Synopsis


Heartbreak Ridge
Having spent much of his directorial career emulating Don Siegel and John Ford, Clint Eastwood borrows a page from the catalogue of Sam Fuller in Heartbreak Ridge. Eastwood casts himself as an old-fashioned Marine Corps sergeant who is out of step with the new-fashioned military. He returns to his old outfit as a gunnery sergeant, where he runs afoul of 1980s-style superior officers to whom the words "Gung Ho" are foolish anachronisms. But through his tough tutelage, Eastwood's lackadaisical platoon is whipped into a first-rate fighting machine, favoring teamwork over such New Age gobbledygook as "self-fulfillment." Eastwood's men prove their mettle during the invasion of Grenada. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Firefox
Producer/director/star Clint Eastwood takes his sweet time getting Firefox started. Eastwood plays Mitchell Gant, a past-his-prime U.S. pilot, smuggled into the Soviet Union to steal a new Russian supersonic fighting plane. Fortunately the KGB men are as burnt out as Gant, enabling him to abscond with the plane with the greatest of ease. The rest of the film is a protracted chase, pitting Gant against scores of impersonal MIG pilots. Based on a novel by Craig Thomas. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Classic Clint

    Firefox - Better of the two in my opinion. Character driven story with action and special effects typical of an 80's movie. Cool plot with an unlikely hero. Heartbreak Ridge - Also character driven, but not enough development to make you care. I had a hard time relating to the characters for the dramatic/emotional content to have an impact. Video transfer and audio encode is satisfactory, but great value overall if you are a Clint Eastwood fan like me. I would recommend for Firefox alone.

    These are classic films. Truly some of the best films ever made, and with actors that we don't have many times these days. Full of action, and hers, that really put me in the action. I can relate to the stories and pure excitement that I will beat the odds. And get the girls type of films. I give these films a #1 in all catagories.

    I think that these were the best films that were ever made. Clint Eastwood is one of my favorite actors and is also a great and amazing actor & director as well. I really enjoyed all of the mystery, action, suspense, plotlines and cast of both these films and they were both of my favorite Clint Eastwood films as well.

    In FireFox, the government goes to a retiree to steal a plane from the Russian Government & get it out of Russia without getting caught. Heartbreak Ridge is about a survivor of a forgotten battle trying to survive in a Marine Corp that he feels he no longer fits into.

    I saw both of these movies when they were first released to video. As these are on BluRay, I assumed that both movies would be on the same disc, but there is a separate disc for each movie. Well worth the investment.

    Firefox was one of the first action flicks with Clint that wasn't a Western or War genre, great movie with good effects for the day. Heartbreak Ridge is just a great action drama.

    If your a Eastwood fan, you know both movies, but my DVD's picture were not up to par. Hoped that the Blu-Ray would fix this, and it did. I think it could be better, but such an improvement.
