Overview

Two well-remembered blaxploitation movies from the 1970s ride again in this "Soul Cinema Double Feature" two-DVD set from MGM. Truck Turner has been transferred to disc in its original widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1, letterboxed on conventional televisions and enhanced for anamorphic playback on 16:9 monitors, while Hammer appears in a pan-and-scan edition reduced to the traditional TV format of 1.33:1. Both features have been taken from clean looking prints and look strong and colorful. The audio for both movies has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, retaining the original monophonic sound mixes, and they sound fine for the period but not outstanding, with a slight harshness in the high end. Both pictures are in English, with no multiple spoken language options; Truck Turner includes optional subtitles in French and Spanish, while Hammer has optional subtitles in English, French and Spanish. No bonus features are included outside of trailers for the two films. Truck Turner and Hammer have previously been released on DVD and this twin-set simply recycles the discs released in 2001 in a new package, but they still look good and have been given a two-for-one price, making them worth a look for fans of 70s grindhouse fare.
