The muffled Dolby Digital track is sort of a disappointment, and more extras would be greatly appreciated, considering all the dram that went behind the camera for this particular film. Most people who has seen this film would know by now that there was a different version of Payback, with different plot twist and ending, before the original director Brian Helgeland was fired by Gibson due to creative difference. You can find plenty scenes and action sequences which were not in the final version in the short trailer, that alone can tell you how much materials we missed! Personally I would love to see the alternative version included, with a "fly on the wall" behind the scenes documentary, in a Special Limited Edition package.
People complained about "Payback" having too much shadow of the "Pulp Fiction" fame. I do not know how to argue with that. Because it could be, even though it does not intend to, since Pulp Fiction has been the champion reference for any other films that is slightly noirish, violent, and full of cussing. I would only say that this film might vastly improve if it is more action-oriented. Overall, Payback is an above-average gangster noir, entertaining, but forgetable. Whether the alternative version is a better one, we will never know, or won't we?
