Blood Work

Overview

Warner receives high marks for the transfer on this DVD of Blood Work. Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1 (this is another title that has a separate chopped pan & scan transfer), the image is top notch. Colors are natural, while the blacks are solid and show no sign of break down. Detail is nearly perfect, giving the picture a realistic edge. The sound is also quite good, though not outstanding. The 5.1 English and French tracks don't utilize the back surrounds in any truly effective way, but ...

Overview

Warner receives high marks for the transfer on this DVD of Blood Work. Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1 (this is another title that has a separate chopped pan & scan transfer), the image is top notch. Colors are natural, while the blacks are solid and show no sign of break down. Detail is nearly perfect, giving the picture a realistic edge. The sound is also quite good, though not outstanding. The 5.1 English and French tracks don't utilize the back surrounds in any truly effective way, but the front speakers do show nice separation, while dialogue is clear up front. It's a nice mix that certainly won't impress, but also won't disappoint. Not up to those standards are the supplements offered here. They're rather weak. All that is included are two featurettes, one on making the film, while the other is a conversation (partly in Spanish, with subtitles) about characters with actors Wanda De Jesus, Paul Rodriguez, and Clint Eastwood. Be careful to watch the film first, as the brief "making of" featurette gives the ending away. Along with that is a teaser and theatrical trailer and some filmographies for a few cast and crew members.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
As both an actor and a director, Clint Eastwood gets better as he gets older, and this suspenseful thriller provides the septuagenarian star with one of his most engrossing roles to date. He portrays Terry McCaleb, an FBI agent forced into retirement by the near-fatal heart attack he suffered while chasing a notorious serial killer. Saved by a last-minute heart transplant, a still-ailing Terry is asked by Graciella Rivers Wanda De Jesus to investigate the murder of her sister -- whose heart now beats in his chest. The Michael Connelly novel that screenwriter Brian Helgeland has adapted supplies the director-star with an interesting dilemma that Eastwood exploits for maximum dramatic effect. The search for the woman's murderer leads Terry back to the serial killer whose pursuit nearly cost him his life. Eastwood plays the former G-man as weak, tired, and feverish, constantly pressing a hand to his scarred chest while brushing off admonitions to relax. The character is continually conscious of his own mortality, yet driven by both his duty as a lawman and his obligation to the dead woman who gave him a second chance at life. As the donor's sister, De Jesus is subtle yet strong; she's not a dewy-eyed ingénue or a voluptuous sex kitten, but rather a mature woman who gradually develops affection for the ailing ex-agent. Jeff Daniels scores solidly as the amiable layabout who acts as Terry's chauffeur -- and who figures prominently in the film's exciting denouement. Understated and even elegiac in tone, Blood Work puts a different spin on familiar melodramatic plot conventions, and it has an emotional resonance that's absent from most thrillers -- which makes it, arguably, Eastwood's finest film since Unforgiven. The DVD sports a making-of featurette and interviews with Eastwood and other cast members.
All Movie Guide
When the deconstructive Western Unforgiven brought Clint Eastwood unprecedented respect, it was tempting to hope the newly minted auteur would reserve himself for superior projects and artistic themes close to his heart. What an appropriate metaphor for his career, then, that Eastwood's latest, Blood Work, is about a transplant of that essential organ. It's as though what makes Eastwood tick has been supplanted by a foreign presence his body can't reject, leaving him content to toe the (assembly) line and glumly perpetuate his Absolute Power-True Crime school of pedestrian thrillers. It's also tempting to suggest that this aging treasure of tough guy machismo has "still got it," but Blood Work returns quite the opposite verdict. Eastwood is finally starting to look fragile and elderly -- in fact, thank goodness his character is weak following major surgery, because it provides a narrative explanation why the actor's voice is more gasp than rasp. But Blood Work is depressing in so many ways that aren't traceable to Eastwood's frailties. Tops on the list is the utter conventionality of the script, which follows the familiar path of the umpteen thrillers in which serial killers taunt celebrity FBI agents for the purpose of aggrandizing and fetishizing their crimes. Brian Helgeland has fallen far from his days as writer of L. A. Confidential if this soap opera dialogue and ham-fisted foreshadowing is all he can muster. The tone is schizophrenic, caught between the misplaced gravity of Eastwood's recent films, the ludicrous renegade posturing of his Dirty Harry days, and a cops-and-donuts style of comedy (embodied by pesky irritant Paul Rodriguez) that was never fashionable. Long before the laughable finish, the test results of this Blood Work have already come back negative.
Village Voice
A bracingly no-nonsense, highly professional policier -- as proudly old-fashioned as its curmudgeon hero. J. Hoberman
Chicago Sun-Times
1/2
The strength of the picture, directed by Eastwood, is that it has three intersecting story arcs: The investigation, the health issues, and the relationship that builds, step by step. Roger Ebert
New York Observer
It can be argued, I suppose, that Blood Work was designed from the outset not so much as a whodunit as a why-and-how-dunit, and here the film becomes metaphysically ingenious. Andrew Sarris
