An old school action movie will be taking no prisoners on Blu-ray in January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Sinners and Saints' for Blu-ray on January 10.
Directed by William Kaufman ('The Hit List,' 'One In the Chamber'), 'Sinners and Saints' boasts a powerhouse action-genre cast including Johnny Strong ('Black Hawk Down,' 'The Fast and the Furious'), Kevin Phillips ('Notorious,' 'Pride'), Costas Mandylor ('Saw 3D: The Final Chapter – VII'), Sean Patrick Flanery ('Boondock Saints' & 'Boondock Saints II,' 'Saw3D: The Final Chapter'), legendary UFC Champion Bas Rutten ('Paul Blart: Mall Cop,' 'Here Comes the Boom'), Clifford “Method Man” Smith ('How High,' 'The Fast and the Furious'), Kim Coates ('Black Hawk Down,' “Sons of Anarchy”), Louis Mandylor ('My Big Fat Greek Wedding'), Jolene Blalock (“Star Trek: Enterprise”), and Oscar® nominee Tom Berenger ('Inception,' 'Training Day,' 'Platoon').
Location: New Orleans, post-Katrina. As the leader of an elite “Street Crimes” task force squad, New Orleans Detective Sean Reilly (Strong) is trying to cope with the death of his young son and the abandonment of his wife. But when a routine warrant “serve” results in an ambush and the vicious murder of his partner, this may be the last straw that finally sends Sean over the edge.
Re-assigned by his mentor Captain Trahan (Berenger), Sean and Det. Will Ganz (Kevin Phillips) investigate a baffling gangland homicide. As the clues stack up on the case, Sean and Will realize that Colin (Flanery), one of Sean’s childhood friends, and a security contractor just back from the Middle East, seems to be at the center of their horrible case. The two quickly realize there is something far more sinister going on than either could have ever imagined.
So, buckle up for non-stop thrills with high-powered gunfights, bloody fistfights, high-octane car chases and 100% adrenaline-rushing action!
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and there doesn't appear to be any supplements.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
