In short: 188.8.131.52 is one of those movies that is heavy on style, but altogether light on substance. I know I've seen better movies before, and I know I'll come across superior motion pictures again. In the meantime, this'll pass as slightly below-standard film fodder in my book; an item that is destined to be forgotten in only a matter of months. I'm clearly not the only one who felt that way, though, since it took well over two years for 184.108.40.206 to get released on home video in the U.S. via Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
220.127.116.11 (do you have any idea how much I hate typing that title out?) hits the Ray of Blu in a satisfying 1080p transfer that preserves the film's 2.35:1 aspect ratio. A good portion of the flick takes place during the night, both in the UK and in the US. You wouldn't think that would mean anything, but it does here: the UK night has a sleeker look and feel to it than the US one. But both transition to High-Def admirably, with little to no signs of debris of DNR scrubbing. Likewise, the movie's colors and black levels are solid and robust (a bit on the cool side in some scenes), and the detail is as sharp as can be.
A DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack is at your beck and call here, and the music/sound effects-heavy mix certainly won't disappoint anyone hoping to hear some noise. Subtitles are provided in English (SDH), French, and Spanish. A very reserved selection of bonus materials — a fairly skimpy behind-the-scenes featurette and a trailer — are also included, though it should be abundantly clear at this point that neither item had the slightest inkling of sweeping me off my feet after having viewed the somewhat-less-than-so-so feature film itself.
If you're looking for a film to fold some laundry to, I can sincerely recommend 18.104.22.168. Otherwise, rent it for the copious nudity and panty shots. But don't expect anything else.
