******This review is for the Scream Factory Blu-ray*******
Dolph Lundgren plays a tough streetwise cop who refuses to play by the rules. He's after a gang of yuppies turned drug deals run by the evil Victor Maitland. Unfortunately there is a new player in town. An 8ft tall white-eyed alien drug dealer harvesting adrenaline from human brains. Turns out its the galaxy's number one high of choice! Partnering up with a federal agent the duo begin hunting the alien menace.
Dark Angel (aka I come in peace, though that's a much lamer title)was made at the tail end of the eighties and actually got released 1990. It's a fun, well directed action romp that was a popular rental for me back in my school days. When MGM stuck out that cheap and cheerful DVD release a few years back I rushed out to pick it up and now i've done the same for this Scream Factory edition. The film has always been one of Dolph's best pictures for me. While being low budget it easily holds a candle up to films like Red Scorpion and Universal Soldier.
The disc is almost bare bones features wise. It has a short retrospective featurette that's an interesting watch but that is it really. The main reason to pick it up is it's definitely the best presentation of the film to date. Scream Factory's done a great job with the transfer and I've never seen or heard this film so good in any previous release.
As per usual with Scream Factory releases make sure you can play region locked discs. If you can and you fancy some no-nonsense sci-fi action then I highly recommend picking this up!
