The Package

( 1 )

Overview

Andrew Davis's The Package was one of the neatest thrillers of the last 20 years, complex, well-paced, unpretentious, and economically put together, with a half-dozen first-rate performances at its core. MGM has thought enough of the movie to issue it as a two-sided disc, containing an enhanced letterboxed 1.85-to-1 image on one side and a standard full-screen image on the other, and an insert with unusually full annotation. That's better treatment than the movie ever got when it was out on laserdisc from Orion ...

Overview

Andrew Davis's The Package was one of the neatest thrillers of the last 20 years, complex, well-paced, unpretentious, and economically put together, with a half-dozen first-rate performances at its core. MGM has thought enough of the movie to issue it as a two-sided disc, containing an enhanced letterboxed 1.85-to-1 image on one side and a standard full-screen image on the other, and an insert with unusually full annotation. That's better treatment than the movie ever got when it was out on laserdisc from Orion (who originally produced it); the letterboxed version loses picture material at the top and bottom of the screen, but frames the action in a more claustrophobic and manner that adds to the inherent tension of the story; either side of this DVD looks better than that laserdisc, and this is also one of the better sounding digital discs of its era. The 32 chapters also demonstrate just how much effort someone put into producing this disc, which is one of the bigger bargains on the market -- the only thing it doesn't have is a narrative track by Andrew Davis, who certainly rates one. The original trailer (presented full-screen) is also available, and there's an optional French langauge track or subtitles, for those who can use them.

    Cunning

    With cunning and political violence, the rules of the game have been ratcheted up against Gene Hackman as he does not who is who. In a thriller that bespeaks Enemy of the State, only with Cold War hijinks, there is only one thing to accomplish: survival.
