Excerpt: Another great "shoot 'em up" action movie, only this time I thought the writer and director did an exceptionaly great job. Good acting, well written and with an ending that you can feel good about. I've heard a lot of good things about this movie and now after finally seeing it I can see why. As for the picture quality here, yes, it is an older movie and that definitely shows throughout but even so, I thought this one looked absolutely amazing.
Excerpt: I consider myself a serious movie goer, but I must admit that I had never heard anything about this cult classic until resently. I read the reviews all over the internet, and the majority were praising this film in one way or another. For that reason, I did a blind buy of the movie. After the first 15 minutes or so of watching this flick, I truly thought that I had wasted my money, but soon after things started picking up.
Excerpt: A good transfer, only occasionally does the audio have anything worth noticing (there's mostly dialogue) but it a vast improvement in sound over the DVD. The theatrical cut looks better, the directors cut looks way too dark and lacks details in a painfully noticeable way. A must buy for fans, a great purchase for those who've never seen it but enjoy movies like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Lucky # Slevin.
Excerpt: I went and purchased this movie today, after hearing so much about it and how great it is. I will say I did not love it as much as the people who told me i have to see it. That does not mean it isn't a good movie because it is a good movie, just not what i was expecting after hearing all the praise about this movie from my friends. The characters, along with the story are very interesting. The PQ is up to par in my opinion along with the audio also.
Excerpt: Finally. This was one of the firs movies I wanted on Blu-Ray and all I can say is that Fox delivers again with a cleaned up picture and amazing sound. The movie always was a little grainy and the movies remains true to that. Thanks Fox. Not get cracking on Walk the Line, Fight Club, and the Alien films. I'll tip her.
Summary: I've always enjoyed non-linear storytelling. A number of people seem to have picked up on this aspect of the movie and thus dubbed it similar to Pulp Fiction (though no one mentions Reservoir Dogs) when this movie takes non-linear storytelling to a level beyond where Quentin Tarrantino was ever able to go. Now, certainly Memento came along afterwards and transformed the entire art of non-linear storytelling.
