Excerpt: That pretty much sums upthe PQ on this release. The audio is screaming for restoration and suffers from an extreme amount of damage which could be removed if just a *little* effort had been put into cleaning it up. As for the film, it's a great noir and you can't go wrong with Orson Welles. My advice: buy the MGM Film Noir series DVD.
Conclusion: dont get me wrong its a gd film and austins actting is gd to as well as the other peoples actting to. the camera work is poor as it moves way to much and does the same when the action starts to this is due to it being a low budget film and i think sum people will say this film is bad cos of it. well if u can ignore the poor camera work then u will enjoy the film. not to spoile it but not sure if the film will continue as it seems as tho its left open at the end.

Conclusion: IT's not often that you get to praise a crossover star for his acting chops. The world of DTV Low-budget action is awash with ex-sportsmen, wrestlers and other muscled chancers, all trying to grab a slice of the post-pub home video pie but Steve Austin (The Expendables) bests most of them with a performance that, taken in context, stands head and shoulders above most of the wooden performances that passes for acting in these kind of flicks.
