Michael is a perpetual waster. He owes money to Perrier, a local thug. When two enforcers demand payment by nightfall, Michael does a burglary with two others but won't be paid till morning. All he has to do is stay away from the thugs until he can get the money then give it to Perrier. But the lads catch Michael and start to deliver a beating, but Brenda, Michael's suicidal neighbor, shoots one. Now they must run for their lives, accompanied by Jim, Michael's estranged father who claims to be dying and has come to reconcile with his son. Will any of the trio see the sun rise? And can Michael become enlightened, become a better man?Written by
Early in the movie Michael gets into a car (possibly VW Golf mk3) which was a 1995 registration, however when we see him pull in to speak to his father the car has a 2001 reg plate. A closer shot in the same scene reveals the 95 plate again. See more »
Voice of The Reaper:
The ocean, huh? Never fails to provoke a person to musing on philosophical shit. Heavy shit, like life and death, and fate, and all that bewildering shit. The fuckin' universe. The individual's seeming insignificant in it. But are we insignificant? I mean take, for example, this individual. Wears the name of Michael McCrea. Last night he imbibed to beat the band. And today he's paying the seedy price. It's evening. He's having himself a little siesta, yeah? Little catnap. Now relax...

Such a bland crime thriller
This film is about a man who owes gangster money. He causes the death of a debt collector, therefore the gangsters issue a bounty on him.
"Perrier's Bounty" may sound like a good idea, but it is poorly executed. The characters are cardboard cut-outs that have no chemistry with each other. I frankly do not care about any of the characters at all, so watching them run around for 80 minutes is not so much fun.
The plot is plainly told in a mundane way. Imagine the dullest speaker telling a story with a hypnotic voice, that's how "Perrier's Bounty" tells a story. There are desperate attempts at humour, but they fall completely flat. The frequent use of 'man' is so unnecessary and is so irritating. The filmmakers try to make the film artistic and atmospheric. I admit the cinematography and scene composition is often good, but that does not enhance the enjoyment factor of a crime thriller. "Perrier's Bounty" is so dull and irritating, please do not watch it.
