Movie Reviews

Beware - full screen version cropped to fit widescreen
Peggy Vincent | 05/09/2003
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This version (Collector's Edition)
is worse than the previous pan & scan full screen version. Here the studio cropped the top and the sides of the full screen version to make it fit anamorphic widescreen format, so you lose more of the picture than the full screen version.
Universal is deceptive in not saying it is a matted widescreen version Buyer beware!
This is not a true widescreen and doesent even say that the original apect ratio was modified to fit 16x9 tvs."
Holy Cow! Pacino Power!!

"This movie rocks! I was so happy to see Pacino again after a much to long absence. Why is it that we never appreciate a person and their talent when there around more often? Pacino is just incrediable in this movie and his pairing with Ellen Barkin is perfect. They definitely go on that list of dynamic on-screen couples. I also enjoyed Pacino and Goodman as partners, but than again I find that Al Pacino is one of those actors that seems to bring out the best in whomever he's working with. The movie never falters for me from beginning to end. Its intense, exciting, humorous and of course sexy. Everyone involved in making this movie ( especially the director and writer ) should be proud. Sea Of Love is a classic!"
Really scary, really sexy, really really good
Peggy Vincent | Oakland, CA | 12/17/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Damn, this one keeps you on the edge of your seat. Pacino plays a NYPD detective who falls in love with Ellen Barkin, a woman who's the main suspect in a murder case he's investigating. The mix of suspicion, fear, and sexual arousal is enough to keep the most jaded viewer riveted to the screen, wondering who or what will break first. The chemistry between Pacino and Barkin is intense enough to make the love scenes qualify as some of the hottest of the era.
Super-duper in every way. Wow."
The DVD Doesn't Hold a Candle to the VHS in Picture Quality

(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful film, and sad to say, poorly translated onto DVD. The picture is grainy and washed out. The studio should seriously consider doing a remastering of this in lettebox format so that the video quality is maintained."
