|Exclusively from Paramount Home Entertainment comes two action-packed films rendered in stunning high definition! This deluxe Blu-ray Disc 2-pack includes THE ITALIAN JOB and SHOOTER.|
THE ITALIAN JOB: The plan was flawless. The execution was perfect. Charlie Croker pulled off the crime of a lifetime. The one thing that he didn't plan on was being double-crossed. Now he wants more than the job's payoff...he wants payback. Mark Wahlberg is electrifying as Croker in this "fast and furious action-adventure" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times). Along with a drop-dead gorgeous safecracker (Charlize Theron), Croker and his team take off to re-steal the loot and end up in a pulse-pounding, pedal-to-the-metal chase that careens up, down and below the streets of Los Angeles. With an ensemble all-star cast that also includes Edward Norton, Seth Green, Jason Statham, Mos Def, Franky G, and Donald Sutherland, THE ITALIAN JOB is "Hot!" (Leonard Maltin, Hot Ticket)
SHOOTER: Get ready for edge-of-your-seat thrills as Mark Wahlberg ignites the screen in his most compelling role yet: the SHOOTER. When respected former Marine scout sniper Bob Lee Swagger (Wahlberg) is pressed into service to stop an assassination attempt against the President, the unthinkable occurs: he's double-crossed and framed for the attempt. Determined to prove his innocence, the rogue shooter is now in a high-tension race from every law enforcement agency in the country and a shadowy organization that wants him dead. From Training Day director Antoine Fuqua comes a gripping film co-starring Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon) and Michael Pena (World Trade Center). Joel Siegel of Good Morning America proclaims that SHOOTER is a "thriller...with a ton of white-knuckle action."
