5.0 out of 5 stars "Bring Me My Arrows Of Desire...Bring Me My Chariot Of Fire..."
*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE USA 'BOOK PACK' BLU RAY REISSUE and THE 2 UK VARIANTS ***

Little will prepare fans of "Chariots Of Fire" for this BLU RAY reissue - the picture quality is SENSATIONAL - and for a British film made on a budget in 1981 - that says a lot. Also - re-watching it in 2012 (the year of the 30th Olympiad in England) - it's nice to find that...

3.0 out of 5 stars great film, terrible DVD
Film: 5
DVD: 0
The film is, of course wonderful. I will not go over ground covered in the other reviews here, except to say that this is a beautiful, moving and inspiring film. I remember seeing it in my school hall when I was 9 years old and hadn't seen it again until I viewed this DVD. The years have only sderved to improve the film; comparing it to modern...

Wonderful story and one to watch over and over again. I would highly recommend it. All modern day athletes should be required to watch it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Original DVD of Chariots of Fire, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good film to revisit in this year of the Olympics, with its iconic theme tune. Did not achieve full satisfaction rating because the sound volume on this recording is low, and requires the playback system to be set to high, or even maximum volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chariots of Fire (30th Anniversary Limited Edition), 18 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant film, made better with the added effects of blu-ray. A must for addition to anybody's DVD library, even though there are errors in the history in the film!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a DVD, 6 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a DVD and it's the one my wife asked for. It works. Not sure what else one can say if requested to write a review for something as generic as a DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chariots of Fire, 31 Aug 2012
By 
Cameron Greaves (Cardiff, Wales, GB) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has always been an excellent film. I purchased it because I wanted to see it again having been reminded of it when listening to its haunting theme music while watching the Olympics 2012. I was not disappointed and having the DVD arrive in Latvia - I live in Latvia not in Wales - promptly and painlessly merely added to my pleasure at making this purchase.

This was a must-see before the GB Olympics to remind us of what we have been and what to hope for again. It was a delight to re-visit.

3.0 out of 5 stars amazing movie, 12 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This eagerly awaited D.V.D., although seen before in the cinema, proved to be a disappointment inasmuch as the sound quality was very poor. I had to turn the sound up to between 90 and 100, when a normal sound level would have been 30 to 40.

Perhaps on reflection I aught to have returned it?.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. A great classic. Can beat any of the new stuff around. A harty story with unashamed true life values.
