Wild Things (2009)

1st January 2010

In the sprawling super rich Californian yachting enclave of Blue Bay lies a despicable tail of revenge, sex and murder.

Suzie and Kelly both fancy one of their school teachers, the hansom and successful Sam Lombardo, and will do anything to get him to go out with them, even washing his filthy car. This results in an interesting combination of water and t-shirt, if you know what I mean. When her attempts fail, Kelly concocts an indecent assault story. The police are not entirely convinced by her testimony, but he is suspended from school pending an enquiry.

Desperate to get his job back he employs attorney Ken Bowden, the only man who will attempt to go up against the all powerful and rich Ryan family. I can't tell you anymore of the story as it will just give the plot away. Let's just say that there is money, murder and double crosses by the bucket load, and by the people you least expect.

A decent film, and region two disc that promised so much, has been completely ruined by Entertainment in Video. It only contains, like many of their other titles, a pro-logic soundtrack and a mere 12 chapters. The picture, although bright, is grainy, suffers from artifacts and only just better than VHS quality. Scandalous, they should be ashamed of themselves.

However, a Dolby Digital, and even (spit) MPEG, soundtrack along with a better film transfer must be available as the Australian region four edition is far, far superior than the pathetic region two attempt. Obviously, the 5.1 soundtrack is a vast improvement over the pro-logic version with the ambient and haunting music surrounding you in brilliant digital clarity. The picture is also a vast improvement with a much clearer and colourful picture than the region two edition.

There's even different extras on the region four edition, although it lists Interviews on the box there are none and the region two edition does have that Making of featurette missing from this version.

I'm not sure whether this version is identical to the region one version, but you should definitely not opt for the poorer region two edition. However, there is a fly in the ointment. Unlike most of the newer films, this region four edition is only encoded as such and you'll need a multi-region player to view the film

The plot twists come thick and fast, even during the end credits, so make sure you don't switch off, just keep watching until the bitter end. It really is a great film, but perhaps only something you can only watch once. However, there is one particular scene in a swimming pool which will get repeat viewing!
