los Angeles. When Malak kills Randall's girlfriend and cop buddy(..a boat bombing intended for him), it gets personal. The premise is pretty much a by-the-numbers actioner, a skilled hunter after a dangerous terrorist and his dedicated followers while the CIA often look foolish in their attempts to capture their quarry themselves. The real fun for me, being a Rutger Hauer fan, is seeing the man do his thing..he's perfect for a role such as this, a specialist at hunting down and securing the dregs and lowlifes of society, dangerous criminals the police have a hard time capturing, often earning a wealthy pay day in the process. Simmons, while limited to a small number of scene, is quite effective as a cold-blooded Islamic extremist who bombs a theater full of innocent people(..leaving behind his hand print on the window of a phone booth, teasing the authorities)just to make a point..a chilling moment shows Malak greeting a little girl who was walking into the theater with her parents. Robert Guillaume is a CIA officer, Walker, who lures Randall into taking the job of nabbing Malak, helping him along the way with certain information to assist in the search. William Russ, in a thankless role, ably portrays Randall's best friend Sergeant Danny Quintz..his tragic fate, in an effort to help out his pal, certainly amps the frequency, adding extra motivation for Randall to take out the Arab scumbags. Jerry Hardin has the stereotypical role of incompetent CIA leader, Lipton, needing the help of others to catch the bad guys..how he uses Randall as bait in an attempt to get to Malak bares extra emphasis on the joy of seeing him fail at his job. There's always a tug-of-war between Walker and Lipton, over the treatment of Randall. The real fun is watching Randall evading Lipton's men on the street while also successfully uncovering Malak's operation through the various underlings who work for him. Randall is indeed a role tailor-made for Hauer, whose effortless cool and charisma transcends the rather so-so material. Pretty predictable outcome, but satisfying conclusion as Randall gets his revenge and then some. Pretty violent, with lots of people getting shot.
