Extreme Prejudice

Overview

Artisan is well known for their ingenuity and ability to market a movie (remember Blair Witch Project?), so that's why it's disappointing when they issue such a run-of-the-mill DVD as they did for Extreme Prejudice. The film, under-appreciated in its theatrical run, is an Old West morality play with elements of Sam Peckinpah set in modern times. It stars Nick Nolte as a tough-as-nails Texas Ranger, Powers Boothe as the baddie, and Maria Conchita Alonso as the woman both men want. The DVD presents the film in a ...

Overview

Artisan is well known for their ingenuity and ability to market a movie (remember Blair Witch Project?), so that's why it's disappointing when they issue such a run-of-the-mill DVD as they did for Extreme Prejudice. The film, under-appreciated in its theatrical run, is an Old West morality play with elements of Sam Peckinpah set in modern times. It stars Nick Nolte as a tough-as-nails Texas Ranger, Powers Boothe as the baddie, and Maria Conchita Alonso as the woman both men want. The DVD presents the film in a 1.33:1 full-screen format, and Dolby 2.0 Surround sound. Except for DVD basics such as digital mastering, scene access, and interactive menus, the only other extra is some information about cast and crew members. Rather than trying to build a new audience for the film on DVD, Artisan is showing their own extreme prejudice against the movie via this half-hearted disc.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
Walter Hill's wildly over-the-top Peckinpah-flavored Western often borders on camp, but fans of the genre will enjoy the exaggerated posturing of the leads and the film's carefully stylized violence. Employing the Precambrian-era plot about former friends on different sides of the law who are in love with the same woman, Hill adds nothing new, while painting both the hero and villain as larger-than-life, primed-to-explode kegs of testosterone. For good measure, he also throws in a cadre of CIA contract mercenaries, whose indecipherable mission requires a meticulously executed bank robbery. Is this really where our tax dollars are going? Nolte, as the stalwart Texas Ranger, transforms his face into solid granite in what may be his least expressive role, while Boothe seems to revel in the hard-boiled epigrams favored by two dimensional villains. The final bloody shootout in the Mexican village, a homage which tries to out-Peckinpah Peckinpah, is skillfully executed, but its length may have some viewers checking their watch. As usual with Hill, the woman's role is negligible, leaving Maria Conchita Alonso little to do, but Rip Torn, as Nolte's Ranger buddy, is the film's most lively character, and one is sorry to see him get the deep six so early.
