When it comes to the early work of Steven Seagal, it doesn’t get much better. I have always been a fan of this movie and it is a great follow-up for Seagal after “Above the Law”. Also who doesn’t love looking at Kelly LeBrock in 1990 (and I stress 90’s, have you see her recently?). Warner has been releasing it catalog titles recently and this is the latest of the bunch. For hardcore fans of Seagal, I would definitely recommend this title.
What do you need to know about the premise? Honestly, it’s Steven Seagal and he kicks some baddie ass. He plays Detective Mason Storm, who falls into a coma after being shot during a fire-fight that killed his wife Felicia and son Sonny. When he reawakens seven to find that he son is actually alive, he heads out to get revenge with the help of his nurse and his old partner.
The Blu-ray presentation is very impressive. Warner did a rally fine job with the 1080p transfer and definitely looks sharp. The audio track is also impressive with its Dolby Digital 5.1 track, works well with the film’s action. Lastly like all the recently catalog films Warner has not included an special features. Though if you are looking for a straight forward HD release of this film and a low-cost, look no further.
