| Typical Hauser treading African ground on the sick path
This is an ugly and unpleasant film. You do feel this at times, one example where the blood flows freely over the opening credits, thanks to our women hating psycho with a switchblade. Again Hauser, with his mysterious and little known past plays a bounty hunter, chasing down the guy in South Africa. A sexy, if brazen reporter, (Kriel) like in the wake of a murder attempt, teams up with Hauser, where a relationship forms, and there is some sex. The psycho's reason here, was that he blames prostitutes for his sister's death. She was also a prostitute. Hauser does get a little bloody on his investigation, when chasing down a few scumbags, associates of our psycho. The son of Hauser's best friend, who acts as a tour guide, a eager assistant, does strongly disapprove of his hardened methods, Wings actually cuts him loose of from helping him in further investigations. And again too, Hauser clashes with African authorities, adding some humor to the situation, one of the African cops stating "You have the right to shut the f... up?" The film becomes personal, when our psycho, Wilson, kills Hauser's mate's son. Here was one truly dramatic acting moment from Wings. The film title has a double meaning too, I love. This is one of Hauser's sicker films that joins "The Art Of Dying". I do admit, I've seen this movie a couple of times, and it was one I quite liked. I haven't seen it for years, where I have to make another viewing time soon. Yes Reason To Die, is an overly sick violent, action psycho thriller that Hauser fans should add to their must watch list, though not doubt, some viewers will see this movie as "a reason to kill".
