Great film, good extras - extended cut of film
on 28 January 2010
The film is great - a really fun swashbuckler and just as good as I remembered it.
It's great to see this film uncut for the first time in the UK since it was in the cinemas - this 12 cert version is a full 18 years overdue!
Note though that this is the extended version of the film, with roughly an extra 12 minutes of footage. Personally, I'd have preferred the theatrical version - or the choice of both (this is blu ray after all).
The transfer quality is not the best, but is perfectly adequate, and there's a decent selection of special features too.
The menus are a bit basic, but I view this as a good thing as it keeps the useful resume functionality (enabling you to stop the film and pick up from where you left off - as you can with DVDs), which is a function sorely missing from blu ray discs with flashier interfaces.
On the whole then, a great addition to your collection, especially if you don't own it already on DVD.
