Shuttle (MagNet/Magnolia DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Feature: D



Two young ladies return from a Mexican vacation and want to get home from the airport.  Unfortunately, they make the mistake of going for the cheapest fare to get back home and along with two male travelers, get the wrong Shuttle.  Writer/Director Edward Anderson’s entry in the torture porn arena is also part of the “dumb teenagers get killed” cycle and both are very, very tired.


The airport looks like a set and is so empty, you’ll wonder where the Homeland Security budget went, but even pre-9/11 this would still be a turkey and a bore.  I was not surprised how bad it was, but that it did not know how bad it was and just could not stop.  Tired, tired.


The anamorphically enhanced 2.35 X 1 image is on the weak side, especially for color and Video Black, while the Dolby Digital 5.1 and slightly lesser 2.0 mixes just stretch out what is adequate low budget audio at best.  Extras include casting sessions, deleted scenes, behind the scenes featurette and trailer.
