The 80s Overdrive: 6 Movie Collection is just another re-package job by Mill Creek, a few triple dipping at this point. I guess if you didn’t already own any of these movies, and considering its low SRP, might be worth picking up, otherwise skip.
“Mr. Robot”: Season 1 is a strong show from beginning to end (for the most part) and even with a predictable twist, there was just enough there to enjoy between an interesting story and strong performances from Rami Malek, Christian Slater and Martin Wallström makes this binge-worthy viewing.
Way of the Wicked tries to be a combo of The Omen and Twilight and fails at both angles with hackneyed acting and a story that stumbles around until the predictable and painful end. The Blu-ray at least has good audio and video transfers but unfortunately doesn’t include any features.
Stranded is a half-assed sci-fi/horror flick culled together from numerous other, often better, films. The cast for the most part are phoning in their performances knowing exactly what kind of movie this is but giving credit where it’s due, make the most of it during some scenes. The Blu-ray released by RLJ is pretty thin with features but the audio and video transfers were pretty good.
Bullet to the Head is yet another forgettable action flick. For some, it might be a fun callback to 1980s action but for myself, I found it to be poorly made with awkward storytelling and poor casting with Sung Kang, who I generally find to be a charismatic actor (and was the only good thing in Tokyo Drift) but he had absolutely no chemistry as Stallone’s quasi-adversary. That being said, it’s not a horrible movie but definitely something that would’ve gone direct-to-video had it not been for Stallone.
Warner Brothers has announced the date and released artwork for the action thriller, Bullet to the Head starring Sylvester Stallone, Sung Kang (Fast and the Furious series), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Lost”), Sarah Shahi (“Fairly Legal”), Christian Slater and Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian).
