Fun, Guns, and Sean.,
This review is from: The Rock [DVD]  (DVD)
OK, it's not the best film that Simpson Bruckheimer and Bay, have produced. However, The Rock is still cool. It is interesting to see Nic Cage start on his path as action hero, and to see Sean Connery reprise his role of 007, (Isn't that the sort of mission 007 would have been sent on? Think about it, and the dates mentioned, what was connery acting in at the time?)
As with all the films that have digitally mastered on the cover, the picture is exceptional. I would have wanted more Bass in my explosions though, and the 5.1 soundtrack is not used to it's full potential. The film is still well worth it's purchase price, well done Amazon.
I would say that there are absolutely no extras though, when will the studios realise that we don't want to have to flip our disk half way through, and the reason we convert to DVD is for the additional information DVD provides. DVD is the format for the film buff and the studios should look at the extras provided on the JAWS special edition as an example of true value for money. Anyway enough moaning, if you liked The Rock at the cinema buy it, but not for any extras......
