  • Lock Up [Blu-ray] [1989]Lock Up | Blu Ray | (23/08/2010) from £9.99   |  Saving you £12.00 (150.19%)   |  RRP £19.99

    The 1980s was the make-and-break decade for Sylvester Stallone's career, and Lock Up typifies the direction he took in his post-Rocky and Rambo days. It's a concept movie in the same mould as Rambo III just before it, and Tango & Cash just after. The hero (Frank Leone) is put in jeopardy (Gateway Prison), establishes a nemesis to defeat (in the shape of Donald Sutherland as Warden Drumgoole), makes a few friendships that can be sacrificed along the way (Tom Sizemore as Dallas) and does what he does in the name of love (Darlanne Flugel as Melissa). The revenge-twisted warden puts him through hell over a shared back-story. The torture ranges from being made to hold his breath in a delousing chamber to sanity-stretching periods in "The Hole". It's all about how far a man can be pushed. But being a Stallone vehicle, it's not all depressing. Composer Bill Conti reunites with the star to put the same sort of heroic fuel behind a prison-yard football game as he did for Rocky. A couple of feel-good songs pep up the love story and a montage of camaraderie in rebuilding a broken-down car. There's a healthy sense of realism achieved by having Sly doing all his own stunts and the use of a real-life prison. If the elements lead to a by-the-numbers conclusion (it's no Shawshank Redemption), remember this was some years before the actor wanted to get serious. On the DVD: A surprising amount of footage has been assembled in the two behind-the-scenes featurettes: we see Stallone directing his own fight scenes, and how use of New Jersey's Rahway Prison came with 2,500 real inmates to keep under control. Sound bite interviews reveal Stallone's worldly philosophies, then a trailer and gallery of 17 photos round out a decent overall package. --Paul Tonks

  • Out For Justice [1991]Out For Justice | DVD | (22/11/1999) from £6.73   |  Saving you £7.26 (107.88%)   |  RRP £13.99

    Steven Seagal has always been an awkward action hero. Initially, he had a certain amount of credibility thanks to his nebulous association with secret government agencies and mastery of Aikido, which helped to excuse his bad acting. But as a self-righteous action hero in the vein of Schwarzenegger and Stallone, Seagal fell into unintentional self-parody faster and more dramatically than either of his two predecessors. In Out for Justice, Seagal plays Gino Felino, a Brooklyn-born cop known and respected by everyone--both good and bad--in his neighbourhood. The worst of the baddies is Richie Madano (William Forsythe), a crack-smoking killer who murders his partner and terrorises all. Technically, Felino is a terrible cop--touching evidence at murder scenes, stealing evidence, intimidating witnesses--but only by breaking those rules can he bring in this horrible criminal. As his soon-to-be-ex-wife discovers, he does everything because he cares too much. Julianna Margulies (ER) has a small but thankless role as Richie's hooker girlfriend, and Gina Gershon (Bound, Showgirls) has an equally thankless role as his foul-mouthed, bar-owning sister. --Andy Spletzer, Amazon.com

Academy Award winner Sylvester Stallone stars as war hero John Rambo. An ex-Green Beret haunted by memories of Vietnam he was once the perfect killing machine. Now he's searching for peace but finds instead an over-zealous small-town sheriff who's spoiling for a fight.

Cliffhanger: Sarah was an inexperienced climber. She trusted Gabe to rescue her. But something went wrong high above the valley floor. Sylvester Stallone John Lithgow Michael Rooker Janine Turner and Ralph Waite star in this high-altitude avalanche of action: a non-stop adventure peaked with suspense and capped with heart-quaking terror.

Now millions of dollars and their own lives hang in the balance. Against explosive firepower bitter cold and dizzying heights Walker must outwit Qualen in a deadly game of hide-and-seek. Lock Up: In the middle of the night only six months before he is to be released Leone (Sylveter Stallone) a model prisoner is dragged from his bed in a minimum secruity prison and transferred to Gateway a maximum security hellhole run by Warden Drumgoole (Donald Sutherland).

Previously Leone had been one of Drumgoole' charges at another facility until he escaped to be at his father's death bed. Drumgoole's harshness which forced Leone to break out two weeks away from release prompted a newspaper report that accused the warden of brutality. Leone ws sentenced to addtional time while Drumgoole was publicly humiliated and transfered to Gateway the worst facility in the prison system. Now it's time for Drumgoole to get even. His plan is to physically ad psychologically intimidate Leone until he lashes out. When he does Drumgoole will extend his prison sentence in hell... or kill him.

    The ultimate revenge film, Rolling Thunder is one of the quintessential examples of action cinema from the glorious 1970s.

Tommy Lee Jones (JFK, Batman Forever) co-stars as Rane's best friend, Johnny Vohden, who unquestioningly agrees to help Rane in his mission of revenge.This little-seen gem was directed by John Flynn (Lock Up) and co-written by two top screenwriters, Heywood Gould and Paul Schrader. This was Schrader's first produced screenplay after Taxi Driver. The film’s title also was the inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's short lived video/DVD label, Rolling Thunder Pictures.

  • Best Seller [1987]Best Seller | DVD | (16/09/2002) from £9.43   |  Saving you £3.56 (27.40%)   |  RRP £12.99

    John Flynn has directed some good, tough, pacy thrillers and Best Seller, along with the 1973 The Outfit, can claim to be the best of them. It kicks off with not one but two slam-bang action sequences and then, having grabbed our attention, pitches us straight into its twisty plot premise. Brian Dennehy, reliably watchable as ever, plays an ageing cop-turned-novelist who has hit a writer's block since his wife died. James Woods at his most suavely sinister is a hitman with dirt to dish on the head of a big corporation. Woods proposes a Faustian pact. He provides Dennehy with the full crooked story on the mobster-turned-corporate boss and the cop writes it up. Dennehy gets a best seller; Woods gets his revenge and comes out looking like a hero. The dialogue, courtesy of screenwriter and horror-movie director Larry Cohen (It's Alive; Q--The Winged Serpent), is satisfyingly hard-boiled and slips in plenty of subversive sideswipes at rampant capitalism. ("It's the American Way, Dennis," says Woods, detailing how he helped his boss rise via robbery and murder. "I'm a businessman, an executive.") This certainly isn't the only movie to get mileage out of the symbiotic relationship between cop and crook (see Michael Mann's Heat), but it works several neat variations on the theme, with Dennehy and Woods both at the top of their respective forms. If the film never quite lives up to its potential--the required final confrontation between the two principals doesn't materialise and Victoria Tennant is thrown away as Dennehy's love-interest--it remains a way better than average thriller with its roots deep in the best B-movie traditions. On the DVD: Best Seller on disc has no extras apart from the theatrical trailer. The transfer is good and clean, and preserves the original's full-width framing. --Philip Kemp
