The second featurette is an effects piece and, unlike the first, is more run of the mill. CGI is CGI at the end of the day, and while those shown in The Jacket are fine, they're hardly ground breaking. Still, the inclusion of another short featurette isn't a bad thing. The theatrical trailer wraps things up and is nice to have, but I don't think it's all that hot. It wouldn't really have enticed me to go and see the film on its cinema run. As The Jacket didn't do particularly well at the box-office, it obviously didn't entice other people either.
An entertaining film, with a decent presentation. Fans of films with non-linear storytelling will enjoy it more. You certainly aren't spoon-fed the story here!
