Cult Action Film "Hired to Kill" Blasts Its Way to DVD & Blu-Ray
Arrow Video recently send us over information for the upcoming DVD & Blu-Ray release of "Hired to Kill". The film stars Brian Thompson (whose brief turn in 1984's The Terminator led to a starring role in the 1986 Sylvester Stallone vehicle Cobra), Oliver Reed (Gladiator, The Brood) and George Kennedy (The Delta Force and the Naked Gun series).
Special features on the DVD & Blu-Ray include Brand new audio commentary with editor Barry Zetlin, Hired to Direct - a brand new interview with director Nico Mastorakis on the making of Hired to Kill, Undercover Mercenary - a brand new interview with star Brian Thompson, Original Theatrical Trailer, Stills Gallery and Original Screenplay, entitled Freedom or Death (BD/DVD-ROM Content).
"Hired To Kill" hits retail on May 17th.
Starring legendary actors Oliver Reed (Gladiator, The Brood) and George Kennedy (The Delta Force and the Naked Gun series), Hired to Kill is a hugely entertaining action flick featuring guns, girls and a plethora of budget-busting explosions for good measure.
Action movie staple Brian Thompson (whose brief turn in 1984's The Terminator led to a starring role in the 1986 Sylvester Stallone vehicle Cobra) stars as Frank Ryan, a mercenary sent to track down a rebel leader in hostile territory. Posing as a fashion designer, he'll be aided by a posse of beautiful - but deadly - women.
Whilst the opportunity to see Oliver Reed chewing up the scenery behind an elaborate moustache merits the price of admission alone, Hired to Kill is also noteworthy as being co-directed by Nico Mastorakis - the man behind such cult favourites as Island of Death and The Zero Boys.
