GOOD FILM, GOOD DVD
on 24 November 2014
First off, this review is for the ' Classic British ' release of Bear island, and to be honest i wasn't really expecting too much after reading a couple of reviews on amazon. No need to worry though as the picture quality is very good. Framed at 2:35:1 and 16x9, the image is crisp, colourful and thoroughly enjoyable. The box does state extensive remastering and restoration, but don't expect near HD quality, this is a 1979 movie and improvements could still be made here and there. I viewed on a 32 inch screen with no problems.
To anyone who might be a little wary of forking out for this release, don't worry.....cheap prices at the moment and you won't regret it.
Can't comment on the other labels out there; could be good, could be bad...... just stick to the British dvd.
