    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A very good thriller starring Affleck (surprisingly good) and Jackson (as good as ever) as two people who basically just wanted to get through another day without any major events. But then again, in that case - we wouldn`t have had this movie.
    Despite the fact that the movie is a battle between good and evil, none of the major characters is evil, but still - the movie delivers.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs at all and the picture is crystal clear.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The surrounds are used occasionally and the sound is basically dynamic and appropriate for this kind of a movie.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the director, a behind the scenes featurette and 3 deleted and extended scenes.
    Bottom line - a good movie, packed in a nice disc. Recommended.
