Ok so assuming you agree with me and think this is a classic ,,,lets cut to the chase : It is classic, but flawed. Fishburne is a bit mis-cast and the acting dis-joins at times. but for 1999 this is good-to-awesome. BUT Blu-ray gives it a new lease of life. The pastel greens and sepias give the film a whole new depth. I am arty but not up my own A*** so I can see how blu-ray really does transform this movie. WELL worth the upgrade from DVD.
