Default 'The Way Back' - High-Def Digest Review

Steven Cohen has reviewed Peter Weir's 'The Way Back.' He says this is a well made movie from a skilled director and cast. This Blu-ray features exceptional 4.5 star video, excellent audio, and a disappointingly small number of extras. Recommended.

Altho I never had the chance to see this theatrically because of its limited engagement, I had always imagined how good this film would/should look on bluray because of its abundant & diverse exterior sequences. I'm happy to hear that the PQ matches the epic scope of the story

Haven't seen the movie yet, but the book "The Long Walk" is a great and fascinating read. It's "true story" status is controversial, but who cares, it's a good story either way.

While I found the acting very good and the story interesting, I thought the movie moved too slow for my tastes.

Yeah... I expected more from this and in the end it was a plodding survival story full of cliches. I started tiring of it after a while then when noticing there was still an hour to go I hit Eject and made better use of the rest of my evening.

Visually it's a very well presented movie... that wasn't enough fo rme though.
