3.0 out of 5 stars Lacked any sort of meaningful resolve, 17 April 2011
This review is from: Stone [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
There was a lot to like about this film to begin with, and throughout there was a sense that there was something profound around the corner for all involved. Sadly as the film progressed that something failed to materialise.

The film was a slow burner and a haunting score added to the tension and feeling something big was instore for the characters. The performances were good I thought, and testament to this is the fact that De Niro was outperformed by his co stars, Norton and Jovovich.

I found myself ingrossed to begin with as the story played out - and with an underlying theme of religion and sprirituality - I was truly expecting something of biblical proportions to wrap things up. Sadly though, the film just kind of fizzled out.

For me, the film started well and looked promising, but in the end failed to deliver anything spectacular and although enjoyable in places but lacked any sort of meaningful resolution and failed to deliver the final bang we were lead to believe was instore.

The Blu ray wa good quality but the extars were rubbish - just a making of documentary and a couple of very short, rubbish interviews. I would say there is very little reason for the extra outlay on Blu Ray so save some money and get it on DVD if you decide to buy it. But think twice about as I only give it a score of 3 out of 5. In fact, I don't even think this film was released at the cinemas; says a lot.
