Customer Review

on 7 June 2010
This review is for the Blu-ray.

This was a stylish film, with some remarkable cinematography. It toured some very prominent, spectacular buildings and certainly did them proud. At the same time it did bluray proud. HD lends itself perfectly to wide outdoor shots, big canvasses and dramatic vistas. So Picture Quality was very good, with very good colours, good lighting and a great deal of impressive street scenes- never mind the shoot-out at The Guggenheim.

Sound was also very good with a Dolby TrueHD track that gave some impressive effects and if anything it surpassed the excellent picture.

So why only 3 stars? Well the story and interpretation just don't make it. Clive Owen was good, but some of the lesser characters were very two-dimensional. The plot also left too many loose ends that were never resolved, and it didn't end so much as fizzle out. It filled a Saturday evening, and I have no regrets in buying it.

It's worth watching out for the other version though. At the time of writing the price is almost identical, and the other version is a triple play pack, with a DVD copy and a digital copy included in addition to the Blu-ray.
