In "Your Lucky Day," after a dispute over a winning lottery ticket turns into a deadly hostage situation, the witnesses must decide exactly how far they'll go and how much blood they're willing to spill for a cut of the $156 million. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the trailer and upfront previews.

The 2.39:1:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a VIZIO Quantum X P85QX-JI UHD/HDR display, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K Digital Intermediate. Picture production is low budget but the imagery is decent with natural flesh tones. The store setting appears realistic as do locations outside. Contrast is compressed with mediocre black snd shadow levels, and low light intensities. Resolution is decent with detail exhibited in facial features, beards and hair. Overall this is a riveting twisted crime thriller picture that satisfies. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with strong atmospherics such as a rain storm and disturbances associated with a robbery. Atmospherics sound realistic as do sound effects such as gunfire, train drop barrier, train roaring on tracks and store alarm. The music is a background sound element but extends aggressively o the surrounds. Deep bass is associated with the train and music. Dialogue sounds generally well integrated spatially. Overall, this is a satisfyingly realistic soundtrack that works well for the storytelling. (Gary Reber)
