RECORDED DELIVERY; A critical guide to the week's videos
Metro (18) Buena Vista, rental, 12 Aug. All the usual cliches spill from this bad-to-average crime thriller. An over made-up Eddie Murphy gets serious as a negotiator whose job it is to cajole gunmen into releasing their victims without bloodshed. He inevitably becomes emotionally involved after the vicious murder of one of his best pals. Even Mel Gibson could have done it better.
Getting Away With Murder (15) PolyGram, rental, 11 Aug. Director Harvey Miller already has Big under his belt, which doesn't lend a great deal of credibility to this mediocre film. Dan Aykroyd discovers that his neighbour is the infamous war criminal Karl Luger and, when the media descend, the neighbours rally round in his defence.
Breaking The Surface (15) Odyssey, rental, 11 Aug. Queasy bio-pic of high-diver Greg Louganis (Mario Lopez), winner of four Olympic gold medals. The most interesting thing about this film is Lopez's greasy chest.
