A staple of video stores and cable TV throughout the 1990s, director James Glickenhaus’ McBAIN remains a favorite of action movie fans everywhere thanks to its terrific cast (led by Oscar-winner Christopher Walken), spectacular stunts and over-the-top action. One of the most demanded titles in Synapse Films’ history, MCBAIN finally arrives on Blu-ray this July to make this the most explosive summer ever for action fans everywhere!
When prisoner of war Robert McBain (Academy Award winner Christopher Walken, The Deer Hunter) is rescued in the jungles of North Vietnam by a group of Rangers, he expresses his thanks and gratitude. The leader of the Rangers, Santos (Chick Vennera), takes out a $100 bill, tears it in two, gives half to McBain and says, “If the other half of this bill ever finds you, you can pay me back.”
Eighteen years later, Santos is killed in Colombia while leading a fight against drug lords and corrupt politicians. His sister, Christina (Maria Conchita Alonso, Predator 2, The Running Man) goes to New York with the other half of the bill and seeks out McBain to enlist his help in overthrowing the Colombian regime. With the surviving ex-Rangers from his Vietnam rescue, including Michael Ironside (Total Recall, Top Gun) and Steve James (The Exterminator, The Soldier), McBain’s team travels to Colombia to break the power of the drug lords and avenge Santos’ death.
Directed by genre favorite James Glickenhaus (The Exterminator, Shakedown, Slaughter of the Innocents), McBain delivers “a macho action fantasy… spectacular mayhem that action audiences expect.” (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times)
