'Beast Stalker' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Sep 22, 2009 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The Chinese action flick is heading westward to high-definition next month.

Tai Seng says 'Beast Stalker' is coming to Blu-ray in North America on October 27.

Ace action director Dante Lam (Beast Cops, Option Zero, Hit Team) is in top form once again with this raw, nail bitingly intense action thriller, and with award-worthy emotional performances by Nicholas Tse (Invisible Target and Dragon Tiger GATE) and Nick Cheung (Connected, Johnnie To's Exiled and Election). Tse is Tong, a take-no-prisoner police sergeant who accidentally killed a girl during his relentless pursuit of armed robber Cheung (Ho-man Keung).

When Cheung hired the menacing "Beast Stalker" Hung (Cheung) to kidnap the dead girl's twin sister to avoid prosecution, Tong vows not to let the same fatal mistake happens again. With spectacular action and car chases choreographed by legendary Hong Kong stuntman Bruce Law, Beast Stalker is one gritty, tension-filled cop-and-robber thriller that will have you riveted from beginning to end.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video, a Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack (with optional subtitles) and supplements haven't been revealed yet.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.95.
