1 Nice film, shame about the DVDJash71 | 18/03/2010 | See all Jash71's reviews (11)High Risk is one of those films that was discovered, and cherished, by the brotherhood of the early Eighties video boom. One of those insanely entertaining no-brainer cult movies that has survived the past twenty years through the medium of film buff recollection, along with the occasional television screening...until now. The wait is over, the DVD is here, and the wait wasn't worth it. What this disaster offers is a chapter-free DVD rip of a poor quality VHS tape, complete with full-on picture noise, pirate-worthy audio and a plethora of dropouts, shoddily wrapped in a case designed by an unimaginative novice with a low quality scanner! If I had purchased this from a less reputable store, I would've called the Federation Against Copyright Theft before the end of the opening title sequence, suspecting a crime of the Jack Sparrow variety. IT'S THAT BAD! Avoid this edition like the plague, and hold out for a release that does this little sparkler the justice it deserves. It might happen...someday.
