This review is from: Blood Out (DVD) Luke Goss is a good actor. I am amazed at how he sounds so American when he actually has an English accent. His acting is believable.
This is the story of a cop whose brother was a drug dealer and waskilled by his gang when he is trying lo leave his criminal life. Afterthe death of his brother he decides to take justice into his own hands,he leaves the police and he manages to enter the gang that killed hisbrother. In general, the dialogs are boring and weird, some scenes arevery strange indeed, in particular one with sadistic girls and theirboss. Worst movie I have ever seen, this director shouldn't be able towork again. Bad story line and even worst direction. A bunch of girlsand some crazy camera angles don't do the trick! Learn how to directproperly a movie.
The film is adventurous, some of the scenes are splendidly colourful ina pantomime, burlesque peep show kind of way. The streets look mean,the cops look bad and the baddies look badder, apart from Kilmer whojust looks like a camp, fat has-been.Goss plays a cop forced to throw in his badge and infiltrate theunderworld to seek revenge for his brother's death. Goss has come alongway since his band days, and looks the Jason Streatham'esque mean moodyguy who's not to be messed with, but his accent is terrible. At times,English, at times a bit Aussie I think he just manages to get away withit, but it is distracting. His slight frame also has you questioning attimes whether really, really he is capable of ploughing into guys twicehis size and pummelling them to bits. When he turns sideways he mostdisappears.That aside, the rest of the cast are great, specifically with regard toTamer Hassan, who delivers a rock solid performance as the egomaniacElias. Around him, he is surrounded with a very believable army ofthugs and this alone saves the film.I think this was a bit too big for Goss, at this juncture, especiallywith a non-native accent, but the action, and slow underlying story isbelievable and keeps you watching.
This review is from: Blood Out (DVD) Got here promptly as estimated and as described in the product detail. Thanks, I am very satisfied with my purchase!
I had no expectations for this film so my poor review has nothing to do with expecting something decent, but there has been a bit of confusion with customers regarding this and Gun [Blu-ray]; they both have 50 Cent and Kilmer, they both have the same cover art and they are both really bad.A standard cop revenge film with some solid urban music, hot ladies doing nasty things and Val Kilmer looking more and more like that great American Dad!, Vol. 6 quote about becoming a pumpkin. But what surprised me is how incredible the BD quality is - flawless. The night shots, the close-ups, and even the out of focus shots all looked amazingly clear and vibrant. Albeit this was difficult to see at times (did several pause-check stops to test clarity) as the director chose to do the really shaky-cam thing - irritating. The DTS was mixed well with only one editing flaw in the whole movie. Now for the laundry list of problems...Those looking for 50 Cent will be disappointed as he is in the movie for only a few minutes (but is prominently placed on the cover art). Val Kilmer walks onto the set for one sequence and was horrible. Vinnie Jones has a couple of sequences but he muddled through the lines (although he does get the cheesy car chase scene at the end of the film) - so the film rests on Luke Goss. He performs on par, but the best acting was actually from Ed Quinn of Eureka: Season Two. The cover art is so misleading with Luke Goss being given fourth billing but he is in almost every scene.The only supplement is a 16-minute interview piece that is clip-heavy and self congratulatory. Region coded A, English and Spanish subs. 1.5 stars for the film and 1.5 for the BD specs. A renter maybe, but you would have to be a hardcore Goss fan.
This review is from: Blood Out (DVD) Blood out is a good movie with a decent balance of action and character development. Michael is easy to like, especially if you enjoy tortured heroes. He's rugged but not lacking in emotion. The female lead expectedly flaunts her sexuality, but she's not just window dressing. It would have been nice to see her role expanded even more because she is an interesting character. Most of the secondary characters are also well done. This movie is about revenge, but also about redemption. Luke Goss fans and action fans in general don't miss this one. If I could rate this 4.5 I would have, since it's better than a 4.
What do you do when the law doesn't help? After his brother is brutally murdered Sherriff Spencer (Luke Goss) is let down by the people he hoped would help. Taking matters into his own hands he goes undercover in the gang that did it in order to get revenge. Looking at the cover it seems like another 50-cent/Val Kilmer movie, which makes you think twice about getting it. Vinnie Jones, Fiddy and Kilmer have a total screen time of about 2 minutes. Luke Goss is the main star of the movie. I was not expecting alot being that I thought it as a 50 cent/Kilmer movie, although "Gun" was not as bad as I expected so I had a little more expectations for this one. This was a movie that started off flat and never improved. The acting wasn't as bad as I expected though. It was not terrible, but had all the drama and excitement of watching a dog play fetch, fun for a while then just sitting waiting for it to end. This is a movie that a lot of people will like, I just can't get into this kind of thing. I give it a C-.Would I watch again? - No I wouldn't
This review is from: Blood Out [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) Bought this a part of a special deal. Boring C-grade. The only good perfomance is by Lucke Goss. Save your cash.

Some people watch this movie just because 50 Cent is in it, think its arap movie or something, build up expectation for it, but getsdisappointed which makes it an unpleasant experience .to fully get the full feel of this movie is just to sit, relax, let itbuild, and keep a good eye on the character. Luke Gose gave a stunningperformance, his character keeps building throughout the movie.Moreover the script was nicely written. smart saying and quotes, whichis perfectly timed. Directing is perfect for this kind of movies, and the last end speechbefore it ends unexpectedly is great. i didn't want it to end, didn'tsee it coming its a MUST SEE!
STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning** Sunday Night * Monday Morning When cop Michael Savion's (Luke Goss) small time hood brother David(Ryan Donowho) is killed by mob boss Elias (Tamer Hassan) for suspectedbetrayal, he takes it on himself to dispense justice after ineffectualassurances by Detective Hardwick (50 Cent.) After making a name forhimself around town, taking down some hard nut local gang bangers, hefinds himself invited into Elias's inner circle and asked to work forhim. Elias sets his sights on turning Savion into his fighting champ inan up-coming underground fight to determine which criminal empirerules, and where Savion will strike the spring in his tail.Action is one of my favourite genres, easily one of the mostentertaining and releasing of the movie art forms. But, defend itthough I might, even I couldn't argue with the point that it certainlyisn't a genre known for needing your brain or particularly yourimagination to much extent. It's unique in the sense that any half witwriter can think up the most lazy, formulaic idea and, as long as itdelivers on the 'action' quotient and gives the audience what they'vecome to see, it can get away with this. For a lot of action films thisdoes work but, while Blood Out is not quite a disaster, the laziness ofthe story and the join the dots script ends up making it more of achore to sit through than a simple piece of violent, brainless fun.Debut director Jason Hewitt doesn't seem to have any history ofdirecting music videos, but the frenetic style he uses to shoot thefilm and tell the story leaves you thinking this might have been a fairassumption to make. The plot is not only simplistic but wavey andslightly incoherent, and coming in at just under an hour and a half,you've still been clock watching to see when it might be over simply onaccount of how bored you've ended up getting with it. None of the castcan give especially great performances, because all the roles are sogeneric and one dimensional, from Goss as the 'man out to avenge lovedone' good guy to Hassan's cardboard villain. A host of supportingstars, including 50 Cent, Val Kilmer and Vinnie Jones (an interestingappearance, given his and Hassan's reported fisticuffs bust up in whichhe came off the loser) appear in what end up feeling like minor roles.I guess if you want a simple violent, undemanding action film, BloodOut might do. But this story has been done so many times before and somuch better, you might be wiser to search around. Try under ChuckNorris. **
Gang member sees fellow member hugging brother (main character) who isa cop.Gang member gets fellow member killed by gang then since he wants outand wants his brother's support.Hugged policeman brother gets a bunch of tattoos and joins gang.Nobody notices. Filmmaker slaps audience in the face.Movie needed Val Kilmer and 50 cent to sell movie so they are thrown inas cameo roles... nothing more.Filmmaker slaps audience in the face again.No thanks. F-
This review is from: Blood Out (DVD) I was so displeased with Blood Out. I could not believe that Liongate put its name on this film. It totally looked boot-legged to me. Fancy
My mum always said if put rubbish in that is what you get out! So wecan start with the camera work, think student film and obscure lightingtechniques then we move to the 'over-acting' and then the'under-acting' in some parts.The Story line, very predictable, false advertising with regards to thesingle appearance of 50 Cent opposed to 'starring', add to that theimprobable events that take place in a police station??? It plods alongas expected, relatively good soundtrack, token chicks, gratuitousnakedness and the stilletoed heroine.But the best of all is the last minute special effects Â .. I shan'tspoil it but if you don't replay it at least 3 times to double checkwhat you just saw I'll be surprised, in fact I'll be flabbergasted,it's incredulous! Ifyou are a teenager, who enjoys action flicks forthe sake of action flicks and have no concern for quality, this is yourcup of tea!
...horrendous performances, script and dialogue. Luke Gross is about the only actor to survive this cringe-worthy mess with any semblance of credibility. Would have given it a Zero is possible. My fast forward button was prominently used to get through this garbage. At least I had a credit from Red Box so didn't have to the suffer the indignity of paying to watch this drivel.
This review is from: Blood Out [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) why is 50cent even on the cover he is only in the movie for like 5 minutes.i guess thay needed a famous face to sell the lies
I would rate this film a 6.5 out of 10. I went in definitely with verysub par expectations especially considering the opening 5 minutes ofthe film seemed like a blatant rip off from the opening 5 minutes ofthe Assault on Precinct 13 remake. Once the film moved on passed thatand I adjusted to the passÃ© (and much recently overused) style of shakycamera syndrome I was able to absorb that the film had much more tooffer. Filmed in Louisiana it had a much grittier look than Los Angelesand definitely helped sell the film a lot more than a typicalgang-banger flick shot in Compton. Also the film featured 50 cent butanother refreshing aspect was typically in a film of that nature (afilm that features a prominent rapper) more than half the soundtrackwould be wishy wash songs by that artist; but this film instead hadmany underground and fresh artists collaborating to create a veryenjoyable mix. Even the credits outro song was very good (albeitstealing the riff from 'Slow-Motion for me' rap song). Val Kilmer. Wellwhat can you say about his appearance in this film? Is it me or has heresorted to these very bit small parts in all sorts of independentmovies. He is much bigger than his days of Chris Knight in Real Geniusbut his presence does its job and doesn't distract the viewer all toomuch. More distractions fall all the sexy eye candy that is spread allover the film via slave girls in S&M outfits and Victoria Secret angelgarb. A minute into the film a sexy breast is presented to us but don'tlet that fool you, the movie is far from a late night Skinemax T&Afilm... in fact after that opening gratuity shot not many more nipplesmake there appearance. Luke Goss is a very well fit for this film andhis acting hits the X. Very believable in a role in which I don't thinkmany men could pull off. The director, Jason Hewitt (I believe hisfirst film directing), does a very good job in telling a way too commonvigilante (cop goes undercover) story in a unique way so that theviewer doesn't feel like they are watching recycled Hollywood garbagethat has been done so many times before. All in all the film isrecommended (specially if you are in a macho guy action flick mood) andthe soundtrack would be worth hunting down.
This review is from: Blood Out (DVD) Entertaining, but not memorable. I should have rented it first and saved some money. A 'B' movie at best. Save your money.
paint by numbers cop revenge movie that if you judge a book by itscover should of stared rapper 50 cent who actually was in one scene. ireally only wrote a review to point that out. boring movie, nosurprises, average performances by the actors and direction whichlacked just that direction. it is a boring straight to DVD action movienothing more. DO NOT BUY if your looking for a cheesy rapper movie likei was.pros: alright sound track fight with former wwe star bobby lashley atthe endcons: 50 cent: i know i watched this cause he was on the cover but totell the truth its probably a good thing he was barely in it. he wasterribleeverything else.
This review is from: Blood Out [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) Luke Goss knows how to carry a film. In all his films he puts his whole persona into it. 50cent has the BA qualities you need and Val Kilmer well he is just all around interesting! I really liked what I have seen so far and can not wait to get this into my DVD collection! Thanks Luke for making great films!
