Blu-ray Release: McCanick

September 30, 2014

McCanick Blu-ray

After premiering at TIFF last year, VVS Films is releasing McCanick on Blu-ray today.  Eugene McCanick (David Morse) is a tough cop just trying to get through his birthday, when he gets the news that Simon Weeks (Cory Monteith) has been released from prison, a street kid who he put away for murder seven years before.

The story starts out with multiple cliches, and the fractured narrative is sometimes needlessly confusing and doesn’t hold up well to close scrutiny, leading up to some ludicrous plot twists.  But director Josh C. Waller does allow a fair bit of tension to build up throughout McCanick, thanks to the good performances from David Morse and Cory Monteith, who completed the film before his tragic death.  Fans of the actor will want to check this one out for his final role.

The Blu-ray includes deleted scenes and a “behind the scenes” featurette.

McCanick is 96 minutes and rated 14A.
