Conspiracy (2008) — A former Special Operations United States Marine (VAL KILMER) brings justice to a small border town. After he’s wounded during combat in Iraq.

The Contractor (2007) — A former CIA marksman (WESLEY SNIPES) is coaxed back in to service to assassinate a terrorist in London. Unfortunately, the ex-agent is framed for murder and so forced to go on the run. An unlikely alliance with a 12-year-old girl may be the only way to clear his name and gain revenge over his enemies.

The Hard Corps (2006) — A former soldier (JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME) assembles a team of tough bodyguards to protect an ex-boxer. The one-time champ, now a successful entrepreneur, is targeted by a rap mogul who has recently been released from prison. The ex-con blames the boxer for putting him behind bars – and will stop at nothing to wreak his revenge.

Vertical Limit (2000) — It’s a race against time when a retired mountain climber (CHRIS O’DONNELL) leads a rescue mission to save his estranged sister (ROBIN TUNNEY) and other members of her  team trapped after a deadly avalanche.



This two-disc set is housed in a standard Blu-ray case. No features were included.


VIDEO – 3½/5, AUDIO – 4/5

Each of these movies are shown in their respective aspect ratios and for the most part the transfers look fine though given, perhaps outside of Vertical Limit, these were relatively low budget action flicks.

The Contractor and Vertical Limit received 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks while The Hard Corps and Conspiracy were 2.0 tracks. Dialogue output came across with decent clarity and the action sequences at least provide some modest depth however nothing all that noteworthy.
