This story is of a business man from Atlanta. One weekend in this drama takes a business man out on a canoe trip into a fight for his life. "Deliverance" is a movie version of the novel of the same name by James Dickey. In "Deliverance," the group on the canoe trip must find help, but are soon confronted by men who live in the woods and have intentions of extreme violence. This DVD is a special edition and it includes a soundtrack from the movie, as well as documentaries on the making of the movie. Stars of the DVD include Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty, Jon Voigt, and Bill McKinney. "Deliverance" is rated R and is not appropriate for children as it includes violent and disturbing scenes., Director John Boorman's harrowing adaptation of James Dickey's best-selling novel is a nightmarish descent into backwoods Americana. When four unsuspecting urbanites head into the mountains of northern Georgia for a weekend canoe trip, they have no idea what's in store for them. The group's macho leader, Lewis Medlock (Burt Reynolds), is driven by Hemingway-esque notions of man's ability to conquer nature, while his three friends--Bobby Trippe (Ned Beatty), Drew Ballinger (Ronny Cox), and Ed Gentry (Jon Voight)--aren't so sure. As the men begin to navigate their way down the precarious rapids, they discover that nature isn't the only one out to get them. The eventual appearance of two menacing hillbillies turns the vacation into an all-out nightmare.Photographed by the great Vilmos Zsigmond (MCCABE & MRS. MILLER, THE DEER HUNTER), DELIVERANCE is a compelling meditation on the dangers of masculine ritual. Reynolds dives headlong into the role that would make him a superstar, as does Beatty, whose legendary big-screen debut will never be forgotten. Boorman's thriller made two other lasting contributions to the pop-culture lexicon: the dueling-banjos sequence and the infamous line, "Squeal like a pig!"Product DetailsEdition:Deluxe EditionNumber of Discs:1Rating:R (MPAA)Film Country:USAUPC:085391165125Additional DetailsGenre:Action/AdventureFormat:DVDDisplay Format:Deluxe Edition"...Its genre's one true masterpiece....DELIVERANCE intends to stir both soul and conscience..." -- Rating: A+Entertainment Weekly - Glenn Kenny (03/10/1995)5 stars out of 5 -- "Thrillingly shot by Vilmos Zsigmond with a devastating immediacy....It's generally accepted that Burt gave his best performance under Boorman's direction..."Total Film - Neil Smith (10/01/2007)3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Vilmos Zsigmond's canoeing catastrophe remains hypnotic..."USA Today - Mike Clark (09/21/2007)5 stars out of 5 -- "It's a story that explores an interesting moral grey line, and as such this survivalist tale has never dated."Ultimate DVD - David Richardson (04/01/2008)
