Even without the veil of nostalgia Clue is a delight. A slightly campier take on Murder by Death it has a star-studded cast bringing the board game to life. Tim Curry and Madeline Kahn lead the delightful cast with surprisingly entertaining turns by underrated Martin Mull and Colleen Camp.
One nice kids today aspect of the film is the realization that the recent trend of turning games such as Ouija and Battleship into movies is hardly a new one. Clue is not just the granddaddy of the genre but is the reigning champ. It is as good as you remember and better than it had to be or should have ever been.
It's great to have Clue finally available in hi-def, and the video transfer on the blu-ray release is quite nice. The colors are deep, details are sharp, and the overall mild film grain is well-suited to the movie. No unnecessary slickness here.
However, the audio disappoints. It's flat (no surround sound), and a bit tinny at times. The sound mixing is off in places (as it was in the original), so there are a few moments where looped audio is very obvious. It would have been nice if they have put some effort into correcting these flaws, and it would have been wonderful if they'd added depth to the sound by bumping it up to surround sound.
The extras are sparse. We get the alternate endings, which can be viewed individually or in "trilogy" sequence, plus the theatrical trailer. That's it. No deleted scenes, no gag reels, no making-of featurettes, no commentaries.
A true fan will love the high quality video (it really is quite beautiful) and can easily tolerate the audio (it's no worse than what's available elsewhere), but will long for even just one more extra.
Acting is great from all of the above. Expertly casted movie. Tim Curry as the butler was amazing, he was my favorite but they all put in great performances evenly balancing comedic moments and serious moments.
This is such a fun movie with comedy, mystery, and interesting dialogue. If you haven't seen it in years, it's still just as good. There are some funny bits, some that are slight chuckles but it least the fun mood is carried throughout. The pacing is just right especially as they move very quickly from run to room and toward the end as the murders are hashed out. If you've never seen it before, hopefully you'll enjoy it too.
