This film pretty much follows the formula established in the first two films with the addition of a fairly standard ploy in this sort of film, that our hero is wrongly accused and must work out who is behind what is going on. He seeks assistance from his estranged father (Nick Nolte) who has gone off the grid due to problems in his past.
There are some quality action sequences and the story moves along quickly entertaining the audience without challenging them with complexity. Fans of the series will definitely want to see this one and it is probably a touch better than the second one. The acting is fine, nobody embarrasses themselves, but this film is focused on the action.
A good addition to a series of crowd pleasing action films.
Note: Unfortunately the distributor only provided us with a standard definition copy of this film, so we have not been able to cover either the 4K or Blu-ray editions.
The video quality is good.
The feature is presented in a 2.40:1 aspect ratio which is the original aspect ratio. It is 16x9 enhanced.
The picture was quite clear and sharp throughout and the shadow detail was good. A standard DVD presentation with some noticeable motion blur at times.
The colour was very good with no issues to report.
There are subtitles in English for the hearing impaired which were clear and easy to read.
The audio quality is good.
This disc contains an English soundtrack in Dolby Digital 5.1 at 448 Kbps.
Dialogue was quite clear and easy to understand.
The music sounds pretty good considering the restrictions of lossy Dolby Digital.
The surround speakers and subwoofer were used for action sequences and tension but anyone used to lossless sound on Blu-ray or 4K is bound to be disappointed.
