'Eye See You: Special Edition' [Blu-ray]
(Sylvester Stallone, Tom Berenger, Kris Kristofferson, Jeffrey Wright, Charles Dutton, et al / Blu-ray / NR / (2002) 2020 / MVD Visual)

Overview: A brutal serial killer is targeting cops, and detective Jake Malloy is on the warpath. But now the killer is making it personal, and this dedicated agent is twisted in an emotional nightmare.

Time is running out, and so are the options, as Malloy engages in an extreme game of cat-and-mouse with a killer who won't be stopped.

Blu-ray Verdict: 'Eye See You' (2002) is a cold, raw actioner featuring superstar Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Rambo), who stars as lead detective, Jake Malloy, being stalked by a serial killer, who is asked to check into a clinic treating law enforcement officials who can't face their jobs.

This action packed thriller from director Jim Gillespie features and all-star supporting cast that includes Tom Berenger, Charles Dutton, Sean Patrick Flanery, Robert Patrick, Courtney B. Vance, Jeffrey Wright, Dina Meyer, Stephen Lang and Kris Kristofferson.

In a movie that was always called 'Detox' until it was shelved by Universal for 4 years and then thrown straight out onto DVD thereafter, what we get is a plain and simple whodunnit that also contains a fair few shock and awe moments too.

"It's very simple why 'Detox' landed in limbo," Stallone himself has since revealed. "A film is a very delicate creature. Any adverse publicity or internal shake-up can upset the perception of - and studio confidence in - a feature."

"For some unknown reason the original producer pulled out and right away the film was considered damaged goods; by the time we ended filming there was trouble brewing on the set because of overages and creative concerns between the director and the studio."

"The studio let it sit on the shelf for many months and after over a year it was decided to do a re-shoot. We screened it, it tested okay, Ron Howard was involved with overseeing some of the post-production - but the movie had the smell of death about it."

"Actually, if you looked up, you could see celluloid buzzards circling as we lay there dying on the distributor's floor!"

Anyway, back to the movie and a serial killer who was stopped from murdering prostitutes by a determined Federal Agent Jack Molloy (Stallone), takes up killing policemen instead, just to get under Agent Molloy's skin.

The killer goes as far as murdering his live-in girlfriend Mary, Dina Meyer, as Jack is forced to listen in on the phone helplessly and being unable to save her drives him to have a nervous breakdown.

Becoming an alcoholic and suicidal Molloy finally agrees to be sent to a Detox center in the wilds of Wyoming at an old underground command post converted into a hospital for burned-out and severely depressed law enforcement officers.

Molloy feeling that he'll get help for his mental illness as well as much needed rest at the center soon realizes that the killer who made his life hell and put him there in the first place is there himself impersonating a burnt out police officer!

The movie keep the audience guessing to who the killer is as he knocks off the policemen at the center as well as the attendants that work there one by one.

It's true that 'Eye See You' is a little unconvincing in certain aspects of how things play out, especially like when the killer is finally revealed towards the end of the film you almost forgot what the movie was all about in the first place to really care!

In closing, tensions run high in the center as the temperature drops below zero and Malloy and the other 9 patients struggle to adapt to life without alcohol (before they get bumped off, of course), which means this is a pretty decent wet Sunday afternoon movie.
