Overview

Dead Man Walking

Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon star in the powerful prison drama Dead Man Walking. MGM has done only a passable job on this 1.85:1 non-anamorphic widescreen transfer. Aside of being non-anamorphic, this image often suffers from a darkness in the picture and some excessive grain and dirt. However, most of the colors appear solid and bright with the black levels generally well saturated. A 1.33:1 full frame version is available on side B. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in English and French. Much like the video presentation, the audio portions of this disc are only mediocre at best. Dead Man Walking is a film that would have benefited greatly from a new Dolby 5.1 remix. Sadly, fans are left with this flat and lifeless soundtrack instead. Also included on this disc are Spanish subtitles. Extra features are limited to a very enticing commentary track by writer/director Tim Robbins, who discusses many aspects on the production of the film, and a single theatrical trailer for the movie.

I recently just watched Dead Man Walking for the first time, I enjoyed this film even though it was very disturbing for me. The fact that this movie was based on a true story is what bothers me the most. At the same time of feeling hatred for Sean Penns character you also become emotionally attached, since they give the story from the ciminal's point of view. I strongly recommend this movie, for anyone who likes to see from the other's point of view.

Sean Penn as the amoral rapist-murderer is remarkable in his capacity to play different parts. You really hate the man yet know of the barbaric think that's going to happen to him.
