Reach Me Blu-ray Review

Reach Me Blu-ray

“Reach Me” is a sappy movie with a strong cast.

“Reach Me” is a sprawling multi character film that revolves around a life changing self-help book titled “Reach Me.” The film is comprised of a collection of interconnected stories involving the reclusive author (Teddy Raymond), a woman fresh out of prison, criminals, a troubled cop, journalists, hit men, a priest, an actor, actresses, an event coordinator, a singer, a dachshund, and a desperate man in debt. How are all of these characters connected and where are these people’s lives headed? That would be spoiling the ending.

While “Reach Me” may have been designed as an inspirational feel good movie, writer/director John Herzfeld’s corny story is little more than an excuse to hire a bunch of bankable stars that include Sylvester Stallone, Thomas Jane, Kyra Sedgwick, Omari Hardwick, Danny Aiello, Tom Berenger, Lauren Cohan, Terry Crews, Danny Trejo, Tom Sizemore, Ryan Kwanten, Cary Elwes, Nelly, Kevin Connolly, and Kelsey Grammar. The strategy partially paid off as the cast does indeed make it all rather watchable. Granted, some stars have more to do than others, but it’s entertaining enough to see Cary Elwes as an egotistical sleazy actor and Thomas Jane as a cop who can’t stop killing criminals.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: Widescreen 1080p. How does it look? “Reach Me” has been given a crisp hi-def transfer.

Audio Track: Dolby TrueHD 5.1. How does it sound? There’s not much going on audio wise here, but it’s still an adequate track overall.

The only extras here are Millennium Entertainment trailers.

Overall Thoughts: Despite having a flat-out cheesy script, “Reach Me” is better than the average VOD/home video title thanks to the all-star cast.
