The General's Daughter

Overview

Though not labeled a special edition, Paramount's DVD of The General's Daughter comes very close. For starters, the image is first rate. Framed at the original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, the anamorphic transfer shines with detail. Flesh tones are right on, darks are solid, and colors, while muted for the most part, are distinct.

Overview

Though not labeled a special edition, Paramount's DVD of The General's Daughter comes very close. For starters, the image is first rate. Framed at the original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, the anamorphic transfer shines with detail. Flesh tones are right on, darks are solid, and colors, while muted for the most part, are distinct. The sound, an English 5.1 track, (an English Surround track and a French Surround track are also available) is equally impressive, with liberal use of the surround speakers. There are also a number of supplemental features. The highlight is a scene-specific audio commentary with director Simon West. It's an unusual commentary, with West sounding as though he's simply reading it off of a paper in front of him. Regardless, he makes some interesting observations. The disc also features a 20-minute behind-the-scenes featurette with cast and crew interviews that is just a step above the standard fluff piece. In addition, there are four deleted scenes and an alternate ending, all of which include commentary from West. Other than the unnecessary ending, the deleted scenes would have fit well in the film, but certainly would have changed the focus in some ways. Rounding things out are two trailers. Though the critics panned the film, overall this is a fine disc, worth owning or at least renting.
