Gun Shy appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. This became a strong visual presentation.
Overall sharpness worked well. A few interiors seemed a little soft, but those remained the exception to the rule. The image lacked signed of moiré effects or jaggies, and neither edge haloes nor print flaws marred the image.
To the surprise of no one, the palette favored orange and teal. The hues seemed well-rendered for the film’s visual intentions.
Blacks offered good depth and richness, while shadows seemed smooth. Low-light shots presented accurate visuals with just the right touch of opacity. The transfer looked very good.
Given the movie’s action orientation, I thought the DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack seemed a little low-key. Still, it kicked to life at times, mainly during the occasional action scenes. These added good movement around the room, but they didn’t appear often enough to make a huge impact.
Otherwise, the soundscape focused on music and general atmosphere. Those elements used the speakers in a satisfying manner, even if they didn’t bring out a lot of pizzazz.
Audio quality worked fine. Music appeared full and warm, while speech seemed natural and concise.
Effects provided accurate material with good low-end kick at times. Nothing here excelled, but the soundtrack became more than acceptable.
The Rock Star, The Pirate and the Cast of Gun Shy goes for eight minutes, 49 seconds and provides comments from director Simon West and actors Antonio Banderas, Martin Dingle Wall, Mark Valley, Olga Kurylenko and Ben Cura. “Pirate” looks at story/characters as well as cast and performances. It provides little more than promotional goop.
We also get a music montage. Set to the song “Just Who Can I Be”, this shows movie clips. It’s forgettable.
The disc opens with ads for War On Everyone, Skiptrace, Black Butterfly and The Hitman’s Bodyguard. No trailer for Gun Shy appears here.
A mix of action and comedy, Gun Shy flops in both regards. Idiotic, overacted and utterly devoid of entertainment value, the film goes nowhere. The Blu-ray offers pretty good picture and audio but it lacks substantial supplements. Nothing about this movie succeeds.
