It works on a basic level and achieves what it sets out to accomplish, which is admirable. The movie is built for viewers in search of raw action and will rightly turn away those looking for more dramatic depth. At least it's focused. Anchor Bay's Blu-ray release of Maximum Conviction features strong video and audio presentations. A few extras are included. Die-hard Action fans will enjoy a rental and maybe even a purchase when and if the price drops down below $10.
