Triggermen DVD Review
SRP: £12.99

Picture

Image-wise there's very little to comment on. The picture is quite soft with a degree of video noise present - bland is a word that springs to mind. It's also a little on the dark side, but colours are reasonably well rendered. Having said that, I did notice that skin tones seem a little variable throughout and towards the end of the movie I noticed a small amount of minor print defects. An average movie gets a less than average DVD image - at least it's been anamorphically enhanced.

Sound

And things continue in the same mould, audio-wise with not a dts or Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack in sight... or should that be - earshot? Which leaves a rather unsatisfactory Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track - at least Dolby Pro Logic IIx equipped home cinema amps can be put to the test. Sadly, I have yet to upgrade to Dolby's latest offering, so my comments here refer to straightforward Dolby Pro Logic II. Uninvolving. Yep, that just about sums things up here. I remember one bass moment... and that was when a car passed from screen left to screen right! No thuds from bullets, no “ptwang” from ricochets - just... nothing much.

Extras

Zero extras here. In fact the main menu screen offers a choice of playing the movie and choosing from a mere twelve chapters. That's it.
Triggermen
For me this movies' one saving grace is actor Saul Rubineck, who plays the part of Jazzer. Mr. Rubineck is the only person to put in a credible performance as far as I'm concerned, and unfortunately he survived for about five minutes of screen time. This should come as no surprise, then... I do not recommend Triggermen as a “keeper”. Should I recommend the movie as a rental? Why not? Just as long as there is nothing else on the shelves, that is. Snore.
