Misconduct Blu-ray Review

Misconduct Blu-ray.jpg

There’s a reason “Misconduct” didn’t get a wide release.

In “Misconduct,” the story revolves around a young lawyer named Ben. His career is on the rise (even though he’s unscrupulous), but his marriage is suffering a bit. Things become interesting for Ben when he reconnects with an ex-girlfriend (Emily) who has provided him with valuable intel about a CEO whose pharmaceutical company conducted deadly clinical trials. Unfortunately, as Ben seeks to make a life changing case against Arthur, things begin to spiral wildly out of control. To say anything more would be entering spoiler territory, but suffice to say, you can expect plenty of twists and turns.

“Misconduct” poses the question “How can a film with this much talent be so bad?” One would think that a movie starring Al Pacino, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Malin Akerman, Alice Eve and Julia Stiles would at least be watchable, but it’s not. At all.

First of all, I’m not even sure what kind of movie this is. Is it a thriller, drama, legal thriller, unintentional comedy, or all of the above? Who knows! What I do know is that it’s an absolute trainwreck of a movie. From the brain dead dialogue and atrocious editing to the slasher film like score and Al Pacino’s unidentifiable oddball accent, it’s simply baffling how this preposterous twist filled movie made it past the script stage let alone the screen.


Presentation: 2.40:1 1080p. How does it look? The transfer is so-so since the dark look of the movie isn’t exactly a feast for the eyes.

Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? In a word, mediocre.

* Digital copy.
* Lionsgate trailers and a “Misconduct” trailer.
* 3 deleted scenes.
* The Making of Misconduct- A standard making of that contains interviews, plot and character discussions and film clips.
