STUDIOCANAL announce a brand-new 4K restoration of John Irvin’s action-thriller RAW DEAL (1986). Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a disgraced agent, Mark Kaminski, who is promised reinstatement into the FBI if he successfully infiltrates the Chicago Mafia.
Dishonoured and forcibly retired from the FBI on grounds of excessive brutality, Mark Kaminski (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is demoted to being a Sheriff in a small town, where his wife heads straight for the bottle and his career goes nowhere. However, when the son of an old friend, Agent Harry Shannon (Darren McGavin), is killed whilst guarding a mob informant against the criminal outfit led by Luigi Patrovita (Sam Wanamaker), Kaminski is given a second chance.
Charged with infiltrating and single-handedly bringing down the mobsters from within without the protection of the FBI, Kaminski assumes a new identity and must resist the temptations of the mysterious Monique (Kathryn Harrold) and maintain his cover, with his eyes on the biggest prize of all – reinstatement and thus a return to the life that was taken away from him.
ABOUT THE RESTORATION –
The restoration was produced in 2022 by STUDIOCANAL using a combination of original 35mm elements scanned in 4K 16-bit. Scratches, physical damage and dust were erased frame by frame. The colour grading was completed at VDM Laboratory – France.
The disc will be released in October on 4K UHD and Blu Ray.
