"Incendiary" (Blu-ray)

IncendiarySynopsis

In London, a young woman (Williams) is having an affair with someone she met in a bar, Jasper Black (McGregor). Her husband works for the London Police, defusing explosive devices.

During a soccer game, terrorists set off several bombs, and her husband is a casualty.

Jasper's job gives him access to video tape of the people in the stands during the game, and he discovers one of the bombers there.

It turns out the police have known about the bomber for some time, and Jasper helps her in an effort to find out why the police had not done something about the terrorist before. However, the police are resistant to uncover their true motives, and they will go to extremes to keep their secret hidden.

Commentary

The title is exciting, the cover art looks like it will be a good movie, but it's not. In fact, this "action" film is one of the most boring I have ever seen.

Technical

The image is reasonably sharp, but the surround envelopment is not very impressive.

Extras

These include only the Still Galleries and the Trailer.
