Blu-ray review: The Rock

A solid catalogue release from Disney, The Rock holds up well in high definition, and indeed compares favourably to many HD releases of more recent films. While the missing audio commentary is a shame, at the end of the day the impressive (albeit not flawless) audio-visual presentation means that those who already own the film on DVD are highly advised to pick up a copy of the Blu-ray release.

It’s got explosions, it’s got car chases, and it’s got Nicolas Cage doing his “I’m a loveable dope” shtick. Yep, sounds like the perfect HD release. I’ve reviewed Disney’s recent French Blu-ray release of The Rock.

Great review - Michael Bay never fails in giving me an enjoyable and visually stunning experience. He's a very talented filmmaker, imo, though not in the way that most snobbish cinephiles would like
