Gridlocked (2015/MagNet/Magnolia Blu-ray)

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

Looking for an explosive new action film? Then you may want to check this new release from Magnet, Allan Ungar's Gridlocked (2015), which stars Dominic Purcell, Cody Hackman, Trish Stratus, plus veteran action stars Vinnie Jones, Steven Lang & Danny Glover, who are all great here.

The film reminds me the most of a throwback to the buddy cop comedies of the 1980s and 1990s, where two unlikely heroes must band together to take down a team of angry villains. While this also makes the film a bit predictable, it is saved by decent performances, tasteful violence, and nicely choreographed action sequences that are sure to please fans of the Beverly Hills Cop franchises and the like.

Former SWAT and highly proficient at all that he does, badass David Hendrix (Purcell), has to but up with the outlandish and arrogant antics from movie star (Hackman) who is making headlines on tabloids everywhere and is out of control. Walker has one chance left to straighten himself out if he wants to avoid massive jail time, so he is assigned an extended ride-along with the force. Soon, the police training facility is attacked by a team of mercenaries lead by Steven Lang.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and a lossless 5.1 DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) track, the film looks and sounds fantastic on Blu-ray disc. First premiering at Fantastic Fest, this film is a nice looking addition to any action collection.
