This film contains Jason Statham's first ever screen kiss.

In an effort to completely flood the market with blu-ray DVDs, BD leadre and co-founder Sony is pushing out everything they can, including this sure-to-be $5 bin sci fi thriller (of course, that bin will be a while in the making). 

QUALITY:
Not very good at all.  The picture is grainy as hell and the sound is very lopsided.

BONUS FEATURES:
Commentary, video diary, featurettes.

The movie is relatively cheesy but, that doesn't really matter here.  The big thing to point out is the fact that the quality is just downright disappointing.  The picture is is extremely hard to enjoy.  I haven't seen the DVD version but I would imagine that, somehow, this transfer is even worse.  Same goes with the sound.  The bonus features are relatively pointless and, to note for some reason, the commentary is listed as "Director and Natasha Henstridge Commentary".  Since when is John Carpenter not worthy of mentioning by name?
