Well,I just thought that I should give my view on LOTM Blu-ray,firstly,the usual excellent service from Amazon!!!! released on Monday,arrived at my door early Tuesday morning,and at a very reasonable price.
Now,the blu-ray,it,s pointless talking about the film itself,everybody knows the storyline,there was quite a lot of negative reviews when LOTM was released on blu-ray in America,most of which were about the "darkness" of the transfer,which I "kinda understand",BUT,dark is DARK,the night time scenes are supposed to be DARK,in fairness to these reviewers I have to say that the blu-ray is much darker than the dvd,but in that darkness is a clarity of picture that the dvd doesn,t show,good picture quality on the dvd mind you,so,I definitely give this blu-ray transfer "thumbs up",I give it 5 out of 5 because of the clarity/sound,and of course most of all the Film itself!!!
A wee question though,like one of the other reviewers I,ve had both region 2 dvd and the extended region i dvd,there are "more" scenes in the extended dvd,but I didn,t see much extension on this definitive version on blu-ray??
maybe I missed it?
All in all Last of the Mohicans Blu-ray is a must-buy for lovers of the film,and general movie fans too,in my opinion of course!!!!!in fairness to the dvd I dont think there,s a huge jump in picture quality with this blu-ray transfer,but there is enough of an improvement for this blu-ray to be well recommended.
