My only reasons for not writing off Michael Bay completely are the two Bad Boys movies and this one. I have no problem with its inclusion on the Criterion Collection, because as an explosive rollercoaster ride it works well. Then there's the bitter emotional gravitas from Sean Connery and Ed Harris in their respective roles, as well as the vulnerability of Nicholas Cage as the reluctant hero, that elevate it above the mindless blast-a-thon it could so easily have become. This is one sweet blu-ray: picture is up to a high standard and the sound will get you in trouble with the neighbours. But watching this movie on anything other than full blast is really a pointless exercise. And if you want to gauge the quality of your system's bass, play this movie. If it's good then you'll feel your organs vibrate. The extras are the same as they were on the Criterion dvd, but the picture and sound enhancements make this an essential upgrade.
Region A - Includes most North, Central and South American countries and South-east Asian countries including the Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Japan and Korea.
