20TH CENTURY FOX
Alpha Keep Case
Non-Anamorphic Widescreen (2.35:1)
2 Theatrical Trailers
ENTRAPMENT was a pleasant surprise. I
thought it was going to be another run-of-the-mill
thriller. Instead, it's a very smart ride in the art
of stealing. It's not often that you root for the bad
guys, but anytime you're dealing with mega-stars
Connery and Zeta-Jones, you can't help yourself.
If ENTRAPMENT came from New Line Cinema,
we would've gotten a Special Edition. Instead, it
comes from Fox. And we definitely don't get a SE
here. A trailer for the movie and for RISING SUN are
included. Yes, just what I always wanted. Also, the
cast listing is under the features page. Cast listing
you say? Yep, it tells who is in the movie and that
is it. Someone actually spent the time to put this on
the dvd. No info about the cast, but their names.
Fox, you idiots. Thank goodness someone smarter did
the transfer, because it looks fabulous, even if it's
non-anamorphic. The audio doesn't offer alot of bass,
because this isn't a blockbuster. It does its job.
Dialogue is easily heard and the surrounds are nice.
Fairly nifty animated menus give this an extra 1/2
point on the feature grade.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed
this movie. It's definitely better than the very slow
paced THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR. I recommend this crime
caper over that one any day.
