Wes: “I'm a fighter. They told me there was gonna be a fight. The fight turned out to be a hunt.”
release year: 2016
viewing setting: home Bluray 6/28/17
synopsis: A former MMA fighter gets tricked into being human prey for crazy hunters.
impressions: It was entertaining and exactly what I'd have expected from a direct-to-video sequel: plenty of fighting and action and explosions, a basic but solid plot, and some over-the-top characters.

Robert Knepper (who has a history of playing bad guys) channels Lance Henriksen from the original movie here, delivering a scenery-chewing main bad guy. Temuera Morrison (who played Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequels) is the #1 evil henchman. Rhona Mitra is an insane female hunter. Ann Truong is a villager who helps the main gu Temuera Morrison (who played Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequels) is the #1 evil henchman. Rhona Mitra is an insane female hunter. Ann Truong is a competent villager who helps the main guy.
final word: Gets the job done, worth seeing.
