  1.  Overated 70s Thriller??

    Posted: 

    This film is a 70s revenge thriller that has acquired a cult status possibly due to its long unavailbility on the home market. It has some pretentions towards the style of Sam Peckinpah, notably The Getaway. But it comes across as v dated despite interesting early performance from Tommy Lee Jones & William Devane in the main lead.
    In short, its the tale of an Air Force officer returning to his texas town after 9 yrs as a vietnamese POW . Some local rednecks rob him and kill his son, and he hunts them down & takes his revenge.
    The picture transfer for this bluray is fine, the sound is only mono albeit quite good.
    It's the narrative that is weak, with the story going into several directions in an attempt to fill out the feature time. It's OK but don't expect to much.

  2.  Top Notch

    Here is a crime drama/thriller to rival Michael Mann's Heat. A brilliant cast, asnd superbly directed by Ben Affleck.
    An adult film with plenty for everyone. Highly Recommended.

  3.  Undervalued Cop Film

    Posted: 

    This has had many critics and comparisons with the original tv series were a mistake. This is a clever and intricate movie, and michael mann has provided a movie that if watched with an open mind can be seen for the excellent piece of work it is. Colin farrell has not been as good since 'tigerland'. But.. If this blu-ray version is the same one as the region 2 dvd then leave it for now. The director's cut, up to now only available in region 1, is a clearer narrative and far better.
