The Whistle Blower

The Whistle Blower

Director: Simon Langton Cast: Michael Caine, James Fox, Nigel Havers

DVD (Pan & Scan)


Simon Langton directs Michael Caine in the thriller The Whistle Blower, which comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame transfer. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. This is a solid release from MGM/UA that should be of interest to any genre enthusiast of Michael Caine fan.
