Lets be honest, this wasn't one of Arnie's best movies, it was a sort of stop gap for him, but one that really didn't really cut it for me. Yes, this is fun, watching Arnie trying to be the tough guy and a lover at the same time amused me, and there are some memorable moments, especially when he tells his wife to not drink and bake - but the moment when he's in the gravel pit listening to The Rolling Stones' (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
while killing the bad guys was probably its pinnacle, but really this is a typical gangster movie, and Arnie does OK, but doesn't blow us away.
He's a sheriff trying to get back into the Bureau, and his job is to infiltrate a Chicago Mafia family - by any means - but he has to stay under the radar to make this work.
This blu is pretty fine, with a 5.1 Master Audio track which pumps at 2 megabits a second - the quality is much better than the 2.0 mix I had before. The video is AVC and is around 30Mbit/sec - and the quality of the picture just shows you what artists Studio Canal are, and this shines really nicely. The extras are poor, the only highlight is Dave Saunders talking about the movie, though a big Arnie fan, he wasn't impressed with this one. Sadly there are no subtitles or other languages, it's rather bare, but for what it does it does it well.
This isn't a bad disk, but the fact it's bare doesn't do the fans justice, I know this film is a bit niche and has a following - but really it could have done with being feature packed, or at least a couple of languages and subtitles. This is really aimed at megafans of the movie, and fails as they already have this on DVD. The only redeeming feature is the fact it is in HD and is stunning.
