Poor Brendan Fraser.  Man, I always give guy a chance but this film was really hard to finish. The plot starts off pretty interesting but really get quite repetitive and drawn out very quickly. Dominic Purcell is pretty bad ass, no question. Ethan Suplee does a good job as well playing a man with a mental handicap.  Overall, the acting feels very stiff from everyone. I definitely understand now why this film got banished direct-to-video. I know Brendan Fraser might be a draw but I would breakout of that urge and avoid this. There are no special features included on this DVD either, nor was this film released on Blu-ray disc.

Official Premise: An innocent camping trip takes a dark turn for a young brother and sister, when they witness a murder. The young siblings become the killers’ next target as they are chased and hunted through the wilderness. Serving time over a protest gone terribly wrong, their father, Jack Damson (Fraser), devises a plan to break out of prison and rescue his kids from the pair of criminals, Tommy (Purcell) and Kenny (Suplee). A fight for survival ensues in the action-packed thriller where the hunters become the hunted.
