Default 'Good Shepherd' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of the Robert De Niro-directed 'The Good Shepherd' is up. He found the film itself to be a disappointment, but as an HD DVD release it's just fine, sporting a solid video transfer and a technically fine sound track. This one even boasts one of Universal's HD-exclusive "U-Control" video commentaries, although of course you'll need to like the film in order to appreciate it.

Full review here:

Sadly, though I like De Niro, this is most likely a rental for me. I have not heard anything exciting about it.

I loved the movie. For me it was exciting from the begining.
One of the best movies of 2006.
But I can understand why many people don't like it.

I wouldn't call it an "exciting" movie, but it is a rich, fascinating story. The pacing is very slow and the movie requires you to pay close attention to even the smallest nuances and details, so I perfectly understand why many people had trouble getting into it. I thought it was terrific, personally.

i really want to see this and like this cuz of the great actors and the story that seems good. but with a review of 2.5/5 stars for the film itself i dont see how thats possible. i'm not a renter, i'm either a buyer or a not buyer. so i guess i'm gonna pass this one up unfortunately.
