3.0 out of 5 stars Buyers Beware Blu Ray Is the dubbed version only, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having waited ages for this Blu Ray,I was dissapointed to find this Blu Ray contains the American dubbed version only and not the original; cockney score,this is a huge error for this release as Mike Hodges refers to the dubbed version he is watching and tells viewers the original version is on the main Audio track. I am sorry to say there is nobody poking their bugle in on this release,picture quality wise everything looks good and solid and special features are the same as the original dvd release

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Blu Ray Release, 15 April 2014
I imported this blu ray from the states, however it is getting released here in the UK on June 23rd 2014,I would imagine it will be the exact same print.This is a real gem of a Clint Eastwood movie that has suffered with mediocre releases on dvd,The blu ray is 16.9 and after a grainy start we get a really beautiful picture to behold, The church scenes and the cornfield chase look nice and vibrant and this continues throughout the movie, Sound is very serviceable English 1.0 DTS HD.
Features wise on this one there was an isolated score and trailer But I don't know if this will make it on the UK release.
Roll on Tightrope coming out on Blu ray UK in June And other Clint fans might like to know Coogan's bluff Blu ray is available to order from Amazon Germany, it's a very nice print too ,most of the grain has been cleaned up and it looks great

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Blu Ray Upgrade of a Classic movie, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this blu ray from Amazon Germany, it is the same version which is getting released in the UK shortly,
I love this film,the story, the acting and everything abouth this film is great.A classic Clint Film.
The Blu Ray is a very big improvement over the dvd, the picture is nice and sharp and the sound has been remastered as well.
The opening scenes where Frank is getting taken to Alcatraz stands out, the rain belts out hard in the surround speakers, picture wise the scene where Morris meets English in the Library was a good tester scene, all the books in the background stand out on the shelves.
All in All a good upgrade for the price but once again no extras !
I find it amazing that a legend like Clint Eastwood gets poor treatment on dvd/blu rays.

3.0 out of 5 stars High Grain Transfer for Blu Ray, 5 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great to see this classic film on Blu Ray format. Buyers however should be aware the transfer is a haze of grain , I suppose if it had been cleaned up and interfered with we would complain about that as well.
compared to the standard dvd though I was quite shocked to see its a marvelous improvement over the dvd, the dvd looks blurry , the blu ray is very bright, sharp, Anamorphic and the sound has been remastered as well. A mixed bag on blu ray this one, diffucult to say if it's worth upgrading or not.
A lot of people are going to be dissapointed though.
