Editor's note: The high-contrast, bleak visual design looks stunning on Blu-ray and the bleak grayness is sharp and fully detailed. The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 audio track fills the surround system effectively with explosions and gunfire. Director's cut is only a mere three minutes longer, including a little more violence and nudity. Maximum Movie Mode, first implemented on the WATCHMEN Blu-ray, is Warner's unique director's show and tell, with McG standing between two screens and discussing behind-the-scenes footage and the final version.
