2.0 out of 5 stars Homage to Grindhouse Exploitation Flicks Sept. 12 2012
By The Movie Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"The Victim" is a good example of what happens when one person fills three key roles: writer, director, and actor. In this case, that person is Michael Biehn ("Terminator," "Aliens").

Party girls Annie (Jennifer Blanc) and Mary (Danielle Harris) find themselves in a life and death situation. Annie's life is put in jeopardy when she witnesses the rape and murder of her closest friend at the hands of two sheriff's deputies (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood). With her pursuers closing in, she stumbles across Kyle (Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods. A rugged loner, Kyle finds the stillness of the woods comforting. He keeps civilization far away until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into turmoil.

This tawdry film attempts to emulate the grindhouse, exploitation flicks that used to flourish in pre-Disneyfied, 1970's Times Square movie houses. Rated R, it is extremely violent and tough to watch. Rape, murder, gunplay, assorted psychopaths, crooked cops, adult language, and cliches built on cliches abound. Bonus extras on the Blu-ray release include audio commentary with Michael Biehn and a making-of featurette.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun and Enjoyable Film Feb. 8 2013
By Nicholas S. Piazza - Published on Amazon.com
Anybody here complaining about pacing problems or "bad" performances should really have looked at the box a little closer before picking up this film. It's a grindhouse picture, pure and simple. It's not meant to be perfect, which is actually part of the appeal of the film. Personally, I felt the performances were quite good. Michael Biehn was great and I see more directing in his future. It's great fun to see Danielle Harris playing an adult considering she's 35 years old and still almost always gets cast as a teenager or a college student. All in all, you get what you pay for here: a sleazy good time. Previous reviewers on here are obviously not familiar with Michael Biehn or Danielle Harris' previous work if they were expecting any more than that. Not for everybody but it's worth a watch for horror fans.

2.0 out of 5 stars Michael Biehn's Debut Work as Director April 26 2013
By Tsuyoshi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It is said that "The Victim" is homage to grindhouse movies. Is that so? Despite the story that includes torture and murder, the film itself does not have enough amount of over-the-top violence or whatever makes the exploitation genre so fun. I hate to say this because I like Michael Biehn, star/writer/director of the movie, but "The Victim" is simply boring.

Michael Biehn plays Kyle Limato, a reclusive man living alone in the woods. One night a terrified woman named Annie (Jennifer Blanc) arrives, screaming for help, saying that her friend Mary (Danielle Harris) was killed, and now she, a murder witness, is being chased by the murders, two sheriff's deputies.

I'm not perfectly sure if the film's hammy acting, simple bare bone script and heavy-handed narrative including too frequent flashbacks and musings are all really intentional. I think genuine homage involves a touch of creativity, which "The Victim" doesn't seem to have. Or is this just another low-budget thriller striving for the cult status?

I don't know. All I know is that "The Victim," homage or not, is in need of something different that would distinguish itself from others of its ilk.

2.0 out of 5 stars WOW...so disappointed!!!! Feb. 9 2013
By Patty - Published on Amazon.com

I found this movie to be nothing less than predictable. It felt as though I was watching a spoof movie, with horrible acting happening on purpose. I became more and more disappointed with each line delivered by each character. I continuously inserted my own twists and turns during the movie hoping that something interesting would happen because it was just that boring. I can see a good story line here and with some major rewriting and changes in acting, it could have been a great movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Michael Biehn delivers the goods Sept. 28 2012
By Dayna Newman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Victim is a very entertaining film ,The acting was really good for a low budget film, the story was interesting, un tedious or boring.
I have been a Michael Biehn fan ever since I saw him in the early 80's slasher 'The Fan' with Lauren Bacall.He was gorgeous then and is still sexy at 54.
Danielle Harris is a joy to watch as is Jennifer Blanc although as a Horror fan I have a special place in my heart for Danielle. Even though Mary, Danielle's character is killed off in the beginning of the film we see her in flash backs as Annie "Blanc"is reflecting on their friendship and she is really sexy in her little stripper outfits,you guys should love that,seeing as Biehn and Blanc are married in real life the sex scene was pretty hot and realistic.
It wasn't a slasher or a gore fest but a physiological thriller, mystery of sorts. I liked it even without the element of no gore because the characters and story carried the film and kept me glued to the TV.I hesitated watching because I thought it would be mundane and predictable but it was neither.
Bravo to Biehn for his directing and acting..
