Entertainment doesn't get any better...

[Show spoiler]Hunter: This here is my sister. And I love her very much. And if she dies, I'll hold everyone in this room personally responsible!

Admiral: What happened Matthew!?

Hunter: These are the members of the Pentangle Hunting Group I've already killed...Jeb Wallace, Chuck Lavall, and Wonderboy, Wade Delaney...and there's at least one more to go...

Admiral: Matthew, you've exceeded your authority! The Committee must know who the rest of these people are before you proceed any further!

Hunter: Well you can tell the Committee to stick it where the sun don't shine!




Glastenbury: (petting cat at dinner table with numerous guests) I know the god**mn liberals scream "fascist," but the simple truth is, Hitler was right...the man was a visionary! 40 years after his death, half the world is communist and we're defending our borders...

Dinner Guests: (Agreeing).

Glastenbury: We should've let Hitler take care of the god**mn commie sons-of-bit**es when we had the chance! What a different world it would be today, eh?

Dinner Guests: (Agreeing).

Glastenbury: Terror will succeed unless opposed with equal terror. We're heading for Armageddon, gentleman. Are you listening?! The end time...these are the last days...

Butler: (presenting Glastenbury an envelope on a platter) There's a fellow in the hall to see you, sir...he looks rather dreadful.

Glastenbury: (opening envelope and looking at picture of his deceased friends) Ah, yes. Excuse me gentleman, this won't take long...(handing cat to Butler) Serve the coffee and cigars...(to guests) I will return.



Glastenbury: (answering phone in Hall and looking at Hunter) Yes, he's here already, thank you. Goodbye.

Glastenbury: (to Hunter) You got here a little earlier than we expected.

Hunter: Amazing, isn't it? How's the leg?

Glastenbury: Never have I felt more well-disposed, thank you.

Hunter: We have a little unfinished business to take care of.

Glastenbury: Let's go up to the great hall........You're quite a remarkable young man, Hunter. Nobody ever survived the great hunting game before, $10 million dollars interest you? Pentangle would be proud to enlist a man like you...

Hunter: Pentangle's finished, over.

Glastenbury: I'm afraid not, youngster...it's just beginning...it's spreading, it's spreading all over this country...like a brushfire on a hot summer day...

Hunter: Oh yeah? Then who's running all this? And who's the 5th member of the Pentangle?

Glastenbury: Alas, I'm sorry to say, you'll never know. Choose your weapon.




Admiral: Congratulations Matthew, you did it!

Hunter: Did I?

Admiral: Yeah. Preliminary investigations into the dead men's affairs indicate that you've cut the heart right out of the organization!

Hunter: Yeah, but there's still a few questions unanswered, aren't there?

Admiral: Oh yeah? Like what?

Hunter: Like who's the 5th point of the Pentangle? And who told them that the Richards family was staying at my place? Only your department knew that...

Admiral: Their intelligence system was very good.

Hunter: You bet it was.

Admiral: Are you insinuating something, Matthew?

Hunter: No, I'm not insinuating anything. But I'll tell you something, Admiral...if what Glastenbury said is true, and Pentangle's not finished but just starting...I want you to know something...so am I...so am I.

Cue "deep-breath" sound effect and sweet George S. Clinton score!

Here is the first Blu-ray review

http://mcbastardsmausoleum.blogspot....db70cac234353e

Quote:
Presented in 1080p widescreen (1.78:1) the film gets a MPEG-4 AVC encode and is sourced from a very nice print, there are some minor imperfections visible from time to time but overall we get a very solid presentation with strong colors, a very decent hi-def presentation from Scream Factory, yet again.

The English language DTS-HD Master Audio comes with choice of 2.0 stereo or 5.1 surround mix and it sounds quite nice even if there are no surprises, the 5.1 has more of a presence that the 2.0 with some use of the surrounds but it's pretty tame.Dialogue and effects sound are balanced nicely plus Jan Hammer's synth-heavy 80's rock soundtrack is just awful but in an awesome retro-Miami Vice sort of way, it wouldn't sound out of place on an Astron-6 film.

Onto the special features we get a A Look Back at Dark Angel (24:17) with interviews from director Craig R. Baxley and actors Dolph Lundgren and Brian Benben. The director reflects on the David Kopepp penned script, meeting Dolph and casting the film while Benben seems to mostly remember being physically hurt by Lundgren on set. Dolph himself speaks fondly of the film, recalling the work of the director and the great in-camera stunt work. We also get a reversible sleeve of artwork featuring the alternate title of "I" Come in Peace, a trailer and an image gallery, it's not the most robust set of features from Scream factory but I'm pretty jazzed just to have it on Blu-ray, a fun film.

Special Features:
- A Look Back at "Dark Angel" Interviews With Director Craig R. Baxley And Actors Dolph Lundgren And Brian Benben (27:14)
- Theatrical Trailer (1:14)
- Photo Gallery (4:06)

Super excited to pick this up on Blu ray. It's been tough holding off from buying any laserdisc or dvd version of the film for a few months now, but I think the wait will be worth it.

I own this on VHS. Picked it up at a Good Will for 50 cents.
It's one of the more obscure titles I've found while thrifting.
Solid Science Fiction film with some massive ass explosion every 5 minutes.

Also, Does anyone know whether this will have English subtitles? Shout/Shout titles vary.

I bought this on DVD in England a long time ago and it is one of my guilty pleasures.

I never expected to see this on blu ray, and was really pleased when I found this thread a few minutes ago! I'm going back to England nect month for around 6 weeks but it will be on my list to buy as soon as I return!

Another title I'd like to see on blu ray is the Hitcher (from 1986). A Rutger Hauer classic.

The Blu-ray is pretty much what we’ve seen from Scream Factory so far, and I mean that as a compliment. To take a decades-old low-budget film and make it look pretty good is quite a feat. Image clarity isn’t comparable to today’s films (and neither is the soundtrack), but I can guarantee you won’t find this film in better shape anywhere else.

Overall Picture:

Movie: B-
Video: B
Audio: B
Extra Features: B

Dark Angel is not one of Scream Factory’s massive “SPECIAL COLLECTOR’S EDITION” releases. So, it is of no surprise that there aren’t tons of special features. There is, however, a pretty entertaining featurette, in which director Craig R. Baxley, Dolph Lundgren and Brian Benben are interviewed, taking a look back at the film.
Quote:
The video quality is great. Actually, as I took a quick potty break towards the end of the film, I left the disc paused on a scene where Dolph Lundgren was just knocked on his ass, and the level of detail was pretty impressive. I love it when we get a release like this, and it’s clear to me that the people that oversaw the transfer are fully aware that that gritty and grainy look is the way that I COME IN PEACE was intended to be seen. The Stereo DTS-HD Master Audio track is noteworthy as well. It might not have the multiple channels that would fill all angles of your living room up with the sound of a whizzing disc as it tears through neck after neck, but it is crystal clear. If you are a fan of this film, this is undoubtedly the best release of it that you are ever going to see. The default cover is of course, under the name Dark Angel. Those of us from the states that remember this movie from when it was first released to it, know it as I Come In Peace, and thankfully, Scream Factory have supplied that cover art as well on the flip side.

I can't wait to own this. I also can't wait to reverse the artwork because this film will always be I Come in Peace to me. It's been a long time since my last view but I am confident the film will hold up strong and exceed my expectations.

So the Blu-ray seems to have been mastered from U.S. release print materials (unless they tricked it), as the on-screen title is apparently spelled with the U.S. re-title, I COME IN PEACE...
http://www.dvddrive-in.com/reviews/a...angelblu90.htm
Quote:
Previously released on MGM’s Limited Edition (burn on demand) collection – as well as from MGM on DVD in a couple European territories – with the onscreen title DARK ANGEL, Shout’s “Scream Factory” Blu-ray features a 1080p24 MPEG-4 AVC-encoded widescreen (1.78:1) transfer that is satisfyingly grainy and detailed in the night sequences (the grayish shadows in some scenes appear to be an effect of THE FLY cinematographer Mark Irwin’s lighting attempting to strike a balance between the darkness and the frequent explosions without overexposure, as mentioned by the director in the disc’s featurette). The print source carries the I COME IN PEACE title onscreen (the original DARK ANGEL title card is on view in the featurette) and runs about twenty-odd seconds shorter than the Japanese DVD’s timing (presumably the earlier MGM master had opening and closing logos which are not present on the Blu-ray). Audio is available in a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 upmix, but the additional 2.0 rendering of the Ultra Stereo mix was fine to begin with. Optional English subtitles are also included.

Although the back cover and bonus features menu screen list “A Look Back at DARK ANGEL” (24:18) as featuring the participation of Baxley and Lundgren, it also features an equal amount of input from co-star Benben. Baxley reveals that the screenwriter credit for Leonard Maas Jr. was actually a pseudonym for David Koepp (who has since written JURASSIC PARK and STIR OF ECHOES among other mainstream hits), and that he signed onto the project – mounted by actor Mark Damon’s company Vision p.d.g. (WILD ORCHID) – when it had a twenty-two million dollar budget only to then be informed that the budget would be five to seven million. Lundgren and Benben credit Baxley for what he was able to achieve with the low budget while Baxley credits special effects coordinator Van Zeebroeck, cinematographer Irwin, and the stunt team (as well as casting director Karen Rea). All three of the participants utter the over-familiar “this was all before CGI” line in discussing the effects; however, it’s more valid here since it is uttered in the context of how difficult it would have been to insert doubles into shots, the confidence the actors had in Baxley and his stunt coordinator father and stuntman brothers to keep them safe, and the enthusiasm of co-star Hues (an Olympic athlete) to do his own stuntwork (Baxley does reveal which shots were doubled and how one bit was photographed in reverse because he was worried Hues would hurt himself). All three are justifiably proud of the film without overrating it (Lundgren even chuckles over his cheesy final quip to the alien), recalling the unique experience and what they were able to achieve. The clips from the film may have been sourced from SD as they compare poorly to the feature transfer. Besides a poster and still gallery, the only other extra is the film’s theatrical trailer (2:42); however, the reverse cover art does feature the I COME IN PEACE title and poster art if viewers want the cover to match the title on the feature presentation.

Decent Blu-ray adaptation from Shout! Factory. The 1.78:1/1080p transfer is passable, though don't expect to be wowed by clarity; the visuals are pockmarked with grain throughout. The DTS-HD Master Audio stereo track offers a moderate aural experience. So-so tech specs aside, you'd be well-served to check out the weighty retrospective featuring interviews with Baxley and Lundgren and co-star Brian Benben.
