Thumbs up 'Crank' - High-Def Digest Review

'Crank' is currently Amazon's top-selling Blu-ray disc, and after reading Peter's just-posted review, I understand why... The disc boasts a 4.5 star video transfer paired with a 5 star soundtrack, plus some solid extras and even an high-def exclusive video commentary track.

The Standard-Definition DVD had the PiP Video Commentary too, so it wouldn't be a HD bonus content, just another supplemental.

I saw on Blu-Ray.com that this was one of the best Blu-Ray's currently available. I went by Bestbuy today and did not have it there. There is another store that has it and I planned to add it to my collection.

The other Bestbuy store had about 4 or 5 copies - while the one close to my work had none.

More important, this Bestbuy had "Open Season" and I watching it after 24 tonight.

Very enjoyable film.

Peter's review is spot on, but I feel giving it 4.5/5 because of "edge enhancement" is a little unfair - the enhancement is most likely in the master print and so will of course be in the Blu-Ray transfer, thus it is not a fault of the Blu-Ray transfer and it should not be marked down because of this. 5/5 is the only fair option for this disc unless it can be confirmed that the enhancement was added during the transfer to Blu-Ray.

Either way, one of the best looking Blu-Ray discs out there.

Mark

While the story was...meh....the experience was KICK ASS. This is the best time you'll have watching a Blu-Ray. Youve never seen anything like this. Im glad the 2 directors (former camera operators, I believe) took such chances with this movie. I would say this was the best action movie of the year...and I dont think it's possible to argue against it.
