REVIEW: FRANKIE GO BOOM
Sibling rivalry sinks to a hilarious new low as a humiliating video goes viral in
Frankie Go Boom, an outrageous and delightfully edgy comedy available on Blu-ray™ and DVD on May 14, 2013 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. For decades, amateur filmmaker Bruce (Chris O’Dowd, This is 40, Bridesmaids) has tortured his awkward brother Frank (Charlie Hunnam, “Sons of Anarchy,” Children of Men) with a series of embarrassing videos posted on the Internet. Bruce finally goes too far when he uploads a video of a disastrous one-night stand involving the inebriated daughter of a loose-cannon ex-movie star. To try to undo the damage, the brothers enlist the help of Bruce’s transsexual computer-hacker buddy played by Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy,” Hellboy) in one of the year’s most hysterically unexpected performances.
The film is
presented in widescreen in a 2.40:1 aspect ration preserving its
theatrical format. The picture is just flawless. Not only the
picture looks great in this release, also the sound it is good,
a 5.1 Dolby Digital in English that provides a good complement
to the picture. It also includes English,
and Spanish subtitles.
