    What a ridiculesly boring movie. It is plotless, badly acted and did I say boring? Oh, I guess I did.
    The video transfer of both the widescreen and the fullscreen is below average. A lot of scenes contain scratches and the compression signs are visible very often.
    The DD 2.0 soundtrack is flat. While the music is nice on occasions, the sound envelope is just not good.
    The menus are all still.
    The extras include a commentary by the producer (which, frankly, I did not bother listening to) and some production notes.
    Bottom line - as if the VERY dull movie was not enough, the disk itself is very poor, visually, audio-wise and extra-wise. Don`t bother.
