    All I can say is that it`s a crap film, with good picture and sound and some interessting Extras, apart from that avoid it like the plaque!

    As a fan of the computer games I was looking foward to the film installment. I still enjoyed it though the DVD itself was impressive by Paramount (for once) and once again good picture and sound. The film has a straight foward storyline and lacks confidence but the action sequences attracted me to this film none the less.
    Jolie who is stunning, perfect for the role has signed up for another film so DVD will be blessed again.
