One of my buddies Matt has a tradition of buying me a random movie with wrestlers in it I have never heard of, and usually is among the direct to video fare. That is exactly what we watched for my pick, which ironically also happens to be a Canadian action flick too. I am talking about the 2011 straight to video thriller that is Bounty Hunters (trailer), or as it is known in Canada as Bail Enforcers, which I am guessing that title has more pizzazz then Bounty Hunters up there.
Trish is from and currently resides in Toronto, and I have a sneaking suspicion that this is where it is shot because a majority of the actors here have heavy Canadian accents. They even wrestle a little bit of it back into Trish who use to mask it for years in her WWE days. To give the filmmakers the benefit of the doubt, they never outright say where this film takes place, so it could be taking place anywhere with a city that has a surprisingly strong Canadian sector. I do not mean to poke fun at the accents so bad, but Matt was obsessed at pointing this out throughout the film so I feel obligated to dedicate a paragraph to this here.
There are a couple of brief extra features on the DVD release. There is a brief three minute behind the scenes clip of Trish and an adversary rehearsing a fight scene, and about another ten minute interview with Trish who spends the bulk of the time talking about how much fun she had doing the fight scenes. Neither of these are particularly insightful, and are not must see by any means. The same can be said for Bounty Hunters in general, where unless you want to make somewhat of a unique night of it as part of a bad movie night like I did, you should absolutely avoid at all costs.
