5.0 out of 5 stars A film for the boys...
Is there a better film made about motor racing? I doubt it. Due to it's age, it is a fascinating snapshot of the period of LeMans racing before daft chicanes where put into the Mulsanne Straight, and racers were real heroes putting their life on the line. Forget all about the weak love interest story that pops up now and again, this is a high octane fuel, retro cool,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Shabby BD authoring
After 41 years this is still one of the greatest car racing films ever and unlikely to be surpassed for sheer realism.

The Blu-ray has OK picture and fine sound but has been shabbily produced.

The problem lies in the DTS-HD MA audio.

Whilst fine during the film, there is no audio on the DTS-HD MA tracks during the main menu, when the mono...

This review is from: Le Mans [DVD] [1971] (DVD)
If your expecting lots of diolog from this film then then you'll be disappointed its a good 20 minutes before a word is spoken, this film is about the cars and the racing and if that's what you want then it delivers.

Kept on freezing at the same spot. There is clearly a defect on the actual disc. After trying many times to fast-forward past the defect, eventually managed to watch the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Racing Film, 1 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Le Mans [Blu-ray] [1971] (Blu-ray)
Not many words in the film but then it is a racing film. The sounds are great and the cinematography is amazing. McQueen is a legend and is the epitomy of cool. Great soundtrack as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real 'must have', 29 July 2011
This review is from: Le Mans [DVD] [1971] (DVD)
I had the original dvd which was good... This is fantastic as the sound is now much more immersive, and the picture quality is 100% better.
At last the film has been done justice, and will make you want to watch it again, rather than watched once and left on the shelf to gather dust!!
I did wonder when it was released if it really was worth buying, having already bought the 'Old'copy, but having watched it, It was definitely worth the money!
(Would be nice to think that the same could be done with 'The Battle of Britain' Film - imagine that with surround sound!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendaey, 30 July 2005

THE best motorsports movie out there. Can't stop watching this over & over again, the revised sound and wide-screen available on DVD really give it the final touch of perfection - especially that scene when all the engines fire up (as featured on the BSkyB ad). Shame Steve can't witness that this - one of his least successful films, and the one which forced his own production company SOLAR into liquidation due to cost over-runs actually turned out to be an all-time classic. Wifes and non-car fans are non-plussed obviously due to lack of "story" beyond the struggle of the drivers, but hey ho, can't be all things to all people. BUY THIS. Then buy it again.
