I've heard nothing about this one, but I just saw the trailer on the PS3 store and it was stunning. Anybody know/heard anything about this flick/disk?

Thanks for both of the review links. I'm surprised there's not more buzz about this film on this forum. It sounds like a film with amazing visuals and a great audio/video transfer. Also, I thought folks around here tend to favor films with fantasy elements. I hope it gets the audience it deserves on video despite its very limited theatrical release.

Maybe I should change the name of the thread to "The Fall . . . get it"

The movie looks really weird, but could be awesome. Rent first, I think.

I agree, after downloading the trailer from PSN I am now adding it to my Netflix gueue, I had never heard of it before this week. Looks amazing by the way, based on the trailer this may be a tier 0 movie.

Looks amazing

My mom works for Sony, and she brought home a copy of "Starhawk BETA"
I quickly slipped it into my trusty PS3, and started playing.

My copy shipped today.

Haven't seen this one yet but I seem to be obsessing over the stills and the clips. Maybe I need help?

Really looking forward to checking this one out.

Love the black and whites in the gallery. Lone Ranger?

Saw the movie for the first time last night. The AQ is amazing!! Very detailed and LOUD!! Probably one of the best explosion sound on blu-ray. There were quite a few time that I thought my speakers gonna blow up!!

The costume design is gorgeous, with the amazing details from Blu-ray, it really showcased every beauty of it.

The movie itself is a bit strange, I will rewatch it with no hesistation. The little girl acting was super!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (PQ: 4/5 AQ: 5/5)

FROM IMDB: "Catinca Untaru (ALEXANDRIA) didn't speak English. She learned the lines by heart."

WOW!!

Why is this film R rated? Would it be OK for your teens to watch?

Thanks!

Greetings,

There is some violence and thematic elements in the story that little ones might be bother by. I see no reason why it wouldn't be fine for teenagers though.
