The audio transfer is DTSHD 5.1 and is very well done with full use of your surround system, including sub. The score sometimes overshadows the foley fx and directionality of the discreet audio channels, but, overall, a very fine transfer.
I bought the BluRay on sale at Walmart for $7 so it was more than worth it. Other than BD LIve, which I think is a waste of a feature found on many Blu Rays, there were no extras, no deleted scenes or any thing other than the hated trailers for other films.
All my movie reviews are of this nature and focus only on the quality of the transfer to BluRay so check them and see if they are of help as well.
Hopefully, this review has been of some help to you in determining your purchase, hope I am on the correct path with a review of the transfer quality as opposed to providing plot summaries.

You bet it is -- and the stunts will leave you gasping in wonder. From Mathis's near disembowelment by a thwocking chopper blade to Travolta's frantic attempts to catch his getaway pilot's attention, it's all fantastic. Howie Long is also fantastic as Kelly, one of Travolta's goons.
All in all, quite spetacular. I recommend it to everyone, but get your snacks before it starts because you won't want to miss a minute!
The DVD is fine for some TV's and not others. I have a TV with a 32" screen and the DVD fills the screen pretty well.
My girlfriend has a TV with a huge screen and the DVD picture makes you think you're watching a "little bitty" picture in the middle of the screen. It was unwatchable as far as I'm concerned.
The Blu Ray, on the other hand, fills both screens just fine. It's still in letterbox format even on my girlfriend's huge screen, but it fills nearly all of the screen and is just the right size to be able to watch and enjoy the movie.
So, buyer beware if you opt for the DVD instead of the Blu Ray and you own a big screen TV.
Other than that there's no need for me to review the movie. It's full of action and cliffhanger scenes, just don't watch it too critically. I consider it for all intents and purposes to be a Saturday-afternoon western with a modern setting and situations. It's one of my favorite movies of all time, so I'm very biased as to how good it is!
Yes, there are some plot errors in the movie, but if you just watch it for the action and adventure, it has several breathtaking scenes.
