Jack Reed Telefilms (A Search For Justice/Death & Vengeance/Tango DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Telefilms: C+



Trying for a hit TV franchise, actor Brian Dennehy took on the role of Sheriff/Detective Jack Reed in an occurrent series of telefilms.  Tango Entertainment has issued two of them.  A Search For Justice (1994) introduced the South Chicago sleuth and Death & Vengeance (1996, three Russian immigrants are killed) offers a later installment of the man in action.  Both are entertaining, well-rounded, if predictable works that are miles away from the NBC Mystery Movie, but if you like him, might want to give them a look.


The 1.33 X 1 image is surprisingly soft from older analog transfers with detail issues, motion blur and aliasing issues.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 is barely stereo and passable, more like a TV recording of the time.  Trailers are the only extras.
