  1. Okay, so I bought a PS3 console yesterday, and decided to get a Blu-Ray movie just to see how awesome it was.

    Comparing the BD vs. the DVD in an up-sampling DVD player, there was no discernable difference.

    The movie itself is fun — like another poster said, the plot is something of a stretch, but it’s got the awesome Simpson/Bruckheimer explosions, firefights, and camera angles/cinematography.
    Rating: 3 / 5

  2. The Rock still stands, even after all these years, as one of my favorite films of all time. Sean Connery still dominates the screen, while Nicholas Cage plays the dim-witted genius who tries to save the day. The action scenes are mind blowing and the story is well thought out. I give it 5 out of 5 only because I can’t give a 10 out of 5.

  3. I just purchased this film in Blu-ray and a few weeks ago, and it is almost the best transfer in Blu-ray of this action classic since Criterion issued several years ago. There is a little grain in some scenes but overall this is a great improvement over the Standard Def version. Michael Bay, in my opinion, is not a great Director and I bristled at his comments during the HD vs Blu-ray war. His recent “Transformers” left me cold when it arrived in the theatres and I didn’t even finish that and went into another theatre (thank god for multiplexes). The Connery-Cage duo really clicks and Ed Harris is excellent in the role as the misguided warrior. This was the last film for the Simpson-Buckheimer team since Simpson died of a drug overdose shortly after completing this film. Connery in his action mode is still ageless and Cage offers a great comical counterpoint to him in their scenes together. Also the under-rated Michael Biehn is fine in his brief appearance as the Marine sworn to bring Harris & Co under his command. The rest of the supporting cast is also excellent such as the late John Spencer, Stuart Wilson as a general, David Morse as Harris second in command and Phillip Baker Hall as an old buddy of Connery’s who has a secret. This disc is a great demo to show off your sound system particularly in the final moments!! Recommended whole heartedly for action buffs!!

  4. This movie still is just great. The picture quality on the Blu-Ray is also just outstanding.

  5. I loved this movie since it came out. We ordered the Blu-Ray version and it was like watching crystal. It was so sharp. Out of the 30+ discs I own, Cars and the Rock are the best in picture so far. I hope they do the same for Armageddon when it comes out.
