By: John M Jerva

It’s time to refresh the classic action section of your home video collection as Lionsgate’s Vestron Collector’s Series is ready to unleash Walter Hill’s 1987 classic Extreme Prejudice on special edition Blu-Ray.

Nick Nolte stars in the violent modern day western as an old school Texas Ranger who goes up against an elite unit of supposed dead soldiers and a childhood friend who is now a ruthless drug kingpin. An all-star cast leads the way for bullet riddled action excellence so check out the official box cover art below!

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS

Directed by the legendary Walter Hill, this gritty, modern Western is regarded as a classic and features an all-star cast with Nick Nolte, Powers Boothe, Maria Conchita Alonso, Rip Torn, and Michael Ironside. Lean, mean Texas Ranger Jack Benteen (Nolte) locks horns with a former friend, Cash Bailey (Boothe), now a ruthless drug kingpin. Though they’re on opposite sides of the law, they share a love interest in the sensual Sarita (Alonso). When a crew of rogue soldiers descends upon the border town for an off-the-books mission, all roads lead to a bloody, to-the-death showdown, as loyalties shift and the lines between good and evil are blurred.

This edition comes locked and loaded with a host of special features including interviews and commentary. Check out the full list of extras below!

This has always been one of my favorite 80’s action movies with Nolte at his bad ass best. The bullet riddled finale alone is worth the price of admission and this latest edition is a must have for serious collectors looking to upgrade the firepower in their collection.
