A busty woman and two guys are working for the BEA, the Bail Enforcement Agency, as bounty hunters. They're about to do two jobs in one night, but it appears that the second job is a lot harder than they originally expected. What first seems like capturing a small time crook with a BB gun, quickly turns into a battle with the most wanted criminal in the area.
Sorry if I spoil this a bit, but I'm sure you don't mind?
Essentially "Bounty Hunters" is a 90's Pamela Anderson flick, but without Pamela and in 2010's. That alone should tell you what this is, since I'm pretty sure Pamela Anderson is the only one who is allowed to be a stupid, slutty, large-breasted, cheeseball crime fighter. Because it's Pamela Anderson, who cares? "Barb Wire" was my personal crap of choice as a youngling. Now, to make a movie like "Bounty Hunters" is just silly. It's just not working in the 2010's. The charm is gone.
"Bounty Hunters", or "Bail Enforcers", is about three bounty hunters (or "bail enforcers"). I'm not sure if they work for a company called BEA (Bail Enforcement Agency), of if that's just what they call themselves. Jules, played by wrestler Trish Stratus, is the only reason you watch the movie, yet she seems to be less important than the other two a lot of the time. These bounty hunters are to capture a criminal and bring him to jail, but when they pick him up he offers them a large sum of money for doing something they're not entirely sure they should do. And that kicks everything in motion - soon they're not just out picking up small time crooks, but are being chased by the most dangerous person around.
There you go. Not the greatest story, but it'll do. A little warning, this is the paragraph that'll be spoiling a bit. Okay.. The story. When you reach the end you realize it was all pointless. During most of the movie they didn't want to hand over a crook to another crook because they would kill the first crook, and the BEA's can't have that on their conscience. Even though they get a lot of money from it. But in the ending they do almost exactly that, so why couldn't they have done it from the beginning!? Oh, because the smug lead characters don't understand they did it, do they? No, because they thought arming the crook with blanks instead of real guns, to help him survive the bigger crooks, was a good idea. Fucking assholes, you should just have handed him over to begin with and no trouble would've occured! They happily walk away with the money in the end.
Other than the flaws in the plot, you have some mediocre fighting scenes, fairly bland acting, poor jokes, stupid characters. Basically everything you expect an action movie like this to succeed with! But you know what? You get what you pay for. You know exactly what this is gonna be when you put it on. It's hard to hate the movie since you expect it to be pretty bad. I can't say I had a great time with it, but I'm sure there will be some less picky people around who can enjoy a bad actioner for what it is: a stupid action movie with a large-breasted lead actress. I can't be bothered to feel anger towards it.
