Big New Releases!

Close Range - An ex-soldier takes on a drug cartel who is threatening his sister and niece in this low-budget action picture. Those who saw it warned that the script and acting was downright wooden and silly. However, they also stated that the fight choreography was impressive and that the action sequences in general were well-handled. As direct-to-DVD B-movie schlock-fests go, they felt that the fisticuff scenes make it slightly...
