In "Kill Shot," during a hunting trip to Montana, a wilderness guide and former Navy SEAL (Rib Hills) and his client (Rachel Cook) stumble upon a cache of heist money, unwittingly making themselves the one obstacle standing between a dangerous terroist group and its lost fortune. Eager to take some of the cash for themselves, the pair learns far too late how easy it can be to make someone disappear in the vastness of Big Sky country. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the trailer and upfront previews.

The 2.39:1 1080p picture, reviewed on a VIZIO Quantum X P85QX-JI UHD/HDR display, was photographed digitally using Arri Alexa cameras and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture shifts between flashbacks of the former Navy SEAL and the death of his daughter and resulting sorow, a bar scene, and for the most part the Montana wilderness. Images appear natural, particularly the wilderness imagery. Earth tones predominate with brownish ground cover and green trees. Military-style uniforms and hunting attire appear natural. Flesh tones maintain naturalness throughout. Contrast is generally good with mostly mid tones and nighttime shadows. Resolution is good to excellent, though at times a bit soft. Overall, this is a pleasing picture. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack engages ADR-produced dialogue that is wanting in spatial integration, particularly within the wilderness setting. Atmospherics are prominent with sporadic sound effects such a rife and pistol effects. The music score sounds synthesizer derived and often rhythmic. Bass extension is supported for some sound effects and the music. Surround envelopment is fairly aggressive and includes the music and atmospherics. This is a holosonic® soundtrack without the dynamics associated with the genre. (Gary Reber)
