Great movie, Ultraviolet is awful.
on December 27, 2011
I love this movie, and the image and sound quality are outstanding, but enough about that.
What really ruins it, is this new DRM scheme, Ultraviolet, which is completely useless. I am sorry, but a "digital copy" that requires you to sign on with not one, but two different services, and that, at the end of the day, is nothing more than a highly restrictive, DRM-laden STREAMING service, requiring an Internet connection every time you want to watch the movie, is a total waste of money in my opinion. But they won't be getting any more money from me for that Ultraviolet crap in any DVD I decide to purchase in the future. I did not mind paying extra for DVDs containing a digital copy, because I could then download it to iTunes and, that way, I would have a copy of the movie ready to put into my iPhone or iPad, or stream from my Mac using AirPlay directly from iTunes, now, none of that will work, and frankly, a system that requires you to jump through so many hoops just to watch a movie is not worth it, in my opinion. I only gave it three stars because it also comes with a plain DVD copy.
