Unbeknownst to the Outlaws and the Bounty Hunter is that another, more powerful man known only as The Finisher has plans of his own.
If you like Action film then try watching these films-
I'll start with the good points.
This is beyond crap. They stuck out by a country mile and showed everyone else how it's done. Only watch this one if you're having trouble sleeping.
There's no excuse for this at all … Lance never goes out of style.
But it's the earnestness of the whole thing that makes it worthwhile.
Lance Henriksen and Eric Roberts had very small roles to play,and in the very short time they had on screen,they showed just how superior their acting skills were compared to the rest of the cast. I couldn't figure out why they stuck Lance Henriksen in the role. Yes, this is a low budget film (IMDB estimates $250,000). This movie has to be a labor of love considering the quality of actors involved and the money allotted. If not, find something else. He is offered a big bounty for John Anson (Matthew Tompkins) who is surround by a band of men. It's good to see they are not above playing roles in small budget movies,but I have to wonder if they were embarrassed having seen the final result of this production.
I've seen Hollywood quality, 10 minute shorts on Youtube, filmed with an iPhone, produced by High School Students, that look, sound, and feel better than this movie. Senator bad guy, no shock there. This was some solid late night Syfy channel type fare. You'll be cured in 10 minutes. Tyson walks around in this one like he wants someone to shoot him in the head to put him out of his misery. take a deep breath and a moment to get past this because it caused economic collapse, death and wars, but the details are fuzzy…
Requisite slightly mad tribal leader with contrasting face paint. The story works, and any veteran of Sci Fi willing to add their own experience to the story can fill the gaps in believability. Haven't been able to find it.
If this was a confirmed pilot for a confirmed TV series I could easily have given it a 7/10. But as a standalone film it's fairly pointless and left me feeling frustrated and could not therefore give it any more than a 3/10. Right from the get go,I'll say say that this was yet another one of those movies that has a reasonably good plot that was let down by so many bad points from start to finish. End to end dramatic delivery. He finds out he's been dealt a bad hand and sets out to rectify it. They should put this film in The Sector.
Then there was the very noticeable plastic props. During his travels he meets Lance Henrikson who is from an alternate universe and that their universe has been dumping its problems into the other universe or the sector. Sure it's mega low budget, sure it has it's problems, but honestly I was never bored and the whole time I kept thinking of how much it reminded me of the recent Wesley Snipes film “Gallowwalkers” which I had just watched.
A lead character and supporting cast that look remarkably well fed for their apocalyptic environment. Vernon Wells did a good job playing the baddie which makes it worth at least 3 out of 10. As an independent film, the Sector is pretty effective. I can't wait for “Buddy Revell goes to Mars”. The blood from gunshots is cheesy CGI if that tells you anything. He gets hired to find a Father and his daughter who,unknown to him,have been sent from the other world.
If it was shot in a weekend for less than the cost of a small car then it's a classic.
I must point out at this point,it was unclear who's world was ours and who's was the alternate. now I'm gonna have to do something to work it off..” The cameos were a real treat and I never once thought any actor was thrown into the mix (just because) as the previous user stated. My favorite thing to do as a kid was browse the video store aisles and rent the biggest Blockbusters and to coincide with a Tom Cruise movie or whatever was hot at the time, I would also rent a lesser known independent film that had a cool cover or an actor or actress I recognized. Guide: No swearing or sex. This one seemed pretty original. You sneak home, I'm gonna be under your bed” You made me mad, Jerry…
(spoiler alert) I really didn't get the sub-plot, with the alternate reality nonsense, it was completely irrelevant. Bit parts that just made no sense to the plot of their film.
I have no idea who helped find the locations and created the sets for the film. Tyson as Dresher tracking down the low life scum John Hanson gave me a flash back to Tyson as Buddy Revell tracking down Jerry Mitchell in the high school cult film Three O'clock High. Was fortunate to find the DVD at Family Video. Maybe it's just me, but I felt like I was watching Buddy Revell 30 years later in a dystopian world with a fuzzy alternate universe plot line. This movie is no exception.
But, as a standalone film it's rather poor and frustrating as way to much information missing and an ending that makes you feel has the film been incorrectly edited with missing scenes and the last parts missing etc.
Feels like it desperately wanted to be picked up for a TV series. If video stores were still around, I would have picked up this movie on the art work and cast alone. okay… I mean really, at least put something on or over your “Toy” weapons; to hide the glare of the plastic from the camera. Our hero (Dresher) played by Richard Tyson (Buddy Revell himself) goes on a journey and encounters trouble and interesting characters along the way. It's a movie for a lazy Sunday or a late night watch. Butt nudity A decent effort for a reported $250,000£211,000 odd budget.
Would be nice to see a sequel to see where the story goes. It's a worthwhile way to spend a couple of hours, as long as your expectations are set appropriately. Cut to 2016 and things have changed, movies have changed as well as how they are made.
Then there was the digital blood; it looked noticeably fake. B movie doesn't mean bad film; for some reason people feel that producing a B-movie means, “Lets go make the worst low budget film ever”. It's the films that do have the funding and still come up ridiculously short is what bothers me… Very entertaining for fans of the genre.
Many portentous speeches. It just seemed like they wanted to get people to watch their movie; so they got certain celebs to show up for bit parts in their film.
This movie is badly shot, horribly scripted, and poorly cast.
Fun to see this kind of cast together since I've been watching them for as long as I can remember. Seeing Bennett from Commando, The Flash himself from the original and now Jay Garrick on the current Flash, Theo from Die Hard, Bishop from Aliens, and of course Maroni from the Dark Knight made me smile from ear to ear. Dresher (Richard Tyson) is a bounty hunter from Union City who drinks Red Eye and has no memory. Why did the black guy speak like he was from Africa in an old movie? Everything else was just plain bad from start to finish.
There are much better low budget movies of this genre out there. After a computer virus causes the apocalypse… If there is one, I'll definitely be watching. One of the biggest problems today is anyone with an internet connection can write up a review of any film at any time (just as I am doing right now). Most people who write reviews are haters and I don't believe in being “cyber- brave” and just slandering someone's work. WARNING: THIS MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS…
I grew up loving all sorts of movies. The film has a cool twist at the end that took a very simple Sci- fi film into a complex one. And holy crap Jay Garrick is in this movie! You've got Lance Henriksen, Vernon Wells, Eric Roberts, the guy from Flash, couple of actors from TV's Walker Texas Ranger. The Sector merupakan film paling buruk yang pernah aku nonton, begitu membosankan, sangat sangat jelek dan mengerikan, jangan buang buang waktu mu untuk menonton film bodoh ini. In that sense, I must respectfully disagree with the above user's review of this film. It involves seedy Government/Business types sending the trash and unwanted population into an alternate reality/universe where our bounty hunter hero (Dresher) exists,making a living taking on jobs for an organisation called The Union. The film is way muddled and just boring. I'm a sucker for sci-fi post apocalyptic films but this wasn't worth the watch.
The silly cliché stuff was the best part of the film.
The only reason I ticked the spoiler box was to say this movie seems to be setting up a sequel. Was that digital blood? They even set up a sequel.
There were several actors in the film that I wished had better lines or bigger roles in the film. The script,acting,editing,minimal sfx,music,all contributed to a pretty boring experience to be honest. okay downright furry. I give films like this a break due to the fact the producers clearly didn't have a lot of funding. Hopefully this get released on Netflix. In closing, watch the movie, decide for yourself, most reviews are written by people with an axe to grind, most of them failed filmmakers, I always believe the truth lies in the middle and that's why I'll give the sector 5 out of 10. Another post apocalyptic flick where Richard Tyson roams the wastelands as a bounty hunter. I do wish that Eric Roberts and Clarence Gilyard Jr. had some more screen time but they still worked well within the story.
I won't go further into the story line but suffice to say,it was the ONLY good thing about this movie.
And given how many good actors fall out of favor and kinda slide into obscurity, I gotta hand it to Lance Henriksen for keeping busy and being the big fish in a small pond. I appreciate that in the movie world,coming up with an original idea that nobody else has thought of must be an extremely hard thing to do. The cult scene was done poorly. But who really caught my eye is the lead, the bounty hunter played by Richard Tyson.
The writer and director do not understand less is more.
Plinky plinky piano and twang twang bass line score.
I'm not expecting great direction or editing, which means the story line might be confusing, or the ending might kinda drag out. The twist is mentioned in the IMDb story line. Though sadly there seems to be no sign of a TV series being in development so who knows what the intent of this film really was. They could have at least used filters for the shoots, set up lighting, and found barren settings to film in if they had a low budget to no-budget. I thought the twist made the film silly as if they attempted to combine two different films into one. It's not a masterpiece by any means, but I didn't rent this thinking it would be. He goes out into “The Barrens” to hunt his bounties. This time, can we cast Casey Seimaszko as an annoying sidekick? Oh yeah, Eric Roberts has a cameo… I couldn't figure out why they cast the actor that they had as the protagonist. About 50 minutes into the film, things get weird when we meet Lance Henriksen and the whole plot becomes more inane than the computer virus taking down the planet.
In reality it feels more a feature length TV series pilot than a film as clearly it feels and looks to have been a setup for a TV series than a standalone film.
Everyone has a smoldering look. I would definitely recommend it. “You try and run, I'm gonna track you down. Tyson as Dresher evokes the same intelligent menace as he did as Buddy Revell. That film probably had five times the budget this film did and was way worse (IMO). What I did enjoy about The Sector is that is started with a very simple and familiar premise and it escalated into something I wasn't expecting. Real, proper, Shakespeare like delivery from nearly everyone. If you're looking for Eric Roberts he does his usual 2 minute scene, near the end.
