    GRIPPING HOSPITAL DRAMA

    ¿Extreme Measures' is the story of Dr. Guy Luthan (Hugh Grant), a physician working out his residency at Gramercy Hospital. Guy¿s personal life and profession seem to be right on track until one of his patients unexpectedly dies of mysterious circumstances. Was it medical malpractice, an accident or something much more sinister? Not since Michael Crighton's 'Coma' have we seen a medical suspense/thriller told with such skill and timely shock value. Nothing is what it appears to be and no one is who they report themselves to be. Sarah Jessica Parker costars as Jodie Trammel, a nurse and Guy¿s most trusted friend. She is distraught when Guy is arrested for drug possession but is her apprehension at testifying on his behalf a byproduct of her own disappointment, or is she cloaking a more guarded secret. Gene Hackman is simply marvelous as Dr. Lawrence Myrick, a benevolent crusader in stem cell research who is actually using his connections and considerable clout to fund a clinic using human test subjects. Originally released under the Castlerock label, which used to belong to Columbia Tristar, this movie is now the property of Warner Brothers Home Entertainment and it looks marvelous on DVD. Colors are well balanced, bold and rich. Flesh tones are infinitely more accurate on the DVD than on the previously released laserdisc or VHS versions from Columbia. Contrast and shadow delineation are superb with fine detail visible even during the darkest scenes. The disc is correctly framed in its 2:35:1 ratio and anamorphically enhanced. The audio is a 5.1 mix and nicely balanced with a very aggressive bass that will give your speakers a work out. There are NO extras. I suppose I could fault Warner for not giving us a featurette but with a transfer this good ¿ who cares?
