  • Point Break [DVD] Point Break | DVD | (12/09/2011) from £4.69  |  Saving you £8.30 (63.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    A rash of daring bank robberies erupt in which the bad guys all wear the masks of worse guys--former presidents (nice touch). Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves), an impossibly named former football star who blew out his knee and became a studly crime-busting fed instead, figures out that none of the heists occur during surfing season and all of them occur when, so to speak, surf's down. So obviously, he reasons, we're dealing with some surfer-dude bank robbers. He goes undercover with just such a group, led by a very spiritual, very guru-type guy played by Patrick Swayze, who has some muddled philosophies when it comes to materialism. If you can buy all that, this efficiently directed (by Kathryn Bigelow) action flick has some diverting moments (credit it, for example, for anticipating the extreme-sports fad). But Reeves' intelligent-sounding lines don't make him seem remotely intelligent and that plot makes him look positively brilliant. --David Kronke

    The Hurt Locker presents an intense and unflinching portrayal of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat. When a new sergeant James takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict he surprises his two subordinates Sanborn and Eldridge by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. James behaves as if he's indifferent to death. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader the city explodes into chaos and James' true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever. Winner of the BAFTA Awards for Best Film Best Director Best Original Screenplay Best Cinematography Best Editing and Best Sound. Winner of the Academy Awards for Best Picture Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow) Best Screenplay Best Editing Best Sound Mixing & Best Sound Editing. Play.com Review One of the best films of 2009 The Hurt Locker bears similarities to David Simon and Ed Burns' Generation Kill in its non-judgemental depiction of military life and the motivations of soldiers. It's a complicated and sometimes uncomfortable look into a world in which most of us will never get closer to than on our TV screens. The fact is some soldiers for one reason or another like the thrill of war. Sgt. James (charismatically played by James Renner - 28 Weeks Later) is one such soldier. Not one to do things by the book James is right at the centre of this devastating action film. Unhinged but not without his demons James regularly comes into conflict with his new teammates: the aspirational but conventional Sgt. Sanborn (Anthony Mackie - Notorious) and rabbit in the headlights Spc. Eldridge (Brian Geraghty - The Guardian). The proverbial 'hurt locker' is one they barely keep shut. There's a job to be done even if it does draw them closer to hell with each passing moment. Film buffs will be pleased to learn that The Hurt Locker features sterling cameos from Guy Pearce (The Road) David Morse (16 Blocks) and Ralph Fiennes (briefly reunited with his Strange Days director). Bigelow knows her action as Point Break K-19: The Widowmaker and Near Dark fans will testify and here she has created a battleground where even the camera is nervous - danger even when it doesn't come feels like it's everywhere. Moving through a series increasingly fraught bomb disposals the movie presents an apolitical view of soldiering that whilst not being unique to the genre (Kubrick's Paths Of Glory Coppola's Apocalypse Now and Fuller's The Big Red One) captures a chaos and intensity seldom seen elsewhere. It's refreshing to watch a war film that doesn't preach endlessly about the nature of war but shows you enough horror for you to make up your own mind. Overall we can't urge you strongly enough to open The Hurt Locker and experience this masterpiece from a master director - it's an experience you will not forget in a hurry.

  • The Hurt Locker [DVD] [2008] The Hurt Locker | DVD | (28/12/2009) from £1.95  |  Saving you £17.99 (90.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • K-19: The Widowmaker [2002] K-19: The Widowmaker | DVD | (19/05/2003) from £4.05  |  Saving you £11.80 (73.80%)  |  RRP £15.99

    An intense dramatisation of a long-suppressed Cold War anecdote, K-19: The Widowmaker is the first big Hollywood film to view the conflict through a Soviet periscope, casting Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson (with slight accents) as patriotic Russians. In 1961, as NATO deploys long-range nuclear attack submarines, the Kremlin forces the Russian Navy to follow suit, whether they're ready or not. Ford takes over from popular skipper Neeson in command of the eponymous submarine, riding the men hard through a missile test, and then coping with an escalating series of crises as a jerry-built reactor threatens to melt down (and perhaps start World War III). Though the political specifics are fresh, this has all the expected elements of a sub movie, citing everything from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Das Boot to Crimson Tide and The Caine Mutiny as sailors bristle mutinously under a marine martinet. This, along with inept engineering and ideological interference, prompts disaster. Director Kathryn Bigelow, the most undervalued talent in Hollywood, is in her element with heroic men under pressure, and a terrific central stretch has comrades trying to fix the reactor even though they've been given the wrong protective gear and start coming down with radiation sickness as they work. Less successful is a superfluous epilogue that pulls the old Spielberg present-day-reunion-of-the-aged-survivors-at-a-gravesite gambit. --Kim Newman

  • Strange Days [Blu-ray] Strange Days | Blu Ray | (25/09/2017) from £10.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    James Cameron wrote the script for this not-so-futuristic science fiction tale about a former vice cop (Ralph Fiennes) who now sells addicting, virtual reality clips that allow a user to experience the recorded sensations of others. He becomes embroiled in a murder conspiracy, tries to save a former girlfriend (Juliette Lewis), and has a romance with his chauffeur and bodyguard (Angela Bassett). Cameron's ex-wife, director Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break), brought the whole, busy, violent enterprise to the screen, and while the film's socially relevant heart is in the right place, its excesses wear one out. Some of the casting doesn't quite click either: Fiennes isn't really right for his nervous role, and Lewis is annoying (and unbelievable as the hero's much-yearned-for former squeeze). Expect some ugly if daring moments with the virtual reality stuff. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

  • Near Dark [Blu-ray] [1987] Near Dark | Blu Ray | (17/08/2009) from £6.49  |  Saving you £9.50 (59.40%)  |  RRP £15.99

  • Blue Steel Blue Steel | DVD | (24/09/2007) from £6.69  |  Saving you £9.30 (58.20%)  |  RRP £15.99

    For a rookie cop there's one thing more dangerous than uncovering a killer's fantasy. Becoming it. When a psychotic Wall Street broker witnesses rookie cop Megan Turner gunning down an armed robber in a grocery store he becomes instantly obsessed with her. In the midst of all the swift and sudden violence he manages to steal the assailant's gun; as a result the novice cop who already has more than one strike against her because she's a woman is suspended for using excessive force and killing an unarmed man. Soon thereafter the broker arranges a ""chance"" meeting with the now vulnerable policewoman and the two strike up a romance. Meanwhile he is carving her name onto bullets and using the stolen gun to go on a brutal murder spree.

  • Blue Steel [1989] Blue Steel | DVD | (18/06/2001) from £N/A  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Blue Steel contains all the familiar elements of action cinema, such as gun fetishism and the glamorisation of violence, yet tells the story from a uniquely feminine viewpoint. Directed by one of Hollywood's few female action directors, Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break, Strange Days), and starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Blue Steel is superficially an engaging action thriller about a rookie cop stalked by an obsessive killer, but Bigelow also offers an underlying message about our fascination today with gun culture and violence. The director subverts an essentially male-dominated genre with a film that displays all the requisite action credentials yet at the same time offers a portrait of how women deal with a violent world. --Abi Brennan

  • The Hurt Locker [Blu-ray] The Hurt Locker | Blu Ray | (18/01/2016) from £7.98  |  Saving you £17.01 (68.10%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Jeremy Renner portrays the leader of a bomb-defusing squad in Iraq in this fierce tale of war.

  • Near Dark [1988] Near Dark | DVD | (25/08/2003) from £9.50  |  Saving you £2.01 (8.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

    The word "vampire" is never mentioned in Near Dark, but that doesn't stop this 1987 cult favourite from being one of the best modern-era vampire films. It put then-unknown director Kathryn Bigelow on Hollywood's radar and gave choice roles to Aliens costars favoured by Bigelow's ex-husband James Cameron--Lance Henriksen is the leader of a makeshift family of renegade bloodsuckers, nocturnally seeking victims in rural Oklahoma; his immortal gal pal is Aliens and T2 alumnus Jenette Goldstein; and Bill Paxton is the group's deadliest leather-clad ass kicker. Fellow traveller Jenny Wright lures Okie farm boy Adrian Pasdar into the group with a love bite and he's soon turning toward vampirism with a combination of frightened revulsion and relentless desire. With Joshua Miller as the youngest vampire, Near Dark is Bigelow's masterpiece of low-budget ingenuity--a truck-stop thriller that begins well, gets better and better (aided by a fine Tangerine Dream score) and goes out in a blaze of glory. --Jeff Shannon
