Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 04/06/1989

"That this engrossing adventure is a serious humanistic statement and a plea for concord between races should be obvious..."

Product Description:

A white hunter is given a "sporting chance" at escape by a group of tribesmen angered by the senseless slaughter of elephants. Literally naked, he must make effective use of all of his hunting skills to escape. Beautiful cinematography in this realistic and almost dialogue-free film. Academy Award Nominations: Best (Original) Story and Screenplay.

Plot Synopsis:

A group of white hunters on safari in Africa manages to insult the members of a native tribe, and the warriors respond by attacking them. After they've tortured and murdered all but one of the hunters, the natives offer this last man a slim chance for survival.
In a variation on the classic story, "The Dangerous Game", the white man is set free and given a small lead before the tribesmen set out after him. Only his wits and will-to-survive can save him, as he flees for his life through the foreign jungle terrain.

Outstanding Film! Movie Lover: from Indiana -- February, 26, 2011

I saw this film when I was only nine years old. Loved it then, and still do. The photography alone makes it worth watching this one. The performances of the entire cast are stellar, and the scene where he eats a raw snail might make you want to hurl. Check this one out, I don't think you'll be disappointed...
