The fourth “Mission: Impossible” is arguably the best in the series and the best action film of 2011. Paramount Home Entertainment has just released the video version in the U.S. It has a gorgeous transfer (on Blu-ray disc, at least), rich sound, and a great selection of extras — kind of.
That is: everything about it is first-rate — except the marketing, which creates a problem that requires a warning. There are three versions you can purchase: the normal, one-disc DVD has only a few extras; the standard Blu-ray package (one BD with the film and a few more extras, plus one DVD with only the film); and a slightly more expensive three-disc version (one BD and one DVD, each with the film only, and a second BD with roughly twice as many extras).
Clearly, if you love the film, you want the three-disc edition. The catch is that it's a “Best Buy exclusive.” So any fans who didn't know this and who bought the disc elsewhere, well, tough luck, you bought the wrong one.
