Nearly 20 years later, the film has plenty of gas in the chainsaw and just as funny as ever if you like your humor dark and bloody. The LFE channel doesn't really get much room to boom - a latter-end explosion gets a brief blip - but there's still a rich undercurrent courtesy of some activity in that department. I honestly could not envision DiCaprio the way Bale owned the role of Bateman and what he brought to not only the psychosis of the character, but its physicality too. I'm including the screenshots from both discs just fro the sake of being absolutely thorough, but don't get it twisted.

The disc presents a native 3840 x 2160p resolution image in the film's original theatrical aspect ratio of widescreen 2. Just don't make the mistake of grabbing a copy of American Psycho 2, you need that in your life about as much as Paul Allen needs an ax.This probably is one of my favorite uses of object-based activity, the mix uses the vertical channels for Patrick Bateman's narrations. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Through it all, Christian Bale delivers the performance that arguably helped make his career what it is today ( Reign of Fire notwithstanding). Selfish, arrogant, self-obsessed with delusions of grandeur; yet they rarely genuinely contribute to society and are all essentially copies of each other, some much so that mistaken identity is a key theme of the film. The only thing it doesn't have are those extra little interviews and stuff (including the trailer) from the old French disc; so maybe hang onto that if you have it.

If time hasn't exactly been kind toward the novel -- few remember it for its fantastic prose or complex storytelling -- 'American Psycho' remains one of the most infamous publishing stories in modern history. While it received mostly kind notices from critics upon its release, it was marketed as a thriller/horror film, even though the murder sequences are not the film's highlights, nor are they particularly suspenseful or gory. The film has a very Hitchcock-meets-Kubrick feeling of sterility, with a great deal of whites and other clean surfaces, accented by hard blue and deep red. Several years before his Batman trilogy, Christian Bale brought the enigmatic psycho, Patrick Bateman, to life in a superior adaptation of American Psycho. The acting is generally excellent, Christian Bale able to portray both sides of Bateman flawlessly, with similar turns from Reese Witherspoon, Willem Defoe and Jared Leto.

The Killer edition essentially found the extra picture by lifting the tiny mattes on all four sides; and the blus seemed to use the same transfer as the 2003 DVD, though it naturally benefits in clarity and compression by being an HD disc. But there were other little changes that made me feel like the filmmakers had possibly not understood the book. It took years to eventually trickle down to Mary Hannon, who'd previously directed the excellent I Shot Andy Warhol, and Christian Bale right off of Velvet Goldmine and a small role in the Kevin Kline version of A Midsummer Night's Dream. a clearer understanding of how to attain an "accurate" accounting of the original theatrical experience. The film also enjoys a nice Dolby Vision HDR push that breaths a lot of new life into the film's color pallet.
