Quite simply the best films of 2011. The best MMA film to date with powerhouse performances from Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton & Nick Nolte (the latter surely deserved an Oscar nomination).
The only let down as far as the Blu-Ray is concerned is the picture. Right from the off there is significant grain to be seen which comes and goes throughout the entire film. At one point i had to eject the disc to check if i had the DVD copy in and not the Blu-Ray, unfortunately i hadn't. The sound and special features are great but the best film of last year deserved a lot better. Still 5 stars.

As a huge fan of this film i have owned almost every incarnation. I first purchased the VHS then the DVD but after noticing various cuts (the counterfiet bust at the beginning and the attack at the bank tellers house) i subsequently purchased the Region 1 DVD as this was uncut.
I took a leap of faith and purchased the Blu-Ray and am so glad i did. The picture & sound on this are nothing short of brilliant (another example of an old film far outshining some newer releases). Extra's are the same as the Special Edition DVD but most importantly the film is totally uncut. Enjoy this modern classic.

Directed by Peter Jackson between his low budget slasher pics (Bad Taste & Braindead) and his big budget adventures with Frodo & co what starts out as a kooky comedy turns into a horror without missing a beat.
A great cast, beautiful locations & some good (but dated) CGI make this one of the most enjoyable & under-rated films ever.
The Blu Ray picture and sound is an improvement on the DVD and also includes the theatrical (109mins) & directors cut (122mins), an introduction by Peter Jackson (which I believe was made for the… Read more
