2 Hours, 18 Minutes

During Rob Reiner’s strange and eclectic directing career (see The Princess Bride, North, Ghosts of Mississippi, This is Spinal Tap and Misery), few of his movie hit the mark so heavily as A Few Good Men.  With catchphrases and acting chops galore, Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson hammered out a classic and left little room for improvement…until now.

Amazingly crisp.  Reiner’s A Few Good Men has never look better than it does in the new format.  The widescreen 2.35:1 looks better than the original DVD presentation.  The 5.1 surround sound is relatively disappointing by not being presented in 7.1 option but it isn’t enough to mar the amazing presentation.

Bonus Features:
Commentary, an insightful documentary, and a plethora of subtitle and language options definitely make this one worth the upgrade.

Stellar performances by the main cast of Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson supported by Kevin Bacon, Kifer Sutherland and Kevin Pollack, A Few Good Men stands as an oft overlooked by constantly quoted courtroom drama and the blu-ray presentation is definitely not a let down.
