5 Film Collection Action Pack

This five-disc collection of action films contains three enjoyable action flicks and a pair of clunkers for a fairly reasonable price. The Last Boy Scout (an enjoyable collaboration between writer Shane Black and director Tony Scott) teams seedy private eye (Bruce Willis) and former football star (Damon Wayans) in a murder investigation. Under Siege is one of Steven Seagal's better films casting him as a former Navy SEAL demoted to a cook in the right place at the right time when terrorists (led by Tommy Lee Jones) attack his ship. Tango & Cash is the ridiculous, but fun, pairing of Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell as rival super cops forced to work together after they are framed for murder.

The lesser of the group are Next to Kin (starring Patrick Swayze as a hillbilly searching for a murderer) and Unknown (starring Liam Neeson as a car-crash victim confused why someone has stolen his life - read the full review). As with most of these collections there isn't much in the way of extras.

[Warner Bros., $18.94]
