(2015/Lionsgate Premiere Blu-ray)
B Sound: B Extras: C Film: D
Adams' direct-to-video 2015 action film Precious
is one of the most soulless action films I've seen in a while. A
tired script full of predictable twists and turns, bored actors, and
action that struggles to compete with episodes of CSI.
film stars Mark Paul Gosselaar (the now much older & nearly
unrecognizable Zack Morris from NBC's 'classic' sitcom Saved
By The Bell
and recently of the underrated cable hit Franklin
Claire Forlani (Mallrats,
and Bruce Willis (who was obviously only on set for three or four
days as he is barely in this movie at all).
by a woman he loved (as who is presumably pregnant with his child) to
please her mob boss (Willis), an arms dealer ends up in a twisted
deal to steal some rare gems that are worth millions. Along the way,
he beds every attractive woman he comes across, fights men on land
and by sea (and jet skis), and ends up falling in love along the way.
obvious that this film was doctored up a lot by reshoots and extra
padding to give it a longer runtime, as there are many scenes that
barely further the plot and could have been easily cut out. The
opening title sequence is tired and long (mimicking a Guy
Ritchie-style motion graphic sequence that would have been better
saved for the end credits), and some scenes that flat out don't make
any sense. Sporting a zero rating from several critics, this film is
a flat out flop.
in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.40:1 and
a nice sounding DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless track, the film
looks and sounds fine on disc and is up to standards eve when it is
not. Also included is an UltraViolet copy of the film for your
Making of Precious Cargo'' Featurette
some clever artwork on the box, this is a movie you will forget most
of as soon as you turn it off and it blends in with every other cheap
action film you've seen on the big screen, or even on television.
