4.0 out of 5 stars How Much Can You Take? February 19, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monster's Ball (Blu-ray) March 22, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing and compeling January 19, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
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

5.0 out of 5 stars It has a great cast and good storyline October 9, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.
