After watching The Better Angels, it comes to no surprise this not only was produced by Terrence Malick but was written and directed by his editor of To the Wonder and Knight of Cups, A.J. Edwards. Full disclosure, I am not a Malick fan and Edwards more or less copies his mentor’s style making for a downright dull and boring film.

No features were included.

VIDEO – 4.0/5 | AUDIO – 3.5/5

The Better Angels is presented with a 16×9 enhanced 2.40 widescreen aspect ratio and shown in stark black & white. The Dolby Digital 5.1 track is fairly standard showcasing the mostly dialogue-driven film with a minimalistic soundtrack.

OVERALL – 2.0/5

After watching The Better Angels, it comes to no surprise this not only was produced by Terrence Malick but was written and directed by his editor of To the Wonder and Knight of Cups, A.J. Edwards. Full disclosure, I am not a Malick fan and Edwards more or less copies his mentor’s style making for a downright dull and boring film that, in spite of a short 95-minute running time, felt far longer than that. This DVD release is pretty basic with no features and standard video and audio transfers.
