Lord of War 2D at Wal-Mart?

Does anyone happen to know the price of Lord of War 2-disc at Wal-Mart? I know YMMV with Wal-Mart, but I was trying to find out if it was cheaper than the $19.99 at Best Buy.

Thanks!

I just picked one up today for $16.87, so yea, it's definetly cheaper.

It's weird too, my Wal-Mart doesn't even have the single disc, only the 2 disc set. There's even a big display in the front of the store.

So Wal-Mart has a 2D package and everybody else has a 1D?

What's on the second disc?

Ditto on my Walmart, they had ONLY the 2-disc set, which was priced at $13.87. Nice bonus there

Is Lord of War worth the blind buy?

I have two Walmarts near me, and on is at 16.87 and the other is at 14.87. Considering I just paid 19.19 at DDD, I think that will get returned.... Now, I did not hold the DVD in my hand, but both CSR's said it was the two disc version.

I think it's a very entertaining movie, and I know others do like it as well. But its hard to say whether a single person will like it. It's from the guy that did Gattaca and Simone so that might give you a taste of his style. It's a drama movie, though with dark comedy/satire mixed in.

$15.87 at my local Walmart, and they too only stocked the 2 disc set. Thanks for the heads up AsmodeusVice because I was ready to pay $19.99 at Best Buy.

My local Walmarts never have anything for cheap, at least cheaper than elsewhere. $19.9x here.

I called all 3 of my walmarts. One said they only have the 1 disc version, one said they are already sold out and the other says they have it for $16.97. I wonder if the first guy assumed it was the 1 disc version.

Sold, I wasn't even giving it a second look until you brought up Simone.

Walked into my Walmart and got the two disc version 14.87 last night. Like stated before, my Walmart only had the 2 disc edition.

I went to one Wal Mart, where it was $16.something, but it was sold out. I went to another one about 10 miles away, and they had a grip of 'em.

I ended up buying it there for the same price. I usually don't go through all that trouble for a dvd that you can find anywhere, but I guess i just got stubborn and "had to have it" at this price.

Now on to watching it tomorrow. Let's see if it's worth it.

Has anyone watched the documentary on it yet?
