Format: DVD
I seriously doubt whether there has been a more deserving Oscar performance from a leading actor. Pacino is simply stunning in this virtuoso performance, he dominates the film from start to finish and the act is nothing short of magnificent. Playing retired Army Lt Col Frank Slade, Pacino takes the viewer through a whole range of emotions and feelings, from the dark black humour to tragic despondency; from standing ovation rooting to fatherly love it really does have it all.
Don't get me wrong, the film isn't all about Pacino, a young Chris O'Donnell puts on a great turn as the naive schoolboy and for all of Pacino's dominance of centre stage it's great credit to O'Donnell that his performance also shines.
Both characters are ably supported by a whole host of extras, like O'Donnell's school colleagues who play the rich spoilt arrogant role fantastically well, Gabrielle Anwar as the infamous tango partner who is grace and elegant personified, Leonard Gaines as the Ferrari salesman and I could go on.
The actual film composition is just scene after scene of great drama and emotion and you could pick any one of a couple of dozen of classic moments , just pick your favourite from these perfect instances; Franks and Charles's first meeting, the airplane scene, the Thanksgiving dinner, the school disciplinary council, the suicide attempt and the Ferrari test drive. I could mention several others that are just as good, there really isn't a weak moment in the whole film.
A must for any film fan.

One of those films that I wish I could watch again as if for the first time. If you are a Pacino fan in the slightest then this is a 'must see' for you!
The 'Tango' scene is definitely one of my all time favourite movie moments, Gabriel Anwar is just stunning!

Format: DVD
Who else could pull it off, a black comedy about a blind retired officer who in all honesty you should hate. he rude blunt and appears to be the most arrogant selfish man to grace the silver screen. But pacino makes you love him. lets face it even when he played satan him self you couldnt help but root for him.
He recrutes a young broke student to look after him for the week end and their time together helps bring out the soldiers softer side. one of the warmest feel good films i have ever seen. Pacinos defence of his friend is touching as it is inspiring. the tango dance scene has to be one of the greatest moments in cinema. alone with as good as it gets this is my favourite film of all time. im fact as far as films go this is as good as it gets. love him or hate him i pity who has never seen this master piece

Format: DVD
This one is a masterpiece. First of all because Al Pacino cuts a character he is in no way close to being in real life. He plays a retired lieutenant-colonel which is nothing, but a blind one. His blindness is the symbol, and result, of both a heroic career and a sad end because he was passed over for general. This mixture of so many emotions and feelings and frustrations is marvelously conveyed by the actor. His tone, his behavior, his general stand, his unpredictable reactions, his decision to leave this world and his second decision to stay can be read in the way he speaks, the words he uses, the expressions his blind face carries, his attitudes toward other people, etc. He is a millionaire in emotions. But it is a masterpiece for so many other reasons that I am only going to quote a few. First it is a journey, the journey of a prep school teenager, a student on a scholarship mind you, from Oregon to Cambridge, Massachusetts, then to New York, a round trip with the colonel he is taking care of for the Thanksgiving long week end. This journey, and particularly the lap to New York and the subsequent events, are an initiation. The young chap is to learn what principles are in life and that you have to stand by them, especially if you are poor and fragile in body and social status: then be strong in soul and mind and spirit. Your ethics are your only asset and power in life. He also has to learn how to understand his colonel companion and feel when he has decided to send him buy cigars while he is putting an end to his life and the gun loaded with his bullets are an impressive key to the solitary tower of growing up with death in front of you.Read more ›

Format: Blu-ray
Let me start by saying that this movie is in my favourite top 20 so my star rating is purely on the Blu-Ray product as are all my reviews.
Picture quality is a SLIGHT improvement from the DVD , but only just !
The sound is fair , although being a none action film my speakers and AV receiver wasn't really put to any real test , but the music score sounded pretty good.

The main reason this gets such a poor star rating is the lack of features of which there is a big fat ZERO!!!!
No audio choices , no behind the scenes , no commentaries , no interviews... not even a trailer , absolutely NOTHING !
Even the home menu page looks rushed and poorly designed and the whole thing just looks like it was done at 5 to 5 on a Friday by someone who had other things on their mind.

For me , given the enormous amount of space you can fit on a Blu-ray (50GB) it just seems like a waste , and no one seems to have bothered to even try as I'm sure there must be interviews/behind the scenes footage somewhere.
The DVD was the same with the lack features , so this really is the most basic of transfers which is a real shame and is a real pet hate of mine when a company who does the transfer just doesn't give you anything more , or put any real effort into making upgraded technology much better than the old !

Managed to get this for under £6 so it's the price that sold me on it and would add nicely to my Blu-Ray collection.
Minimum effort for minimum price...Hoo-Hah !
