Plot: What’s it about?

A famous doctor is accused of killing his wife…only he didn’t do it. He claims a one-armed man did it. One of the better movies made. Great cast!

This was one of Warner’s first releases, if not the first DVD ever. I doubt it. Still, it’s 16:9 enhanced and supports a flawless picture. Bright, vivid colors and every detail looks crystal clear. It’s transfers like these that make a movie really worth watching.

Video: How does it look?

Audio: How does it sound?

The 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack is awesome. To quote the back of the box “It features an 11 on a 10 scale, train wreck”. This scene alone is worth the sound. I’d put this up against Godzilla or Air Force One any day!

Supplements: What are the extras?

Warner isn’t really into remastering their titles (unless they break laws like “Devil’s Advocate”), but if they would do a special edition of one, this should be it. This movie is in my top five easy. I’d love to see a special edition of a movie of this caliber, instead of it’s “sequal” U.S. Marshals. Still, Production Notes and Cast Bios make the disc a little more interesting.
