In Supremacy, recently paroled white supremacist Tully (Anderson) and his girlfriend (Olivieri) find themselves pursued by a cop on Tully's first night out of jail. After killing the cop, the couple flee the scene and, in desperate need of a place to hide, resort to invading the home of an unsuspecting family, taking them hostage. Mr. Walker (Glover), an ex-con and the patriarch of the captured family, makes a last-ditch attempt to save his relatives by using his understanding of the racist mind to manipulate his volatile captors. Will it be enough to keep his family alive? (Gary Reber)

Special features include a behind-the-scene featurette (HD 08:34), a trailer, and upfront previews

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture is raw in tone, with a gritty presence. The scenes within Mr. Walker's house are dark, due to the nighttime setting and low interior lighting. The color palette is natural with excellent fleshtones. The imagery exhibits effective realism. Black levels are never pushed to extremes, and shadow delineation is revealing. The mooring scenes are naturally bright with excellent contrast. Resolution exhibits fine detail, particularly in facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture, which heightens the tense realism. Overall, while a darkened setting, the picture looks good and effectively suited to the hostage situation. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is effectively tense, with a haunting music score that extends from the soundstage to the surrounds that provides moments of envelopment. Atmospherics and sound effects, such as a police helicopter circling in the sky nearby the house of the taken hostages, enhance the sense of realism. While the focus is frontal, with good directional sonics, the soundtrack is enveloping during segments of tension and intensified with deep .1 LFE bass. Dialogue is consistently intelligible with excellent spatial integration. This is an eerie soundtrack that plays well against the intensity of the storytelling. (Gary Reber)
