Grade:
D+
Running Time: 
98 minutes

Oscar-Winner Mira Sorvino turns out a performance like all her others: bland and uninspired. How or why she won that Oscar is beyond me as she normally ruins a movie.

Quality:
Ok. The unimpressive and awkward 2.40:1 widescreen leaves a lot to the imagination and will leave most viewers more than annoyed. The sound claims a 5.1 uncompressed surround sound but I barely registered any sound out of my RL and RR speakers.

Bonus Features:
A Making-Of and a weak featurette, Nothing impressive.

Overall:
Depressingly enough, The Replacement Killers would be another fantastic action movie from Training Day-Director Antoine Fuqua but the blustering performance of Sorvino not only sours her character but ruins the movie itself.
