TUCSON, Ariz. - Here are this week's hottest home video releases:
A smoldering Liam Neeson plays a recently-fired businessman who becomes ensnared in a shadowy mind game with the focus on identifying someone hiding on a commuter train ride. Neeson snaps into fever-pitched "Taken" mode, ferreting out information while taking down adversaries on the way to uncovering the secret string pullers who have set the Hitchcockian plot into motion. Extras include a pair of featurettes that break down the story.
Jessica Chastain swaggers in a blistering real-life story of Molly Bloom, a woman in her 20s who ran a notorious celebrity and millionaire-filled poker game. As strong as Chastain's performance is, writer/director Aaron Sorkin's Oscar-nominated script is the true star. Fans of Sorkin's other work, such as "The West Wing," "The Newsroom" and "The Social Network" will love the rapidfire patter. For my full review, click here. Extras include a featurette with interviews from Sorkin and Chastain.
