Can anybody tell me the name of a movie I saw on TV when I was a kid maybe 20 years ago. My memory of it is a bit hazy but the opening sequence involves a man being hunted by these sadistic assassins through a forest maybe in Alaska or somewhere? The assassins are wearing masks (I think) and one of them uses a bow/crossbow. Anyway, the man is killed. The film seems to be based around a secret military training compound of some sort. A second man, the movie's main character, ends up in this compound where he must test his combat skills against the assassins. He fights and kills them all one by one and in the end it turns out he was being set up by the Military group that sent him in there.

Some of the above details maybe be slightly inaccurate as my memory of it is quite faded now.

It's not Deadly Prey or Surviving the Game.

A couple of movies that come to mind are "Gymkata" or "The Octagon". But with so many movies having the elements you've mentioned, I'd just be guessing at this point. –  Xavier Casto Aug 14 '13 at 19:59
Thanks so much for your response but it's neither of those films. There's a chance it might from the 1970s or 1980s as i saw it on TV. It was more of a horror film than a quintessential action/martial arts movie. I'm nearly sure it takes place almost entirely in a forest and there are only a handful of assassins with whom he takes on one by one to fight to the death! I'd love to know what it is! –  Fargo Aug 14 '13 at 22:51
It almost sounds like a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie I remember from my younger days, but many of the details don't fit. –  Adam V Aug 16 '13 at 18:11
