For one of the greatest action movies ever (intelligent, but still amazingly entertaining) this is a poor DVD. The only real feature is the theatrical trailer (I would've loved some audio commentary from McTiernan or Sean Connery, or maybe an audio track with just Basil Poledouris' incredible score). It's widescreen, but not anamorphic. Why do companies release DVDs that aren't anamorphic??? Overall, it doesn't cost much, but it's not really worth buying. If you do buy it, don't get it for anything but the movie. Hopefully Paramount will get it together over there and release a disc that does this movie justice.
