4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy the DVD May 27, 2002
By A Customer
The movie HIGH RISK is a good movie. But don't buy a copy of the
DVD. It is the worst looking copy of a film on DVD I have ever
seen. The film looks totally washed out and blury...

By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Released in 1981 HIGH RISK suffered the "back of the bus" treatment while higher profile adventure epics like DRAGONSLAYER, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, CLASH OF THE TITANS, and an obscure little flick called RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK took the best seats with reviewers and moviegoers. And it's a bloody shame because this "DELIVERANCE for chuckles" features a crackerjack cast (James Brolin, Cleavon Little, Chick Venera, Lindsay Wagner, Bruce Davison, Anthony Quinn, James Coburn and Ernest Borgnine) all at the top of their game; a tight plot and swift sure-handed direction by Stewart Rafill (THE PHILADELPIA EXPERIMENT); a fast paced Latin-Jazz flavored score by Mark Snow (THE X-FILES); and a cheerful glee in toying with every action/adventure movie cliche' in the book ("what would really happen if you tried to knock someone out with the butt of pistol" - hilarious.The only drawback is in the VHS tape itself - most available versions are recorded in the LP mode and the colors aren't as crisp as they should be. But if you can find a used SP version or you've got to have a grade-A action adventure fix ... you can't do much better.

1.0 out of 5 stars bad DVD January 17, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I waited the longest of all the movies I orderd for this one. I was looking forward to sitting down with popcorn and really enjoying a movie I hadn't seen for a long time. When I put it in my player I got a blank screen. Must have a bad player, right? no I put it in another player same blamk screen. Well I'm still waiting to see Hi Risk.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip Off! December 22, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Saw this movie many years ago, and bought a copy to give it another watch.

So much for quality. The manufacturer appeared to have just taken an old copy of the film and slapped it on a DVD. The colors were faded and the sound track was fuzzy--almost garbled.

And to make matters worse, the film wasn't as good as I had remembered, but if it was a favorite, the poor quality of reproduction makes it worthless.

I swear to God, if I hear one more non-informed knucklehead mention how "this film is great, but the DVD quality sucks" I'm gonna bang noggins together. First of all understand that the rights to this film has long ago entered the "public domain". The original owners of the copyright have (surprisingly and foolishly) allowed it to lapse. So unless someone (perhaps one of the complainers harping about the "poor video quality") is willing to shell out the few hundred thousand (or more) to restore and remaster this film, then perhaps all should just shut up and be grateful that it's available AT ALL!!! A true masterpiece of action and satire, HIGH RISK is the "Holy Grail" of action adventure humor. So much so that films like ROMANCING THE STONE and others have borrowed from it heavily. Check it out and see what I mean. And hey, dig Mark Snow's kick-assed Latin-jazz / orchestral score. Coolness to the max! - CEJ

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Want Action..Then This Is The Movie! February 10, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This has got to be one of the best action movies I have ever seen. Once the action starts it doesn't stop! It will keep you on the edge of your seat. Drug Smugglers parachute into South America to rip off drug dealers but run into all kinds of trouble!! Getting back out was not an easy task for them. Good acting by James Brolin, Cleavon Little, James Colburn, Lindsay Wagner and others. This movie will definately leave all action movie lovers pleased! Well worth the price!

2.0 out of 5 stars OK movie but crummy DVD March 21, 2011
I liked the movie but this has got to be the worst DVD transfer I have seen, and that's saying something. I have the 2002 BCI Eclipse release, UPC 8736444689. It looks like somebody had a worn out VHS tape version they decided to copy to DVD. It' s a blurry full screen presentation. The colors are all washed out and there are numerous glitches in the video. The sound is mono, and limited in bandwidth. Not a pretty sight (or sound).

5.0 out of 5 stars Not an Oscar winner, but a fun movie!
This is what would happen if you or I tried to rob a Latin American drug dealer. A lot of actors that those of us who have been around for a few years will remember.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unintentionally slapstick junk with a laughably bad script
Pretty bad. The main problem is the harebrained script that can't decide if this is a farce or a caper flick, or both, or neither. Read more
