By Marty From SF HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 Feb. 2009
Format: Blu-ray
If you have to see a realistic and horrifically depressing film with great performances - this is it. This tragedy set in a prison community in the racist south is chock full of surprises and shockers. Thornton's three generational family is a conflictual mess with varying degrees of vicious racism and mental illness. Halle Barry's family fares no better with tremendous loss of everything and everyone in her life. When the two finally meet, there is a sort of acceptance and redemption on both parts, but its terribly painful to watch. Heath Ledger plays Thornton's more sensitive son in an underplayed role. Halle Barry bares her soul and her body with a worthiness Oscar rewarded, only to see her disappear into the "X-Men" again! Barry and Thornton have a torrid sex scene that is barely cut only to have him wake up in the morning with his underwear on - only in America!

Now in this blu-ray edition, the colors, crispness and sound is impeccable. The sound is in DTS 5.1 and extras include, Audio Commentary with Director and Writers, four deleted scenes, the featurettes of `On the set', `Behind the scenes with the producer', cast and crew interviews, music for the film and the theatrical trailer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monster's Ball (Blu-ray) 23 Mar. 2013
By Johnny Forthy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Great movie,great acting by Halle Berry and Billy Bob Thornton. She won best actress award in 2001. It is a very disturbing and difficult movie to watch at times,but it will get you glued to your seat.It's about people who's lives will change forever.A prisoner who was on the Death Row and a prison guard Billy Bob Thornton who got involved in relationship with the prisoner's wife and just watch unlikely story evolved.This is a movie you got to see 'all of Halle Berry'. It is a sad story, but good one and will get set in your mind for some time.
Blu ray picture is perfect, but volume had to be turned right up

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT MOVIE 27 Dec. 2009
By Kyshawn Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
NOW I SEE HOW HALLE WON AN OSCAR FOR THE MOVIE.SHE WAS EVERYTHING AN ACTRESS SHOULD BE IN A ROLE WHICH IS DRAMATIC,CONVINCING,SEXY AND MAKE YOU THINK DURING THE MOVIE. That love scene was the most passionate, realistic act I've ever seen in a movie. A must see for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honestly the Film is a Drama-Romance classic and superb! 12 Dec. 2015
By John S. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
First I would like to say, "Yes I've had a infatuation for Halle Berry!", but I still give a true review. Monster's Ball was far most life like film that has a true capturing Ahavah of turning hate into love. From a prejudice individual to honoring the beauty of a gorgeous woman. There was much heart-felt sentiment in this film from a mother struggling as a single parent, a son being hated by the father, the father trained in the ways of being a redneck, a mother struggling in poverty, and much more. The film is definitely unrated in sexual matters but being honest that what many of us adults like about the movie but the connection of the sexual matters did give more so amorous and sensual type of love making with a little rough lovemaking, spiced with one of the most gorgeous women in the world Halle Berry. I also love the way Halle was more so virtuous in the film and embraced her intimate hairs in the film. The portion of Billy playing the prejudice individual was more realistic and well acted. Honestly the film was excellent! The film given a more public figure of inspiration on how to treat a gorgeous woman (basically, as treasure, devotion, sensual with a little ice cream on the side).

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing and compeling 19 Jan. 2009
By M. HARRIS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
When I first saw this film, I was amazed at Halle Berry's performance. She really "opened up" with her heart wrenching emotions; that stole the show. She deservedly earn the Oscar that year!Monster's Ball
