5.0 out of 5 stars Region 1 Directors cut, 15 Mar 2011
I recommend fans of the movie considering the R2 dvd or blu ray to avoid and get the Region 1 directors cut. It is the most complete version of the film you can get being totally uncut which is the main reason for avoiding the British versions, but also has bonus features plus original American theatrical version. The picture and audio quality are great upscaled on my blu ray player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray, 15 Mar 2011
I will assume you already know the movie and are trying to decide whether or not to upgrade to blu-ray. In my opinion the transfer is fantastic, both picture and audio quality are excellent given the age of the film, making this the best version you can get and well worth the upgrade considering the price if you are a fan.

If you already own Raw Deal on blu ray the extras here are the same so it might be worth getting the American version which is region free and has different and possibly more interesting features.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 4 Jan 2011
A truly amazing production, Alfie Boe is incredible as Valjean. I have become an instant fan. The rest of the cast also shine especially Matt Lucas I thought gave a great performance. The downside for me was Nick Jonas, the producers seem to have chosen him in the hope of gaining a new younger audience for the show. As a pop singer I didn't feel he was suited to such an important and challenging vocal role. His voice lacks the power of the cast members he was singing with and didn't really do justice to the solo songs. At the end of the show Michael Ball doing the same part seemed to put him somewhat to shame. Having said that I have given 5 stars as the rest of the cast are fantastic. This… Read more
