Mr. Nice Guy
New Line Cinema / 1996 / 87 Mins / Rated PG-13


MOVIE
Filmed in Melbourne this is the story of Jackie a celebrity chef who turns hero to protect a young reporter who has secretly filmed a drug deal and murder and now the bad guys are after them both.

Watch the people and action fly. If you are after 90 minutes of no-brainer action and fun, there are worse movies you could watch

VIDEO
This transfer is very soft and has quite a few film artifacts present as well as MPEG artifacts. Colors seemed muted also. Shadow detail was acceptable.

No MPEG artifacts were present at all. The original film print is free from defects.

Mr. Nice Guy is framed at 2:35:1 and is 16:9 enhanced. There is a 4:3 version on the flip side.

This is an dual sided, single layer disc. With the original aspect on one side and the 4:3 transfer on the other.

AUDIO
The audio is encoded in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is a very good surround track. Dialog was clear and the surround speakers were used very effectively. The .1 channel was used to underscore explosions and other than that was dormant.
EXTRAS
A light selection of extras from New Line

Extras Include:
Theatrical Trailer:
A sensational trailer. DD5.1 framed at 2:35:1, it sells the movie well and is enjoyable.

Other than a Jackie Chan bio and filmography there are no other extras.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Jackie Chan fans need only apply.
