Usual Suspects First Look
I think this one's a bit of an exclusive. We now have our hands on a copy of The Usual Suspects which is due for release on 29 April via MGM. We'll be carrying out a full in-depth review soon, but I thought I'd quickly glance over the discs to to get an idea of what we can expect.
First up, the picture is correctly framed and anamorphic. It seems well defined with little print damage and is an excellent transfer - it certainly puts the previous release to shame. The sound is DD5.1 and is nice and involving.
In terms of extras, we get quite a nice selection - two commentaries, one from director Bryan Singer and screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie and another from John Ottman. I haven't had a chance to listen to either of them just yet. Disc two features a number of interviews with the cast and crew, a gag reel, a 'Keyzer Soze: Lie or Legend' featurette, 'Introducing the Usual Suspects' featurette, 'Heisting Cannes with The Usual Suspecs' featurette, 'Taking out the Usual Suspects' interviews and outtakes, a selection of deleted scenes hosted by John Ottman, an international trailer, US trailer with an introduction by John Ottman and a number of US TV spots.
All in all it looks like a nice package and is almost certain to be one that I'll be adding to my collection when it gets a full release. Look out for our full review soon.
