Region 1 (US Import) STERLING DVD
United States Air Force Major Frank Cross ( Dolph Lundgren) is on thin ice with the government. Following yet another unauthorized, but noble mission, Cross is facing dismissal. His only saving grace is that the President ( Roy Scheider) wants the public hero by his side to win the next election. However Cross` new job of gaurding nuclear launch codes does not go as smoothly as he hoped. Unlike the awful UK dvd this US Region 1 dvd has a decent picture transfer, scene selection "The Peacekeeper" trailer and actor biography/selective filmography for Dolph and Roy. If you like Dolph or action movies in general it`s worth a look just switch off and enjoy the car chase has to be seen to be believed.
Running Time: 99 Mins
Audio: Dolby Digital Stereo (English Only)
Extras: Dolph Lundgren and Roy Schieder Biography/Selective filmography Picture Gallery Trailer
Aspect Ratio: Presented in 1.33:1 (4:3) format
In the film big Dolph plays Major Frank Cross of the US Air Force, he is responsible for carrying and protecting the President's personal communications computer (basically this is a briefcase that has the capability of launching the US arsenal).
The main premise is that a terrorist group have attacked Major Frank Cross and stolen the all important briefcase, they take control of a missile silo and then basically hold the president to ransom, Dolph has to then save the day, along with the help of Montel Williams (yes, THAT Montell Williams!).
The film co-stars Michael Sarrazin, the aforementioned Montel Williams, Roy Scheider and Christopher Heyerdahl, and was shot on location in Montreal.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it really took me back to all those great 80's action flicks.
The action is really good, particularly the sequence at the start of the film where the case is stolen, there is a car chase across rooftops (yes, rooftops!); and there are very few periods when the film slows down.
The performances are all good, Dolph in particular is surprisingly good giving a very relaxed and natural display, and its always good to see Roy Scheider, he plays a pretty tough US President here.
The film itself has a running time of 90 minutes, the picture and sound quality are not as good as I'd like, the image at times is quite soft, but this didn't actually detract from my enjoyment.
This disc is Region Free.
Overall a surprisingly a good film, more enjoyable than many action films released nowadays, and one of the better films in Dolph's career in my opinion.
Region 2 Pal DVD, 1hr 34mins approx., 1997, No features.
