Decent update of The Most Dangerous Game


This film appears to be an update of Richard Connell's famed (and repeatedly filmed) The Most Dangerous Game. It is pretty good for a made for TV movie. The time period has been switched from the early 1920s to the early 1990s and the "big game" hunter has gone from a White Russian nobleman and army officer to an American self made billionaire and gangster extraordinaire.
It builds on the original concept with a story of revenge and slights being repaid. It seemed to me a rather enjoyable way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.

I watched it any years ago on tv. Too bad that is unavailable on DVD!
