I think the makers of this film were trying to make a serious movie and that's what makes the movie even better! Cause while there is non-stop action galore it's so unintentionally funny in it's seriousness that you'll have to watch it at least 3 times to absorb it all. A true American classic that needs to be on a deluxe edition DVD.
For other films with memorable hair see Chuck Norris' power beard in INVASION U.S.A. and Vanilla Ice's fossilized pompadour in COOL AS ICE.
A few good lines:
"God forgives. The Brotherhood doesn't."
"This reminds me of my father's last words: 'Don't son, that gun is loaded!'"
"Imagine the future, Chains, cause you're not in it."
D: Craig R. Baxley (ACTION JACKSON, "STORM OF THE CENTURY")
Joe Huff/John Stone - Brian Bosworth (ONE TOUGH BASTARD, BLACK OUT)
Chains Cooper - Lance Henrikson (ALIENS, THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM)
Ice - William Forsythe (FIRESTORM, DEUCE BIGALO: MALE GIGOLO)
First of all, the DVD clearly states that is presents a Widescreeen and Fullscreen version. But then if you look further into the specs listed, it also says the DVD is being presented in 1:33:1 which is a sneaky way of saying 4:3 or as we most understand that to be.....FULLSCREEN!
This DVD is a flipper, and on the unmarked side you get what appears to be a fullscreen presentation. Now, flip it over to the side that is actually marked "Widescreen" and you will get NOT a widescreen version, but a fullscreen version that has been cropped at the top and the bottom so as to give the false appearance of being widescreen. But as you watch, you will notice that key images in certain scenes are only 1/2 visible. It became obvious when I got the tape measure out to confirm what I already suspected....cropped top and bottom. Shame shame shame.
The sound gets no props either. Again the specs tell you that this is a Dolby Surround audio, but it doesn't sound like it. All the sound is to the front, and mostly directed to the center channel. My impression is that this is basically a "stereo" mixing that does nothing to enhance the action. The sound you hear in the surround speakers is just residual noise, not much else. You'll have to listen to this one at full volume for effect.
On the plus side, the DVD transfer is very crisp and clean. The images are sharp, and the colors are very deep. I'm shocked actually at the clarity of detail for such a lousy DVD treatment, but the video looks great.Read more ›
Stone Cold has some of the best talent around making this movie happen, Brian Bosworth, William Forsythe, Lance Henriksen (Millenium, Hard Target, Terminator).
"Sometimes you gotta just turn it on".....so grab this video if you can, and turn it on....you won't be disappointed.
