Adam Cook’s review:
Over the top action, dubious special effects, patchy acting and a ludicrous story built on cheap coincidences. Frankly this description could be used to describe a whole host of action-thrillers from Hong Kong so The Beast Stalker is in good company. However, despite its obvious flaws the film is still rather entertaining thanks to solid lead performances and tight direction.
The action is exciting and well choreographed whilst helping get the film through some of its shakier moments. Those shaky moments predominantly come from the neat way all these character tie together. Lazy coincidences are a pet hate of mine and The Beast Stalker has its fair share, particularly in the clumsy conclusion. Still, it is an entertaining ride for the most part.
