Homicide: the Movie

Homicide: The Movie utilizes a 2.0 channel Dolby Surround audio transfer that is surprisingly effective. This track contains plenty of force and moves the sounds well throughout the sound field. The theme song has never sounded better, and it really draws the audience into the story. Also, the poignant soundtrack springs from the speakers with power. Even without the complexity of a 5.1 channel transfer, this disc succeeds in creating an above-average presentation. This full-frame visual transfer nicely conveys the colors of Baltimore in a clear and bright fashion. In the opening scene, the striking red bricks of the city's homes appear impressively. However, Homicide: the Movie's television origins do limit the picture slightly and keep it below the top-notch releases. The presentation works well, but does contain a minor layer of grain at times that probably springs from its source. In terms of extras, this Trimark release fails miserably and misses a chance for insight into this reunion of the heralded series. The only supplement is the film's video trailer, which can be accessed by clicking the Trimark logo. They could have included interviews with the cast and crew, behind-the-scenes footage, or television spots with this release. This disc does have impressive menus, with quick moments from the telefilm, and several subtitle options, but it's not enough for this release.
