The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc
A couple nights ago I watched for the first time The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc and I really enjoyed everything about it. Even though I really don’t like Medieval era movies or events. Chainmail and knights I can’t stand. I think having Milla Jovovich as the lead and knowing her then now track record I can stand to watch this movie. With that said, I did pick up the Blu-Ray and here’s what I gotta say…
When this film first hit DVD it had one special feature, HBO First Look - The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc. The focus of this extra is more about the history of Joan of Arc than the film. Which is disappointing because I thought this was a good movie and would’ve liked to hear from Milla Jovovich about why she took on this role. As for the Blu-Ray release, you are looking at nothing when it comes to the special features. You think with a rerelease and Milla Jovovich being a top billing movie star you might have gotten something new.
So, even though I bought the Blu-Ray and knowing that the DVD did have one extra, I’m still happy with my purchase. Overall, skip on buying, but do give it a watch. Milla Jovovich was awesome.
