|Cacopoulos (ELI WALLACE) takes $300,000 from two hombres of questionable moral fiber, then proceeds to spread the cash around generously. His victims follow his trail, but when the men finally do meet, they must join forces to defend themselves against a murderous desperado. Before that battle is over, Cacopoulos has once again absconded with the cash, and the chase is on, ultimately leading them to a crooked Mississippi gaming house, a blazing gun battle and lots of money for everyone.
SPECIAL FEATURES – 3½/5

Kino Lorber releases Ace High onto Blu-ray and is presented in the original 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio. The 1080p transfer was taken from a 4K scan of the 35mm original camera negative which was provided by Paramount Pictures. This is a glorious looking picture with sharp and well defined detail along with nicely balanced colors even if they are on the natural side of the scale given it’s a western setting.
The provided DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is more than serviceable, dialogue coming across with good clarity and there is decent depth for the more action-centric scenes with the gunfire showing good direction from side to side.
