Jarhead 3: The Siege is at least an okay flick though it takes more than a few cues from the real life events in Benghazi that were portrayed in the big budget Michael Bay flick, 13 Hours. As it is, it’s passable entertainment.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Assigned to protect a seemingly safe U.S. embassy in the Middle East, elite Marine Corporal Evan Albright (CHARLIE WEBER) through he wasn’t going to see much action. But when a hostile, extreme militant group launches a surprise attack aimed at killing an embassy informant, Albright’s team is caught off guard. Outgunned and outnumbered, Albright routine assignment escalates into an all-out war. With national security at stake, an international crisis ensues.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.0/5


This release comes with a matted, title-embossed slip cover. Inside is a redemption code for the Digital HD copy as well as a standard DVD Copy.

The only feature included is a basic Making of Jarhead 3 (7:02; HD) featurette.

 


VIDEO – 4.0/5


Universal Pictures Home Entertainment releases Jarhead 3 onto Blu-ray presented with a 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture more or less looks like every other DTV release. Detail is relatively sharp and there’s some natural noise giving it some texture while colors are drab with more brown in keeping with the Middle East setting.

AUDIO – 4.25/5


The disc includes a basic but effective 5.1 DTS-HD MA track where dialogue levels are crisp and clear and when the action picked up, the depth comes through every available channel quite efficiently. It’s nothing reference quality or anything but for what presumably was a limited budgeted flick (guessing $5M give or take), it’s not too bad.

 


OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, Jarhead 3: The Siege is at least an okay flick though it takes more than a few cues from the real life events in Benghazi that were portrayed in the big budget Michael Bay flick, 13 Hours. As it is, it’s passable entertainment. The Blu-ray released through Universal offers good video/audio but falls far short with the bonus material.
