Default 'Taking Lives' - High-Def Digest Review

Nate has reviewed 'Taking Lives.' He says this is definitely not the best film in the serial killer thriller genre. This Blu-ray has pretty average video, nicely done audio, and a self-congratulatory set of extras.You can skip this one.

Well, I heartily disagree with this review. I like this movie and I own it for the totally reasonable asking price of 12.99 from BJ's warehouse club

I probably would have gave both audio/video 4 stars. I though he was a little harsh. I though it looked great with a few issues here and there. If it had came out like 2 years ago when it was first planned, it probably would have been a 4.5/5 for that time... (video)

Nate pretty much nailed it when he said the only reason to see this movie was because Angelina bared all.

It's true.

What's the most puzzling thing about this film is that at one point it sold for an ungodly price. I bet those people are bummed. I would be to have pay some $100 plus for this stinker.

A film like this should never cost more than toilet paper.

Yep, it's definitely not the highlight of Angelina's career. Great review Nate.

I can see a sea of HD-DVD fanboys complaining that you didn't review the "rare"HD-DVD of it soon...

nah...I'd be remotely curious how the PQ compares though (likely the same since it's Warner).
