I have done searches and have came up with nothing on this new dvd that just came out 09/02. Is this movie hated that much? I don't get it. I saw this at the theatre and enjoyed it very much. I think it is one of Vin Diesels better films. Anyway, I did purchase the dvd on Tuesday and watched it a day later. And you already know what I think about the film itself. Great movie. Vin plays a very convincing role and shows that he can act and play a dramatic role. Larenz Tate and Timothy Olyphant also did a very good job. Now to give my thoughts on the quality of the dvd itself. I could definately tell that New Line did not think that a lot of people would be buying or renting this movie because it just plain sucks. The picture is very grainy and dark. It also looks unnatural and digital. There is also edge enhancement evident in this transfer. The audio is not that much better. Dialogue was unclear at times and hard to understand. There was a sloppy over cooked bass track that would play througout the movie and was very distracting. In paticular there is this one scene in the middle of the movie where Vin Diesel is meeting in a parking lot to do a drug deal and a big shootout takes place. I can remember watching this at the theatre and thinking to myself how good this was going to sound on my home theatre. The shootout was overshadowed by that loud over cooked bass note. You could barely hear the gunfire and there was no defination or impact to the shots fired. Why do directors think that every gunfight needs some kind of music playing during it. Still to this date the best most realistic and intense shootout I have ever seen is the one in Heat. There was no music during that scene and I felt like Robert De Niro was standing in my living room firing that gun. This dvd's extras were very minimal. There were some New Line peviews a trailer and some deleted scenes. One thing that I wanted to point out, although the extras were minimal there was one deleted scene that any guy would drool about. There was an extended dance scene with Rachel Sterling,who plays Assia. All I have to say is WOW! It had me drooling and happy. Anyway here are my ratings. Movie out of Video 1/2 out of Audio 1/2 out of Extras 1/2 out of I like the movie a lot, the dvd is well under the quality which should be expected these days.
