Good review and I agree the film is not a dud, but I skipped it during its theatrical due to bad word of mouth. I think I just have to accept that I should watch all John Moore films and ignore the word on the street. As someone who played the game I thought it was in the spirit of game while carving out its own cinematic image. I'm also slightly more forgiving of Mila Kunis, while beautiful the girl has acting chops that say a Jessica Alba is lacking. After her one two punch of Forgetting Sarah Marshal and this I am a fan.

Very good review. Also nice to see that Amazon is selling this for $26 which is within the price range I would hope that all new releases sell for. I just might pick this up given your rave review about the soundtrack.

Wow I'm tempted. $20 is my personal tipping point but I may have to make an exception or at least put this at the top of my Netflix queue.

I would suggest a rent....While this soundtrack is great no doubt, it certainly is not my favorite personaly and the movie is not one for repeat viewings to put it nicely IMO. Glad I rented this instead of a blind buy. As good as the audio is, there should have been more to take advantage of it IMO considering the predictable and weak story.

I agree. This movie was a whole lot of 'meh'. I'm glad I opted for the $5 rental vs. the $20 purchase. I'd sooner play the video game again than watch the movie another time.
Universal Blu-ray Discs I will not be buying while they're offered only as Blu-ray + DVD 'flipper' discs:

The Jackal
, Out of Africa, and Traffic.
