The ending is over the top, and unjustified, on account of both party's, but then as she did steal their guns, beat them senseless, and steal their van, yet she is the one taking revenge. Redefining this conflict as a battle of wills makes for a much more entertaining film. The rest of the film was pretty good too, but it's that one scene that sticks in my mind. That's it really and you get that from the start. Him and his mates are surely not doing her a favor.
Noted elsewhere, the premise of this film isn't original. Dans un futur non défini, les réserves de pétrole sont épuisées et la violence règne sur le monde. The more Jessica stands up to their taunts and manhandling, however, the more aggressive and violent the hunters become until what began as almost a form of roughhouse flirting turns into a life-or-death struggle for dominance. It's only when Jessica refuses to back down and accept their crude, schoolboy torments that their behavior lethally escalates. A lot of the action was unique and haunting. La suite est une série de métamorphoses surréalistes.
Jessica runs a wildlife reservation in the middle of the outback, so naturally there's a vicious conflict when she bumps into a trio of insensitive and macho poachers doing some illegal kangaroo hunting on her territories. I disagree with other reviewers claiming that she incites the violence. Fair Game is arguably pitched between Straw Dogs and Wake in Fright, with the obnoxious poachers running riot for the most part, but getting their comeuppance in fine style. Beautifully shot and making the most of the Outback location, had it not had the occasional scene that takes place in the town, it could easily be mistaken for post-apocalyptic in scope. Fair Game 1986 Streaming Francais Jessica, une jeune femme dirigeant une réserve naturelle en Australie, retrouve plusieurs cadavres de kangourous dans les environs de sa ferme.
Fair Game is a bad film on all accounts, except the presence of Cassandra Delaney. John Denver is actually a very potent lady who fights back from the beginning and never really allows her opponents to get the upper hand. The two goons in particular are stupidly written and acted, though not in an annoying way. Arrayed against him and the other scraggly defendants of a fuel-depot encampment are the bizarre warriors commanded by the charismatic Lord Humungus, a violent leader whose scruples are as barren as the surrounding landscape. Be warned that it is not for the faint-hearted. A woman in charge of a wildlife sanctuary in Australia is terrorized on the road by two men in a beastly pickup truck and another man in a truck with a shark painted on the back doors. Tout commence sur un balcon où un homme aiguise un rasoir.
The scenery and locations are gorgeous and the action scenes are among the best. I would go to a movie just to see her. A lot of the action was unique and haunting. As the video box indicates, they strap her to the hood of their pickup and drive her around. Eagle-eyed viewers might spot a male predator far more despicable than any of Fair Game's villains lurking in an advert for paint in the background of the outback convenience store.
A young woman running a wildlife sanctuary in the Australian outback is in for trouble when she is confronted by three kangaroo hunters. Also interesting Outback scenery and action. The acting performances are more than satisfying and I'm pleased to notice the cast exclusively exists of native Australians. A young woman takes on some restless kangaroo poachers who go onto make her life hell, when she confronts them about killing animals on her wildlife sanctuary. He seems to be a mechanic. It's clear that the filmmakers wanted to do a revenge picture but I just found this to be so poorly written that at times it became comical. A woman who owns an isolated vast wildlife reservation realizes that her Roos and other animals are being illegally hunted by some local hooligans.
I say that because the female character here constantly puts herself in more and more danger to the point where it turns deadly. John Denver is actually a very potent lady who fights back from the beginning and never really allows her opponents to get the upper hand. Glad I didn't have to watch animals being tortured though. I enjoyed the rural Australian scenery; that was interesting to me; the remoteness helped give some credibility to the lawless villains. What amazed me and the thing I found quite disappointing was that it started to become a cult film in some parts of the world and people were taking it seriously. Fair Game is a thriller that's more intellectually intriguing than emotionally gripping, but it's still worth watching.
This better-than-you'd-expect Aussie revenge thriller pits a young female wildlife refuge ranger against a trio of moronic imbeciles who terrorize her in a senseless cat-and-mouse game in the great outback. Unfortunately, Casasandra later married John Denver in real life and turned to music. A very interesting movie indeed! Also interesting Outback scenery and action. Glad I didn't have to watch animals being tortured though. Not just another pretty face--John Denver's baby. The interactions between Jessica and the poachers start off like a testosterone-laden showdown, but then gradually escalate into a merciless battle with humiliation, rape and murder. Just good old boys having fun, that's all.
It's a lot better than you're led to believe. The interactions between Jessica and the poachers start off like a testosterone-laden showdown, but then gradually escalate into a merciless battle with humiliation, rape and murder. And like that other reviewer pointed out, a heroine that you want to root for. By which I mean, the narrative feels like it consists of a series of unconnected sequences, rather than ones which flow into each other. Cassandra Delaney who looks lovely and spends the quite bit time in the flesh brings a genuine grittiness and sympathetic side to a strong, capable character. But the film does run on two little.
I am disappointed, as this had possibility. These Aussie filmmakers take that concept in a refreshingly interesting direction. The locations on the beautiful Flinders Rangers, work to this film's benefit. Technically speaking, the film is a mixed bag: performances are strong and the cinematography is very stylish the scenery looks great and the shots of the hunter's truck are very effective, the vehicle taking on a persona more menacing than the men themselves ; however, the soundtrack is diabolical: none of the awful '80s music complements the action. I thought, if people are taking this seriously, then I don't think I can make this sort of material.
