A cocky businessman (Douglas) spends his spare time big-game hunting. But when he hires an earnest young guide (Jeremy Irvine, War Horse) to take him deep into the Mojave Desert in search of prey, things quickly go awry when he shoots and kills an innocent man by mistake. When the guide refuses to be drawn into the dishonest cover-up, a deadly game of cat-and-mouse ensues across a barren and brutal desert pitting hunter against prey.

Director Jean-Baptiste Leonetti (Carré Blanc) and also starring Ronny Cox (Beverly Hills Cop), Beyond the Reach popped into a few theaters for a week or so to lousy numbers. The critics didn’t dig it either and it garnered an equally lousy 44% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.

Regardless, it sounds like a Most Dangerous Game type of flick and we’re a little curious.

The Blu-ray and DVD contain the following features:

  • Audio Commentary with actor/producer Michael Douglas, producer Robert Mitas and director Jean-Baptiste Leonetti (For Digital HD – iTunes Only)
    §“The Making of Beyond the Reach” featurette
    §  “Six Wheeling: Inside and Outside the Ultimate Ride” featurette
