Well Gibson had for a while intended to release this film without subtitles, or at least he said. So it's a reasonable question. But yes, there are subtitles in it.

Also there's a bouncing ball for the song and dance number at the end.

personally I hope the DVD has the option to turn subtitles off. I think it would have been more powerful a film without them. You don't really need to understand them to get the point.

I think it would be cool to have the option to turn the subtitles off, since I've been curious as to how the movie would play. I think it's neat to do stuff like that once in a while, such as watching "Chinatown" in black-and-white or viewing "Spirited Away" with the sound and subtitles turned off.

you probably will be able to turn them off since htere is also a spanish option as well. (also, only real cheap dvd's use burned in subs for forgien language movies.

Hey! I've watched "Chinatown" in black-and-white too! (I thought I was the only one!)

Wow, some people will prefer no subtitle to get the full effect? I thought you get the full effect by understanding what they say, otherwise why even put dialogues in the movie.

That's what makes it even more crucial to understand what those few words are. In a movie with few dialogues, the makers try to use as little as possible and when they have no choice, they put in dialogues where it's necessary to get the full effect of the film.
