Jackass Number Two DVD Review
SRP: £18.59

Picture

Jackass Number Two comes presented with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio anamorphically enhanced widescreen transfer. Some of it is camcorder material, but most of the footage across the production looks pretty good - distinct in its documentary style, but nonetheless very watchable indeed. There is grain, there is some inherent softness, but with no edge enhancement and no print defects it is all perfectly in line with this kind of production.

Sound

The audio track is a decent enough Dolby Digital 5.1 offering. Again, given the nature of the movie, it is not exactly going to push the boundaries in terms of your aural experience, but nevertheless it does all the tricks and is still clearly better than the alternative stereo track that is also on offer. The dialogue (often shouting and screams of agony) comes clearly from the frontal array and we get some effects in terms of bumps and crashes and background noises (like the rumbling of the rampant herd at the beginning) which offer up some bass. The soundtrack features the familiar Jackass tune, and even some Ennio Morricone, rounding off an apt audio offering.

Extras

Jackass Number Two comes with a Commentary by the Jackass gang, who spend a great deal of time laughing and cringing at the recollection of all of their personal adventures. It is quite an engaging offering, which many fans of Jackass will find required listening, especially as it is akin to sitting amongst them whilst watching their antics.

The Making of Jackass Number Two is Documentary that charts how they put this collection together, how they filmed certain sequences and who was brave enough to commit to the acts, with behind the scenes footage and interviews with the participants who braved the stunts

Aside from this being the Unrated version with additional segments which were not included in the final cut, there are also some Deleted Scenes and some hilarious Outtakes. These are, expectedly, thoroughly entertaining and well worth a watch. Rounding off the disc there are some TV Spots.

Jackass Number Two
Jackass Number Two is all that fans of the first film would have wanted from a sequel. In fact, arguably, it is superior to the original. The video and audio are perfectly in line with the production and there are a wealth of fabulous extras to round off this disc. If you like this kind of thing then there is probably no better single DVD out there and if you don't like this type of production then you probably wouldn't have got this far in the review. There's still too much crudity for my liking but fans should simply have no hesitation in reaching for their credit cards.
