Synopsis


The Mask
Hyperactive mayhem results when a mild-manned banker discovers an ancient mask that transforms him into a zany prankster with superhuman powers in this special-effects-intensive comedy. The wildly improvisational Jim Carrey plays Stanley Ipkiss, a decent-hearted but socially awkward guy who one night finds a strange mask. Carrey's trademark energy reveals itself after Stanley puts on the mask and the banker transforms into The Mask, a green-skinned, zoot-suited fireball. The rubber-faced Mask possesses the courage to do the wild, fun things that Stanley fears, including romancing Tina Carlyle (Cameron Diaz). In addition to Carrey's physical talents, the film makes effective use of digital visual effects that bestow the Mask with superhuman speed, insane flexibility, and popping eyes out of a Tex Avery cartoon. The larger narrative, involving the efforts of Tina's gangster boyfriend to destroy Stanley and use the mask's powers for evil, prove less interesting than the anarchic comic set pieces, including a particularly memorable dance number to "Cuban Pete." The film delivered enough laughs to become a surprise hit and, along with the same year's Dumb and Dumber, establish Carrey's status as a comedy superstar. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

    I think the mask is hilarious! Jim Carey exceeds in his lunacy to the point of brilliance.. This is why Jim was a huge star in the 90's with his off the wall antics that will have you in stitches. Video - A single-layer 1080p VC-1 1.85:1 transfer Looks amazingly clean with minimal grain or artifacts. Colors jump off the screen and image detail is crisp with no hint of filtering. Blacks are deep and rich and flesh-tones are dead on! Audio - New Line has included a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack that is top notch! This is darn near reference quality material here, with equalization and channel mixing at near perfection levels, surrounds get a good workout with some nice discrete effects in the rears. All in all a very nice mix with punch! Extra's - Include Audio commentary with Director Chuck Russell - Return to Edge City (The Mask project documentary) - Introducing Cameron Diaz - Cartoon Logic (origins of The Masks gags) - What Makes Fido Run (training the Masked Dog) - Additional scenes with commentary with Chuck Russell Conclusion - This is a really great comedy and this Blu-ray does it complete justice! I highly recommend it.

    This movie is awesome. I had it on dvd for a long time but it got badly scratched when i accidentally dropped it on the floor, my floors are hardwood so it was bound to happen. With that said i was very bummed to see it get damaged but lucky to have found it on bluray. I must say that there is a difference in clarity and contrast by 50% so the picture looks more clear and the colors look alot better. If you loved the mask and want to get the best picture possible, get this bluray before they run out of stock. I was one of the lucky few to have gotten both Ace Ventura movies on bluray. You cant find those titles anywhere now and if you do it wont be for a good price since they are now rare.

    Recently I purchased Deadpool and I loved it but I also purchased this movie as well. The Mask is Deadpool before Deadpool with a family friendly rating. Breaking the 4th wall and all the jokes but you can watch it at any age. Jim Carey and Cameron Diaz in their break out roles. If you want a good movie at an affordable price this is the movie i would buy.

    This is easily Jim Carrey's greatest picture! Not only that but in my opinion this was one of the funniest films of the `90s. This is such a fun movie that you can see it 10 times and it's still as fun as the first time. The film stars Jim Carrey in another amazing performance and the BEAUTIFUL Cameron Diaz in her debut.

    You like that headline? I just blew your mind, probably. Jim Carrey starred in 3 movies in 1994: The Mask, Dumb and Dumber, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Only one of them starred a crazy hot Cameron Diaz. This remains one of the best comic book films, even 22 years later. Give it a watch.

    Not Carrey's Best

    Posted

    A huge box office success, ‘The Mask’ was one Jim Carrey movie I found to be just average in terms of entertainment value. For some reason, it seemed to me that the cartoonish animatics actually hindered rather than helped, his performance. But fans will still enjoy this New Line dvd that has plenty of bonus extras.

    This was my favorite movie growing up as a kid. Jim Carrey was the perfect casting for this role. It's a quality plot and a fresh idea for a movie. Also, if you've seen it, you know that Cameron Diaz was definitely a new crush since this was her breakout role.
