Dead Heat [DVD] [2001]

Mark Malone's drama about brothers, criminals, and horse racing, Dead Heat, comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is impressively rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by the director, a second commentary track recorded by the film's producers, and a trailer. Trimark has done a commendable job loading up the disc for this little seen film with good extras as well as solid picture and sound quality.

Dead Heat
Retired Boston policeman Pally (Kiefer Sutherland) finds himself mired in murder, mobsters, and misfired romance when he well-meaningly agrees to help his stepbrother, Ray (Anthony LaPaglia), finance a long-shot racehorse. A mob kingpin (Daniel Benzali) has his eyes on the nag as well, and he exploits a debt by a lowlife jockey (Lothaire Bluteau) to take control of the horse. Naturally, it all comes down to the Big Race, and it seems no matter where the horse finishes, Pally's going to be a loser. ~ Buzz McClain, Rovi
