Code Of Honor Blu-ray Review
“Code Of Honor” is as generic as they come.
In “Code of Honor,” a former Special Forces Colonel (Robert) becomes a vigilante after his family is killed by criminals. Now, Robert spends his days killing (mostly sniping) gang members, drug dealers, basically any criminal. Meanwhile, the cops and a mysterious Agent (who apparently served with Robert) are trying to figure out who is responsible for these crimes. Along the way, there are a couple of subplots involving an exotic dancer who criminals believe has valuable intel and a TV reporter.
Much like recent Bruce Willis films, “Code of Honor” is yet another movie entirely sold on international star appeal (in this case Steven Seagal). No more, no less. The film itself is your standard needlessly long cheap action movie complete with poor CGI, endless bullets, slow mo padding, stilted acting across the board, and a predictably dumb plot twist. Now, you’re probably thinking it’s just a turn off your brain action movie, but it doesn’t even entertain! The film is entirely lacking in excitement or emotion.
For you Steven Seagal fans out there, I think even you’re going to be disappointed by his “starring role” here. Not only is his role limited (he doesn’t have a line until minute 48), but he has very little to do overall aside from stare, glare, shoot guns, and smoke cigars. He has a couple quick action scenes, but mostly, he’s perched on a roof shooting someone in silence.
Presentation: 1.78:1 1080p. How does it look? The film offers very little in terms of cinematography bu the transfer is solid.
Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? The track fares better here (especially during the action scenes).
