Running parallel with this dark yet irresistible adventure, told in flashback vignettes, is the almost inexplicable sight of Jamal winning every challenge on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?," a strong showing that leads to a vicious police interrogation. As Jamal explains how he knows the answer to every question on the show as the result of harsh events in his knockabout life, the chaos of his existence gains shape, perspective and soulfulness. The film's violence is offset by a mesmerizing exotica shot and edited with a great whoosh of vitality. Boyle successfully sells the story's most unlikely elements with nods to literary and cinematic conventions that touch an audience's heart more than its head. --Tom Keogh

|Not quite as well made as 'City of God'||
The ending of "Slumdog" is a tribute to Bollywood films, whcih usually have a showy and uplifting finale, after a brutal and dramatic experience. I thought it was fitting, unexpected and very well-done. "City of God" is a great film, but we don't need the same film done...

|Replacement dvd received TODAY!||
I just received my Slumdog DVD today and it was great! I can't believe how quickly I got this considering I just talked to the customer service rep yesterday. Thank you Fox!

|Problems playing the disc?||
I too have bought two different copies of the blu-ray version of Slumdog and neither one has been able to load on my blu-ray player. I've never had problems with any other blu-ray disc.
