4.0 out of 5 stars The best version but a woeful DVD copy, 1 Dec. 2011
By 
This review is from: The Bounty [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
Back in the Lean/Bolt years they both wanted to work on two movies of the Bounty. The script at the time was deemed too expensive to shoot (Accountants robbing us of a Lean masterpiece no doubt) and then many years later Dino De Laurentis bought the rights to the Bolt script(s) and this one movie THE BOUNTY was directed by Roger Donaldson.

The movie itself boasts a great script, some fine performances from Anthony Hopkins, Mel Gibson, Daniel Day Lewis, Liam Neeson, Neil Morrisey, Phil Davis, Dexter Fletcher, John Sessions and pretty much anyone who had a good agent in the 1980's.

But and it is a big BUT - this release is BAD...it is a "digital transfer" that would make a market piarate blush. The aspect ratio I can't even work out, and the great photography of the film is not served well. I am sure there must be a market for this to have a better version, and digitally remastered sound - a Vangelis soundtrack - but I am happy to watch the performances and the writing till that day!

Buy it, but imagine its a dodgy VHS you found in the attic.
