DVD release for Jan 16th

Father Brown, Set 1 (1982) Two-disc set with seven episodes of the PBS Mystery! series based on the G.K. Chesterton clergyman-detective; $39.99. (Acorn Media).

In Her Line of Fire (2006) Mariel Hemingway, David Keith, David Millbern, Jill Bennett. A tough but beautiful Secret Service agent (Mariel Hemingway) protecting a U.S. vice president has her hands full when their plane goes down in a storm near a remote island used for training local rebels; she must fight hard to save the lives of the vp as well as her love interest, rookie reporter Sharon Serrano (Jill Bennett). Originally aired on here! in April of 2006. (Genius Products).

In Her Line of Fire was produced for Here!, a cable network that caters to the gay/lesbian community. Thus the protagonist Lynn (Hemingway) was made a lesbian. Despite this twist, IHLOF feels like one of the many mid 80s films that road the coat-tails of Rambo. Hemingway is passable in place of Stallone, but nothing about this film is particularly memorable.

Undisputed II: Last Man Standing (2006) Michael Jai White, Scott Adkins, Eli Danker, Ben Cross. Martial arts expert must fight to save himself in a Russian prison. Extras: Commentary by director Isaac Florentine and actors Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins, behind-the-scenes featurette, storyboard comparisons. (New Line).

In 2002, a fight flick called Undisputed was released. It featued Ving Rhames, Peter Falk and Wesley Snipes. Like most Snipes films, it was a major bomb.
So naturally, a sequel was made. This puppy features none of the orignal stars and if the original had any charm, that is missing as well.
