Written and directed by Ben Stiller and featuring a host of stars including Robert Downey Jr, Jack Black, Nick Nolte and Steve Coogan Tropic Thunder is an action packed comedy not to be missed!

A group of well-known successful actors are cast in the biggest, most expensive war movie ever produced! They include Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller) - a pampered action superstar, Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), an intense, three-time Oscar-winning actor; Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black), star of the popular gross-out comedy franchise "The Fatties"; multi-platinum hiphop-star-turned-entrepreneur-turned-actor Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson); and first-timer Kevin Sandusky (Jay Baruchel).

After filming begins, the director (Steve Coogan) has a change of heart and throws the actors into real-life combat and they are forced to become the fighting unit they're portraying. Will they make it out of the jungle in one piece?

 Great Blu-Ray package

| | See all MadGear's reviews (20)

Just watched the US blu-ray (which is region free) and was pretty impressed.

I've read some pretty harsh reviews of the movie but was pleasantly suprised. For a comedy it's very overblown and superfluous but i guess that's the idea behind the project.
There's some great actors on board, but the funniest has to be a rather portly and hairy Tom Cruise who looks and acts more like a Mike Myers character.

The actual Blu-ray is superb. Picture is stunning and is always packed full of detail and is super sharp. The sound is no slouch either with a fantastic 5.1TrueHD mix with plenty of great FX.
There's also loads of extra's including some great outakes and deleted scenes which are almost all HD.

Film 3.5/5

 A good if not great comedy

As with many films recently, was totally unsure how this would live up to all the recent hype. The general answer in my opinion was 'not too badly'. The concept itself was new, refreshing and I like the fact that Hollywood was able to laugh at itself, not too dissimilar to the recent Churchill movie. For me, it started quite slowly after the excellent trailers (which were especially harsh at the movie business!) however half way through the movie the pace had quickened and it flowed nicely. With some excellent cameos and performances I thought this was pretty good, however not quite up to what I was expecting from all the hype, maybe film insiders find it funnier as it's sending up their business from the special effects guys right up to the top. Unlike many comedies recently I did find myself laughing out loud on a couple of occasions, however not enough to make it a 5 star movie I am afraid to say.

 "THE" complete package

If you have a blu-ray player you must buy this two disc special edition, this is probably the best dvd or bd package you can buy.
The picture quality is simply stunning, the best i've seen so far, and the sound is excellent, you also get the bonus disc so you can transfer the movie to your i-pod via i-tunes.
The movie is fantastic, a masterpiece of comedy which integrates the talents of so many big names seamlessly. Their are some great performances, notably robert downey jr, with tom cruise and nick nolte also outstanding, but the entire cast from ben stiller to steve coogan are awesome.
Is this the funniest comedy i've ever seen? Not exactly, you won't be splitting your sides from start to end, but it's the way everything fits together that makes this movie so fantastic. (And the cast)
There's a set of "movie trailers" at the start of the disc featuring the characters from the movie, make sure you don't fast forward past them.

 Great Movie - Digital Copy is awesome!

In my opinion this movie is fantastic, not everyone taste, but it made me laugh all the way through. Downey Jr. was definitely the best actor in this film

Anyway everyone knows that Blu-Ray adds more "umpff" to the picture and sound quality so i wont go into detail.

Ok, so this comes with 2 disks, the blu-ray with the movie in HD, and a DVD with digital copy. You can explore the disk, or follow the wizard that pops up, and you can transfer the movie to your PC!

It has 2 formats WMV (Windows Media Video) in resolution for the PC & Portable Device, and iTunes for the PC & Portable Device.

This is a really big bonus feature, as this saves you money from buying converters to get the movie on to your phone, or ipod ect...

This is a definite a must have!

 The Digital Copy Works On Macs!!!!

| | See all BURBMAN's reviews (22)

i have a macbook and have already bought Hankcock and Pineapple Express and it really annoyed me that i couldn't use the digital copies to play on my ipod touch. where as this one really promotes the fact that it has a digital copy and therefor it is MAC enabled.

All that aside i think this is one of my top 10 movies of all time.
Its one of those film where i don't know how any one could not like this... its brilliant.

And as Stephen Fry said on Jonathan Ross the other night, " it had me in stitches when you see Tom Cruise unexpectedly playing Les Grossman and dancing to Low by Flo Rider!!

i love this film and cant fault anything.. its very funny and cleverly done. enough said!
