    Sam,

    Thanks for a fine review. This film is one of those movies I do not like to admit that I like, but I do. It is also one of the bigger disappointments I have had with a Universal release, which is a shame, as Universal has done a pretty fine job on their releases so far. I found the picture quality quite 'dirty' with fairly excessive grain throughout the night scenes. Although much better than my SD disk, it was not what I was hoping for. I guess it is probably the best we can expect from a movie like this.

    The review says this is a Combo Format disc. It is one sided, HD only.

    I think this is one of the Universal releases that was originally scheduled for Combo release prior to their reevaluation of the use of Combos on catalog releases, but you are right, it is not a Combo.

    Woops, I will fix that! It was left over from my template and I missed it as I actually finished up the review on my lappy while on travel.
