The Way Back

Rock! Shock! Pop!
26 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Because I’m so technically behind the times, I’m not able to do screen captures of blu-ray discs. Which is not really a bad thing, per se, because captures of blu-ray releases inevitably bring out the complaints of compressed jpegs and Photoshop alterations, even more than they do for their DVD...

  • Summary: For those with a love of historical fiction based in reality – this adventure may have actually happened but we don’t know who it happened to – this is a suitable way to share the experience vicariously. It’s also a lesson in how to depict an ugly ordeal in beautiful settings.

  • Conclusion: I enjoyed this  movie but not as much as I thought I would with all of the people involved in it.  Peter Weir as always captures the harshness and power of nature and its effect on the humans desperate enough to brave it.

The Way Back

High-Def Digest
13 April 2011
  • Conclusion: 'The Way Back' is a well made examination of survival and the will of man. Though there are some minor shortcomings in the script, the visuals, acting, and direction weave a tale that earns its emotional ending. The video and audio presentation are very impressive, but the supplements are too slim.
