The first film I tried on my new Wharfedale DVD-750 having made it multi region (VERY easy!).

Seems a better film than Armageddon as the story seems more `believable` and more grown up! The asteroid impact scenes were a tribute to modern special effects.

Video and audio quality very good but the DVD only gives you two trailers for extras, so they could have done better here.
