Bounty Hunters movie scene

Trish Stratus puts her trademark moves on justice-fleeing fugitives in Bounty Hunters.

Let me start by saying that if I had to be tracked down and nabbed by some fortune-seeking mercenary, I wouldn’t mind if my pursuer was seven-time WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus as seen in her action movie debut Bounty Hunters.

Originally entitled Bail Enforcers, the 2011 film finds a group of down-on-their-luck bounty hunters, led by Jules Taylor (Stratus), hitting the jackpot one night when they pick up an informant with $100,000 on his head. But their world is quickly turned upside down when a gangland boss (Joe Rafla) offers them a million dollars in exchange for their bounty. When Jules and her partners refuse, the mob unleashes a trio of assassins to bring the bounty hunters down, and to get their man – dead or alive.

Needless to say, leading lady Trish sends the baddies into the “Stratusphere” with a collection of awesome wrestling moves and one inspired skirmish that finds her getting into a seriously sexy catfight with co-star Andrea James Lui.

I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that Ms. Stratus offers a substantially more sizzling variation on her bounty hunting profession than Katherine Heigl does with the same occupation in One for the Money, which opened theatrically on Jan. 20, 2012 to some of the worst reviews that Heigl has ever received!

Directed by Patrick McBrearty (Psycho Ward), the unrated Bounty Hunters, which premieres in the U.S. on DVD, also stars Boomer Phillips (TV’s The Adrenaline Project) and Frank J. Zupancic (Sweet Karma).
