At last, this classic film gets the release it deserves: full length, uncut and hi-def! And the good news is, I can confirm this US import is a region free Bluray!!!
If you're reading this, chances are you've already seen Marked For Death about a hundred times and know it's not only Segal's finest film, but just a great action flick in its own right. If you haven't seen it - watch it!
All the usual Steve Segal Akido and undercover badass is here - but mixed in with it is a theme of voodoo, black magic and Jamaican Yardies, which makes the film immensely enjoyable to watch.
This film spawned some of the greatest lines ever committed to film and one of cinema's most terrifying villains in the shape of Screw Face, played brilliantly by one Basil Wallace.
Scene after scene is totally incredible, whether its a fight scene with Segal or Basil delivering a captivating, spooky and terrifying performance. And there are so many brilliant monologues and one liners that vocal samples taken from this film virtually kept the Drum and Bass and Jungle scenes alive in the 90s.
Great fun, brilliant acting, incredible fight scenes, a non nonsense story, a great twist and non-stop action - what more do you want? Screw Face is mesmerising to watch and even More so in HD, so if you're a fan of the film buy this region free Bluray now. It's an absolute classic!!!
Until your copy arrives in the post here's a few of the best lines to refresh your memory and keep you going:
"E'ry body wan' go heaven... nu'body wan' dead!"
"Who kill 'im, de white boy Hatcha?"
"If a man commit a crime against you - he must be paid back, a t'ousand times!"
"Screw Face give me a t'ousand deaths worse that you..."
"You a do tha selling... you a' be tha mule."
"Don' worry... i's not ya body we wan'... it's your spirit."
"Let no man stray from the pat' dat I 'ave prepared!"
"Me a'carve yer now bwoy, me a carve yer... I got you where I want you now, you like a dog without teeth!"
"I wan' Hatcha dead! I wan' him family DEAD!!!!... an' if you can' kill him, I gon' kill him...... an' then I go kill you."
