A valiant attempt I suppose, but not on BD

"Admittedly, I ordered this for the store for two reasons, a low priced BD and Alison Eastwood. Neither proved to be what I had hoped in value. Alison's role was smaller, and the BD quality was one of the worst transfers I have seen.
The story is reminiscent of a low grade B movie involving a man trying to save himself while traveling to our southern neighbor. The whole "during Pete Wilson's regime" plot feels misplaced for what the story is about, but in the end it apparently gains some relevance. That aside, the acting is below average and not enjoyable.
The quality of the BD is horrendous, including volumes of grain and foreign artifact throughout. I played it in the store for a brief spell (on the BD display) but customers thought I had damaged the display or was showing lowdef broadcast, so it was removed in short order. The sound was mixed to 2.0 quality, and was muddled at best.
No special features to list, so overall not a BD recommendation, and a weak B movie reference at that."

After witnessing a murder, he has to cross-dress to stay concealed from a gang that's trying to hunt him down. This movie takes its viewers on a wild ride![...]"
