4.0 out of 5 stars Good Arnie Flick December 23, 1999
By Hans
Format:VHS Tape
Well, the script needed a little help. In many places it was rather corny, but oh well. I don't think that most people view these types of films for the literary experience. The action at the end of the movie is worth the price of the video. A good final shoot-out. I always feel better after watching this scene. It's good for venting. Arnie takes them all out in a fierce gun battle. Rather excilerating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Early Ah-nold yarn worth checking out August 29, 2004
Format:DVD
After finding sucess with Conan the Barbarian and the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in this half decent action yarn playing a disgraced FBI Agent called back into duty to go undercover to track a mob boss. The script, directing, action, and so forth are pretty routine for an 80's action movie, but good 'ol Arnold's magnetic charm keeps Raw Deal rolling even when it seems it's about to fall apart. The cast also includes longtime Law & Order vet Steven Hill, and most of the rest of the cast is pretty forgettable. Still worth checking out though for Arnold afficiondos who missed out on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars super October 31, 2004
Format:DVD
As the Chicago Mafia attempts to murder witnesses who could incriminate them in court, Mark Kaminsky, a former FBI agent (Arnold Schwarzenegger), attempts to infiltrate the organization and root out the assassins. It's time for dues to be paid ... "Ah-nuld" style! Kathryn Harrold, Ed Lauter, Darren McGavin and Sam Wanamaker co-star.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Classic From the Golden Age of Ah-nuld May 29, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let's face it - schlock as an art form has its place in our culture. Schlock takes many forms, from formulaic teen comedies, weepy romantic `comedies' and the trying-to-be-serious-but-looking-positively-ridiculous hard-boiled cops `n' robbers movie.

Raw Deal is the latter. Taken in a slightly different direction (and with an entirely different cast) the script might produce something dark, gripping, and ultimately rewarding. But watching John Irving's vision of Raw Deal is rewarding in its own way - lots and lots of unintentional laughs, not to mention a seemingly never-ending clatter of empty shell casings. If you like Ah-nuld pre- "Eraser," when his characters were given more leeway to act like, well, a muscle-bound Austrian playing the John Wayne role without a hint of shame, Raw Deal is an outstanding film.

As I said before, the plot could have been believable, but there's no real concern with reality here, and that works in the film's favor. The current Governor of California is a small-town sheriff in an unhappy marriage, having been removed from "The Agency" (gamely represented here by a super frumpy Darrin McGavin as some kind of rogue FBI boss named Shannon). Well, wouldn't you know it, Arnie's former boss loses a son to gangsters. To quote Mayor Quimby , "Those wacky gangsters. What're ya gonna do?" Well, Shannon decides to enlist the Terminator off the books to terminate those wacky gangsters.

But the termination comes not in the "Commando" mold of seek-and-destroy, but in possibly the least logical way possible - Mr. Schwartzenegger goes undercover in the Chicago mob. I'm no organized crime expert, but I somehow get the sense that the mob, whether Italian, Chinese, or Russian, tends to recruit from within.

Quintessential Arnie vehicle of the mid-80s made to capitalize on his Terminator success, Raw Deal will remind you of at least 10 other films (not all of them necessarily better).

Mr. S plays an ex-FBI agent who had to retire for various Dirty Harry-esque actions/brutality. His old boss' son, who has become a mob informant, is whacked while in hiding, so the FBI chief brings Arnie out of retirement 'unofficially' to whoop some serious 80s hiney. It's sort of like Death Wish 3, with the cops (or FBI) hiring a professional to clean up the town. This time it's Chicago, which had more than its fair share of 80s shoot em ups and would of course re-welcome Arnold in Red Heat two years later.

What follows is the big guy infilitrating the Chicago Outfit, which features some reliable character actors like Robert Davi and even Sosa from Scarface, who looks like bizarro Sam Neil and this time plays an Italian, not a Cuban. What difference does it make? Eventually, Arnold blows his cover, some other stuff happens, and a lot of people get blown away, some publicly.

The climax is kind of like the Tech Noir scene from The Terminator, except this time Arnie is the good guy, and whole lot more liquor and glass get wasted as inept mobsters are shot to pieces. At one point, there's a shootout from about three feet away. Guess who wins?

Completely dependable shoot-em-up for a slow night, full of 80s staples like the 'getting geared up for battle scene' (featuring guns being assembled, loaded, cocked, and holstered in a scene begging for theoretical analysis of male adequacy), as well 'humorous' scenes with Arnold in what was already an attempt to explore his 'range' as an actor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Schwarzenegger Leads This Genre October 6, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Of all the 'get burnt, get even' types of movies, Arnold leads the pack! He's huge, he's tough, you can hurt him but can't kill him, but best of all, he metes out the justice and punishment better than anyone. You'll walk away from this movie feeling satisfied and empowered. High five, Arnold!!!

Is this really Full-frame or a Typo?
Paul, in case you still don't know the answer to your question, the current description is a mistake. I have viewed the DVD, and it's in widescreen, about 2.20 or 2.35 ratio. The sound is good and the picture is decent. The sound offers a choice between 5.1 dolby digital, and 2.0 dolby stereo,... Read More
