“Under Fire” Gets New Blu-ray Release From Eureka Entertainment

Eureka Entertainment’s continuing celebration of classic and cult cinema adds another gem to its limited edition Blu-ray collection with political thriller Under Fire starring Nick Nolte, Gene Hackman and Joanna Cassidy.

Sporting some excellent added features including a limited edition collector’s booklet with new writing by author Scott Harrison and two audio commentaries including one with director Roger Spottiswoode, assistant editor Paul Seydor and photo-journalist Matthew Naythons, and film historian Nick Redman, Under Fire gets the home video release it deserves.

The Oscar-nominated political thriller, which Time Out critic Geoff Andrew said on its release was a thriller with “a head, a heart, and muscle”, features one of Nick Nolte’s best performances alongside a stellar Joanna Cassidy and support from the always brilliant Gene Hackman, comes to UK Blu-ray for the first time on June 17, 2019. Only the first 2,000 copies will include the limited edition booklet.

Nolte plays Russel Price, a gutsy photo-journalist who gets caught between his love for reporter Claire Stryder (Cassidy) and his friendship with her husband, Alex Grazier (Hackman). Immersing himself in the war between rebels and the government during the Nicaraguan revolution, Price discovers he’s lost his objectivity as the fighting takes on a personal turn.
