"The new version of the DVD is a ton better then the horrid Goodtimes release. The disc is in Anamorphic Widescreen and the sound quality is really decent. No real extras except a trailer. Not a Blockbuster film but still decent. Hope this helps."

"I had hopes for this one. I thought it would be a surprisingly good movie like Road House. At the scene that takes place at the New Amsterdam Theater, this thing goes way wrong and way hokey. It's a waste of Sam Elliot. You think it's going to be a crusader guy movie but it turns into a preposterous shoot'em up with Sam Elliot swinging from a lamp post shooting with a Glock in one hand. It would have been OK that all of the characters are weak stereotypes, but the stupid gun fights and unbelievable car chases ruin this movie. Lazy writers are the downfall of many movies. It's so bad that it's NOT good. I've heard better dialogue between two teen aged girls on their cell phones. I couldn't make it to the end of this worthless, dumbed-down piece of idiocy."
