I watched the special features DVD first. i do this, as it makes all movies more enjoyable I had no clue this Movie was based on a Video Game when I bought it. No comparing here of one to the other. This stands alone as good fun to watch. The last time a Movie made me jump or flinch was the Godfather way back in 72. The sound man in this Movie has his s**t together. you are in la la land and then all of a sudden as John Madden would say "B o o M". Can't wait for the 9.27.07 release of #3.
