Killing Me Softly is a decent sexual thriller. This disc is the unrated version of the film, containing a little more skin, and a more “erotic” cover. The story is a little far fetched, but does contain a few twists that will help to keep the viewer entertained.
”From the very moment that Alice (Heather Graham) locks eyes with Adam (Joseph Fiennes), a mysterious stranger, she is catapulted into a whirlwind of intense erotic desire and adventure, risking everything just to be with him. But, when se…rets from Adam’s past begin to surface, Alice finds herself in a bizarre situation she can’t escape.” – MGM
This DVD sounds pretty good. The Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track is not overly powerful, but dialog is clear, the score is interpreted well, and the soundstage is used effectively. You will not be blow away with how great this disc sounds, but you will also not be disappointed… the audio track works well with the film.
The 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is very nice on this disc. The colors come off very natural, yet very vibrant at times. The skin tones appeared to be a little washed out, but that did not detract from the viewing experience. The transfer is very clean… only a very few noticeable flaws can be noticed throughout the film.
Unfortunately, the only extras you will find on this disc are a medley of theatrical trailers.
This disc is definitely worth checking out. The story is pretty good, and the discs quality is good. For those die hard Heather Graham enthusiasts out there, you will not want to let this unrated DVD pass you by. For those casual fans thriller fans, you will want to give this disc a rent.
