Enhance your purchase
The legendary “Muscles from Brussels” Jean-Claude Van Damme (No Retreat, No Surrender, Kickboxer) teams up with world-famous action director John Woo (The Killer, Hard Boiled, Face/Off) and executive producer Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, Spider-Man) for this electrifying thriller. Chance Boudreaux (Van Damme) is the target of an evil mercenary (Lance Henriksen, Aliens) who recruits combat veterans for the “amusement” of his clients—bored tycoons who will pay a half a million dollars to stalk and kill the most challenging prey of them all: Man. So when beautiful Natasha Binder (Yancy Butler, TV’s Witchblade) hires Chance in search of her missing father, she gets more than she bargained for. Screenwriter Chuck Pfarrer (Darkman) takes “The Most Dangerous Game” and laces it with dark humor and slam-bang action for the hard-hitting Hard Target, featuring Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy), Kasi Lemmons (The Silence of the Lambs) and Wilford Brimley (The Thing).

Involves a wicked run mercenary group racket hiring homeless veterans for amusement to hunt by clients tycoons played to take part and kill.laced with dark humour. van damm gets caught up by helping a women searching for reasons and becomes a target of lance henriksen hunt forces him to use all his skills standing up to them fending off and making a stand.enthralling electrifying action stuff good sequences.keep you absorbed in watching. Worth viewing.
a great story and great production values make this one of Van Dammes best movies. Homeless people are being hunted for money by rich people. One guy gets killed, and his daughter is looking for him. Just as she is about to get mugged by some goons, good old Van Damme saves the day.
She then pays him money to help her find dad. When he turns up dead, Van Damme finds himself involved in the game. Now the hunters become the hunted.
Fantastic from beginning to end, Hard Target is more of a fairy tale than a proper action movie if you read between the lines. Van Damme can run down a road quicker than it takes a bike to get him there. Guns never seem to run out of bullets, and the damsel in distress gets saved in the nick of time.
We never really learn much about Van Dammes character, which leaves a bit of mysticism to him. Being a Woo movie, you expect over the top set pieces, and he doesn't fail to deliver.
From a desolate street, to a warehouse shootout, Woo pulls no punches, and knows that every death is as absurd as the last.
camera-work is good, and there are some good tricks used throughout to make the film a little more tense.
it's a showcase for director and star, and neither fails to impress.
funny, crazy, guilty pleasure stuff.
Sadly it has not aged well. The effects are badly dated and the story is full of worn out cliches.
Still love van damme's mullet mind.
3 stars maybe more than it deserves and if I didn't have nostalgic memories of love for this film, it would probably be a 2.
i hold in high regard. But Hard Target is a bit special,
everything looks great, moves great & sounds great. Great!.
Director John Woo can do this type of stuff with his eyes shut
and his style smothers the whole film. Excellent.
Loads of slow mo, tons of face close ups & a shed load of bullets.
Wilford Brimley seems to be having a whale of a time, and is
also double funny, whilst Lance Henriksen menaces.
Nearly forgot, this is the U.K 18 cert Blu Ray, and the picture
fills the whole of a modern T.V (1.85:1) and looks great. Personally
i'd say it was uncut, but don't hold me to that, check out some of the
quality reviews and you should get more precise info. Top draw entertainment.
