My Thoughts:
As most of you know... I am a big fan of Sandra Bullock. So when I first saw the trailer for this film I couldn't wait to add it to my collection. I never seen this film before today. And I must say... I did enjoy it. Though I have to admit... I was expecting a little more from it then what I got. I think in the case of this one I let the hype get to me a little. Though I am not trying to complain... definitely worth the time put in to watch it.

I have the DVD/Blu-ray Combo of this film... took the opportunity to watch the Blu-ray disc for this viewing. The sites and sounds was fantastic. And the story was interesting. But there was just something about the trailer and all they hype that made me expect a little more from it.

My Rating:

I have had the BD for over a week, and I have resisted the temptation to watch it immediately. I'm trying to keep it for a little while in hope that my expectations will cool off a bit. Don't know if it will work. It may have the opposite effect...  :-[

Bought my copy because I got it cheap on Amazon Lightning-Deals (€ 9,97), but in fact all I am expecting from this one is to hear Sandra wheeze, groan and scream.
