Absolution (2015/Lionsgate Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: C+ Film: C-

Steven Seagal is BACK along with Vinnie Jones in the action rampage Absolution, which is your typical revenge thriller with some cool action to fill in the gaps. If you are a fan of Seagal, then you will be pleasantly surprised by some pretty cool action sequences in this and a classic performance from the man himself. The movie opens with the explanation that Seagal hasn't killed the one that he needs to yet until he achieves 'absolution' and can walk away from his violent lifestyle. Even in his prime age, Seagal is still able to disappear and reappear like Batman when attacking his enemies and fight in slow motion just like he used to. He DID take on The Expendables after all, didn't he?

This time, when a contract killer (Steven Seagal) encounters a girl on the run from a mob boss (Vinnie Jones) with powerful political ties, he is torn between protecting the girl, and remaining loyal to the government agency that hired him for the mission. A sequel to Seagal's A Good Man, this film is about as equal as its predecessor so if you enjoyed that then you may want to give this a shot.

Lionsgate's presentation on the disc is top notch with a sharp 1080p, 1.78 X 1 digital high definition transfer with a powerful DTS-HD MA 5.1 track to boot. There's also a digital copy of the film included to watch on your smartphone or tablet if you're into that sort of thing.

Extras include...

A Behind The Scenes Documentary

Typical Seagal film with some F-bombs and some violence. If you're craving another adventure, then this may be right up your alley. If not, nothing new or super special that makes this stand out.
