  • The only extra seems to be a 16 page booklet, which is sad, but we germans must be happy its widescreen and uncut/unrated, because every version before was cut.
  • I hope the quality is good, there aren`t any hints or articles yet about the overall quality of this release.

The DVD is a nice steelbook, really like the cover art for this. Also available on Blue-Ray from 25th of November 2011.

I already ordered a copy, not for me, though. I agree that this may not be the best Dolph film out there, but I remember it fondly for a number of great scenes. In the middle section it slows down, but it is necessary for character developement. In the remaining parts Dolph establishes himself as the action hero we all know, after Rocky IV and The Masters of the Universe.


A friend of mine put up a picture quality comparison here…

the former dvds were really bad… but now we got a decent dvd and blue-ray….I read a US version is on its way, too.

    I already have this on DVD, but a Blu-Ray sounds fantastic. Too bad I don’t have a Blu-Ray player, I may need to remedy that!
