Escape Plan is a fun throwback to the 80s and 90s action genre culminated with starring the two biggest actors of that era. Although neither one of them are at the top of their game, this is still an enjoyable flick well worth at least one viewing if only to see Stallone and Schwarzenegger fight.

Gridlocked is probably one of the more surprising movies based on expectations since my history with direct-to-video flicks hasn’t been the greatest. Sure, the acting isn’t anything special but Dominic Purcell and Stephen Lang serve well as the protagonist and antagonist respectively.

Absolution is yet another bad movie in an arsenal of bad movies over the past decade for Steven Seagal who continues to mumble through his lines and looks utterly uninterested in the material, not that the plot is anything noteworthy, however. This is typical DTV fodder and will be in the cheap bin in no time.

Gutshot Straight maybe had the best intentions at being a solid crime-drama but instead falls far short with a half-baked plot, some so-so acting despite a respectable supporting cast led by Stephen Lang and Ted Levine, and shoddy editing that stymied any momentum early on.

Throwdown is plain and simple a bad movie, which I guess is a bit disappointing if only the DVD cover at least looked professional and I am a fan of Vinnie Jones especially when he’s given a more substantial role. Instead we got some false advertising and an amateurish movie on the whole.

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.

EuroTrip wasn’t a favorite of mine when it originally came out in 2004 but in the years since, I’ve come to really enjoy it and find the comedy, albeit obvious, to be quite funny and a cast that have a strong chemistry. The Blu-ray released by Warner Home Video, from the Paramount catalog contract, offers decent audio/video transfers while all the features have been ported over.

Ambushed isn’t a terrible movie but one that also is guilty of some false advertising prominently featuring Dolph Lundgren, Vinnie Jones and Randy Couture on the cover despite none of them being in the film for more than 15-minutes, though in the case of Couture, perhaps not the worst thing in the world. Still, the plot is a bit muddled trying to present a message about drugs and the culture, and the performances aren’t anything special outside of one or two of actors.

Fire with Fire is a nice little suspense-thriller which, thanks to an impressive even stellar cast, lifts above a so-so script into something that will hold your attention for 90-minutes. This is hardly a challenging movie but it’s worth checking out if not for solid performances from Josh Duhamel and Vincent D’Onofrio. Having said that, don’t expect anything more.
