Regarding Henry

review by Zach B.

 

 

 

Henry Turner (Harrison Ford) is a stern, powerful New York lawyer who seems to have it all, even if his methods and attitude is questionable. But after Henry is shot twice, Henry does not remember his life and cannot talk or speak. Henry now must begin a totally different life, and with the help of his wife (Annette Bening) and daughter, Henry has to face a new and very difficult road.

Fun Facts: Jeffrey Abrams wrote this movie. Jeffrey Abrams is actually J.J. Abrams, creator of the TV shows "Alias" and "Felicity." Also, a youthful John Leguiazamo plays the man who shoots Henry.

 

 

The movie is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, but it looks a bit less than that since I noticed some slight windowboxing at the sides. Not that it matters anyway, since this is one terrible transfer. Colors are muted and appear dull. Fleshtones look incredibly pale, the transfer is excessively grainy and faded while the print is just plain dirty - specks, scratches, blemishes, dirt pieces... you name it, it's on there (and a lot of all of them). The only good thing I can say about this transfer is that the detail is decent, but not great. Too many flaws here, and sad to say, they're all distracting and make the movie pretty hard to watch.

 

 

The film features a 5.1 English Dolby Digital track, but it really doesn't need it. The film is dialogue driven, and the dialogue sounds clear. Subwoofer use is very sporadic, and the only time the soundtrack really comes to life is with Hans Zimmer's score and the occasional surround, like big crowd scenes. Other than that, 5.1 doesn't help this movie - you can get fine with the included English Dolby Surround track. Also included on this DVD release is a French Stereo track, English subtitles and English closed captions.

 

 

As empty as Henry's head after his big accident.

 

 

Fans of the movie only need to apply if they must own this on DVD. No care went into this DVD at all... but then again, this isn't a modern classic or anything of that nature.
