Now, being as it's Mill Creek, don't expect a gorgeous transfer. It's good, and an improvement over the VHS tape, but it won't blow you away either. And sadly, there are zero special features included. It's literally just the film and that's it. BUT, and here's the best part, it's INSANELY cheap. I'm talking that even when you combine shipping, you'll "still" pay less than $10 for this bad boy. I got mine on eBay for $7.88, and that's with shipping included.
So I literally only saw this film for the very first time a few months ago after randomly coming across the VHS at my local thrift shop. It blew my mind. It's an insane ride of pure 80's cheesey goodness and I'm shocked that it doesn't have a much bigger following. It constantly shifted genre's, themes and story's so often that I don't even know how to begin to describe it, other than it's just fucking awesome. It's an action film, a survivalist film, a drama, a thriller, a revenge film, a cops and robbers film and an 80's neon colored tour de force of style. Produced by Michael Mann (Miami Vice, Manhunter, Thief, Heat), Directed by Paul Michael Glaser (The Running Man), and starring a slew of recognizable faces, who were barely up and coming at the time, this is a MUST OWN for your Blu Ray collection, if nothing else, then to be blown away by nostalgia.
