    I was really disappointed by this movie.
    The 2 leads have more than their share of respect from me, but somehow, upon and after watching this movie I got the feeling, that it was going nowhere. The plot is pretty simple (no twists whatsoever), very predictable and rather boring at some points. I counted about a dozen yawns from me during the movie (and I wasn`t tired at all). :)
    The video looks rather good. The transfer is clean of scratches and is anamorphic widescreen 1.85:1.
    The audio is very good, but I must give credit to the music. The music is very much a big part of the movie. Despite the fact that some scenes contain a musicl score that does not fit the atmosphere of the scene at all, the music is great.
    The disk also contains a seperate musical score channel, which is refreshingly nice.
    All the bonus stuff on the disk is rather ordinary.
    In conclusion: don`t buy this disk. Rent it only if you want to see Harrison Ford in one of his weakest performances.
