About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Michael J. Fox and James Woods in a classic film. Discovered it's insanely expensive anywhere else, yet somehow HMV's exclusive version is cheaper! Pricing in the mid 20s used or for a new Region A import via Amazon.

The Hard Way (hmv Exclusive) - Japanese Artwork Series #6 Limited Edition Steelbook

Limited to 1200 copies

Showcasing original Japanese theatrical artwork, this essential collection perfectly blends the exuberant style of the Far East with the iconic art of Hollywood. Each release comes with a replica chirashi' mini-poster as would have been used to promote the film in Japanese cinemas, alongside the original English Language disc content.

Michael J. Fox and James Woods star in this thrilling action-adventure comedy from director John Badham. Nick Lang (Fox) is a popular movie star who desperately wants to break out of his ""nice guy"" screen image. Believing he'll land a role as a tough homicide detective if he can hang out with the real thing, Lang leaves Hollywood to spend a few weeks on the streets of New York with detective John Moss (Woods). A gritty no-nonsense cop on the trail of a ruthless serial killer, the last thing Moss needs is an annoying sidekick. But his boss - a fan of Nick Lang's movies - insists, and Moss must find ways to get Lang out of his hair while pursuing the murderer. It's nonstop action and laughs that lead to a breath-taking showdown in Times Square as Lang and Moss finally learn to get along... the hard way.

    I’m 41 and I have never seen, nor heard of this film. BTTF and Teen wolf are amongst my fave films ever.

    This is happening. Maybe won’t buy the fancy version though, in case rose tinted glasses don’t work retrospectively.
    The bizarre thing is the fancy version is the cheapest.

    Amazon UK blu-ray out of stock
    Amazon UK import blu-ray is £25
    HMV's Steelbook is £14

    Its crazy really. Even second hand is asking for £25 outside a few ebay sellers at £15 . (edited)

    If I knew it was going to be £25+ on Amazon before I would've bought this when it was in the HMV FILM50 50% discount weeks ago

    Great scene:

    Not knocking the film or deal but no way these Japanese artwork steelbooks are as Limited Edition as they say - it’s been available for nearly 2 years and they still haven’t sold 1200 copies? Back To The Future is the same - only 2000 copies - but still available

    ...it was half this price a few months ago on HMV's site with a promo, and now it's deal?
    Yep. It was down to £6.99 when the FILM50 discount was a thing.
    Now they've removed almost everything in the offer.
    So outside this £13.99 if you find it you're looking at £25.

    It's a deal (unfortunately.) (edited)

    I saw this on bbc, heavily edited and sanitised and loved it. Fun family comedy
    Then I saw the dvd and found it a bit if a shock in places - (same with Leon)
    Has anyone seen this version?
    Not yet. Waiting for it to arrive. I tried checking the site 'movie censorship' and no result for it.
    If there's a family vs adult version from the 15 cert I think it will be the latter for better or worse.

    If you don't know the site here's a random example of why it's informative. (edited)
