US Blu-ray review
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Riot-Blu- ... 95/#Review
Video Quality
Riot's 1080p transfer impresses, particularly for a lower budget DTV title. The digital source photography captures plenty of intimate details. Skin textures are particularly revealing -- pores, tattoos, wrinkles -- but so too are grimy cinder block walls, worn prison jump suits, and other little background and accentuating details that enjoy pinpoint clarity across the board. Colors are satisfying. The most prominent color in the movie is orange by way of the prison uniform. The orange is striking, particularly standing out against an otherwise dreary color scheme within prison walls and other assorted backgrounds that are cobbled together of bland, pedestrian shades. Various shots outside of the prison yield a satisfying, but unremarkable, color scheme and presentation. Skin tones and black levels raise no alarms. Noise ranges from mild to moderate and aliasing can be severe, particularly in city exterior shots that appear to be digitally crafted rather than photographed in real life.

Audio Quality
Riot features a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack that's always finding a means of engaging the surrounds and providing plenty of listening entertainment. For a relatively small movie, the sound design proves rather involved, even if it's just in the recreation of various buzzing alarms, slamming prison cell doors, and other environment-specific details. Action scenes are likewise appropriately chaotic, with crashes, punches, smashes, screams, and general action din altogether yielding an engaging experience that makes the job of transforming the listening area into the prison relatively simple. Music is fine, enjoying quality spacing along the front. Mild surround support is apparent, and the low end is suitably potent. Dialogue is clear and accurate, enjoying excellent prioritization and natural center placement. A few lines emanate from the sides in an effort to engender better spatial awareness.

Special Features and Extras n/a
Riot contains no supplemental content. A voucher for a UV/iTunes digital copy is included with purchase.

Finally got around to seeing this one. I have no issues with it and while it's no Escape Plan, it's definitely far more shameless and surprisingly classier than say other franchises such as Half Past Dead, Escape Plan or Bloodfist. Yes, Dolph isn't the main character but he still has an intriguing role to tackle, the action never lets up and the film is never dull.

Just saw it in order to fill my Dolph filmography gaps that have accrued over the last years. I had never noticed Matthew Reese before. I liked him, it was a good performance. Not a must-see movie though. :wink:
