Here at Nightmare Nostalgia, we’re all about those retro titles getting the sometimes much needed, HD treatment. Well, thanks to MVD Entertainment and its launched MVD Rewind collection we get not just any ole’ special edition but THEE definitive edition of BLACK EAGLE.
Per the press release, this 80’s action classic includes two versions of the film and over two hours of additional material including deleted scenes and all-new interviews produced exclusively for this release. Housed in a limited edition “retro style” slipcover with the film’s original 80’s artwork, the slip will only be available on the first pressing and once MVD runs out… it’s gone (the slipcover… not the release).
SYNOPSIS: After an F-11 gets shot down over the Mediterranean Sea, The U.S. government cannot afford to lose the top-secret laser tracking device that was on board. But unfortunately, the KGB team lead by the infamous Andrei (Jean-Claude Van Damme, The Expendables 2, Universal Soldier) are beating the CIA in the race to find it. The CIA has no choice but to call in their best man, master martial-artist Ken Tani (Sho Kosugi, Ninja Assassin, Revenge of the Ninja), code name… BLACK EAGLE. In response, the KGB resorts to an all-out war, with powerful Andrei matching Ken blow for blow. From legendary action director Eric Karson (The Octagon), Black Eagle also stars Doran Clark (The Warriors), Bruce French (Jurassic Park III) and William Bassett (House of 1000 Corpses).
