Default 'Pathfinder' - High-Def Digest review

Just posted Kenneth's review of 'Pathfinder.' Although he wasn't impressed with the film itself, he says this one make for a surprisingly strong Blu-ray release, boasting a striking video transfer, a robust DTS HD MA audio track, and a fairly decent smattering of supplements.

The movie did suck. I was like a bad 300. And I didn't really like it.

I haven't seen the movie yet so it may be a rental. Definitely not a blind buy.

I rented it...it was alright. Nothing great, but not too awful.

Wow... I'm utterly surprised at the video score on this BD. Seeing it in the cinemas I had nothing but dreadful thoughts of how this would turn out on Blu-ray. I remember there being a thick veneer of grain; in fact too much grain for it to be director's intent and I have no problem whatsoever with film grain. The cinematography was colorless and bland - it just looked awful on the silver screen. Oh well, maybe I was watching a bad print?

Same here. This film was given to me as a b-day gift. I thought I would give it a shot. Not going to win any rewards anytime soon and this movie is a one trick pony. Still....some of the imagery was beautiful,imho. Now 'Perfect Stranger'...that movie was BAD,imho.

This movie is a remake of the norwegian film "veiviseren" (pathfinder) and the american version sucked, even with it's fancy slow motion and effects. Watch the original instead.
