    Picked this up today, good price for a Blu-Ray from an actual shop. Also a great film. Not watched it yet so can't comment on the pic quality.

    Ah an actor that makes Christian Bale seem pleasant on set. Have these actors heard of Karma?

    The film is fantastic, I hope the transfer and audio are decent, also, hopefully with some extras. :p

    Is this a pricing error, because my local asda has it for sale for over £15?

    Jean Claude Van Damme in a 'fantastic' film...surely not!

    ...at £8.98 in amazon's 3 for 2 offer it could just about be called a bargain...even then I wouldn't get it, but each to their own I s'pose!;)

    EDIT ...actually, it does get some good reviews but it's not the usual action film you'd expect from the Belgian Beefcake so fans may be disappointed!!!

    It's filmed for a large part in Schaerbeek (Brussels).
    Not many people there that speak English.
    :D

    It's a great film but the subtitles were odd at times. They referred to a megaphone as a screamaphone.

    Cheers

    My local Asda has reduced the price from £16.35. I paid the full price last week.

    :(

    It's different than his normal dribble, it shows the guy can act. It's a fantastic film, and everyone deserves to see it, at least once. Even if It's just a rental. :)
    It would have been pathetic, in English. Mr JC' can't act too well in English.

    I couldn't buy it from my local, as I was just told they got rid of the Blu section!

    Alas, I'll get it from Blyth. :smashin:

    I bought this and watched it last night.

    Good film - yes, not your typical Van Damme. It's played out as a parody of himself. Going through a child custody battle in the U.S. then he is set up in a Post Office Robbery and held at gunpoint when he is powerless unlike in his other movies!

    Have to say I'm disappointed with the picture though. Very soft overall. Not sure if this was intentional or a poor transfer as I haven't seen it elsewhere. Would be interested if anyone else can comment on this.
