The Trust involves two Vegas cops (Cage and Wood) who stumble upon the location of a hidden vault belonging to local drug dealers. Immediately, they devise a master plan to make off with the mad stacks of cash they are sure are stored within. But what they find inside puts their lives in grave danger. (Gary Reber)

Special features include commentary with Directors Alex and Benjamin Brewer, the featurettes The Dynamics Of A Duo: Nicolas Cage And Elijah Wood (HD 05:38) and the Visuals Of Vegas (HD 05:27), upfront previews, and an UltraViolet digital copy.

The 1.85:1 1080p AVC picture exhibits a natural appearance with realistic contrast that balances deep black levels with revealing shadow delineation and bright highlights, such as the bright lights of the Vegas strip. Night scenes are nicely defined. The color palette, while naturally hued, uses strong primary hues for effect. Fleshtones are perfectly realistic. Resolution is excellent, with fine detail revealed throughout, especially during close-ups of facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture. Lighting design enhances the generally good looks of the picture and adds to the pleasing imagery. Overall, this is an effectively satisfying picture with good dynamic contrasts. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused throughout, with enhanced atmospherics and sound effects, including gunfire and a drilling segment through an apartment floor. The atmospherics and sound effects extend at times to the surrounds. The music score is varied and provides good surround envelopment. Dialogue is consistently intelligible and generally well integrated, spatially. Deep bass is limited, though natural bass, such as in the music, enhances the natural quality of the sonics. Nuanced sounds also enhance the realism. The sonics sound perfectly realistic and makes for a satisfying experience in support of the visuals. (Gary Reber)
