Default 'The Machinist (German Import)' - High-Def Digest Review

Kenneth's review of 'The Machinist (German Import)' has been posted. He says it's a fascinating film showcasing a truly disturbing performance by Christian Bale. This Blu-ray sports a stunning video transfer, excellent DTS HD Master Audio, but no supplements. Worth importing.

One of the vary rare occasions where I have seen the BD before it gets a review here and I can only say I concur 100%. I was smitten by the awesome PQ and AQ especially since this was released by a smaller German studio and I have the pre-conception that they simply cannot be as good as the majors. In this case this has proven totally false. It is truly a top-notch release as long as you can live without the usual extras. For me a perfect movie presentation is what counts and that's what you will get here!

Ah, must have for me then. I've always been interested in the Japanese HD DVD, but it was just too expensive and still is. Now Germany, that's right next door for me.

I love this movie. If there is no NA release before long then I'll consider importing this one.

Thanks for the review!

One of my fav Christian Bale films, I just can't justify the import price. Here I will wait patiently for the BD in the U.S.

I'm sure (I wish?) with Christian Bale's ever-growing popularity, there has to be a U.S. release in the picture. I can't afford importing movies.
