    Monster DVD Review
    SRP: £28.98


    Looking drab and soft in places to compliment the productions feel, the print is clean and crisp with colours over saturated using orange and greys to great effect. There are no obvious signs of edge enhancement present and compression effects are absent throughout the 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen image.
    Monster Picture


    Presented in both DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes the soundtrack breathes life into film. The track is dynamic and enveloping but never overly aggressive. The score was actually designed to be 5.1 and this is certainly present in all five speakers and works extremely well. Dialogue is crisp and clear and LFE is used to boast on screen action and the score.
    Monster Sound


    Present in the extras area are two trailers for the movie, a DTS music featurette and demo of soundmixing, an interview with the director and composer. For a film based on a true story there is a distinct lack of any lengthy extras or featurettes which is a shame.
    Monster Extras


    A stunning movie with impressive performances and excellent direction. The DVD offers good picture and sound but the extras are slightly lacking. Recommended.
    Suggested retail price when reviewed: £28.98
