Default 'In The Blood' - High-Def Digest Review

Bryan has reviewed 'In The Blood'. He says this will definitely quench your thirst for action movies. The video and audio presentations are quite good, and though there is only one extra, it's a solid one. Action fans, you'll want to own this. Recommended.

4? Really? Haven't seen it, but even the trailers looked utter dog turd. Not mention the woeful acting.

You obviously arent a fan of these kinds of action movies then.

Anything with Carano in it is a win IMO, she's the hottest action star going and she can take me down anytime

Sorry, but I'm still thirsty.

It's not fun. There's no breaks of comedy relief.

It's not fresh. Go watch Liam's Taken or Denzel's Man on Fire or Kurt
Russell's Breakdown instead. You'll be more entertained rewatching those
for the 10th time.

That I agree, so go rewatch Haywire instead.

The action is 2nd tier at best. No one rehearsed for weeks/months. The
action sequences looked like they were worked out the day before shooting
began.

About the Extra, yes, that was the best part of the disc. The interviews of
the cast and director sounds like they were convincing themselves why they
are in this project. It's too funny. Everyone was practically trying to justify
why they said yes. Gina Carano actually revealed that when she told her
agent to proceed with this, her agent was like: What! Really?

No. Don't buy it. If you must, just rent it.

For revenge flicks, this film doesn't even have the hero (heroine) deliver the
Spoiler
deathblow to the big baddie!

That's so unsatisfying, if you got invested in the revenge plot. But I doubt
you'll get invested at all.

-----

The assemblage of actors in this flick aren't bad at all. I'm impressed by the
names. But it's probably the vacation package to "work" in Puerto Rico, and
the connections of the actors with Puerto Rican heritage that may have
brought them into the film.

But this also means that the project ITSELF isn't the primary reason why
these actors took this job.

-----

Yeah it's a B film, but it's not a well executed B. I wanted to like this. But
HDD's recommendation of this film is the outlier compared to most reviews.
Consensus is right on this one.
