DVD: As Blood Runs Deep

Eddie and Shane are two small town boys who spend most of their time on the road trying to earn a few bucks, morals don't come into it. They decide to rob a house in the affluent area of Hilliard but this results in the tragic death of a young boy. Homicide Detective Noah Cordin (Nick Stahl from Terminator 3) is assigned to the case and the investigation leads him back to his home town where a mixed reception awaits.

This feels like a tv movie, but a decent tv movie. Stahl is as dependable as ever and Jonathan Tucker (Hostage) delivers another intense performance. Small town politics involving the victim's mother also add an extra dimension to proceedings.

While this lacks the quality of bigger productions it's still a competent crime thriller that's based on true events.

As Blood Runs Deep (originally known as Meskada) is available on DVD in the UK from 5th September 2011.

  1. Doesn't get quite the passing grade huh? I think good movies should be independent from their mediums. There are jewels that went straight to TV-DVD because they were too hard to sell.

  2. I agree Ben and this is ok but nothing special.

  3. Sounds like it could be a decent flick, whenever I'm in the mood to watch some action, I might check this out.

  4. Not much action here Zena, it's more about the investigation.


Let me know what you think. I value all comments and fully intend to reply.
