Conclusion: Even the lowest common denominator among so-called popcorn movies typically have at least the semblance of narrative sense, but Switch evidently decided that a comprehensible plot was a low priority. That said, it ultimately doesn't end up mattering that much, for the film is so relentlessly in your face with nonstop action sequence and over the top characters that story elements become almost inconsequential.
Summary: Sidestepping the usual eco-docu strategy (i.e., set up a desperate, end-of-the-world scenario and then yank the viewer in off the ledge), the global-energy movie "Switch" takes a far less hysterical route. Helmer Harry Lynch's method is a bit like an alternating current: Explore one energy source at a time, examine its pros and cons, forecast its future effectiveness, and give a rational evaluation of where the world is heading.
Conclusion: I wonder why Switch has been cropped from its original aspect ratio. Anchor Bay-UK also released a cropped version of Richard Berry's 22 Bullets , also a contemporary French film, though distributed by EuropaCorp. Could it be that someone isn't paying attention? Or is someone in France not playing according to the rules? Either way, this is disappointing because I like the films the UK distributors bring on the market. Let's hope that proper adjustments are made soon.
Conclusion: Malgré la présence de scènes fâcheuses servies par des lignes de dialogues embarrassantes, Switch reste un polar bien ficelé, dynamique et qui tient tout du long en haleine le spectateur. Techniquement, Pathé délivre une édition Blu-ray parfaite avec un transfert 1080p impeccable et une VF offerte en DTS-HD. Peut-être une petite dose supplémentaire de documents bonus aurait été la bienvenue.
