I wanted to see this in theaters since it's directed by Richard Donner, but it slipped between the cracks. The same thing happened when it came to DVD, but when I noticed it was out on HD-DVD, I rented it from Blockbuster online. I'm glad I finally gave it a shot, because it was actually pretty good. It certainly wasn't the greatest action movie I've ever seen, but it was above average in my opinion. Willis turns in a good performance, and I even warmed up to Mos Def's character (once I got past his dialogue delivery). Storywise, I kept thinking it was something Michael Mann might do, but it obviously lacked that director's visual flair and style. The story was a bit heavier than I expected because I thought Willis just had to transport Mos Def over 16 city blocks, but I didn't know that he'd be protecting him from corrupt cops. So, the plot isn't layered or complex by any means, but some of the themes brought it up a little. As for the presentation, I thought it looked stellar despite being on a combo disc. Everything looked clear and clean, with a good amount of detail. The audio was very immersive,(especially during some of the shootouts) but I was surprised by how sparingly the LFE is used (could be something up with my setup though). I don't know if anyone will be using this as demo material, and in all honesty, the HD presentation ended up being the icing on the cake because the film itself turned out to be better than expected. If you haven't checked this one out yet, and you have an HD-DVD player, give it a shot.
