    If time would have stood still in 1989 I would have been fine with that.

    I always defended this movie from the get-go, loved it from the start.
    I think still they made a mistake by not putting the skull on his chest , so I do take 1 point off for that.
    The movie it’s a balls-out 80s Reagan Era Manly hard action picture.
    I have it on DVD and this Special Edition Blu-ray it’s a must-have for fans of these type of action movies I think.

    Any idea who is releasing this. Arrow Video, a UK unit that also releases in the US, has been making a practice of releasing more low-brow entertainment in deluxe special editions.

      Koch in Germany is releasing the HD uncut version, the picture in this article is from the upcoming Umbrella release in Australia, which unfortunately only has the unrated version as a SD extra.

      Would love to see Arrow Video or someone else do a similar take on “Showdown in Little Tokyo,” badass and criminally-underrated Dolph and Brandon Lee movie, as well.

    I just finished watching it now, and I gotta say that I like 2008s the best, but this one comes in a close second.
