Overview

Warner has rescued a catalog favorite from video oblivion with this DVD of Looker. The widescreen, anamorphic video transfer looks excellent, offering rich colors and a finely detailed image that is miles ahead of the television and VHS versions of this title. The Dolby 2.0 Stereo mix is fairly basic but it does use Barry DeVorzon's hypnotic, synthesizer-shaded score to good effect. The disc also offers a few noteworthy extras: there is a video introduction by Michael Crichton, a full-length commentary track by Crichton and a theatrical trailer. Of these extras, the most satisfying is the commentary track: Crichton offers a steady, relaxed stream of comments that detail what inspired the film, the circumstances behind its making and some interesting self-analysis of his choices and obsessions as a writer/director. It's fascinating stuff for anyone with a serious interest in Hollywood filmmaking. To sum up, the combination of quality transfer and a strong commentary make this disc of Looker a must for fans and well worth checking out for anyone interested in the film.

This movie was indeed a complete work of art with all the trimmings. Top actors such as Albert Finney and the Late Great James Coburn and what special effects we had in those days. As much of a farce as this movie seems to be it does happen everyday. People are brain-washed by television, commercials, and of course internet news. The movie takes a few minutes to warm up but when Albert Finney gets a hold of that "Looker" gun and starts zapping people into hypnotic trances all around him it takes off to an adventure one can't deny. Finney the classic good guy never uses the "Looker" gun to zap the beautiful women around him. Buy this movie and Time After Time and you're in for one enjoyable night.
