Packaging / Design

This case looks pretty slick on the outside but when you start to go over it more closely you'll notice some surprises.

The slipcase is EXTREMELY thin and more simular to something you usually see around you're average first press keepcase edition. The slipcase also turns out to be a very tight fit and so far I'm not overly impressed with the packaging.

Inside we are presented with the slightly odd foldout digistack. Now, I actually prefer this to a 3 disc digipack and the digistack quality feels a lot better than the quality of the slipcase (but they could've done a much better job with the digipack artwork in my opinion).

All in all, an OK case, but not as good as you'de expect from the guy who brought us the classic Se7en and Fight Club digis.


Disc contents / Extras

David Fincher usually has had a lot of involvement with the production of the dvd in the past (or so I've heard) and this release has definitely gotten some major attention as well, judging from the features.

There's a massive count of three 3 feature length commentary tracks and a whole bunch of insightful extras.

Surprisingly enough there are no deleted scenes, which pretty much seems like it's mandatory these days... but then again, there's so much else going on here that I'm not particularly sad about this.

And before wrapping this thing up I have got to mention the wonderful menu system (which I think looks pretty much the same on all 3 disc special editions of this film) - This is presented as a 3D blueprint of the house which zooms in and out like a neat little camera trick depending on what submenus you choose.

So in conclusion; a very well stacked set of discs but they're pretty much identical to the other 3 disc editions released in other countries. And so, with this said, there's not a lot to make this release stand out above the others, but it's still well worth it if you're a fan of the film.


EASTER EGGS

On disc 2, enter Pre-Production and continue into the Prep section. Highlight the Safe Cracking School option and press right. A small icon will appear and you can now press enter to see a featurette with security expert Gavin De Becker talking about his role on the film (06m 04s).

On disc 2, enter Production and highlight the Main Menu option and press right to highlight a hidden symbol. Press enter for a featurette with special effects coordinator Joe Viskocil entitled Jodie Foster Breaking A Glass Mirror (02m 13s).

On disc 3, enter Visual Effects and continue to the last page in the section. No highlight the menu entry Arm On Fire and press right to highlight another symbol. Press enter to see a few tests of the CGI fire. (01m 48s)


Sidenotes

A lot of sources claim this set to be a packaged in a digipack, which is not true. The design is not particularly common but is best described as a foldout digistack (look at the photos for details, dummy!).

Yeah, I'm beginning to agree with you on that one, Hooltra. Might have to get the french one too, just to be safe. Quick! Everyone into the DVD ordering room!
