Default 'No Way Back' - High-Def Digest Review

E has reviewed 'No Way Back,' you know, it's that great Russell Crowe movie, remember? The one with the gun from 'In the Line of Fire,' remember? No? Really? Anyway, the movie stinks. This Blu-ray has been
sprayed with the AV equivalent of Febreze. It doesn't stink, but you know something is wrong. This is one to avoid.

Personally, I'd rather see this:

Or even this:

have to agree with E on every point. a foul stinker of a film, a beyond questionable choice to release on this format (i can't imagine the dvd sales were ever that good), a dangerous blind buy (with this film, is there any other kind?), full of shit performances, capped by middling audio and video.

but it IS bd-live compatible, lest we all forget. THE FUTURE IS HERE!</sarcasm>

ROFL!! Those trailers you linked Mike are hilarious!

The Malone one makes it feel like, "On the next episode of the 'A-Team' or 'The Incredible Hulk'. LOL!!

'Raven' is just sublime. The highlight of 'Malone' is when he stares at the barn until it explodes.

Sounds like a film only Ed Wood could love.

Everything about this "action" piece is flat out awful. Its only redeeming feature is in the fact that I made it through to the end. Hence, the high score.

Awesome line, man.

Why does garbage like this get a release? Sony sits on a library of excellent films and this is what they deem worthy of rolling out now?
