A bland and often lackluster action thriller with Rutger Hauer failing to hold a candle to McQueen...

As he did in Runaway, rock-star Gene Simmons makes a truly despicable villain. How the terrorist character he plays here gets his just desserts makes for a truly fantastic finish.

While it's great to see Rutger Hauer in an action lead, the movie's just not all that good. At all.

One of the coolest, most in-your-face thrillers of the 80's

Audience Reviews for Wanted Dead or Alive

Rutger Hauer as a bounty hunter, pitted against a terrorist played by Gene Simmons. It doesn't get any cooler than that. This is low budget 80s action at its best, it utilizes what it has and doesn't come off as cheesy or dumb. The plot works, but it's the little things that make it great. The fact that Rutger Hauer has a command center that rivals the batcave is my favorite aspect. Just total fun.

Rutger Hauer does some pretty good action sequences in his bounty hunter business.
