Johnny Handsome Blu in July

Source: Blu-ray.com

Remember when Mickey Rourke's face hadn't been obliterated by a boxing career?

Yeah, I know it has been awhile, but in 1989 his nose still hadn't been broken and he was in a gangster revenge flick called Johnny Handsome. He played the titular role Johnny, and consequently was handsome. Don't believe me? Well, you can see it for yourself on July 27th.

But Johnny wasn't always handsome; in fact he was a grotesquely deformed bank robber that got caught. While in prison though he gets goes through rehabilitation for a chance at a new life and a new face (Probably, courtesy of our tax dollars ...) and leaves the joint a changed man in a more literal sense than most. Once he is back out on the streets of New Orleans though Johnny continues with his plot for revenge against those that got him nabbed in the first place while trying to hide his true intentions from a detective, Morgan Freeman; that thinks a new face won't be enough to kill off old habits.

Extras Include:

  • Noir In Nawlins: In-depth look at the cinematography of Johnny Handsome
