Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Movie good - vudu transmission poor This movie is good - I had seen it years ago and rented it specifically for a research project on the subject matter. The only way I could find it (movie) was to have it streamed to my laptop. The audio was such poor quality that we missed at least 50% of the dialogue. It was very frustrating and disappointing. I recommend the film but do not recommend downloading it via the online option unless you have high quality equipment that can adjust for the poor quality that is provided. 03/25/2012
