Editorial Reviews

The story of Hank (Billy Bob Thornton), an embittered prison guard working on Death Row who begins an unlikely, but emotionally charged affair with Leticia (Halle Berry), the wife of a man under his watch on The Row. The movie also features Heath Ledger and Peter Boyle. Boyle plays Hank's bigoted, aging father, whose hatred seems to have poisoned his entire family as much as the family business, which working on the prison Death Squad. Ledger plays Hank's son, who is hell-bent on getting out.

If you have to see a realistic and horrifically depressing film with great performances - this is it. This tragedy set in a prison community in the racist south is chock full of surprises and shockers. Thornton's three generational family is a conflictual mess with varying degrees of vicious racism and mental illness. Halle Berry's family fares no better with tremendous loss of everything and everyone in her life. When the two finally meet, there is a sort of acceptance and redemption on both parts, but its terribly painful to watch. Heath Ledger plays Thornton's more sensitive son in an underplayed role. Halle Berry bares her soul and her body with a worthiness Oscar rewarded, only to see her disappear into the "X-Men" again! Berry and Thornton have a torrid sex scene that is barely cut only to have him wake up in the morning with his underwear on - only in America!

Now in this blu-ray edition, the colors, crispness and sound is impeccable. The sound is in DTS 5.1 and extras include, Audio Commentary with Director and Writers, four deleted scenes, the featurettes of `On the set', `Behind the scenes with the producer', cast and crew interviews, music for the film and the theatrical trailer.

Great movie,great acting by Halle Berry and Billy Bob Thornton. She won best actress award in 2001. It is a very disturbing and difficult movie to watch at times,but it will get you glued to your seat.It's about people who's lives will change forever.A prisoner who was on the Death Row and a prison guard Billy Bob Thornton who got involved in relationship with the prisoner's wife and just watch unlikely story evolved.This is a movie you got to see 'all of Halle Berry'. It is a sad story, but good one and will get set in your mind for some time.
Blu ray picture is perfect, but volume had to be turned right up

NOW I SEE HOW HALLE WON AN OSCAR FOR THE MOVIE.SHE WAS EVERYTHING AN ACTRESS SHOULD BE IN A ROLE WHICH IS DRAMATIC,CONVINCING,SEXY AND MAKE YOU THINK DURING THE MOVIE. That love scene was the most passionate, realistic act I've ever seen in a movie. A must see for all.

First I would like to say, "Yes I've had a infatuation for Halle Berry!", but I still give a true review. Monster's Ball was far most life like film that has a true capturing Ahavah of turning hate into love. From a prejudice individual to honoring the beauty of a gorgeous woman. There was much heart-felt sentiment in this film from a mother struggling as a single parent, a son being hated by the father, the father trained in the ways of being a redneck, a mother struggling in poverty, and much more. The film is definitely unrated in sexual matters but being honest that what many of us adults like about the movie but the connection of the sexual matters did give more so amorous and sensual type of love making with a little rough lovemaking, spiced with one of the most gorgeous women in the world Halle Berry. I also love the way Halle was more so virtuous in the film and embraced intimate hairs in the film. The portion of Billy playing the prejudice individual was more realistic and well acted. Honestly the film was excellent!

When I first saw this film, I was amazed at Halle Berry's performance. She really "opened up" with her heart wrenching emotions; that stole the show. She deservedly earn the Oscar that year!Monster's Ball

A rare gem that Hollywood has produced. It has a great cast and good storyline. It is not an easy flick to watch on a saturday afternoon. It has lots of emotion. Billy Bob Thornton played a prison officer with a sour relationship with his son. (Played by Heath Ledger) Heath shoot himself in front of his Dad in the first forty minutes which it is a bit of a waste that his screen time was too little. Halle Berry played wife of the death row prisoner and mother of a kid. Both Billy and Halle deveopled into a relationship after Billy help to send her son to hospital after an accident. You can see Billy changing from a cold hearted person to more human after the relationship started. It is a heart warming movie and do not be surprise that tears may come out of your eyes automatically.
