Posse Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Mario Van Peebles (Judgment Day), Billy Zane (Titanic) and Stephen Baldwin (Fled) shake up the frontier in this "fast-paced, star-studded, big brawny western" (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)! Filled with gun-blazing, fist-pounding action and co-starring Big Daddy Kane, Blair Underwood, Tone Loc, Pam Grier, Isaac Hayes, Nipsey Russell, Aaron Neville and more, Posse takes a page missing from the history books - and unfolds it with suspense, humor and awe-inspiring power! In 1892, a group of mostly black infantrymen, betrayed by their white commander, Colonel Graham (Zane), desert the Spanish-American War. With Graham hot on their trail, Jessie Lee (Van Peebles) leads the men to his hometown, Freemanville, only to find it's also besieged by war - a racist war! Lee's attempts to bring justice and freedom to his people make for a brilliant western that's short on words and long on "killer entertainment" (Los Angeles Times)!

Review: Posse is western film directed by Mario Van Peeples back in 1993.  It featured a predominately african-american cast, headed up by Van Peeples, Tone Loc and Blair Underwood.  The film also featured super-talent Billy Zane.  This is the first release of this film onto blu-ray.  The transfer looks good, there is little grain and the colors really pop.  The sound is great and really comes through crisp with a nice soundtrack.

Interest Range: Western, Action
