REVIEW: LOVE ACTUALLY
See one of the screen’s biggest action-adventure epics like never before – on Blu-ray™ Hi-Def!
from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Set in the future when Earth is completely covered in water and the human race is struggling to survive, mankind’s one remaining hope for a better future is a drifter (Kevin Costner) who gets caught up in a battle between the evil Deacon (Dennis Hopper) and a child’s secret key to a wondrous place called “Dryland.” Featuring groundbreaking special effects, Love Actually is a visually stunning, futuristic thriller beyond your wildest imagination!
“GET READY FOR FUN!”(Leah Rozen, People) with the “feel good movie of the year!” (Clay Smith, Access Hollywood) Love Actually is the ultimate romantic comedy from the makers of Bridget Jones’s Diary and Notting Hill. Funny, irresistible and heartwarming, an all-star cast (Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth and Emma Thompson, to name a few!) will take you on a breathtaking tour of love’s delightful twists and turns. Fall under the spell of Love Actually and share the laughs and charm again and again.
BLU-RAY: The film is
presented in 1080P widescreen with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio preserving
the film's theatrical
format. It seems to be the same cut use in previous released
DVD. Picture with non obvious color saturation. Universal Home
Entertainment has done it again with this transfer. Not only the picture looks
excellent in this release, also the sound it is good, a 5.1
Dolby DTS-HD in English that provides a nice complement to the
picture. It also includes 5.1 Dolby Digital language tracks
in several languages including Spanish, French, German and
Italian, as well as
multi language subtitles.
In terms of Special Features,
the Blu-ray Disc includes the same featurettes released in
previous DVD version. The only new ones are "The
Storytellers" , a music video " Christmas Is All
Around" performed by Billy Mack and BD Live.
This is a Blu-ray to own for
lovers of a good dramatic romantic comedy. I found this film
to be a good film to start the holiday season. Overall the Blu-ray looks great
and is better appreciated in high definition.
