4.0 out of 5 stars Overall a great transfer of a brilliant film! 30 Dec 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
My rating is more for the blu-ray transfer as a product than the film itself. You can find plenty of reviews of the film elsewhere - in my opinion, it's a brilliant film that ought to be seen by any fan of musical theatre or even American history.

In terms of the package, this is a great deal. The main feature is in 1080p24, which looks sharp and pleasing most fo the time, with only occasional shots showing up weak filming and/or transfer, with a lot of graininess or faded colours. These shots are very rare though. Occasionally, movement seems a little too smooth too, which may indicate some digital post-processing, but it's far from distracting.

The killer elements here are the soundtrack and the extras. I only have a stereo setup, but the soundtrack was hair-raisingly good! The best rendition of this fantastic score I've experienced.

The extras were great too, giving some nice insight into the making of this film and the history of the book. I especially liked the Liza Minelli extra, which although drawn out, is worth watching to see Liza singing Nowadays at the end.

In case it bothers anyone, all the extras seem to be 4:3 DVD quality (except the commentary I assume, but I haven't tried that), but still very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant show brilliantly captured in blu-ray 4 Jan 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Surely one of the most intelligent satires written of post First World War America. This 'Musical' - which category seems to trivialise it - portrays Chicago as a town so used to violence that murder is seen as entertainment by the murderers, the lawyers, the prison warders, the press and its avid readers. The lyrics are sharp and witty; the music captures the era and is both ear-catching and memorable; the sets are strikingly imaginative and, as for the actors,they show a talent for singing and dancing one would never have suspected of them. All captured in picture-perfect surround sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for a rainy day 5 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow! All singing, all dancing AND Richard Geer! What more could a girl want on a rainy day. Tune up before the video starts because you'll be singing along before you know it. Catherine and Renee are slinky and sexy, Queen Latifah absolutely brilliant as Mamma Morton and Richard improves every shot he's in. In most musicals, you get a few really good tunes and forget the others. Not in this musical - every song is catchy and memorable. The pace is so fast you'll lose at least 2lb in weight just keeping up with it. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chicago DVD 24 Jan 2014
By d214
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this as a belated Christmas present for myself and my daughter but we haven't got around to watching it yet! I have seen the film before and I loved it. Hence 5 stars. The delivery was within the time predicted. Great casting and songs. Hopefully will get a group of friends together to watch it for a girls night in (if I can get rid of hubby and son for an evening!). It's down to personal taste I suppose, so other musicals I like range from oldies like Singing in the Rain, High Society, Top Hat and Calamity Jane through to Grease, Dirty Dancing and Evita!
