Some reviewers say this film is great on blue ray to show off your tv with, big colours - sound, but then so are the telly tubbys, this was another one i gave up before the end, at least i think i did, not sure really i think i fell asleep, yawn.
From the Director of 'Pitch Black' & 'The Chronicles Of Riddick' David Twohy, comes a narrative of slowly building suspense, character study, fine acting by all, great script, though whilst a familiar story is both fresh & exciting & is never boring to watch. The scenery alone is worth the price - its simply breathtaking on blu-ray & if you're looking for a disc to show off your tv - this it it. From the start this is Reference material that you don't expect to find. Colours are amazingly beatiful & will blow you away & test your tv's ability to reproduce lush, vivid colours & deep inky blacks. The fine level of detail that is available is spot on. Audio excells also, creating highly believable sound effects driven along by a great musical score. David Twohy always likes to give us something from a slightly different perspective - the road less travelled & he succeeds admirably here with a finely crafted thriller, exquisitely filmed. Highly Recommended!
okay...this is not one of the big films many of us feel a need to buy,,,but....it's a pretty gripping watch.
the filn is 'clever' and tells the tale of a couple of newly-weds spending their honeymoon backpacking on an idilic pacific island.
before they begin their journey a news flash tells of a horrific murder.
well, the clues are most certainly there, however there are also a hatfull of 'red-herrings' to throw you off the scent.
you may find a few less than exciting sequences during the journey, however the scenery is stunning.
i'd say ...try to at least see it.
Very good film, highly recommend it to anybody who likes a good serial killer thriller! The cast is great, the story is pretty original and well paced out. It does at first give you a sense of "WHO IS THE KILLER" to start off with but half way through you should have figured it out before they are properly revealed given certain subtle hints! The picture quality is flawless in hi-def and looks sweet, especially all the Arial views of the gorgeous island! Plus on the blu-ray version you get the directors cut as a bonus, the DVD does not have this making it a longer film giving a little more insight into certain characters!
