directed by Michael Cimino
USA 1985

 

  Corruption. Extortion. Sometimes, even, assassination. For the tradition-bound mob bosses of Manhattan's Chinatown, there are age-old ways of running things. And now there's a police captain Stanley White's way.

Mickey Rourke portrays White, a war veteran who has a Vietnam-sized chip on his shoulder when dealing with an emerging blood feud in Chinatown. John Lone plays the crime lord standing in the line of fire of White's relentless campaign. And Academy Award-winning director Michael Crimino (The Deer Hunter), working from a screenplay based on the novel by Robert Daley (Prince Of The City) and co-scripted by Oliver Stone, fills the screen with adrenaline rushes of action and excitement.

Comments:

I would say that this is a very good job by Warner. Keeping the dark image and using no brightness manipulations we have a reasonably sharp picture, good colors and strong black levels. This film is a bit unique and sticks out from other mainstream productions garnering a bit of a cult following. Rourke is arguably at his best. Quite a coo for Warner to include the Cimino commentary as it really sheds light in certain areas. Good subtitles and 5.1 audio make this a good purchase offered at a reasonable price.  out of
