Some screenshots from the British Hollywood DVD release of Hired to Kill (1990)
Mercenary Frank Ryan (The Terminator's Brian Thompson in a rare leading role) is recruited along with seven beautiful women to rescue a rebel leader jailed on a Greek Island fortress. Ryan and his fellow female soldiers pose as a fashion designer and his models on tour to avoid any sort of suspicion from the Island's flamboyant dictator (Tommy's Oliver Reed). All I can say is if you manage to find a copy on any format, pick it up. You will not regret it.
Meanwhile, the British DVD has a surprisingly good Widescreen transfer that's properly anamorphic but has only one bonus feature, the film's trailer. The sound quality is on the same level as well.
