Sector 4: Extraction (2014/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: C Sound: C Extras: C Film: C+

When a group of US mercenaries get caught by the Al-Queda, only one man barely makes it out alive. After recovering a few months later, he vows to rescue his comrades who have been imprisoned all this time. He follows the code of the brotherhood of soldiers... "No One Left Behind." When jobs too dangerous or politically unstable, the military hire soldiers of fortune/ex-military (or Private Military Contractors) to do the job, because if things goes bad, the PMCs are expendable and the government can deny all involvement. One man decides to go back into enemy territory after living with survivor's guilt. He re-trains himself to become the ultimate one man army against terrorists and shows them payback's a bitch.

Olivier Gruner's Sector 4: Extraction (2014) was like a mix blend of Rambo and Rocky, ex-military war veteran training to rescue his friends behind enemy lines, but you have the director co-starring with a tired Eric Roberts and you can imagine the problems that result. To clarify, the story plot was like Rambo's and the music was like the Rocky soundtrack, but that where the similarity ends. The filming and costuming looked cheap and fighting techniques were laughable in the fact those moves would gotten you killed in real life. At least it was unintentionally amusing... sometimes.

The anamorphically enhanced image and lossy Dolby Digital sound are nothing to write home about and extras include digital download & trailer gallery.
