Great review Mike. I recently purchased a new Elunevision 140 inch 2.35 acoustical transparent screen & a Sony VPL-HW55ES Projector. Can't wait to experience this movie on my system. I enjoyed the original 1980's british series with Edward Woodward.

This is a day one BD buy for me

Surprisingly, this is one I have not heard much on. I really like Denzel Washington as an actor and yet, this one still flew under my radar.

Thanks for the review, Mike! With your comment regarding the throwback to 90's action flicks, I will definitely have to check this one out.

if you like the cold hard action of "Taken" (just with less quick cuts) I see no reason why you shouldn't love this one as well

John Wick with Keanu Reeves? Released this year? Yeah... no. Unfortunately, there were so many theatrical releases that I missed... :( I guess I will have to check that one out, too!

Spot on review Mike! Just finished watching this one and boy oh boy what a ride. Nonstop action and very nice audio to go along with it. I agree it was reminiscent of a 90's action flick and another great performance from Denzel. If you like unfiltered action then this is definitely one to watch.

Just watched it. Amazing. Lots of action. Video & Audio were 1st rate. My surrounds were very active. Good use of surrounds.

agreed, just finished it an I liked it a good deal. It did not follow the usual where there are hundreds of people all shooting and kung fooing each other...this was very good, and i can see a sequel coming

I am having trouble playing the movie... I am playing it on my PC and it keeps switching to "Vengence Mode" (with the commentary). I have tried XBMC, and JRiver, and both of them do it. Is it even playable on a PC?
