Chapter Highlights
 Ch. 1:  It starts with beautiful views of Ireland. There are some gunshots at the beginning which is followed by some hard hitting music which sounds great.
 Ch. 2:  A Teriffic gunfight with uzis and machine guns filled with bullet hits that sound great. Nine minutes into the chapter a helecopter passes over from front to back. Also in an interior shot you can feel the bass rumble from the helecopter overhead.
 Ch. 28:  The score comes alive followed by a subway train which seems to enter the room.
 Ch. 30:  For the first minute and a half, this chapter is a phenomenal showcase of sound effects: water dripping, car doors opening and slamming shut, guns cocking and hitting the ground, etc. It's great, in the middle of an abbandoned warehouse everything echos. Then 3:15 into the chapter, an explosion rocks the place and gunplay ensues.
 Ch. 32:  Seven minutes in there are some chilling symbol hits that really sets the mood.
 Strengths:  The Score by James Horner is excellent.
 Weaknesses:  Not to many sounds comes from the surrounds although the sound is great from the fronts. No special features unless you count the theatrical trailer in pro logic.
 Running Time:  Approx. 111 minutes
 Synopsis:  Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt star in this harrowing thriller about an IRA gunman who draws an American family into the crossfire or terrorism.
 Other Thoughts:  An extremely exciting thriller. I really enjoyed it.
