Big Empty,The DVD Review
SRP: £19.98

Picture

Presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen the image is very good for such a low budget affair. Colours are rich and well saturated with hardly any signs of bleed or bloom and skin tones appear natural. The image is sharp most of the time and detail levels are consistent, only now and again do things appear a little soft and hazy, mostly in wider shots and pans. The print for the most part appears clean with only small amounts of grain seen in darker scenes and some dirt can be seen now and again, overall not a bad effort for a low cost movie.

Sound

There is nothing outstanding about the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack which does the job adequately. Dialogue is intelligible and warm with surrounds used sparingly for the odd effect or pan, everything has a nice dynamic punch and the sound mix is enveloping.

Extras

Extras include a detailed and interesting commentary from the director, a funny gag reel, some interesting deleted and extended scenes with commentary, a picture gallery with commentary, costume and trailer galleries and finally a short making of featurette which is detailed and not the usual HBO type of promotional film. Overall the extras are of interest and explain the budget constraints and production details.
Big Empty,The
A low budget thriller with some good performances and nice DVD presentation, is worthy of your attention.
