In "An Eye For An Eye: The Blind Swordsman," after stumbling into the aftermath of a brutal attack that resulted in an innocent man' murder, a highly trained and exceptionally deadly swordsman temporarily sets aside life as a bounty hunter to investigate. As the truth behind the tragedy comes to light, the former killer-for-hire decides to hunt down his prey for an entirely different reason: rage. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the trailer and upfront previews.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a VIZIO Quantum X P85QX-JI UHD/HDR display, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K Digital Intermediate. The picture exhibits generally natural imagery. Settings are realistic as well as the attire worn by the people, Flesh tones are naturally rendered. Contrast is good with deep black levels, revealing shadows, and effective lighting and daylight illumination. Resolution is excellent with fine detail exhibited throughout in environmental an object textures, clothing and facial features. This is a satisfying visual experience that is well crated. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is rich in atmospherics and action sound effects such as the intense sword fighting scenes. Atmospherics nicely define the various locations and settings. The music score is well recorded with a wide soundstage and aggressive surround presence. Foley sound effects are excellent. Dialogue is largely ADR produced and sounds forward. Overall, fidelity is excellent as well as the holosonic® soundfield envelopment. (Gary Reber)
