Product Description

GORDON'S WAR: Gordon (Paul Winfield, The Terminator) spent four years in Vietnam as a Green Beret fighting someone else's battle . . . now he's come back home to fight his own. He returns to a Harlem that has changed: drugs and prostitution have taken over his neighborhood, and his wife even overdosed from drugs. Along with his former army buddies, he takes on the Mob to wipe out the corruption that has taken over the city. Also starring Carl Lee (Superfly), Tony King (Bucktown) and singer Grace Jones (A View To A Kill). Directed by Ossie Davis (Cotton Comes To Harlem).

OFF LIMITS: Being a cop is tough. But in war-torn Saigon in 1968, being a cop is crazy. Someone is brutally murdering Vietnamese prostitutes with children by American fathers, and plainclothes military cops Sgt. Buck McGriff (Willem Dafoe, Platoon) and Sgt. Albaby Perkins (Gregory Hines, The Cotton Club) are put on the case that no one wants solved. But things are never what they seem in 'Nam, including a novice nun (Amanda Pays), a deranged colonel (Scott Glenn) and a twisted trail of clues that takes McGriff and Perkins from back alleys to battlefields in search of a serial killer who's ready to make them the next victims. Fred Ward, Keith David and David Alan Grier costar in this explosive action thriller.

3.0 out of 5 stars Off Limits is a perfect movie for anyone scouring late night TV July 13 2011
By DVD Verdict - Published on Amazon.com
Judge Paul Pritchard, DVD Verdict -- "With only a few minutes allocated to setting up the story, Gordon's War gets into top gear practically from the off, as Gordon (Paul Winfield) and his crew tackle the drug peddling scum of Harlem corner by corner. It doesn't matter that Gordon is able to set up his operation with little in the way of available resources; the viewer is simply asked to just accept that he has a kickass command post with all kinds of surveillance kit ready to go. The film is hardly an original work, but succeeds by virtue of the craftsmanship that has gone into the film. Victor J. Kemper's cinematography lends the film a gritty aesthetic that in many ways helps paper over the screenplays lack of depth. Likewise, the cast, particularly Paul and Gilbert Lewis, deliver authentic performances that never leave the viewer in any doubt as to how badass these guys are. If Off Limits shares any similarity with Gordon's War, its in the lackluster and rather formulaic plot. Set against the backdrop of war, and dealing with a race-related series of murders, Off Limits has much potential, but not once does it use its setting to its advantage. Rather, writer/director Christopher Crowe (Last of the Mohicans) seems content to put the emphasis on the performances of his cast. Gregory Hines and Willem Dafoe prove a good combination, but stealing the film from under their noses is Scott Glenn (Sucker Punch), as an out-of-his-mind suspect. His role may be small, but it is memorable for Glenn's near-psychotic reading of the role. Also offering more than able support is Fred Ward (Tremors). These actors do well to keep the viewers attention away from the repetitive plot. Both films are presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic transfers. Gordon's War is generally good, taking into account the film's age and budget. There's a mild level of grain, and occasional signs of damage. Otherwise it's reasonably sharp, with natural colors and good black levels. Off Limits shows signs of damage, with grain and lack of fine detail evident throughout. Each film comes with a commentary track, the first features cinematographer Victor J. Kemper and actor Tony King, who make a surprisingly good combination. The second featuring director Crowe and Dafoe. Also included are a selection of trailers and TV spots."

3.0 out of 5 stars Gordon's War/Off Limits (Double Feature) Dec 21 2011
By caddguy - Published on Amazon.com

I have seen the movie, 'Off Limits" probably 10 times since it's release, but I didn't own it until just recently when I purchased it as part of a "Double Feature" from Amazon.com. The movie is great, as usual, except I notice that a few parts,(scenes), of the movie are missing. I understand, now, why the price is right to own this movie. I assume it was shortened to fit the DVD.
I don't remember the movie being advertised as being cut. When I purchase a movie, I expect it to be the "ENTIRE" movie. I am disapointed, but I will be careful in the future.
I got fooled once, but it won't happen again.
