Last night I popped this Blu-ray in to check out the deleted scenes and I made it through about ten minutes worth before I just couldn’t stay awake any longer. There are about 50 minutes of deleted and extended scenes on this thing and from those first ten minutes it seems like the cuts were a very good decision. For starters, they add nothing to the movie, particularly an extended introduction to Logan Lerman‘s character where Jon Bernthal acts even more like an animal toward him, plus the editing is quite bad as David Ayer clearly didn’t have the coverage he needed to cut the scenes together with the extended material. Nevertheless, I find this to be a solid movie, and one I do intend on rewatching and I’m going to dig a little deeper into those deleted scenes and if there’s more to say I’ll probably write up a full review.
I received a copy of this DVD and I’m interested in checking it out as director Nacho Vigalondo sets out to tell a thriller purely from the perspective of one desktop computer. I’m intrigued.
