Main Menu Dropping this DVD into their player, the viewer is immediately rewarded with the soothing tones of Maurice Jarre's "Allie's Theme" taken straight from The Mosquito Coast Sound Track which plays as a background accompaniment whilst the main menu is displayed on the screen. This would have been a nice touch, but it turns out to be just a roughly-edited 30 second continuous loop and it immediately dashes initial hopes that the full musical soundtrack might have been included on the DVD.

The DVD included in this product requires even more careful handling than usual as it is actually double-sided. One side features the movie in it's original wide-screen format and on the other, edited down to a standard size suitable for regular televisions.

Chapter Selection After becoming accustomed to the menu system, which uses a bizarre icon of a mosquito as a pointer, it doesn't take long to find the one DVD bonus item that has been included, and it's an absolute beauty - the original theatrical trailer for the movie. Like all good trailers, it grabs your attention right from the start and doesn't let go. It runs for two and a half minutes and River pops up repeatedly throughout it.

"Some said he was a genius.
Some thought it was madness.
He wanted to change the world,
and when the world wouldn't listen,
he found a world that would.

To a land, trapped in the past,
came a man with a vision of the future.

To a savage wilderness,
came a man at odds with himself.

A man, who would take those who loved him
to the edge of civilization,

and beyond.
