“A taut, bloody slice of ‘80s action just waiting for re-discovery.” – twitch.com
A cinematic version of the O. Henry story “The Ransom At Red Chief, ” this “suspenseful, funny, and insightful thriller…should please people with a taste for something different and subversive” (TV Guide)!
Cohen and Tate are two mafia hit men who don't exactly hit it off. Cohen (Roy Scheider, Jaws) is an old pro, a cold-blooded killer who is all business. Tate (Adam Baldwin, Chuck) is a young hothead who kills for fun. Together they kidnap nine-year-old Travis Knight (Harley Cross, The Believers), an eyewitness to a recent mob rub-out. Now, they've got 24 hours to deliver him to Houston for interrogation and elimination. Realizing their mutual hatred is his only hope, Travis plays this lethal odd couple against one another. But when their volatile words explode into a fiery gun battle, he's caught in the crossfire.
Why We Love It
“This Blu-ray offers very good video and audio and nice supplementary features, and comes Recommended.” – Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-ray.com
“Cohen And Tate holds up well, a strong and suspenseful thriller with a great performance from Scheider that helps to offset Adam Baldwin's one note caricature. There's some style here, some good scenes of tension and a few surprisingly grim moments. Shout! Factory's Blu-ray debut for the film is a good one, offering the movie up in good shape and with some welcome extra features as well. Recommended.” – Ian Jane, DVD Talk
