As my title states, I think this is a brilliant film; but this release is let down by the lack of extras. The DVD release contained Deleted Scenes, an Alternate Ending, Featurettes and Trailers. Why Universal didn't see fit to transfer those extras onto this Blu-ray release is beyond me.
Anyone looking at this review is probably considering upgrading from their DVD to BD, so should you? For me the answer is a resounding YES! The picture and sound quality on this blu-ray are impeccable; and this will definitely be a film I will dig out to show friends just how good blu-ray can be. Colours are stunning and the pictures is crystal clear. Sometimes, due to the hyper-real look of the film, it almost looks 3D.
The only sound option is a 5.1 DTS HD-Master track with optional English subtitles. This is an excellent audio track which really utilises all the speakers and has a rich, cinema sound to it.
Because I love the film so much I really wanted to give this release 5 stars, but in good conscience couldn't do that; so I have removed 1 star for the lack of extras. But, if like me, this is one of your favourite films then upgrade and keep your DVD just for the extras to watch the extras.
