OUT ON VIDEO

A weekly update of video releases. Dates in paratheses indicate a previous review in the Monitor.

* BLOWN AWAY - (R, MGM/UA Home Video). Irish terrorist blitzes Boston bomb squad. Jeff Bridges and Tommy Lee Jones are two of the most engaging actors around, and some scenes have a self-satirical edge that bring welcome relief from the glowering melodramatics that dominate much of the action. The dialogue is downright laughable in spots, though, and the filmmaking is so mechanical that it's hard to get emotionally involved with anything except the ever-more-complicated explosions that pepper the plot at regular intervals. (July 1, 1994)
