"52 Pick Up"

I just saw that this excellent, underrated movie recently became available in R2 UK. I ordered it from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...099046-6968602

One more crappy old VHS can bite the dust.

I received my copy today and it's very nice. Picture and sound both much better than I've ever seen them.

John Glover's best role!

Yeah, it looks and sounds surprisingly good. I think it's a b-movie at heart but it's still a great film.

Great Gary Chang score and sweeping camera moves!

I like the original US poster, not sure about the French poster, though.
