Officer Down Featuring Soulja Boy Is Coming To Blu-ray In January

Dirty cops have been explored on the big screen and the small screen for many years, but a life and death redemptive adventure for a dirty cop is a bit scarcer. If you have no idea what movie I’m describing, don’t worry—it’s because it hasn’t hit theaters yet. The Anchor Bay flick, Officer Down, is getting a limited theatrical engagement on January 18. If you don’t live anywhere near where it will be playing, the flick will hit Blu-ray and DVD on January 22.

Officer Down looks into the fallout of a dirty cop who, after a near-death experience, decides he may not want to be so dirty after all. When a higher up at the police department decides to try to contain the strange situation, action, deception, and a strip club comes into play. Stephen Dorff stars in the flick, which also features James Woods, AnnaLynne McCord, and Bones’ David Boreanaz. Oh yeah, and Soulja Boy gets his first acting credit in this flick, which I’m sure is a step up from hearing him rap about “superman[ing]” some hoes.

There are no bonus features currently listed with the release, and if I had to take a stab in the dark, I’d guess there won’t be any coming. The good news is that Officer Down is more likely to be a movie a person would purchase on a whim, for better or for worse, and Anchor Bay seems to know that. Thus, neither the Blu-ray or DVD will run very expensively, with Blu-ray copies retailing for $29.99 and DVD copies for $24.99, although I daresay this may be one to rent first, if possible, unless you just love Boreanaz that much.
