eâ€™s hard to love, but even harder to killâ€¦ Hungâ€™s Thomas Jane (The Mist, The Punisher) stars as the tough-as-nails private dick Malone in the explosive new thriller, GIVE â€˜EM HELL MALONE, a gritty flick from Aussie director Russell Mulcahy. Expertly blending old-school pulp noir with bullet-riddled action, GIVE â€˜EM HELL MALONE will make its U.S. debut on both DVD and Blu-Ray ($24.98srp each) only from National Entertainment Media.
Give â€˜Em Hell Malone follows the titular character as he comes into possession of a mysterious suitcase said to contain the â€œmeaning of loveâ€. The case is of great interest to a local mob boss, and he dispatches a trio of eccentric â€“ and deadly â€“ enforcers, Boulder (Rhames, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, Day of the Dead), pyromaniac Matchstick (Hutchinson) and female assassin Mauler (Chris Yen) to take possession of it. What they didnâ€™t anticipate was Maloneâ€™s resolve â€“ and his Mateba autorevolver. As with all good noir films, tangled up in the mix is a bombshell femme fatale, played by the positively steamy Elsa Pataky (Giallo) who may prove more trouble than sheâ€™s worth. As the edgy plot plays out, things, of course, arenâ€™t as clear cut as they seem and soon the film overflows with betrayal, blood and violence.
A 2009 production, GIVE â€˜EM HELL MALONE is presented in 16 x 9 widescreen with English SDH for the deaf and hard of hearing, as well as Spanish subtitles. The DVD features 5.1 Surround/2.0 Dolby Digital and the Blu-ray features 5.1 Surround Sound/DTS-HD Master Audio.
