"Caught In The Crossfire" is a good cop/bad cop action film set in Michigan. The story follows two police detectives (Rodriguez and Klein) who begin to investigate a suspicious crime, only to discover they have become the new targets of gang members and crooked cops. (Gary Reber)

The 1080p AVC picture exhibits limited dynamic range with weak blacks and overlit shadows. The photography is soft, with resolution limited to close-ups of facial features. Even so, the picture is softly rendered. The color palette is subdued as well, with undersaturated hues. Fleshtones are generally natural, though, not always. There appears to be a filter or film that permeates the imagery, which softens the picture. Overall, this is a mediocre picture experience. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is conventional, with production sound and ADR dialogue that in which spatial delineation is at times wanting, though, generally acceptable. The sound is monaural focused, with the music score providing the sense of spatial dimension in terms of a wide stereo spread and extension into the surrounds. Low-frequency energy is limited to the music score as well. Seldom are sound effects heard in the stereo channels. Overall, this is an unremarkable soundtrack, with a primarily undistinguished monaural focus. (Gary Reber)
