Sound and Vision:
Gun dates from 1997, was made for TV and the image quality reflects this. The amount of detail is a bit low and, there’s grain here and there and the overall look is dated.
The 2.0 sound has clear dialogues but that’s about all you can say about it.
Gun is a series of six movies created by well-known directors and a rather famous cast (for TV that is). It’s easy to have high expectations if you hear the names of the people involved but unfortunately the movie do not live up to the current standards. Things are a bit too oldfashioned for that, the plots are simplistic and although the acting isn’t bad, the tone of the stories is patronising making them rather boring.
While Gun could have been great it’s a crime version of 7th Heaven when compared to modern-day TV shows like The Shield.
