Reviewed by Alan Paterson, 22nd January 2010
The Ricky Gervais vehicle, ‘The Invention of Lying’ comes clean on Region free Blu-ray with a very decent 1080p VC-1 transfer framed at 1.85:1 with realistic looking skin tones as well as good contrast and black levels.The audio comes in an unremarkable Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround mix that will seldom test a home cinema sound system to its full.The extras are the usual mixed bag of out-takes, fluffs and corpsing with some self indulgent featurettes thrown in for good measure.As a movie, it has a clever premise that probably doesn’t quite fulfil its potential but it’s amusing enough all the same. Co-written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Matt Robinson, it’s worth a watch to see how close it skates to thin ice on religious issues.
