1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is another reason this
is so watchable; a fine digital HD shoot that is very fine and
consistent throughout in the style chosen, while the DTS-HD MA
(Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is not up to the image, being a
dialogue-based work as expected. Extras include deleted scenes, a
feature-length audio commentary, bloopers and trailers.
