On the plus side, the film looks good, moves along at a decent pace and has the required amount of gunfire and explosions to satisfy fans of the genre. In terms of the lead actor, Dolph is quite a fearsome, athletic looking specimen who looks terrific in the action sequences. He doesn't have a great deal of dialogue to get through, which suits the robotic, monosyllabic nature of the assassin he's playing.
On the downside, the plot of 'Red Scorpion' amounts to nothing more than the sort of myth-laden Soviet-bashing that was so commonplace in US movies at the time. The attitude was always America = good and USSR = bad. It was a bit laughable back then and it's downright embarrassing now. Here we have a muddled mess of a story, involving persecuted African villagers, sneering Soviet and Cuban villains and a disillusioned, double-crossed Dolph finding the road to redemption via a giggling bushman. Classic 80s B-movie villain Brion James pops up with a dreadful Russian accent and M. Emmett Wash gets to swear a lot.
As a brainless, retro action romp, and showcase of Dolph's action hero credentials, 'Red Scorpion' does a decent job and is pretty typical of the kind of movies served up at the time. It's ok as a bit of late night movie nostalgia, but time hasn't been kind to it I'm afraid.

As with all their delux Blu-Ray presentations, it is attractively packaged, and comes with a nice quality double sided poster, and 4 regional variant options of sleeve design.
The small booklet is informative, though maybe padded out with information about the director's previous work, as opposed to a lot of info specific to the production of the film itself.
The print of the film is OK, but not great - there are still some places in which the quality becomes grainy, particularly in night scenes where the imperfections stand out against the darkness.
This is the complete and uncut version of the movie.
Extra's include a standard director's commentary, a somewhat pointless intro from Dolph, a brief interview with him, and a feature on the film score.
Unfortunately, as attractive as all this is to fans of the film, it is Arrows bad luck, that very shortly, Synapse Films will be releasing their own collectors blu-ray of this film, that will have a digitally remastered and restored print, a 5:1 DTS audio option, along with a far more impressive collection of extras, including more comprehensive interviews, and unseen footage from behind the scenes, shot by FX maestro Tom Savini himself. It will also be a Region free release.
So its not that this version is 'bad', its just that a better edition is on the horizon.
