Any Given Sunday Directors Cut (Blu-ray)

Life is a contact sport and football is life when three-time academy award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone and a dynamic acting ensemble explore the fortunes of the Miami Sharks in Any Given Sunday. At the 50-year line of this gridiron cosmos is Al Pacino as Tony D'Amato, the embattled Sharks coach facing a full-on blitz of team strife plus a new, marketing-savvy sharks owner (Cameron Diaz) who's sure Tony is way too old school. An injured quarterback (Dennis Quaid), a flashy, bull-headed backup QB (Jamie Foxx), a slithery team doctor (James Woods) and a running back with an incentive-laden contract (LL Cool J) also provide some of the stories that zigzag like diagrams in a playbook. and throughout, there's the awesome spectacle of motion, sound and action orchestrated by Stone.

This was truly an excellent film. This movie is Oliver Stone's best since Platoon. The fast-moving and dizzying cinemaphotography fits the high adrenaline atmosphere of the professional football world well. The film is also perfectly cast. Pacino gives life to the head coach, and Cameron Diaz's clearly most intense role as the team's owner is believeable. James Woods gives an excellent performance as the team doctor, who doesn't really seem to care about anyone but himself. Jamie Foxx has a breakthrough dramatic role as the new hotshot quarterback, whose ritualistic vomiting adds humor to the movie. With his performance, we find out Foxx really can act. LL Cool J, also puts through a convincing performance as the team's running back. Dennis Quaid doesn't really do much as the former QB with injury problems except help to develop Pacino's character. An outstanding cast, that features Charlton Heston as the football comissioner, and Ann-Margaret as Cameron Diaz's alcoholic mother. Former pro football players Jim Brown and Lawrence Taylor pop up as members of the team. I recommend it highly. This is possibly the best sports movie ever made.

Oliver Stone once again manages to put together an insightful masterpiece and despite American football as its main feature, this film is intensely entertaining and with a hot hip hop/rap/r&B soundtrack along with an impressive A list cast, Any Given Sunday can't go wrong. Al Pacino as the coach is godd, as he always is, but I found the real stars to be Jamie Foxx and the always goregeous Cameron Diaz. Foxx who usually is the comic relief, played it straight and gives in an oscar-worthy performance as Willy Beamen, the team's key player after favourite Dennis Quaid is injured. Although occasionally his character is a bastard, he serves up an hilarious music video, an intense performance and clearly has no problem getting his gear off, Foxx is bound to go places. Diaz was another key player in this flick, playing a tough as nails, take-no-crap owner of Pacino's team, and although usually sweet, the long smile is barely seen as she plays it straight and gets through to the cast and audiences, she is someone you don't want to mess with. Besides Pacino, Foxx, Diaz and Quaid (whose barely seen), the cast is rounded off with James Woods (another top star in a barely seen role), Lauren Holly, Elizabeth Berkley, Matthew Modine, Ann Margeret, Charlton Heston and rapper LL Cool J (showing he can act). With the shaky camera work adding to the film's realism this is one of the hottest films to date and should be seen by everyone from 15 above. The excessive language, graphic violence and shocking amount of nudity (I warn you when Diaz goes to the locker room prepare for a shock with a football player - you'll soon see what I mean) only allow it suitable for mature audiences.

I enjoy this movie and have had the standard DVD in my collection for a long time. Just got the BluRay version and must say that I am greatly disappointed in the transfer. I won't get into the ad nausium summaries of the plot that so many here insist on writing about, just the quality of the disc. Here is a movie filled with crowd scenes, party scenes and, of course, multiple football scenes full of crashes, body blows and a conundrum of other audio ambiences and yet the quality of the audio mixing is downright lousy. The surround channels are rarely used and for a movie of this nature, that is downright criminal. A movie like this should have perfect audio mixing to the point of being a demo disc yet, other than the center and front left and rights(and not very much of those even) there really is no surround mixing. In addition, the dialogue channels is very poorly leveled with the other channels. This made it difficult to hear the dialogue at times as it was fighting the soundtrack which was mixed too high and hot. The video transfer was a B at best. Colors were nicely presented with no bleeding or stair stepping but there was considerable video noise in some scenes while almost none in others. The sauna scene towards the end of the film had a great deal of video noise which you might not see due to the steam but it was most definitely there.
On a positive note, the blu ray dvd has a literal ton of extras included deleted scenes, extended scenes, even audition scenes. The weird thing is that once a extra was finished, the DVD did not go back to the Extras menu but went straight to the movie again making you have to go back to the menu and navigate to the extras and pick another. The worst interactive menu I have ever come across.

First off, I want to let you know that I love football and movies, but am not an expert on either subject, just to let you know what kind of person this review is coming from.
Yes, the movie is 157 minutes long, but let me tell you, it's never boring. I disagree with many here in that I liked that visuals and film style that Oliver Stone used. I loved the little things he puts in a scene, especially the final play: when Beamen is looking into the endzone and you see lightning and an old player diving into the endzone, things like that. Of course, the performances are incredible, and it's a huge cast. Look for special cameos from NFL players and coaches, and of course Charlton Heston as the Commissioner.
I also like how the film starts out with a game, getting you into the action quickly. And then of course there's the length of the games. It's not just a two minute highlight, well except for the Monsoon Bowl. The first game last 20 minutes and the last is somewhere between 30 and 40. The pregame and halftime speeches are well written too.
In all, it has your basic, not too groundbreaking script, but a great cast, great visuals and sound, and exciting football sequences (the best I've ever seen). I recommend this one!
