Overview

One of the earliest to make it to market from New Line Home Video's Platinum Series, The Mask offers good mastering work in both the picture and sound departments, with a 1.85:1 non-anamorphic image that has excellent colors, even in the trickier scenes, as well as a sharp, but not overly crisp image with few compression artifacts. The transfer serves the computer-generated special effects fairly well. The soundtrack is fairly straightforward Dolby Surround, clear and uncluttered, though given to the usual "sting" effects. The single-layer, double sided disc includes both widescreen and full-frame versions, as well as the French soundtrack, which is actually quite amusing. The disc also includes two deleted scenes, director's commentary, trailer, and cast biographies. Of the deleted scenes, one is more or less complete, including subtitles and music, while the other is missing effects and various shots; both are far from presentation quality. Russell's commentary is low-key, but more than adequate for taking viewers through the details of making the film; those lending an ear to this track will learn a lot about the film and the decisions made in the course of getting it to the screen.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Jim Carrey's comic schtick is somewhere between Robin Williams' schizophrenic hamming and the ridiculous physical comedy of Jerry Lewis. Though the pure stupidity of his 1994 breakthrough Ace Ventura: Pet Detective proved popular, it was his summer follow-up, The Mask, that began to win over critics. With the release of Dumb and Dumber that December, Carrey had become one of Hollywood's hottest stars -- in one calendar year. Directed by the largely unknown Chuck Russell, The Mask's real stars are the computer effects designed by Industrial Light and Magic. Many compared the eye-popping "masking" of Carrey to Tex Avery's wacky Warner Brothers cartoons. Carrey's reputation as an actor and as a popular icon has continued to grow since the film's release, as has that of co-star Cameron Diaz, who made her impressive big screen debut in this film.
