review by
Mike Haberfelner

Jessica's (Cassandra Delaney) position in her community hasn't been the easiest to begin with, running an animal sanctuary in, of all places, the very macho dominated Australian Outback, so should occasionally one of her animals - on her property, mind you - disappear or show up shot to death, the local sheriff (Don Barker) usually turns a blind eye, figuring it wouldn't even be worth the paperwork. But then game hunter Sunny (Peter Ford) and his goons Ringo (David Sandford) and Sparks (Garry Who) show up, and they're more than a little interested in the kangaroos on her land, and when she puts up some soft opposition, they intimidate her a tiny bit, which includes driving her off the road - only, she's a woman of ideals and a little intimidation doesn't work for her. So Sunny and company try harder and harder, which includes cutting her off civilisation (it's the outback, so everything's miles apart), killing her animals, humiliating her and only just stopping short of a rape, and thrashing her whole farm - but however spent she might be she never wavers, which of course can only lead to one thing, a literal life-and-death stand-off where Jessica's grossly outnumbered ...


Now in the era Fair Game was made, revenge movies spanned many genres, be it action (First Blood), sexploitation (I Spit on Your Grave) or even science fiction (Mad Max) - and while granted, the term "era" is used rather generously here, Fair Game has certainly been influenced by all of the above movies in one way or another. And yet, upon watching the whole thing just feels damn original, for once because it doesn't follow the same macho patterns action movies of its ilk followed in the mid-1980s, but also because it has its heart in the right place, but without bragging about it, and it successfully combines suspense with all-out action, something not many movies have mastered to this day. And when it comes to action, the film really chooses action filmmaking over blunt violence, which might also explain its low bodycount. But what above everything else makes this movie is its many rather brilliantly executed stunt sequences which really combine inventiveness with pure craftmanship. So it's really an adrenaline-pumping experience throughout, and while yes, there's never any doubt how this movie will end, the road to there is well worth the journey - and a film that deserves a lot more attention than it's getting presently.
