200 MPH, Blood Out, Knockout, Student Services, Testees

New DVD releases Tuesday, April 26


200 MPH

After his older brother is killed while illegal street racing, an amateur racer dives vengefully into the world of … illegal street racing. So, essentially, it’s The Fast & The Furious with even dumber characters and no budget. (The Asylum)

Blood Out
Luke Goss, 50 Cent and Val Kilmer(!) star in the story of a small-town sheriff out to avenge the death of his brother—a theme this week? Also starring Vinnie Jones and AnnaLynne McCord as Thug and Blonde ’Ho, respectively. (Lionsgate)

A retired heavyweight boxer (Stone Cold Steve Austin) trains a rookie to take down a new ring champ who’s being a total dick. So, essentially, it’s The Last Dragon with even dumber characters and no cool music. (Phase 4)

Student Services
A broke French college student (Deborah Francois) desperate to make money begins prostituting herself to a creepy 50-something dude she met through an Internet ad. Apparently, they haven’t cleaned up Craigslist France. (IFC Films)

Testees: The Complete Series
The canceled 2008 FX series about slacker buds who volunteer to be drug-test subjects at a lab that manufactures questionable products with hilarious side effects, like paralysis and premature ejaculation. Not concurrent. (E1)
