One could call Code 46 the Minority Report (which also co-starred Samantha Morton) on a stricter budget but more compact story and although I probably give the edge to MR mainly due to the direction from Spielberg, this is still a nice little future thriller featuring great performances by Tim Robbins and Samantha Morton.

|Code 46 is a sci-fi thriller centered on William Geld (TIM ROBBINS), an insurance investigator assigned to track down and dismantle a passport forgery ring, falls for the ringleader Maria Gonzales (SAMANTHA MORTON), leading to further complications when one of Maria’s customers is found dead.|
SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5
|Theatrical Trailer (2:01)|
VIDEO – 4.0/5
|Code 46 debuts on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films, presented in the film’s original 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture quality actually is moderately impressive showing off sharp detail and colors appear to be in keeping with the film’s futuristic and thriller tone with a mixture of bright colors and darker elements in other scenes. I didn’t notice any substantial ailments like dust marks and scratches so it appears to be a well maintained transfer.|
AUDIO – 3.75/5
|The disc comes with a heavy but satisfactory DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track and for a movie like this, in spite of having thriller-centric scenes, is mostly dialogue and/or a score, by The Free Association (which apparently included composer David Holmes), to set a bleak future. Since the channels are limited, it’s nothing I’d call robust yet it still more than sufficient for a movie such as this.|
OVERALL – 3.0/5
|Overall, one could call Code 46 the Minority Report (which also co-starred Samantha Morton) on a stricter budget but more compact story and although I probably give the edge to MR mainly due to the direction from Spielberg, this is still a nice little future thriller featuring great performances by Tim Robbins and Samantha Morton. The Blu-ray released by Olive is rather basic with only a trailer but the video and audio transfers are at least above average.|
