Eureka Classics Get ‘Gritty’ With The Dogs Of War On Blu-Ray

Eureka Entertainment to release THE DOGS OF WAR, John Irvin’s gritty action-thriller starring Christopher Walken and Tom Berenger, for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, as part of the Eureka Classics range, from 14 October 2019. The first print-run will feature a Limited Edition Collectors Booklet.

Academy Award® winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter, Pulp Fiction) is a brutal mercenary who must fight the ultimate battle – against his own conscience – in this powerful action thriller with a heart-thumping tempo. The Dogs of War is a spectacular adventure that brilliantly captures the horror – and glory – of war.

Jamie Shannon (Walken) is a cynical warrior-for-hire who only ever feels truly alive in the heat of battle, and now he’s about to take on the most challenging assignment of his career: to invade a corrupt African dictatorship and shift control to the “puppet” of a powerful British corporation. To prepare, Shannon masterfully trains and equips a squad of deadly mercenaries with the latest and most destructive tactics and military hardware. But as their explosive assault begins, Shannon finds himself embroiled in an internal conflict of his own. Will this be his greatest triumph, or has he sold his soul along with his battle expertise?

Praised on release for its dialogue, action, and characters, The Dogs of War is a gritty masterpiece, and one of the best war movies of its era. Eureka Classics is proud to present John Irvin’s feature debut on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK
