Summary: [3.5] not bad for a lorenzo lamas film
Comment: Lorenzo is one of my least favorite martial arts actors. His performances are typically wooden, and his athletic skills are not very memorable. This movie, however, has more to offer thus making it a more enjoyable film. The suspense and action are fine, and Matthias Hues is always an added enjoyment as the "calm & cool, yet unpredictable" villain role that he adds to most of his performances. There are some downsides, and that includes a lousy finale fight scene and some downtime in the plot.

The first half of Bounty Tracker actually appealed to me the most. Lorenzo Lamas is established as "the bounty tracker" after entering an all-black club, dressed as a nerdy college professor, to eventually surprise his target inside. The bad guys entrance in the film is pretty explosive too, taking out a small corporation of people using silencers - adding to the suspense. While attempting to protect the one survivor - the brother to the Lorenzo Lamas character - the bad guys come for round two and manage to make this kill, sending Lamas out for revenge.

The gun scenes are somewhat frightening, with the use of silencers, and the fights (though not lengthy) are staged somewhat well. There is a dojo fight scene that is one of the best in the film. However, the fighting seemed to have gotten lazy later on, and the finale between Lorenzo Lamas and Matthias Hues was rushed and very unoriginal and uninspiring, lasting under two minutes. And it is a short 2 minutes that Hues gets beaten up too easily for a villain his size.

Its an ok movie overall, and rather decent for a Lorenzo Lamas film. Matthias Hues is fun to watch, and there is some good suspense, otherwise, that's about it.

Comment: This is one of Lorenzo's best. This has very well done chereographed fight scenes added with a bit of creativity. I like the techno song that was playing when he walked into the nightclub at the start of the movie does anyone know what the title or who the artist is? Im pretty sure its the same tune that played in Cage 2 with Lou ferringo. Anyway, the main reason for liking this movie is that the acting wasnt so bad and it had a good plot as well! Lorenzo Lams is a bounty hunter and visits his brother to witness his murder. The killer is a mercenary (Matthias Hues) and vengeance is on the go for Lorenzo who is majorlly pissed off and wont hold back for anyone who will stand in his way.

Summary: Bounty Tracker
Comment: Matthias Hues did an exeptional job with this character and bringing Erik Gauss to life from the script pages. Lorezo Lamas did a fine job but could have shown more of his experience that he has aquired over the years. The martials arts was performed well and executed with percision. Technique was very well done. I found the plot to be suspensful and action packed. There were, in my opinion no lulls in the script. All in all, definately one of Matthias Hues' best movies to date.
