'Hard Hunted: Special Edition' [Blu-ray]
(Dona Speir, Roberta Vasquez, R.J. Moore, et al / Blu-ray + Digital / R / (1993) 2020 / Mill Creek Entertainment)
Overview: R.J. Moore (the son of Roger) stars as gun-runner Kane, who becomes the target of three female super agents in this action film from Andy Sidaris.
Blu-ray Verdict: After the surprisingly entertaining 'Do or Die,' Andy Sidaris slips back into mediocre mode for 'Hard Hunted,' an unspectacular espionage/action tale that see his sexy federal agents from the Hawaiian paradise of Molokai tasked with recovering a nuclear weapons trigger hidden inside a small jade statuette.
There's a bit more to the plot than that, but let's be honest ... you didn't come here to find out about the intricacies of the storyline, did you?
What you want to know is if film delivers when it comes to cheesy action, big-breasted babes in skimpy outfits brandishing guns, and soft-core sex scenes?!
The answer is that there is certainly lots of T&A on show, with series regulars Dona Speir, Roberta Vasquez, and Cynthia Brimhall all stopping for a spot of nookie amidst the gunfire and chases!
But, sadly, the action scenes are, for the most part, rather disappointing, with only Al Leong in his rocket-launching gyro-copter (which makes some seriously strange noises as it flies) providing the kind of dumb fun we've come to expect from a Sidaris movie.
In closing, and seventh in the "Bullets & Babes" series, 'Hard Hunted' is a BIG success within its genre, but as an action adventure, well, it's sadly lacking and very tame.
