Bounty Killer 4015114 Film Reviews

Like a spoof mash-up of Mad Max and Machete, this nutty action movie throws us into a Wild West dystopia with enough wit and energy to overcome its clunky production values. A whiff of serious subtext helps too. Although it's essentially just a riotous B-movie thrill ride without much of a plot.

The story takes place in the near future, after the Corporate Wars destroyed the world. Now the former company executives are under death warrants, chased by superstar bounty killers through the desolate landscape. One of the most notorious killers is Drifter (Marsden), who has a bounty on his head after sniffing too close to a major scandal. As he heads to the Council to clear his name, he and his new gun caddy Jack (Hardley) are chased by the glamourous killer Mary Death (Pitre). And all of them are being pursued by the relentless Van Sterling (Busey), whose shady boss (Loken) is working on some sort of nefarious plan.

The film's luridly colourful design echoes its graphic-novel origins, as do the comic-book animation segments. And the violence is relentlessly blood-spurting, keeping us laughing so we don't notice how cheesy the effects and action really are. Fortunately, everything is underscored with sardonic humour, rude jokes and melodramatic characters, each of whom has a torrid history. This allows for plenty of irrelevant innuendo, especially between the inexpressive Marsden and the striking Pitre.

Yes, everything here is outrageously over-the-top, including the D-list cameos that dot the screen and add to the film's garish ambience. Along the way, the only element we can engage with is the underlying commentary on the ultimate danger of corporate greed. Otherwise, this is just a ridiculous post-apocalyptic romp. If filmmaker Saine had a bit more money, and a surer grip on the material, this might have been a cult classic. As is, it's just a bit of trashy fun.

Michelle Rodriguez's Sex Tape Vow 2511075 News

Michelle Rodriguez would make a sex tape if she wanted to reveal her sexuality.

The 'Avatar' actress has long been rumoured to be bisexual or a lesbian despite insisting she isn't, and says if she had anything to prove to anyone she would do it on camera.

She said in an interview with Style magazine: "If I wanted to tell people what I do with my vagina, I'd have made a sex video a long time ago. Largely, people don't know the whole story about anything. But still they need to put a name on it so they can label it and put it on the side and not dedicate any time to figuring it out. It's laziness."

Rodriguez - who was romantically linked to her openly bisexual 'Bloodrayne' co-star Kristanna Loken in 2006 - also revealed she aspires to be like Angelina Jolie.

The 31-year-old actress admires 34-year-old Angelina - who is openly bisexual but currently in a long-term relationship with Brad Pitt - for the action-packed roles she takes on and the sexual energy she exudes.

She said: "I like women like Angelina Jolie because of her ability to harness masculine and feminine energy into one. There are certain people who are so sexual that it doesn't matter how old they get, they're still sexual. Angie, at 50, will still be sexual."
