Brad Pitt's latest is equal parts mob thriller and a lesson in modern economics...
Brad Pitt plays against type as a mob hit man in this darkly comic and very violent neo-noir thriller-cum-political-allegory from the director of The Assassination of Jesse James. Despite updating the action to play against the 2008 US presidential election, the film remains most squarely rooted in '70s cinema – a fact reflected in this disc's dark and grainy AVC 2.40:1 1080p imagery. Much of the DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix is given over to dialogue, but it also knows when to cut loose (such as the bone-crunching blows during Markie's beating). Seven short interviews are the only extras.
