What do you when you are in your mid 20’s and are diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and only given a short amount of time to live. Do you move home and surround yourself with those who you love or do you enlist your friends to help you rob a bank and see if you can go out in a blaze of glory. This is an interesting film with a somewhat original storyline, there is a nice little twist at the end that you can see coming but overall it was an entertaining watch.
The 1.33:1 full …creen transfer looks quite average in terms of quality. The video does sport a nice image that is punchy with good colors and great shadow detail. Unfortunately it is plagued with a grainy image for half the film.
Yawn, Dolby Digital 2.0. This audio track does not really shine, which is often the problem with such dialog driven film such as this. Nothing else, in terms of surround activity or sound movement, happens in this release. At least they get the dialogue right.
If a trailer qualifies for special features then bring it on.
With a couple of tweaks to the storyline, a better transfer and some attention paid to the soundtrack this could have been a really cool film, instead it is mired in mediocrity. The same can be said about this DVD release.
