Reviewed by: Angus Wolfe MurrayRead Angus Wolfe Murray's film review of The Faculty
The picture on this Region 2 DVD is a nice 1.85:1 widescreen transfer, while the 5:1 Dolby Digital audio should pack an effective punch on suitable equipment.
Unfortunately there are absolutely no extras whatsoever; not even a desultory talent bio or theatrical trailer. Though the film has interactive menus and direct scene access, Warner Bros. and Dimension Home Video ought to realise that these do not count as 'special features', rather being a standard part of a DVD package.
The lack of extras is a real shame, as one imagines the director and writer would have had a lot to say about the film. Perhaps they were just too busy with [film]Spy Kids[/film[ and Dawson's Creek.
While The Faculty is an enjoyable little film that's worth renting, the lack of supplemental materials makes it hard to recommend buying this DVD.Reviewed on: 18 Mar 2007
