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

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT MOVIE December 27, 2009
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Ambiguously Inconclusive November 10, 2010
By C.G.S.
Format:Blu-ray
Very thematic and thought provoking film carried on by actors who fulfilled their acting roles tremendously. I enjoyed the realism of emotions and sometimes apathy embodied by all the characters. Characters personalities and emotions really became tangible when necessary. Plot line evolved very well and was original, with a few surprising twists and turns here and there. Real life problems, such as racism, abuse, obesity, apathy and poverty all solidified for a great storyline. However, the ending was very far fetched and unrealistic. It's hardly to believe Leticia wouldn't confront Hank immediately after discovering the drawings her former executed boyfriend drew. This kind of left a bitter feeling of inconclusiveness towards the film. No matter how Hank responds to the accusations and what follows, as a spectator, you need to see that transpire. It was almost torture not to see what transpired after that because you know Leticia would confront Hank, you just don't know when and I think this should of been included in the film to bring closure.

I have seen this movie before, maybe it was on broadcast TV. Now I've seen it on blu-ray. The movie is mostly depressing. It takes place in a small southern town. Read more

This is a very interesting film starring Billy Bob Thornton and Halle Barry. Very erotic and emotional. All the better in Blu-ray format.
