I love this movie! It is quite avant guard and the violence could be toned down a bit...but that is the message isn't it? It is surprising that you come to care for some of these characters, but you do...if there is a major flaw, I think it is that it wasn't set far enough into the future as they were tying it into the millennium which really worked against the success of the film....but I loved it, which is remarkable as it isn't the type of film I usually enjoy and I only watched it because Ralph Fiennes was in it.

I really enjoyed this movie. It keeps you on the edge and there are lots of twists and unexpected turns. All of the actors gave excellent performances, especially Angela Bassett and Ralph Fiennes. The story is well written and directed. I recommend it for anyone who loves mystery, action and surprises!

"First off, I REALLY love this movie. I wish I could do two raitings, one for the movie, and one for the disc, but I can't, so this is only about the disc.
My biggest dislike is that this movie was not put to disc using the anamorphic widescreen technology. Instead, it was matted with the black letter box bars, essentially hard-letterboxing the picture. This wasn't of much concern to me when I originally purchased the movie, because I was watching it on an SD 4:3 TV. Now that I am using a 16:9 HD TV, what I get is letter box bars, AND pillar box bars, essentially reducing my 32in TV to a 22in TV.
I am hoping for a blu-ray version to be released so that I can see this film in all it's intended glory.
Don't get me wrong, pillar box bars have their place when viewing 4:3 content on a 16:9 screen, but when the picture is supposed to be 16:9 or better (2.35:1, etc...) then having both pillar box bars and letter box bars together just makes me feel cheated.
