This review is about the PRODUCT, and not the FILM.
Well to be quite honest, I am very disappointed with this release. At no point during the film are you convinced you are watching a "high definition" transfer, as it is not that much superior to the DVD release. Now, there will be some who would argue of the films age (1979), but that is no excuse, considering many films which are much older than this look stunning on Blu-ray.
At 07:57 after the guard says "welcome to Alcatraz", there is a flash of lightning followed by a shot of Clint standing in his cell, supposedly naked. On the DVD at the exact same spot you can see he is in fact wearing jeans in this shot. So, by that conclusion you have to think this Blu-ray is cropped, as it does not show the full image. There are small sections of the film where fuzzy blotches are evident. For instance, at 10:08 look at the guard on the right-hand side of the screen - his black uniform is very pixelated.
If that wasn't bad enough, there are absolutely NO EXTRAS - not even a trailer.
