Scott`s (Chuck Norris) life is plagued by memories of his accidentally injuring a friend during the rigorous training he endured under a master arts master. A wealthy heiress, who seeks revenge against an international terrorist camp known as The Octagon, enlists his help through suspense and intrigue, because he is the only one who can defeat his adopted brother running the operation.
If you like Chuck Norris this Blu-Ray is essential also starring is the beautiful Karen Carlson who`s not afraid to get her hands dirty and fire a few rounds and Richard Norton has a funny one on one with Chuck Norris and is part of the Chuck Norris stunt team for this movie and makes an impression for his debut, the picture is very clear a few spots of grain but hardly noticeable.
The audio comes with 2.0 Stereo and a very impressive 5.1 DTS which makes good use of the gunfire and explosions.
Aspect Ratio for this movie is a nice 1.78:1 Anamorphic (16:9)
The special features are the same as the region 1 dvd but a first for UK buyers:-
Making of The Octagon (39 m 27s)
Trailer - Tv spot
Directors commentary (Alan Belkin)
How America Changed Hollywood Forever.(28m 58s)Also on "A Force Of One"
Anchor Bay have out done themselves with this release and "A Force Of One" also on Blu-Ray and hope thay can release "Good Guys Wear Black" which was also made by AMERICA CINEMA CORP, INC. 10 OUT OF 10.
The kind of action film that nobody goes to see on the big screen anymore, the plot makes very little sense unless you’re very, very drunk and even then you might find yourself asking just why all the terrorist recruits turn on their nin-ja tutors at the end (answer: to up the body count). Being an exploitation film, there’s a lot of shorthand at work: Ernie Hudson turns up in one scene just to give us some back story on why Chuck doesn’t want to fight anymore, Chuck’s brother became evil because he lost a obstacle course race as a kid while we know one of the recruits is an IRA terrorist because he has red hair and another is PLO because he wears a tea towel on his head (wrong pattern, but who’ll notice?). But it does end up with Chuck Norris taking on an army of nin-jas, and that’s all its target audience could ask for.
The Blu-ray offers a respectable widescreen transfer with making of documentary, audio commentary by director Eric Karson, trailer and TV spot and the same documentary about the rise and fall of exploitation outfit American Cinema Productions that's included on the A Force of one Bluray and DVD..
