New Line continues to impress; even its non-Special Edition titles are created with remarkable care and attention. This disc offers a widescreen/full-screen option on one side. As for audio, there's a choice of Dolby Surround Sound or Dolby 5.1, with English subtitles. Cast and crew information and the original trailer are included.
The image looks great on this disc -- the cinematography's muted tones were captured perfectly. But the volume seems to have been mastered at an extremely loud level (a minor quibble).
