Movie GET CARTER on DVD for sale at

Easily one of Sylvester Stallone's best movies (and best performances), this remake of "Get Carter" was relentlessly bashed upon its release but seems to be gaining more of a following in the subsequent years. It's a good thing too, because if you pass this one up you're actually missing out on one of the most intense and just plain best action movies of the last several years. Carter (Stallone) is basically a bad guy who doesn't want to be a bad guy, a midlevel mob enforcer who it seems gotten into his current lifestyle and occupation rather unwittingly some years ago and now can't find a way out. It never says that in the movie, but that's what I got right from the beginning. He seems resigned to his role until the death of his brother brings him home to his estranged family for the first time in years, where he becomes suspicious that his brother's death wasn't an accident. When his sister-in-law and niece begin to be terrorized by some unknown assailants, Carter goes on the warpath against whoever's after them and whoever killed his brother, turning his violence loose without reserve. The bond he forms with his niece (played by Rachel Leigh Cook in a big change of pace from her comedic roles) seems to galvanize his courage to not only pursue his current targets but to re-evaluate his whole life and the choices he's made and the position as a common thug he's lived in during recent years. Very effective use of inner drama intermixes with tension and top-of-the-line fight scenes to make this a cut above many similar movies. Was ripe for a sequel but it appears unlikely one will materialze. "Get Carter" is disturbing, sursprisingly realistic, populated with well-constructed characters both good and bad, and kicks Way into full-throttle whenever the plot calls for it. A great choice for action fans and non action fans alike. PAL DVD Regio Code 2 - Language: English - Subtitles on/off: Dutch
