John Woo directs this all action movie starring John Travolta, Christian Slater and Samantha Mathis. The movie basically is about 2 Stealth bomber pilots. One who is trying to steal two nuclear weapons [Travolta as Vic Deacons] and one who is trying to stop him [Slater as Riley Hale].
The image transfer was better than expected. The movie is presented in widescreen (2.35:1) and is not 16x9 enhanced. Colors are rich and the blacks are true. No signs of compression problems at all.
The sound is presented in DD 5.1 which on the surface is extremely wonderful to listen to. However, during the bigger explosions, the LFE (.1) channel, did not reproduce as much bass as one would expect. But overall, great sound and great directionality.
Extras on the disc include: Animated Menus with sound, scene access with 22 chapters stops, a trailer, French track, English/Spanish subtitles and English closed captions.
Great entertaining disc.
