    I just have to compliment Warner Brothers on a reference quality dvd. I watched it again last night for the 3rd time and all I can say is wow! The picture is beautiful. And the sound is great. Very good use of all 5.1 speakers. I also want to comment on the movie itself. Great action flick. I thought it had a good mix of everything. Action, humor, drama. It also had some pretty cool cars and guns in it. The Lamborghini was soooo sweet. This is what I remember action flicks being like. Hopefully they make more flicks like this in the future. Maybe it's a Steven Segal comeback??

    I for one sure hope that it isn't a Steven Segal comeback. It may be a great movie, but I choose not to see it because of him. IMO I think he is a scumbag and poor actor. Remember IMO.

    I completely agree that this is another beauty of a transfer from Warner!
    The movie itself is another issue! Actually, I found it somewhat entertaining, although predictable and mindless! [​IMG]

    Yeah, it's one of those turn your brain off totally cliche mindless action flicks but still very enjoyable. I thought Tom Arnold was pretty funny. The small part he was in it. And Kendal, those are some rough comments. Scumbag? Why is he a scumbag? I admit, his acting is not the best, but I like the way he kicks ass!

    I have to rent this movie soon. I've read all the HTF reviews about the audio/video quality of the movie, and one side of me says to buy it to see how great the transfer is. But, if I don't like the movie...maybe I'll rent this one this weekend!

    Gotta love the beginning when Segal is spraying bullets with a hand gun! [​IMG]

    I understand this is a "mindless action film" but no matter
    how hard I tried ( and I really tried, checking brain at
    the door, hitting switch on back of neck that said off, trying to imagine that Seagal was Deniro) to get into this
    flick, I couldn't! The thing that really cracks me up
    about Seagal is that he thinks he is making an important film!! Please, NO Steven Seagal comeback....PLEASE???
    BTW- I have to admit I did like one Seagal flick, Above
    the Law. For what it was, it was pretty good. I think his
    acting actually got worse over time. I do have an AWESOME
    idea for a new Seagal film though. It would be a Three
    Stooges remake starring Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris
    and Steven Seagal!! I would love to see that movie!!!

    That is just it, he kicks ass, namely his wives!!! He has beat two of his ex-wives, or was that a mistress and his ex-wife? Regardless, he doesn't rate very high in my book.

    Actually if you just take the film with Anthony Anderson and Tom Arnold, the film is pretty entertaining.
    I bought it! It's good fun!
    And I'm NOT a Steven fan, except for Under Seige-GREAT MOVIE!

    There's no shortage of Segal non-fans around. [​IMG]
    He's notorious for being inexplicably rough with his stuntmen. I know of one gentleman in particular who takes no crap himself and humbled Segal on a film set a number of years ago.
    I'm not a fan based on that information alone: something about movie actors believing they can actually tussle is pretty obnoxious.

    I like a good action film, and SS has made a few ("Above the Law", "Under Siege" and "Under Siege II") but most of his stuff reeks. Why? Look no further than the above mentioned films. They all had a semblance of a plot.

    I saw it at the movies and loved it!
    He can be good when he is surrounded by decent actors like in Under Seige.

    JakeR,
    Two things;
    1. If the story is true, you've have got to spill the beans on
