The dvd is titled, 'Deadly Justice', what a jip


There's nothing deadly about this movie. The back of the DVD cover gives the premise of the movie as a man who stops at nothing at bringing his attackers to justice. What a joke. He identifies ONE in a police lineup, that's it.

This movie was freaking hilarious, definite Mystery Science Theater 3000 fare. Tremendous stuff.

DVD title: Deadly Justice

3 names in 20 years, just marketing gimmicks to trick people

Yes "trick" being the operative word. Anyone picking up the DVD Deadly Justice will have no idea that the movie's about male-on-male rape, and will get a shock watching it at their frat party on a Saturday night.

Our library got a copy a couple months ago. I figured it'd get checked out a couple times, and then be forgotten, it's been checked out every single week since it hit the new movie shelf.

Er, no, you're wrong. Beck does more than that. Watch the takedown at the end of the movie again

No, it wasn't hilarious---it was a serious examination of what happens when a stereotypical tough guy become a victim of rape, and how society treats him because of that. Nothing funny about the assault scene. I don't know why you're trying to claim that it's something that it's not.

I think Dingus needs to be in Beck's position and come back and say it's funny. That's usually what it does take, as the movie shows.

I remember the betamax cover said something about how Beck wouldn't take his assault sitting down.

It kept being put with drug movies instead of drama because the video clerk heard it was about two guys trying get some dude's crack.

You hate Congress but every election you re-elect YOUR "guy" and wonder why things never change!
