Screen Media provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.


The Jesus rolls on. Hours after being released from prison, Jesus Quintana (JOHN TURTURRO) pairs up with fellow misfits Petey (BOBBY CANNAVALE) and Marie (AUDREY TAUTOU), and embark on a freewheeling joyride of petty crime and romance.



The only feature here is an Audio Commentary with actor/writer/director John Turturro and co-star Bobby Cannavale.


VIDEO – 4.5/5

The Jesus Rolls comes to Blu-ray through Screen Media, presented with a 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer. For the most part, the picture here looks good, detail is relatively sharp throughout, especially the close-ups, and colors are vivid and bright.

AUDIO – 4.25/5

The movie comes with a standard but effective DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. This is mostly a dialogue-fueled film so the majority of the audio comes through the center channel with some modest depth via the front and rear channels, filled with ambient noises and a forgettable music/score.
