A fun Roman Polanski (Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby) thriller starring Harrison Ford, Frantic was clearly one of the first DVDs that Warner Brothers ever put on the market. The film not only has no extras, but it's not even widescreen. The full-screen standard transfer looks like the same one used when creating the VHS, with slightly sharper resolution thanks to the DVD technology. The sound in Dolby Surround isn't digital and is only available in English. There are no theatrical trailers, production notes, bios, or interactive screens. Warner Brothers' interest in releasing this disc must have been purely experimental -- testing out the new DVD format with some of its less popular titles.
Boring without much sympathy for main character. Name of movie should have been LOST AND FOUND.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

solid but unspectacular
Polanski's most commercial film following his exile in France. Ford plays an American doctor whose wife vanishes not long after they arrive in France. His maddening search for her leads him to a mysterious woman (Emmanuelle Seigner, who later became Mrs. Polanski) who holds the key to his wife's disappearance.
Ford's great performance proves that he was more than an action hero.
The only thing keeping this thriller from achieveing classic status is the weak, undefined villains, who make this film surprisingly less intense than expected given Polanski's real-life experience with this sort of ordeal.
