Overview

Dragnet

This comic update of Jack Webb's classic deadpan police drama gets a fine presentation for its release on DVD. Dragnet has been given a letterboxed transfer at the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and the image has been enhanced for anamorphic playback on 16 x 9 monitors. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Surround and viewers have a choice of three different sound tracks: the original English version and dubbed tracks in Spanish and French. The disc also features optional Spanish subtitles. Bonus materials appearing on this edition include the original theatrical trailer, notes on the film's production, and biographies of the key cast and crew members.

Dragnet 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Definitely not a 48 hours or BHC clone (of course, if you take the time to watch the movie, this should be clear). This is a great comedy focusing on the 'odd couple' relationship between Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd. There are plenty of one liners. The action is well done, but a lot of it is spoofing movies like 48 hours. It also provides interesting commentary on how society perceives alternative religions (when the movie was released and even today). For anyone familiar with the original Dragnet series, it is pretty funny parody with some good comedy (both physical and spoken) with some light action thrown in.
