Okay, lets talk about the difference between grain....and sharpness. The Blu ray transfer of this film is pin sharp,thats because the focus puller and camera man on the original film crew did a very good job and got everything in perfect focus!! The Blu Ray transfer does exemplify the characteristics of the film stock used in 1968....remember this is a film shot entirely on location in an almost semi/documentary style using film stock suited to low light levels and with a minimum use of suplementary lighting, by nature the film stock can be slightly grainy in places but that is no accident and can be considered a creative choice by the director to convey the gritty on the spot realism required. Actually in many ways this film set a trend, not just because of the car chase but the visual style and realistic/ urgent nature of the camera work spawned a slew of gritty action thrillers, (see French Connection/Blu Ray). There is no point in trying to compare the visual quality of a Blu Ray film like "Bullit" to a Blu Ray Bond film, for one thing the visual styles are so disparate as to be incomparable, Bond films present a saturated hyper reality, a high gloss to go with the high fantasy, "Bullitt" is a gritty cop thriller, it doesn't need cleaned up or made glossy like a modern film, watch it as it was intended to be, this Blu ray is good, its sharp, its clear, its grainy in places, its how it should be. I have the DVD and the Blu Ray is far superior...enjoy.

There have been some pretty tough reviews concerning the picture quality of this blu ray. (I assume everyone knows the movie itself is great). I have to suggest that a direct comparison between the dvd and the blu ray shows what a massive improvement has been made. It's never going to "pop" off the screen the way some modern films do...... but the original footage was never capable of doing that. This blu ray is as good as Bullitt will ever look and it is a very big improvement over the dvd.

Format: DVD
This film demonstrates to contemporary Hollywood just how to make a superb thriller without having an explosion every 5 minutes. You know its a classic from the opening shot. Lalo Schifrin's insistent theme kicks in over the credits and the rollercoaster ride starts.

McQueen is marvellous as a Frank Bullitt a no-nonsense, and somewhat rebellious detective who is having no truck with authority. Robert Vaughn, who I've always liked, but never really rated as an actor, is excellent here as Walter Charmers (who is anything but charming!). The scenes between him and McQueen are riveting. Theres the famous car chase of course, which is great, but watching it again recently, the thing that struck me was the completely realistic Hospital scenes. Its all very clinical if you'll excuse the pun.

On disc 1:

There is a commentary by the directory Peter Hyams and a trailer.

On Disc 2:

Documentary 1 'The Cutting Edge: The Magic Of Movie Editing' narrated by Kathy Bates

Documentary 2 'Steve McQueen: The Essence Of Cool' a film about McQueen.

3 'Bullitt: Steve McQueen's Commitment To Reality'.

Of the extras the commentary is probably the best bit, but the film itself is reason alone to buy these discs.

Although at the time, he was still reeling from the after-effects of doing "The Thomas Crown Affair", here star Steve McQueen gave what was possibly the best performance of his life and career, and one that has matured all the more with the passing of time.
"Bullitt", released in 1968, is a very neat, clipped and stylish thriller which, although the basic plot ia little weak, does not detract from this. Known for "that car chase", where McQueen carves up San Francisco in pursuit of a hot rodding black Pontiac
, the actual story focuses on a police operation to guard a mafioso before he gives evidence against his friends in the mob, which goes wrong. McQueen as Detecive Frank Bullitt is as always, clipped and razor-sharp, letting his senses tell half of the story for him. He's excellent, his casting is perfect. Also on board is Robert Vaughn, himself in excellent form as a scheming politician, and Jackie Bissett as Frank's love interest.
No its not the best thriller ever made, but frame for frame it is good.
Now you too have the chance to own this classic on DVD, restored in widescreen and with renewed picture clarity and a a good selection of extras to make this one wicked addition to your collection. If you never buy another McQueen film, buy this one, you will not be disappointed!

We all see films that stick in your mind for various reasons, the photography, acting, storyline, atmosphere, direction....Bullit has it all, I remember seeing when it was released in the late sixties and have never tired of it...it still evokes the atmosphere of the time and represented a new landmark in crime movies...the director was not afraid enhance the action of film with relaxed breathing spaces...the scene in the restaurant ( shot at a real restaurant from outside looking in) the jazz music the wondeful serene morning when Bullit parks his car and goes and buys his weeks precooked meals at the chinese grocers opposite his girlfriends apartment If only my shopping trips were so simple!!!! Mqueen superb in this roll as a laid back supercop apparently turned down the part as Dirty Harry...would that have suited him? There is, as in any good film, an excellent supporting cast especially Robert Vaughan who oozes just the right amount of sleaze, Don Gordon his sidekick and Norman Fell his boss. With the magnificent backdrop of San Francisco a stunning car-chase and the airport shoot out (copied in Heat) this film is almost perfect.
