Editorial Reviews

Master thief Sam Quint (Academy Award® winner, Tommy Lee Jones), hired by the government for a high-level job, hides a computer disc containing vital evidence in a sleek experimental supercar known as The Black Moon. But before Quint can recover the disc, the car is stolen by Nina, a high-tech auto thief (Linda Hamilton). With time running out, Quint must go on the prowl and break into an impenetrable skyscraper to reclaim his property. And what Sam Quint wants, he gets, no matter what he has to do. This 1986 action-packed thriller is written by John Carpenter (Creator of Halloween, The Fog, and Escape from New York).

And with this DVD release, we finally get a decent, unedited transfer of the film!!

An older, but just as great, movie with two of my favorite actors in it, Tommy Lee Jones and Linda Hamilton.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who loves great action movies.

This review is for the Black Moon Rising DVD with UPC 013131549690 and ASIN: B000WC38DM, from Starz / AnchorBay. DVD Release Date: December 18, 2007.

There are several versions of Black Moon Rising available on DVD. Please be aware that many have VERY poor transfers, are full-screen (cropped), and some are even missing the opening computer "text" that sets up the plot. I've purchased three versions on DVD and this one (The 2007 release) seems to be the only one that finally gets it right.

Black Moon Rising is based on a story by John Carpenter, who is also listed as a co-writer of the screenplay. If you're looking for a good action B-Movie from the 80's, Black Moon Rising should be at the top of your list. Here's why....

Perfectly cast; Tommy Lee Jones totally owns the role of "Quint", a character that should have seen many more big screen adventures. Linda Hamilton, fresh off her "Terminator" success, delivers a fine performance as "Nina", a professional car thief. Film and TV veteran Robert Vaughn (The Man From UNCLE, Magnificent Seven) makes an excellent villain. Even the supporting cast (Bubba Smith, Richard Jaeckel, Lee Ving) are right on target!

I cannot review this movie without also mentioning the OUTSTANDING score by legendary tv and film composer Lalo Schifrin, who is perhaps best known for having created the "mission impossible" theme. I must also mention the incredible "Black Moon" car, which looks absolutely great!

The weakest link within the film is a screenplay that could have used a rewrite, and a few special effects in need of a bit more work. But in the end, it's the cast, music, and overall "style" of the film that more than makes up for the low-budget and script problems.

Black Moon Rising is a low-budget, 80's B-Movie that is certain to entertain! And with this DVD release, we finally get a decent, unedited transfer of the film!!

There are several versions of this DVD available. The newest release is;

Studio: Starz / Anchor Bay
DVD Release Date: December 18, 2007
ASIN: B000WC38DM

Look for it here on Amazon.

This release is also by Starz / Anchor Bay (DVD Release Date: January 30, 2001), but apparently some people have had skipping issues with this version (see the other reviews). Also, avoid the other releases which are cheap for a reason; most are full screen and poor quality transfers. Some even have the opening "computer text" removed.

I own three DVD versions and my recommendation is to go with the newest (2007) release!

It happens. Wrong time. Wrong place. Who Knows? But sometimes even movies released into regular circulation from the major studios fall through the cracks. This is definitely one of those. Tommy Lee Jones as the industrial spy is as cool and calm as he's ever been. Linda Hamilton is as good as she's ever been and Richard Jaekel turns in another steady performance. The plot is clever and tight enough to satisfy most and the directing by Harley Cockliss (whatever happened to him? This seems to be his only outing) is tight and well paced. This is just a good action thriller, and it has one of the best fist-fight scenes ever. It isn't quite up to the budget of the newer "high concept" titles like Enemy of the State or The Rock, but it's every bit as nifty as those. Jones' performance alone is worth the price of the rental so grab a pizza and a six pack and go for it. Note: The "Guy Factor" is real high here, so all you testosterone-laden males out there are virtually guaranteed a good time.

Is he good, or is he good - best love scene with the best guy in it. Good work, Tommy!

I had the opportunity to see this at a movie matinee back in 1986. The audience's reaction to the film was pretty much the same as mine:

* Tommy Lee Jones' performance was the best thing about the whole movie. After years of being typecast as anti-social, sociopathic, and sometimes even psychopathic characters in movies like "The Executioner's Song," "Eyes of Laura Mars," and "Rolling Thunder," Jones was finally given a chance to display his lighter side here. And boy did he deliver. If you loved his performances in later films like "MIB" or "The Fugitive," then you know what to expect from him here. Oddly enough, despite this film's many shortcomings, it was ""Black Moon Rising" that made me a Tommy Lee Jones fan.

* The first twenty to thirty minutes of the film were surprisingly good. The story opened briskly, there was some very sharp dialogue (some of it written by John Carpenter, who had originally been hired to direct), and one solid (and underrated) car chase between Jones and Linda Hamilton.

* The last twenty minutes, where Jones breaks into the high security building to steal back the supercar, were also quite good. There was some great stunt and special FX work, including one action scene that had the audience cheering, as well as a solid, good ol' fashioned, bare-knuckled brawl between Jones and villain Lee Ving.

So what's wrong with "Black Moon Rising"?

Sad to say, pretty much everything in between. After a promising start, this movie goes straight down the tubes and becomes downright BORING. Talk, talk, talk, and very little action. The plot at this point seems to be just spinning its wheels.
