A review by Mike Shea Movie Rating: ( * * * * * ) DVD Rating: ( * * * * * )
I bought this disc off of the reviews alone. The plot sounds bad on paper, but the movie does complete justice to it. The attraction between George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez put the perfect twist onto a crime story of love. The story is good, the dialog is on the mark and the camera work is original and fitting. The use of still frames to bring out a particular moment in the story, and the way that the dialog of one scene is overlayed on to the visual of another really grabbed me. Definitely one of the better movies of last year. The disc is Anamorphic and Dolby Digital 5.1. It has a directors commentary, good deleted scenes and a making of feature. The disc is a little costly, but at least it has everything it is supposed to have.
