‘Bonnie and Clyde’ are reinvented in SCAVENGER KILLERS, where a charming judge and a hot criminal defense attorney go on a maniacal, random killing rampage. With bizarre, yet somehow believable, FBI agents on the hunt, the deranged duo amp up their rampage, never murdering with the same method but always with same untamed ferocity.
Scavenger Killers isn’t the type of movie that will be for everyone, but if you are looking for something just wild and wacky, topped off with a lot of blood (both CGI and practical), then you might just want to take a look at it. Here, you will see a lot of folks you’ve seen before, like Eric Roberts, Dustin Diamond, and more. You just might not have ever seen them before like you will be seeing them here. There is some very gimmicky characters, some work and some don’t, but the stars of the film are clearly the characters being played by Robert Bogue and Rachael Robbins. I’d seen Bogue on a soap back in the day called Guiding Light, where he played a very likeable and nice character. This was something that blown me away here to see him play the type of character he is playing. It just shows the range the man has and his performance, if nothing else, is worth seeing.
My main issue with the movie that I feel some stuff they tried just didn’t work as good as they might have wanted it to. There is a whole lot of sexual stuff going on and sometimes that even feels a little awkward. The director seemed to just want to toss everything out there and see what sticks, and while some stuff did stick, others didn’t do as well as I’m sure they had hoped it would. I also think the movie runs a little long in the tooth by the time it reaches the ending. Still, I didn’t hate it and I liked most of the creative stuff it did offer up. I also enjoyed the gore. It is just as violent as it is sexual and that might be the thing most people can take comfort in while watching.
