    8 / 10
    That`s the best word that can describe this movie for me.
    Amazingly enough, this was the very first time I watched this awesome thriller. And boy - what a ride!!!
    Bridges and Robbins give absolutely stunning performances in portraying people who are so different from eachother. Superb!
    The video transfer is very good. There are no noticeable compression signs nor any visible defects.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are used occasionally and create a nice sound envelope, but this movie is more about dialog.
    The menus are still and silent.
    The extras include a commentary by the director and one of the lead actors, a behind the scenes featurette and an alternate ending.
    Bottom line - a superb thriller that will live you gasping for air. And then there`s more.
