'Sleuth' - High-Def Digest Review
 
Kenneth's review of 'Sleuth' is up. He says the film starts out well, but takes a few wrong turns.This Blu-ray release fares a bit better, with above average video, a strong TrueHD track, and a decent collection of supplements. Still, rent this one first.

Call me crazy, but I'm excited about seeing this. Michael Caine can sometimes make garbage look desirable.

I'll reserve my judgement until after I view it.

I understand what you are saying. Caine does up the quality factor when he is in a particular film. But...this one never did anything for me when I watched the trailer. Looks like a snoooozzzzzeee fest,imho. All others... enjoy. I think I will pass on this one. Let us know how you liked it. Maybe I will give it a shot if you and other members think it is good.

Yeah, I will do that. I thought it looked intriguing personally, but I'll give my honest assessment after I've seen it.

Cool. Look forward to your review Scripture.

Can someone spoil the twists for me? I'll be skipping this one but Ken's reaction to the twist is priceless and now i'm dying to know what it was. :)

Rent the original from 1972 with Sir Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine.It's much better than this remake.

same here! The trailer was intresting and it has gotten a 49% on Metacritic which isn't that bad, also the A-list actors!

Yeah, unfortunately for some reason or another, I never got around to seeing it. I'd really like to see it at some point in the future. Just one of those things, so many movies out there.

I rented it.
THe chemistry is sooo intense.
I love this short film!!
OK!

Lets just cut to the chase and say that I love this short film..
Im calling it a short film because of one reason and one reason alone:
STOP WATCHING AFTER 35 MINUTES!! You will be satisfied.
If you want to not get hit over the head by a stupid ending and also being called stupid by trying to cover up a costume. ugh.

Those first 35 minutes are so intense, amazing, and just great.

If this was a short at a film festival,, its pure gold..

So here we go:

Movie(35 minutes) - 4.5/5
PQ: 4/5
AQ: 4/5
Overall: Enjoy the film, stop at 35 minutes.:p
