4GOT10 (2015/Cinedigm Blu-ray)

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

Dolph Lundgren, Johnny Messner, Vivica A. Fox, and Danny Trejo star in Timothy Woodward Jr.'s 4GOT10 (2015), a nicely shot and at times, brutal action film set in the modern West Coast that involves stolen money, a high body count, and plenty of violence. I have to admit that the film isn't quite as bad as I was expecting from the title, but is still a second rate action thriller.

A wounded man (Messner) wakes up in the desert surrounded by dead bodies with no memory and roughly three million in stolen cash. First to the crime scene is a Sheriff and his Deputy who plan to take the money only to be gunned down. Now Messner is on the run from a DEA Agent (Lundgren) and a fast talking Cop (Fox) who will stop at nothing to bring him down. There's also a fun performance from Machete himself, Danny Trejo who plays a drug lord who is out to take back what it is his.

Some things stylistically in the film don't really work such as a Guy Ritchie style name card that comes up when each new character is introduced and some of the dialogue which is pretty cheesy. The film doesn't try to be anything more than what it is - which is cheesy low budget action film not entirely grounded in reality.

The film looks great on Blu-ray disc with a sharp 1080p high definition transfer and a lossless, powerful DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track that sounds incredible. Extras include Behind The Scenes and Deleted Scenes.

You can do a lot worse than this film but it didn't blow me away enough to recommend.
