Bounty Killer is a post-apocalyptic action movie from 2013, directed by Henry Saine, based on the graphic novel "Bounty Killer: Guts and Glory" by Jason Dodson. Set in a dystopian future in the year 2042, the world has been destroyed by a series of corporate wars that have devastated the planet, leaving only a few survivors. In this world, where there is no government or law, the only way to survive is to become a bounty hunter, hunting down and killing the numerous corporate executives who are responsible for the collapse of society.

The story follows a famous bounty hunter duo, Drifter (Matthew Marsden) and Mary Death (Christian Pitre), also known as the Bounty Killers. They roam the wasteland on their motorcycles, tracking down their targets, collecting bounties, and delivering justice to the corporations, all while looking for the ultimate prize, the CEO of the largest corporation responsible for the apocalypse, The Council.

The pair is loyal and highly skilled, complementing each other in their different specialties. Drifter is a former Wall Street banker turned bounty hunter, specializing in long-range weapons, while Mary Death is a former stripper turned bounty hunter, specializing in hand-to-hand combat. Despite their differences, they work smoothly together, with witty banter and occasional tension.

However, their world is turned upside down when a bounty hunt goes wrong, revealing a conspiracy that could change the entire landscape of the corporate world. They discover that The Council plans to launch a new weapons system, which will enslave the remaining humans, forcing them to work as slaves, increasing profits, and creating a new hierarchy based on the wealthy elite. With the help of Gypsy (Kristanna Loken), a rival bounty hunter, Drifter, and Mary Death set out to stop the Council's plan, uncovering betrayals and new alliances along the way.

The film has a fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled pace, with plenty of explosions, shootouts, and fights. It's an action movie that does not take itself too seriously, with a lot of humor and satire. The characters, while somewhat stereotypical, are likable and charismatic, with a good chemistry between them. The costumes, props and set designs are impressive, creating a convincing post-apocalyptic world.

Bounty Killer features a unique visual style. The movie is shot in a graphic novel style, with vivid colors and comic-book-style animations following the action sequences. These sequences give the film an appealing comic book feel, fitting for the source material's origin. The camera work and editing are well-done, emphasizing the action, and making for a visually engaging experience.

The soundtrack and music score add to the film's atmosphere. The vintage rock and punk songs are a perfect match for the apocalyptic world, with an energy that fits the action scenes. The music score, by Greg Edmonson, complements the visuals and adds to the sense of danger and urgency.

In conclusion, Bounty Killer is an entertaining action film, with a unique visual style and a good sense of humor. While it may not be entirely original in its premise, it has enough charm and creativity to stand out from the rest. The film is a fun ride, with plenty of action and adventure, making it an easy recommendation for fans of the genre.

Bounty Killer is a 2013 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 32 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5 and a MetaScore of 48.
