Hunting human beings for sport has been a fixture of exploitation cinema since The Most Dangerous Game in 1932. However, the latest crime caper from the insanely prolific Jimmy Henderson – who brought us the equally badass Jailbreak (LFF 2017) – gives this genre staple a barrel-kick to the guts. Chinese undercover cop Xin (Gu Shang Wei) is arrested during a raid on a gang he infiltrated, but handles himself well in prison. Unfortunately, he has been targeted by the corrupt prison warden (Only God Forgives’ Vithaya Pansringarm), who is in the business of inviting rich businessmen on human hunting expeditions in a nearby forest. In the meantime, the Chinese government has picked up on Xin’s trail, having found a signal from his GPS device. When the two teams unexpectedly converge, it’s just the beginning of a battle for survival.
