I liked it because it was so horribly creepy. I guess I prefer a clear demarcation between the good guy and the bad guy. So it was a little too long, still very much good entertainment.

Could not get past the first 5 minutes. Terrible acting.

Suspenseful. Riveting. Predictable. And they kinda ruined things with the "second" ending, but you'll probably cheer anyway (I did). Michael Douglas is the perfect big wig, high-roller a--hole.

It's Beyond Belief that Michael Douglas was involved in such a low budget stinker. I realize the offers may be becoming fewer these days but this predictable David vs. Goliath joke was Beyond Reproach.

A 45-minute story told in a 90-minute movie. And a long commercial for an overpriced, overloaded Mercedes-Benz truck.

An aging Gordon Gekko type of guy came into a small town (in reality, not Mojave Desert but beyond the reaches of the four corners in a Navajo Reservation NM) to hunt bighorns. ... The film should have ended about 10 minutes sooner without the final twist in mho.

Not worth it, very weak everything.

Pretty average in every way. Not terrible, but far from good.

Most of the movie took place out in the desert. Not 1 of Michael Douglass' great works. This movie was rather boring.

There are too many new good movies around to waste time with this one.

Ben: He's gonna lie.
Sheriff: I'm sure he's gonna say the same thing about you.
Ben: Yeah, but I can't pay you to believe me.

Medec: I've been thinking about you. Sometimes you got to clean up your own mess.

Medec: I'm no amateur, okay, kid? I mean, I've got the horns to prove it. Rhino, elephant.
Ben: Trophies, huh? So that's your thing?
Medic: Well, it sure isn't for the company or the frills. There ain't no greater exercise

Ben: Morning, Sheriff.
Sheriff: Ready to earn?
Ben: Yeah, black-tail or bear?
Sheriff: Bighorn.
Ben: Little early in the season, isn't it?
Sheriff: Seems he got himself a special exemption. Got connections, I reckon. Some kind of big shot. ... He's paying a grand per day. Kind of makes you overlook the little things.

Medec fired a shot --
Ben: What are you doing?
Medec: I'm just warming up.
Ben: When you fire your weapon, you frighten the game.
Medec: They're already frightened. That's why they're being hunted.
Ben: You forgetting something?
Medec: Hmm?
Ben: Your brass.
Medec: That's your job.
Ben: You been hunting long?
Medec: Probably before you were wearing Huggies, kid.
Ben: Your Steyr looks brand-new.
Medec: Well, I take care of my equipment.
Ben: Sounds like you have other people do it.
