Special Features

25th HOUR: NEW Audio Commentary By Director Spike Lee And Actor Edward Norton

Editorial Reviews

Academy Award(R)-nominee Edward Norton (Best Actor, 1999, AMERICAN HISTORY X) heads an amazing all-star cast in the critically acclaimed Spike Lee (SUMMER OF SAM, DO THE RIGHT THING) film 25th HOUR. In 24 short hours Monty Brogan (Norton) goes to prison for seven long years. Once a king of Manhattan, Monty is about to say good-bye to the life he knew -- a life that opened doors to New York's swankest clubs but also alienated him from the people closest to him. In his last day on the outside, Monty tries to reconnect with his father (Brian Cox, THE BOURNE IDENTITY), and gets together with two old friends, Jacob (Philip Seymour Hoffman, ALMOST FAMOUS) and Slaughtery (Barry Pepper, THE GREEN MILE). And then there's his girlfriend, Naturelle (Rosario Dawson, MEN IN BLACK 2), who might (or might not) have been the one who tipped off the cops. Monty's not sure of much these days, but with time running out, there are choices to be made as he struggles to redeem himself in the 25th hour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two among this director's finest works July 29, 2014
Verified Purchase
At the end of 2010, the 2002 film, "25th Hour" (a movie which was snubbed by the Oscars) made it onto multiple high-ranking critics lists representing The Best of the Decade. It's a great character study, morality tale, all-in-one-day narrative and a notable New York movie in the tradition of Scorsese and Lumet.

"He Got Game" is a beautiful father-son drama about the love of basketball, without really showing much of the game itself. It's also about the unfair pressure a young prodigy may face when they're being tempted by rags-to-riches promises. Lee's use of Aaron Copland american frontier music against the atmosphere of Coney Island and basketball courts is as genius as Kubrick setting a waltz by Strauss to space travel.

Two of Spike Lee's most riveting films that display his range of versatility. The 25th hour is an often overlooked film that gave the cast enough room to shine throughout; the story takes a unique approach to the subject at hand as it focuses on the events leading up to the big day. The blu ray quality is a great improvement from the original dvd. The special features are the same as dvd but adds new commentary. He Got Game is well written and directed masterpiece of a sports drama that stands on its own in that genre. The blu ray quality is a definitive upgrade from the dated dvd. New audio commentary is attached, unfortunately no other extras which is a shame for a blu ray release in 2014 of an older film. Highly recommended and a reasonable price.

This is a collection great for anyone that is very angry and racist. The directing is horrible, story is horrible, but the actors are ok. I give it one star just because of the actors. The storylines are totally racist and anger filled.
