600 Miles (2016/Lionsgate DVD)

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

Tim Roth stars in the 2016 gritty drama 600 Miles, the directorial debut from Gabriel Ripstein. Primarily about weapons running and set across a Mexican landscape, the film is slow and mainly a character-driven piece. Roth delivers a powerful performance as usual but the lackluster ending weakens what could have been a strong film.

600 Miles also stars Kristyan Ferrer, Monica Del Carmen, and Greg Lutz to name a few.

Hank Harris (Roth), is a U.S. agent who is out to bust an international arms-smuggling racket and make a good name for himself. Outsmarted and overpowered by a young Mexican gunrunner (Ferrer), Harris decides to smuggle Hank into Mexico and deliver him to his crime bosses. Over the course of the journey they befriend each other amidst the backdrop of a country overrun by a deadly cartel. Now they must work together to get out alive.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a superb, English, lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track that is standard for the dated format, it plays as well as it can in this format. A digital UV copy of the film is also included which is in a even more compressed format.

No extras.
