Skin Trade (2015/Magnolia/Magnet Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: A Film: B

After Detective Nick Cassidy (Dolph Lundgren) and his family was left for dead by Drug Lord/Sex Slave Trader Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman), Nick survives and vows revenge for death of his family and chases Dragovic around the world. He is joined by Thai Detective Tony (Tony Jaa) who also wants to stop Dragovic's illegal slave trade. Together, they will cross the line and do whatever it takes to destroy Dragovic's human trafficking network in Ekachai Uekrongtham's action drama Skin Trade (2015).

After Cassidy busts Dragovic's New York's human trafficking and gets Dragovic's son killed, Dragovic takes revenge on Nick's family and then escapes to Thailand under government immunity. Nick goes AWOL and goes on a manhunt for Dragovic and his underworld network. Detective Tony is after Dragovic for the countless young girls he has forced into the sex/slave trade, but unknown to Nick or Tony. they were both betrayed by one of their own. Now with nothing to lose both Nick and Tony take on Dragovic's underworld.

This was a non-stop action movie with a mix of martial arts, kung fu, and Muay Thai boxing (but just FYI if your opponent is a 300 lb heavy weight wrestler/boxer, your going to lose) filled with not only hand to hand combat but chase scenes, gunfights and explosions. Better than expected, you should see it if this is your kind of film.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition transfer offers a very consistent digitally shot image throughout, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is pumped up for the action as expected and is well done. Extras include behind the scenes fighting, making of the movie, look at the director, commentary/interview with Dolph Lundgren and deleted scenes.
