Stallone Collector's Set (Rambo: First Blood / Cop Land / Lock Up) Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: Cop Land: Action star extraordinaire Sylvester Stallone headlines James Mangold's Director's Cut of this edgy crime thriller that explodes with an all-star cast - including Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel and Ray Liotta. Freddy Heflin (Stallone) is the sheriff of a small and seemingly peaceful town populated by the big-city police officers he's long admired. But when he uncovers a massive, deadly conspiracy among these local residents, he is forced to make a dangerous choice between protecting his idols and upholding the law. which explodes with nonstop excitement! 

FIrst Blood: He never fought a battle he couldn't win--except the conflict raging within his own soul. Academy Awardr nominee Sylvester Stallone stars as war hero John Rambo. An ex-Green Beret haunted by memories of Vietnam, he was once the perfect killing machine. Now he's searching for peace, but finds instead an overzealous small-town sheriff who's spoiling for a fight. All hell breaks loose when an unjustly imprisoned Rambo escapes and becomes the target of a massive manhunt. Now he must use all his cunning, combat skills and weapons training to stay alive and outwit his pursuers. Costarring Brian Dennehy and Richard Crenna, FIRST BLOOD is an explosive action-thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final, powerful frame. Lock Up: "This is hell and I'm going to give you a guided tour!" With these chilling words, the warden (Donald Sutherland) welcomes Frank Leone (Sylvester Stallone) to Gateway Prison, a nightmare jail where every minute is hard time. The warden wants vengeance for the past; Leone wants only to survive the present. Their explosive battle of wills is the electrifying heart of one of Stallone's most heroic thrillers, 

LOCK UP. Stallone gives a monumental performance as Leone, a convict driven to break his own cherished code by a warden who will stop at nothing to get him. Sutherland portrays the sadistic prison head in this riveting white-knuckle ride to hell and back.

Review: This is the summer of action and with the Expendables 2 in theaters, now is a great time to brush up on your Stallone!    This blu-ray set includes three films from back in the day...including Lock-Up, Rambo First Blood and Cop Land.  All three of these movies are varied and great examples of Stallone's work.  Cop Land is a little more dramatic, while Rambo is all 80s action.  Lock-Up is a great mix of the two.  All three films look phenominal on high-definition blu-ray.  This is a great set for any fan of Stallone and a great value.

Interest Range: Action, Adventure
