Vendetta Blu-ray Review

Vendetta Blu-ray

Violence: The Movie.

After Detective Mason Danvers catches notorious criminal Victor Abbott and his brother, he thinks their reign of terror is finally over. Unfortunately, he was wrong. Not only are Victor and his brother both miraculously released from custody, but Victor immediately seeks revenge against Mason by brutally murdering his wife. With Victor finally locked up and Mason in a state of depression, Mason decides to kill Victor’s brother (and two other criminals) in cold blood in order to wind up in the same prison as Victor. Mason gets his wish and he slowly tries to exact his revenge against Victor inside the prison walls. His task is easier said than done, however, since everyone is after Mason. To make matters worse, the prison is completely and utterly corrupt. Will Mason survive his revenge scheme or is he doomed to die?

If the above plot synopsis sounds nonsensical and absurd, that’s because it. “Vendetta” is a far fetched revenge thriller that somehow stretches out a thin premise to 90 minutes. The movie is almost entirely comprised of an endless onslaught of bloody death and brutal violence before the inevitable showdown between Mason and Victor. It’s a truly pointless and ugly film from start to finish.

As for the cast, WWE star The Big Show and Dean Cain do the best with what they can here. The Big Show doesn’t have much to work with character wise, but he always come ass intimidating and threatening (which is what the character called for). As for Dean Cain, I have to give him some props as this is not his usual role. Granted, you never believe he could actually take on The Big Show, but he still admirably commits to the role.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: 1.78:1 1080p. How does it look? The Blu-ray disc contains a crisp hi-def transfer.

Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? While not the best track around, it still does the job.

Extras:
* Digital HD copy.
* Lionsgate trailers.
* “The Making of Vendetta” contains the usual film clips, behind-the-scenes footage, set footage, and cast/crew interviews.
* “A Haunted Location”- A featurette about the creepy Riverview Hospital location that they filmed at.
* “A Big Transformation”- An extra about The Big Show and his villainous character Victor.
