Lionsgate: WILD CARD [DVD/BLU-RAY]


Legendary action star Jason Statham (The Expendables franchise, Transporter franchise) headlines the action-packed thriller Wild Card, showing its hand on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on March 31st from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film is currently available via On Demand. An extended version of the film, featuring 10 additional minutes not previously seen will also be available on Digital HD on the same date.  Featuring an all-star cast including Michael Angarano (Cinemax’s “The Knick”), Milo Ventimiglia (TV’s “Heroes”), Dominik García-Lorido (STARZ’s “Magic City”), Anne Heche (HBO’s “Hung”), Sofia Vergara (TV’s “Modern Family”), Max Casella (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) and Jason Alexander (TV’s “Seinfeld”), with Hope Davis (TV’s “Allegiance”) and Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games franchise), Wild Card is “Statham’s coolest action flick since The Transporter” (Comingsoon.net).

Nick Wild (Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a sadistic thug beats his friend, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes...and this time, it's all or nothing. 


From a screenplay by two-time Academy Award® winner* William Goldman, based on his novel, Heat, the Wild Card Blu-ray and DVD are packed with bonus features including an exploration of the film’s character ensemble and the ways in which Las Vegas defines them, an evolution of the Wild Card screenplay and a director’s commentary with Simon West (The Expendables 2).  


Okay I watched it, it was different... I like my STATHAM a killing machine and don't get me wrong he was... it was just the messy rest of the film. There is a great plot wanting to happen, it just never forms into anything of substance. Yes, look at all the stars in this film... for the minute or two they actually have any screen time.

He's made quite a career of action hero for himself.
