Catch 22 Blu-ray Review



 

OVERVIEW: CATCH-22, the critically acclaimed limited series from the producers of Argo and “True Detective,” arrives on DVD November 19, 2019 from Paramount Home Entertainment.

Based on the celebrated Joseph Heller novel, the Emmy-nominated** CATCH-22 is Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes. The limited series is executive produced by Academy Award® and Golden Globe®-winning actor George Clooney*, Academy Award®-winning producer Grant Heslov*, and Emmy® nominated producer Richard Brown.

The CATCH-22 two-DVD set includes all six episodes from the limited series, plus over 60 minutes of exclusive bonus content, including a three-part, behind-the-scenes featurette entitled “The Cogs of War,” 13 deleted scenes and outtakes from every episode.

SYNOPSIS: CATCH-22 follows the adventures and misadventures of a U.S. air squadron in Italy during World War II. Yossarian (Christopher Abbott) is a bombardier whose frantic obsession every time he goes up on a mission is “to come down alive.” The real enemy for Yossarian and his rag-tag bunch of friends is the bureaucracy of the military, inverting logic at every turn. The pinnacle of this is Catch-22, a military by-law which states that if you fly your missions, you’re crazy, and don’t have to fly them; all you have to do is ask. But if you ask not to, then you’re sane, and so you have to fly them.

DVD: The film is presented in widescreen in a 16x9 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 Master Audio in English that provides a good complement to the picture. It also includes  English subtitles.
