Overview

Michael J. Fox and James Woods star in the action-comedy The Hard Way. Universal has done a nice job of making sure this 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is clear of any intrusive defects or imperfections. Besides the smallest amount of edge enhancement, this image appears to feature solid black levels and bright color patterns. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English. The audio mix on this disc is excellent with fervent use of both the front and rear speakers, making The Hard Way a great movie when complimented by a home theater system. All aspects of the soundtrack are free and clear of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are English and Spanish subtitles. While The Hard Way isn't jam packed with extras, the disc does include a few well-produced supplements. Included on this DVD is a short "Making Of" featurette which sports a few standard interviews with the cast and crew, a music video for the song "Mama Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J, some thin production notes, cast and crew info, and a theatrical trailer for the film.
