Due to the horrific attack Helen suffered in her past as an agoraphobic she is confined to her apartment.
The killer uses this against her in his murderous attempts to become a famous serial killer.
Detectives M. J Monahan and Reuben Goetz they have the challenge of trying to capture the killer before he kills again and uses his chance to commit another murder....
While th film will win no plaudits for originality or scares, it's still good to see a character driven thriller, rather than one intending to shock with bucket loads of gore and cheap scares.
Weaver is great as the Agoraphobic, but it does become quite funny the amount of times she shouts out for her carer at the beginning.
The actual story is quite good, but the two 'Tyler Durden' showings of the killer before we meet the character is awful, and just gives the whole game away.
Connick Jr is truly great in this, but did he really have to look like the guy from MAD magazine? Even though it's on for more than two hours, it runs at a steady pace, and never really gets boring, thanks to the two leads.
good film just slightly lacking in areas preventing it becoming a classic.
dvd quality is average for a film it's age and the surround sound fails to impress but this doesn't ruin the experience.
Don't miss it.
First, and most importantly, for UK buyers....this disc is REGION FREE!!! My region-locked player plays it fine. It's from Warner Bros. who do not region lock their blu-rays.
There are lots of review for the actual film, so in this review I'm only going to focus on the blu-ray release.
The biggest question: Is this worth replacing on Blu-ray. Answer: YES!!
The picture on my DVD is awful, and, while the image on the blu-ray isn't perfect all the time it gets damned close. There is some graininess to the image; but, in my opinion, this film benefits from this atmospherically. Colours are bright and vivid and the blacks are deep. The film continues in this vein throughout with only a few scenes showing grain or soft focus issues.
Overall, if you're a fan this is a must-own and I'm very please I bought it.
If I'm honest, I would have liked more extras. A behind-the-scenes documentary would have been excellent (I'm not a fan of commentaries). But, nonetheless, this is a decent release to blu-ray for this excellent thriller.
Audio: English DTS-HD Master 5.1, German, Spanish and French DD 5.1, Portuguese Mono and a Dolby Surround Commentary.
Subtitles: Dutch, English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish.
Extras: Commentary and trailer.
