Customer Review

on 11 February 2010
Once again we have the usual modern faults - overemphasised background noise/sound effects and actors mumbling their lines so you cant hear what they say. If you turn the volume up to hear the dialogue the next offering of background noise and sound effects blasts you off your seat. again, it appears (a personal opinion only) that the dialogue sound track has been Dolby encoded which means that the sibilants in speech are muffled, making the dialogue difficult to hear.
If anyone can follow the story in this film they have my utter admiration - we are bombarded with constant flashbacks - 3 months ago, 2 weeks ago, one week ago etc. etc. This numerous flashback technique seems to be the latest Hollywood directorial fad; it should be discouraged. Finally, like all modern films, all the photography is very low key - all the scenes appear so dark.
As far as I can remember, on this disc we are spared the usual "You wouldnt steal a handbag" etc sequence - the one you cant fast forward, but I wouldnt swear to it. There also does not appear to be a Maltesers commercial break which is starting to occur in modern DVDs.(Young Victoria for example).
