You guys sound like you have stronger stomachs than me. I was actually glad that I watched this one on a portable DVD player with a small screen during some of the bloodier scenes. I don't think it would have bothered me as much if it weren't based on a true story, though. I wouldn't consider this a good movie to show most of my guests, but there are people I could show it to.
Mike, you have convinced me, though. I'll have to check this one out. I just wish I could rent it.
Also, have you tried running it through your HTPC at 1080p? I haven't got that setup, yet.

I looked at scenes in this one today again and I can't help but to be amazed. This one I think could be the best of them all in terms of shadow detail. I know I raved about Spy Game last week, but this one is full of eye candy. The cinematography is spectacular to begin with and putting this on D-Theater was a stroke of good fortune as well. It's breathtaking in its vividness. I recall the DVD as being outstanding as well so we have a superb source master that has generated this visual tour de force quite well.
Those aerial shots of Victorian London with the red sun setting in the horizon is to die for. The detail of the cobblestone streets is extraordinary!
