The Jack Bull [DVD] [1999]

John Badham's western The Jack Bull comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.33:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. There are no subtitles, but the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include biographies of the cast and crew. This is a fine release from HBO/Rysher that should be of interest to genreenthusiasts.

The Jack Bull
John Cusack plays Myrl Redding, a horse trader who locks horns with a rancher who has callously mistreated two of his horses, as well as their handler, a Crow Indian. When the law gives Myrl no justice, he is forced to take matters into his own hands, leading to a cycle of violence and chaos. The Jack Bull was written by Cusack's father, Dick, who also plays a small part as the jury foreman in the film. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
