While poking around for info while forming my thoughts on this fun sci-fi/hard action combination; I ran across this British DVD at Amazon.uk. Now, I've ordered from Amazon's Union Jack division quite a few times without a single hitch. This time was no different, as easy as the domestic Amazon.com and always surprisingly speedy despite traveling across the Atlantic (shipped last Tuesday). American accounts on Amazon.uk work exactly the same way and there's even an instant currency conversion at checkout.
Just wanted to point this out for those with all-region DVD players since the e-tailer often has solid sales on horror, action, and cult discs. It just takes checking every so often and some digging through their listings. I Come in Peace (Dark Angel) is only $10.18 shipped and there's a whole slew of good stuff new and old for under $20USD shipped. Not to bust on stateside import e-tailers, but ordering direct from Amazon.uk is almost always at least a few bucks cheaper than say Diabolik or Xploited. I've even seen certain discs for over half off what you'd pay a DVD importer. An example of the savings is Dead Snow, $26.99 shipped at Diabolik DVD, only $16.45 shipped from Amazon.uk.
As for MGM's Dark Angel DVD; it's bareboned but sports an anamorphic widescreen transfer. The picture quality is okay, looking as if created in 1997 as opposed to 2004. Watching it this way makes you realize how cramped the full screen VHS is. Here's a few screenshots for your Dolph enjoyment.
