RT on DVD: New In Town vs. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus!

It's a direct-to-DVD kind of week. Embrace it!

Killshot -- N/A




After being notoriously shuffled around the release slate for the last three years (it was originally set to debut in theaters in March 2006), Killshot finally finds an audience this week on DVD. Based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name, the crime thriller follows a couple (Diane Lane and Thomas Jane) on the run from an assassin (Mickey Rourke) and his deranged side-kick (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) after the Witness Protection Program fails to protect them; Rosario Dawson and Hal Holbrook co-star. Directed by John Madden (the one that earned a Best Director nod for Shakespeare in Love, not the NFL commentator), Killshot is messy, but watchable, especially for Rourke's performance as Blackbird, a Native American hit man who lives by his own code of morals.
